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.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
