The warm weather couldn't have graced our presence soon enough.

Five Songs For The Nice Weather

Finally. The infamous crazy Ohio winter is now over and the weather is steady and warm. We can now all rejoice in the fact that we no longer will freeze into human popsicles. It's also the best time of the year to go outside, restock on that good old vitamin D and appreciate nature. A great accompaniment to relaxing outside after months of being prisoners to the inside is music. Here are some great songs to listen to for just relaxing and enjoying the newly warm outside:

"Finally Moving" - Pretty Lights

If you're looking for a song that is great for any kind of warm day, look no further than this song from the album Taking Up Your Precious Time released back in 2006. Its soothing electronic beats and sound are perfect for both chilling out at home and on a cruise in the car.

"Gun Shy" - Widowspeak

This song by the Brooklyn-based indie rock duo is really just a mellow track. The melody is very relaxing and the soothing nature of it creates a fantastic ambiance combined with the fresh air.

"Here Comes The Sun" - The Beatles

Classic rock never ceases to make people feel good. The Beatles were notorious for making not only songs with deep material and significance, but also for their happy and relaxing songs. "Here Comes The Sun" discusses the end of the cold winter and the welcoming of the warm weather. It is featured on Abbey Road, one of the most popular albums in rock and roll history. The album was released in 1969.

"Doin' Time" - Sublime

The three-musician group from Long Beach, California, released their third self-titled album featuring "Doin' Time" July 30, 1996. The first line of lyrics is "Summertime and the living's easy." There's your anticipation for a chill, warm summer right there!

"Mr. Blue Sky" - Electric Light Orchestra

The pop-rock band released "Mr. Blue Sky" to the United States in June of 1978. Award winning radio broadcaster Dominic King said about the song, "It was dark and misty for 2 weeks, and I didn't come up with a thing. Suddenly the sun shone and it was, 'Wow, look at those beautiful Alps.' I wrote Mr. Blue Sky and 13 other songs in the next 2 weeks." The song has been featured in many feature films including Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and The Game Plan.

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.

Urban Intellectuals

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.
