20 Songs That Were Basically Written To Be Played On The Car Ride Home

So you're heading home for the weekend and if you're like me you have a long drive ahead of you. What a better way to pass the drive by quickly than with an epic playlist. Well with the help of my good friend Miranda we did just that.

1. Don't Stop Believin' by Journey

This song is a staple. Its fun and something you can jam to.

2. Castle on the Hill by Ed Sheeran

This song gives me all the feels. It takes me back to my childhood and gets me super excited to be back in my hometown.

3. Life is a Highway by Rascal Flatts

I think the title explains itself. It's a good jam for the open highway.

4. Shake it Off by Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift is just the person one must listen to while driving. It's upbeat and a good song to dance to behind the steering wheel. But please don't take your hands off the wheel.

5. All Star by Smash Mouth

Shrek. That's the only thing that comes to my head when I hear this song. It's so catchy and you can sing along. Perfect for the car.

6. Brown Eyed Girl by Jimmy Buffett

Who doesn't know this song? This one makes for one epic sing along

7. Eye of the Tiger by Survivor

For those moments when you need encouragement to make it through that last stretch of the drive.

8. Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen

This one's a classic. Proceed to sing along.

9. Homecoming by Kanye West

It kind of fits for a road trip home.

10. Jessie's Girl by Rick Springfield

Another song everyone knows that's just fun to sing.

11. Stacy's Mom by Fountains of Wayne

What is it about 90's music that makes for a good sing a long.

12. All the Small Things by blink-182

I think this one explains itself.

13. Blank Space by Taylor Swift

You had to know another T-Swift song would make an appearance.

14. Rolling in the Deep by Adele

Adele songs are such sing a longs and that is what a road trip needs.

15. Closing Time by Semisonic

This song is just a great song.

16. You're Welcome by Dwayne Johnson

Because who doesn't love Moana and Dwayne THE ROCK Johnson.

17. With a Little Help From my Friends by the Beatles

This song is perfect because you get through a road trip with the help of music, life's best friend.

18. The Climb by Miley Cyrus

Everyone channels their inner Mariah Carey when they sing this song, let's be real, and a road trip needs some of that.

19. Stressed Out by Twenty-One Pilots

Let's be real, every one is stressed. This song is an anthem.

20. Take Me Home, Country Roads by John Denver

For me this is the perfect song to put on when I'm getting close to home. It makes me thankful to be back home and with my family.

Finding the good in any situation can help you to find happiness in some of the simplest and unexpected places.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

Kinder Self - Eyes

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
