I like to pride myself on my love of super sad songs. To me, there's nothing better than driving around at night singing songs that rip your heart out... a little weird, yeah I know.

But there's something about feeling like they wrote that song just for you, for this exact moment in time, which is basically how I feel about Taylor Swift. But I won't get into that. Lately, Billie Eilish has been speaking to my soul and I love it. I can basically listen to any one of her songs and feel like she just gets it, even if she's only 17.

I can't guarantee you that you'll feel better after, but I can promise you that you'll feel a little less alone. Music truly heals.

There is definitely a time and a place for these songs, like when you're alone in your room, in the bath, or driving around late at night. If you're bad at communicating your feelings or expressing yourself, songs like this help you process and understand why you're feeling this way.

Here are my top 10 favorite songs to listen to when I'm feeling down.

1. "Who You Are" - Jessie J

For when you're doubting your self-worth.

2. "Come Out and Play" - Billie Eilish

For when you're bad at communicating your feelings.

3. "Where Were You In The Morning" - Shawn Mendes 

When you're feeling forgotten.

4. "Rise Up" - Andra Day

For when you need a reminder that you're stronger than the storm.

5. "Take Me Home" - Jess Glynne

When you remember your support system is incredible and always there for you.

6. "Colors" - Halsey

When you're loving someone through their dark times.

7. "Waves" - Dean Lewis

For when you know your life is good, but you can't stop focusing on the bad times.

8. "Hurts So Good" - Astrid S

When you're holding onto someone you shouldn't, but you'd rather hurt than feel nothing.

9. "I Can't Fall in Love Without You" - Zara Larsson

For when the relationships in your life feel one-sided, and you're the only one trying.

10.  "All Too Well (Piano Version)" - Taylor Swift

When you're missing someone so much, you're living in a haze of the good memories of the past.

It will be okay, eventually.

Breakups are hard. There's nothing comparable to the pain of losing someone you thought would be in your life forever. Someone who said all the right things at the right times. Someone who would give you the reassurance you needed, whenever you needed it. And then one day, it just... stops. Something changes. Something makes you feel like you're suddenly not good enough for him, or anyone for that matter.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.

Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.
