5 Songs You Need To Know

For the musically inclined...

Five songs that will get you through the harder days.

1. 1950 by King Princess

If you're looking for a more mellow song, this is the one for you. While the beat is less fast-paced and intense, it is still a song that you can easily sing loudly in your car. King Princess has made her mark with this song and I really hope she continues to release more music.

2. idontwannabeyouanymore by Billie Eilish

Strong female vocalists seem to be all the rage right now. Billie Eilish is taking the world by storm with her new music, but many know her for her song "ocean eyes". This song is another pretty mellow song that has really cool vocals. There is a sort of echoey aspect to this song, and mixed with the instrumental, creates an awesome song to chill out to.

3. Be My Witness by Bahamas

This is my go-to feel-good song. This song is perfect if you're spending a lot of your time going on adventures and visiting lots of new places. It's a more folksy song that I love to play when I'm walking to and from class or even when I'm just out and about. It always makes me smile and gets me in a good mood. It reminds me of being at the beach and of just hanging out with friends and having nothing to worry about.

4. Blur by MØ

My mom actually recommended this song to me! I saw MØ in concert a couple years ago and had the time of my life. I've been a fan ever since. This song mixes techno with MØ's strong vocals and makes you feel powerful in every way possible. This is another song that I've been listening to on repeat over the past week or so, and I plan on seeing MØ again down here in Philly in January. A true 10/10 song that I highly recommend.

5. You're Somebody Else by Flora Cash

This song is one you're likely to hear on the radio if you listen to the radio enough. It has a pretty acoustic base and is great for reflecting and just spending time alone and relaxing. This is definitely one of my favorites at the moment. It's mellow but still kind of uplifting at the same time, which is hard to find in a song.

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.

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.
