Spotify Is Better Than Apple Music. There I Said It

Yes, Spotify Really Is Better Than Apple Music

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


**some features are exclusive to Spotify Premium (it's worth it) or will take some dedicated time**

1. The Apple Tax

2. 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.

3. The Layout on Mobile and Desktop is User Friendly

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.

4. 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.

5. 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.

6. 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!

7. Personalization

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.

8. Free Hulu and Showtime with a Student Email

9 Reasons You're Still In Love With Tim Riggins In 2019

Clear eyes. Full hearts.

If you're a Friday Night Lights fan, you know very well who Tim Riggins is. And if you've never seen the show, he's basically just the bad boy football star and sensitive hottie of your dreams, all wrapped into one heart-throbbing package. If you haven't already fallen under the Tim Riggins spell, you're about to...

1. He's the star running back of the Dillon Panthers.

Basically every girl who has walked this earth has fantasized about having that cliche football relationship. No shame. #33 on the field, #1 in my heart.

2. He's actually really sensitive.

Tim Riggins may seem hard and dysfunctional on the outside, but he's really just a big softie. He's no JD McCoy, who grew up lavishly and extremely fortunate; Tim had a rough upbringing. He and his brother, Billy, had to work hard all by themselves just to stay above water, which is most likely what keeps him so grounded and humbled.

3. He loves kids.

Tim didn't even think twice about taking his neighbor under his wing when he moved in next door. And for some reason, there's just somethin' about cute boys holding babies that makes us girls swoon.

4. He's genuine and honest.

Sure, maybe he took advantage of his football-star status and slept with most of the rally girls, but once he fell in love with Lyla we saw his compassionate side. (You probably envied Lyla and maybe even hated her for a while because of it...I know I did.)

5. He knows how to have a good time.

It's 5 o'clock somewhere.

6. He's a family man.

Tim took the blame for his brother's crime and went to prison for it...if that's not loyalty then I don't know what is.

7. He's affectionate.

If you either hate Lyla or you want to be Lyla or a combination of the both, you are not alone.

8. He's protective.

Probably the only time you've ever wanted to be in a tornado was when you watched the episode where he shielded Julie from flying debris.

9. He's beautiful.

You're welcome for blessing you with this GIF.

May you all find your own Tim Riggins. Amen.

5 Healthy Tips That Are Easy To Incorporate Into Your Everyday Routine

These are simple, realistic, and easy to apply to your life health tips.


Health? Don't know her but I've been trying to.

We're all out here trying to live a better life and sometimes that means making some changes in our lifestyles. Although we can't all spend 24/7 in the gym and sustain a vegan diet, we can take small steps to be healthier.

Here are 5 easy to incorporate tips that can help you start that journey.

1. Stretch in the morning

Odds are you probably spend most of the day sitting down, whether it be in lecture, in your car, or on your couch.

Sometimes you have to give your body a little more mobility. A simple 5 minute stretch in the morning right as you get out of bed might make you feel a little more ready to take on the day.

2. Drink a lot of water

I always forget to drink water but it is so important!

It helps your metabolism and your skin and your overall health. So set a goal for yourself to drink the recommended 8 - eight ounce - glasses. Getting a cute reusable cup might help motivate you.

3. Go on a walk after dinner

Ok I don't know about you but sometimes I eat a little bit too much. This can sometimes lead to me feeling tired and drowsy after, aka a food coma.

But I got the solution—go on a walk. It'll help you feel less tired and your food to be digested quicker.

4. Make yourself a green smoothie everyday

Seriously, theres so many healthy smoothie recipes out there and they'll help you get your daily fruit and veggie intake so quickly. It literally takes 5 minutes and you can make it at any time during the day.

5. Get more sleep

Even when life gets busy you shouldn't sacrifice your sleeping time. Set a realistic goal of getting at least an extra hour of sleep and notice the difference you see in your overall health.
