Yes, Spotify Really Is Better Than Apple Music

I know a lot of people are about to send me angry DM's.

Yes, Spotify Really Is Better Than Apple Music

Every Week You Get a Personally Customized Playlist

You get some familiar artists, but for the most part, the Discover Weekly playlist is to expose you to similar artists to those that you already listen to. Within the playlist, you can either save the song to your library or tell Spotify to not play that song again or even the artist.

As a longtime Spotify devotee, I'm always shocked people don't know about one of its best features — here's how to use it

One of the most frustrating things for me with Apple Music is how clustered the app is. I have been using Spotify for over 6 years at this point, and while that heavily impacts my opinion, there is a convenient menu and then what you've been recently listening to.

Well Curated Playlists

From every genre, to mood, to the chart toppers, Spotify has it all. They are all organized in a streamlined fashion as well.

Spotify Connect

This feature is one of my favorites. Say you were to be playing music off your laptop and you are scrolling through Twitter across the room and don't want to get up to change the song. A typical problem, right? Well, all you would have to do is open the Spotify app on your phone and now your phone is a remote.

Made For You Tab

In addition to the Discover Weekly playlist, there is a folder of music in "Your Library" that is music made just to your taste. There are daily playlists that are refreshed based off of your customizations. As of right now, I have 6 that cover my spread of music listening quite well. However, I would like to point out they aren't going to be perfect right off the bat because the algorithm has to read your listening trends. Give it some time!

Not only can you upload the music you already own and play it through the app (I'm looking at you Tool), but you can also upload your own photos to be your playlists cover. The default for any playlist is to use the four different album covers that appear in the playlist, but once you upload your own photo, it makes it that much more intimate.

How I Celebrate Valentine's Day

Every person, every couple celebrates Valentines in different ways, but there are a few things to keep in mind.

How I Celebrate Valentine's Day

Ah, Valentines Day, a day of excitement for some and heart break for many. There are three kinds of people on Valentine's Day: the ones who make it a big deal, a little deal, and those who are single, but Valentine's Day can be fun for anyone if you have the right spirit in mind.

1. You don't have to feel guilty about flirting with customers for tips (or just for shits and giggles).

2. You can be obnoxiously flirtatious with anyone you want. You are free to be that girl that flirts with everybody and makes 'em all smile (it's especially fun when the guy is as cute as Collin Jost). No shame.

3. Making random men nervous with your superior beauty and intense eye contact just for the hell of it is really amusing and empowering.

4. No one gives two poops if ya legs are hairy (your man shouldn't either but *Kermit the Frog meme* That's none of my business)

Black History Month? Try Black History Year

What does Black History Month mean to you?


African Americans have done so much and will forever be remembered for their accomplishments. In my opinion, there is no such thing as Black History Month. All year, we should celebrate the amazing poetry, music, inventions, and accomplishments that has surfaced over the last 100 years. Let's take a look...
