The "I'm A Strong, Independent Woman" Playlist

13 Songs Every Independent Woman Knows

The "I'm A Strong, Independent Woman" Playlist

First off, I am not a man hater. I am in a loving, wonderful relationship and I wouldn't change a thing about it. However, I am also a college educated woman with ambitions and goals. These two do not need to be mutually exclusive. I am all for dropping the mic one moment on issues revolving around women's rights, and slow dancing with lots of PDA the other moment. We are multi-faceted individuals. We have no need for boxes because not only do we think outside the box but we will break down the walls and keep running. So for all my ladies who wear their independence loud and proud, this playlist is for you.

1. Independent Women Part 1 by Destiny's Child

If you’re an independent woman, throw your hands up at me!

2. Fighter by Christina Aguilera

We all know we wouldn't be as strong as we are now if we didn't have those people and situations that put us through a world of hurt because now we are wiser and better.

3. Jar of Hearts by Christina Perri

The chorus is the anthem of every woman who has had their heart broken only to come out stronger in the end.

4. Sit Still, Look Pretty by Daya

Because society shouldn’t dictate what you do with yourself, only you can do that.

5. Confident by Demi Lovato

This song makes me happy on so many levels.

6. Castle by Halsey (*Language Warning*)

Subtle but effective.

7. I Love It by Icona Pop

Most of us have probably met someone at some point who seemed to be from a different planet. If you are lucky, sometimes you can make it gel. Other times, you are two sails passing in the wind. But either way, love yourself and you will learn to move on.

8. Hell No by Ingrid Michaelson

Not sure about the video, but the lyrics are on point.

9. Roar by Katy Perry

Because I personally believe we could all use a little more Katy Perry in our lives. But, this is also just a great song.

10. NO by Meghan Trainor

Nah to the ah to the no no no.

11. Blow Me (One Last Kiss) by P!nk

Throwin' it back with the original badass, independent lady, P!nk.

12. Same Old Love by Selena Gomez

Because her sweet, cool, calm way of saying good bye has been all of us at some point.

13. Elastic Heart by Sia

There is definitely a lot of deep meaning behind this music video that I am not going to get in too, but the lyrics are strong and an excellent reminder of the elasticity of the human heart.

If you have been following me for a long time, then you know I write about two main things: relateable articles and communication media based articles. Now, it is time for me to combine the two. For those of you that don't know, I am a radio DJ at IUP, and I DJ for a show called BPM (Beats Per Minute). It is an EDM, or electronic dance music, based show and I absolutely love it.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

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!"
