Songs to Start the School Year
The Odyssey

As the summer of 2016 comes to its inevitable close, I have come to terms with my need to prepare for school. I've gotten some of my summer assignment out of the way, bought my school supplies, and kind of hyped myself up for the new year. Senior year is an important and crazy time in any high schooler's life, and the best way I find to get prepared for the upcoming school year is to find the perfect playlist. Not only should the playlist include good songs that can help you focus, but also songs to get excited and just enjoy my final moments in high school. Therefore, I've devised a list of songs I find perfect for the new school year:

1. Wait // M83

This song is suitable in most situations, including a chillout study session or a long drive with friends- play it in the background or blast it with the windows down.

2. Another Night on Mars // The Maine

A perfect song to listen to surrounded by your closest group of friends. This song is my anthem to make memories with my friends and just enjoy the company I've made over the years in my hometown.

3. Rivers and Roads // The Head and the Heart

DO NOT LISTEN TO THIS WHEN YOU ARE FEELING EMOTIONAL!! This song is perfect for reminiscing in old times as high school comes to a close.

4. Neptune // Sleeping at Last

Another song great for a study session with friends or by yourself (I find homework a lot easier with background music).

5. Autopilot // Kodaline

Some fresh music for hanging out with old friends or walking through the halls of school.

6. Heart It Races // Dr. Dog

A perfect windows down tune for adventures with friends late at night or early in the morning.

7. Lay By Me // firekid

This song gets me in such a happy and dance-y mood- perfect for parties and car rides to really enjoy the moment.

8. Chasing Rubies- Acoustic // Hudson Taylor

Studying, lounging around, going on an adventure- this song suits any scenario and is quite catchy.

9. Let's Dance to Joy Division // The Wombats

One of my favorite songs of all time- it is the model song for blasting it in the car with the windows rolled down with your best friends on a trip to somewhere great.

10. Mr. Brightside // The Killers

You know every single word and you're not entirely sure how or when you learned them. Everyone knows this song, and everyone can sing along as loud as they want.

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

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.
