Songs I Just Can't Skip

Having your music on shuffle can often be a tossup: you’re either gonna get a steady stream of good tunes that flow nicely from one to the next or a random smattering of songs, none of which you’re in the mood to hear. The latter (for me at least) happens way more often. It’s when my music is on shuffle, however, that I can figure out which songs are at the top of my long list of favorites. Here’s a list of songs that I can never skip over—and that you all should check out if you’re looking for new artists to get into!

1. Blue Boy - Mac Demarco

2. This Guy's In Love With You - Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass

I am very sappy and no matter what mood I'm in, this song is welcome to my ears.

3. Magic Spells - Crystal Castles

4. Walking On a Dream - Empire of the Sun

I heard this one at the Akron Marathon this past Saturday and it got me super pumped to start running (also I was just excited because they played a song I knew and liked)!

5. Gone Beyond - Bobby Birdman

6. Telephone Line - Electric Light Orchestra (ELO)

7. Shiny Things - Fanfarlo

8. Somebody That I Used to Know (feat. Kimbra) - Gotye

This was my (and everybody's) jam during my junior year of high school. I always heard it in art class, so now all I can think of is frantically asking my fellow artists if they knew what it was called. I don't think Shazam was a thing yet!

9. Jackie and Wilson - Hozier

10. One Day (At a Time) - John Lennon

11. Human - The Killers

I distinctly remember my cousin showing me this song around New Years (2008?), right after I'd gotten my purple 4th gen iPod nano for Christmas; I loved it and it was one of the first to be added to my music libary.

12. Everybody Wants to Rule the World - Tears for Fears

13. Cherry Pepsi - SAINT PEPSI

Remember the aesthetics article I wrote where I mentioned vaporwave? This is one of those songs. IT'S VERY CATCHY.

Of course, there's loads more that I'm never able to pass up in shuffle but, alas, it is week 5 and I have many an assignment to tend to. Maybe I'll follow up in the future, so look out for another list of great tunes!

11 Songs That Will Hit You In The Feels, No Doubt About It

One of my favorite things to do when it comes to music is making different playlists on Spotify. I find it so fun to go back to old songs, find new ones, and categorize them into my different playlists. We all have that one playlist that we resort to when we are really feeling some type of way — also known as a "feels" playlist. If you have one of these playlists or feel ~inspired~ to make one, here are 11 songs that are a must to add.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

Allyson Foutty

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s. Before this time, and throughout it, we often look back at the things we've learned and how they've influenced who we are as people today. Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
