Final season is upon us -- don't ask me how we got here because I've barely registered that summer is over. But, within the "it's grind season homie" attitudes, we all need some good bops to get us in the study mood. Below are some of my favorites!

1. "Woman Like Me" (feat. Nicki Minaj) by Little Mix 

2. "All I Am" by Jess Glynne 

3. "Head Above Water" by Avril Lavigne 

This new song by Avril Lavigne is truly such a good song. I've listened to it on repeat a few times myself and it's just a good one to remind yourself to keep your head up during this study szn.

Maybe seems a bit out of place but I sing this song at the top of my lungs in my car and it is one of the greatest love songs of our generation.

Can anyone even argue that this song is brilliance?

College As Told By Junie B. Jones

A tribute to the beloved author Barbara Parks.

The Junie B. Jones series was a big part of my childhood. They were the first chapter books I ever read. On car trips, my mother would entertain my sister and me by purchasing a new Junie B. Jones book and reading it to us. My favorite part about the books then, and still, are how funny they are. Junie B. takes things very literally, and her (mis)adventures are hilarious. A lot of children's authors tend to write for children and parents in their books to keep the attention of both parties. Barbara Park, the author of the Junie B. Jones series, did just that. This is why many things Junie B. said in Kindergarten could be applied to her experiences in college, as shown here.

When Junie B. introduces herself hundreds of times during orientation week:

“My name is Junie B. Jones. The B stands for Beatrice. Except I don't like Beatrice. I just like B and that's all." (Junie B. Jones and the Stupid Smelly Bus, p. 1)

When she goes to her first college career fair:

"Yeah, only guess what? I never even heard of that dumb word careers before. And so I won't know what the heck we're talking about." (Junie B. Jones and her Big Fat Mouth, p. 2)

When she thinks people in class are gossiping about her:

“They whispered to each other for a real long time. Also, they kept looking at me. And they wouldn't even stop." (Junie B., First Grader Boss of Lunch, p. 66)

When someone asks her about the library:

“It's where the books are. And guess what? Books are my very favorite things in the whole world!" (Junie B. Jones and the Stupid Smelly Bus, p. 27)

When she doesn't know what she's eating at the caf:

“I peeked inside the bread. I stared and stared for a real long time. 'Cause I didn't actually recognize the meat, that's why. Finally, I ate it anyway. It was tasty...whatever it was." (Junie B., First Grader Boss of Lunch, p. 66)

When she gets bored during class:

“I drew a sausage patty on my arm. Only that wasn't even an assignment." (Junie B. Jones Loves Handsome Warren, p. 18)

When she considers dropping out:

“Maybe someday I will just be the Boss of Cookies instead!" (Junie B., First Grader Boss of Lunch, p. 76)

When her friends invite her to the lake for Labor Day:

“GOOD NEWS! I CAN COME TO THE LAKE WITH YOU, I BELIEVE!" (Junie B. Jones Smells Something Fishy, p. 17)

When her professor never enters grades on time:

“I rolled my eyes way up to the sky." (Junie B., First Grader Boss of Lunch, p. 38)

When her friends won't stop poking her on Facebook:


“Do not poke me one more time, and I mean it." (Junie B. Jones Smells Something Fishy, p. 7)

When she finds out she got a bad test grade:

“Then my eyes got a little bit wet. I wasn't crying, though." (Junie B. Jones and the Stupid Smelly Bus, p. 17)

When she isn't allowed to have a pet on campus but really wants one:

“FISH STICK! I NAMED HIM FISH STICK BECAUSE HE'S A FISH STICK, OF COURSE!" (Junie B. Jones Smells Something Fishy, p. 59)

When she has to walk across campus in the dark:

“There's no such thing as monsters. There's no such thing as monsters." (Junie B. Jones Has a Monster Under Her Bed, p. 12)

When her boyfriend breaks her heart:

“I am a bachelorette. A bachelorette is when your boyfriend named Ricardo dumps you at recess. Only I wasn't actually expecting that terrible trouble." (Junie B. Jones Is (almost) a Flower Girl, p. 1)

When she paints her first canvas:


"And painting is the funnest thing I love!" (Junie B. Jones and her Big Fat Mouth, p. 61)

When her sorority takes stacked pictures:

“The biggie kids stand in the back. And the shortie kids stand in the front. I am a shortie kid. Only that is nothing to be ashamed of." (Junie B. Jones Has a Monster Under Her Bed, p. 7)

When she's had enough of the caf's food:

“Want to bake a lemon pie? A lemon pie would be fun, don't you think?" (Junie B. Jones Has a Monster Under Her Bed p. 34)

When she forgets about an exam:

“Speechless is when your mouth can't speech." (Junie B. Jones Loves Handsome Warren, p. 54)

When she finds out she has enough credits to graduate:

“A DIPLOMA! A DIPLOMA! I WILL LOVE A DIPLOMA!" (Junie B. Jones is a Graduation Girl p. 6)

When she gets home from college:

"IT'S ME! IT'S JUNIE B. JONES! I'M HOME FROM MY SCHOOL!" (Junie B. Jones and some Sneaky Peaky Spying p. 20)

7 Bee Gees Songs That Should Be On EVERY Playlist

Because we're all "Stayin Alive."

The Bee Gees were one of the most popular artists of the 20th century and one of the best-selling artists of all time, but are remembered almost exclusively for "Stayin Alive" today. Although "Stayin Alive" is without a doubt a masterpiece, the Bee Gees also produced many other magnum opuses throughout their careers. In fact, they have the perfect song for every occasion.

1. "Stayin' Alive"


This is what almost everyone remembers the Bee Gees for today, and it's no wonder why. It's definitely a disco song, but it's as uplifting and spiritual as a hymn. It perfectly sums up life in four and a half minutes-it's difficult, stressful and full of challenges, but through it all, you're stayin' alive. The chorus, especially the repetition of "Stayin Alive," gives you renewed and determination even in the hardest of times. The rest of the lyrics only reinforce the overarching theme of perseverance and give you more energy. No wonder it's the go-to CPR song. Whenever you're tired or stressed out, just play this song and let it reinvigorate and rejuvenate you.

2. "How Deep Is Your Love"


The most well-composed love song of all time executed to perfection. In stark contrast to modern pop music, this song dives into and explores the true meaning of love. In addition, it beautifully articulates love's ability to overcome anything and everything from pouring rain to fools. In a world increasingly obsessed with bodily glamour and pornography, it reminds listeners how pure, beautiful and powerful true, platonic love is. Listen to this with someone special in a moving vehicle or on a warm summer night and something magical happens.

3. "Night Fever"


Forty years later, it's still as catchy as ever. The lyrics and the Gibb Brothers' irreplaceable harmony are already enchanting, but the sound effects are second-to-none. It's a must-have for any party playlist and the perfect complement to a nighttime stroll through Times Square or a drive down Las Vegas Boulevard.

4. "Tragedy"


Because sometimes life is a tragedy. Like "Stayin Alive," this song is a must-have for challenging and stressful times. The truthfulness of the lyrics speaks to your soul, while the energy of the falsettos and heavy metal guitar solo energize and motivate you. It's a rock song that's also uplifting.

5. "Massachusetts"

A bittersweet, Beatles-esque ballad about homesickness, especially if you are from Massachusetts. If you're not from Massachusetts, just replace "Massachusetts" with a four-syllable name or nickname of your hometown and the song still works perfectly. It's only two minutes long, but in that time it touches your heart and beautifully articulates the warmth and comfort of Massachusetts (or wherever your home is). There really is no place like home.

6. "To Love Somebody"


Another Beatles-esque classic. It's short, simple and sweet, making it the perfect song for Valentine's day or a private moment with your special someone. Since it's so easy to learn, you can also sing it to anyone or anything that has significance to you, such as a family member or relative, your car, a prized possession, etc.

7. "Immortality" (featuring Celine Dion)


When you combine two of the best-selling artists of all time, you are almost guaranteed a masterpiece, and Immortality is exactly that. Every detail of this song is carefully crafted from the meticulous arrangement of voices to the emotion-packed lyrics. It's a mixture of emotions-hope, nostalgia, love, sadness, and determination all in one. This makes it extremely versatile-it is a fantastic love song and a fitting tribute to someone or something special. It's every bit as heart-wrenching as "My Heart Will Go On." In fact, it should have been used in "Titanic."

Although perhaps not as famous as the Beatles or Michael Jackson, the Bee Gees stand out with the variety of music they could compose. They could write songs that reflect every emotion and suit every mood. In fact, they are quite possibly the most versatile songwriters of all time.
