Empowering Taylor Swift Lyrics to Lift Your Spirits

Taylor Swift lyrics

Most people assume that the only thing Taylor Swift sings about are her exes and her relationships. But Swift's reputation precedes her when it comes to songwriting; she is a talented songwriter and has written some inspiring lyrics that have helped me when I am feeling down.

"Someday I'll be living in a big old city, and all you're ever gonna be is mean."

"Mean" was written to all of the bullies out there, asking them the simple question: "Why you gotta be so mean?" Whenever someone out there is bringing you down, just remember these lyrics and how they're going to be nothing more than what they already are. Mean.

"Lost your balance on a tightrope, oh it's never too late to get it back."

"Innocent" is a song that tells you that you are more than your mistakes. These lyrics will help you remember that you can always recover and grow from past errors.

"Someday you won't remember this pain you thought would last forever and ever; and there you'll stand, ten feet tall.  I will say, I knew it all along."

"Sweeter than Fiction" is a song about struggling to get to where you want to be. Everyone goes through rough patches when trying to get to their goal, and sometimes these rough patches make us want to quit. Taylor is there to remind us that although you're suffering now, if you keep working at it, you will eventually find success.

"Everything will be alright if we just keep dancing like we're 22."

"22" is the staple girls night out song. It's a song about forgetting your worries and just having a good time. So when you're stressed out about what's going on in your life, just dance it out because everything is going to be okay.

"It's a new soundtrack I could dance to this beat forevermore, the lights are so bright but they never blind me."

Whenever I listen to "Welcome to New York" it makes me want to learn a million new things at once. If you're ever nervous about trying something new, these lyrics will give you the confidence to take it on!

"Cause baby I could build a castle, out of all the bricks they threw at me."

Taylor has always had a lot of hate thrown her way, but she never fails to rise above it all. These lyrics, from the song "New Romantics," help remind you to never let someone's hate bring you down, and you can always rise above it.

"Hold on to the memories they will hold on to you."

As we grow up, we move on from things, no matter how much we want to stick with them. These lyrics remind you that although moving on is hard, you will always have the memories to hold close with you.

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.
