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.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

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.

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.

11098

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.
