10 Taylor Swift Verses to Help Your College Journey

Tune into Taylor, she knows exactly how we feel.

Taylor Swift album

Most of us can relate to Taylor Swift's music. She talks about lost love and heartbreak, but did you know that she even writes about the lives of stressful college students? Me neither! These 11 song lyrics show how her songs can relate to those moments when you just want to rip your hair out. Take a look:

1. Song: "22," Album: "Red"

"We're happy, free, confused and lonely at the same time. It's miserable and magical, oh yeah...."

What she really means:

"College, I'm free!"

"So this is what independence feels like."

"Wait, Mom, how do I do laundry?"

"What do you mean I can't wash whites and colors together?"

"Come on, I just ruined my favorite shirt!"

2. Song: "All Too Well," Album: "Red"

"And I know it's long gone, and that magic's not here no more, and I might be okay, but I'm not fine at all...."

What she really means:

"I swear I studied it all last night."

"Why can't I remember it?"

"I'm going to fail, this is not OK."

3. Song: "Blank Space," Album: "1989"

"So it's gonna be forever or it's gonna go down in flames. You can tell me when it's over if the high was worth the pain."

What she really means:

"This is it. This test is going to make or break my GPA."

"Yep, I failed."

"I'm going to get kicked out of the program."

"Why did I pick this major again?"

"Why didn't I choose an easier major?"

4. Song: "Bad Blood," Album: "1989"

"Now we got problems, and I don't think we can solve them."

What she really means:

"But seriously, how do I do this math problem?"

5. Song: "Crazier," Album: "Hannah Montana: The Soundtrack"

"You spin me around, you make me crazier."

What she really means:

"I swear, I was normal until I came to college."

6. Song: "Everything Has Changed," Album: "Red"

"All I knew this morning when I woke up, is I know something now, know something now I didn't before."

What she really means:

"Wow, that all-night cramming session really did pay off."

7. Song: "I Almost Do," Album: "Red"

"I bet this time of night you're still up. I bet you're tired from a long hard week."

What she really means:

"Yep, I'm still up."

"Still studying."

"Is it Friday yet?"

"Can Friday come faster?"

8. Song: "I Know Places," Album: "1989"

"I can hear them whisper as we pass by. It's a bad sign, bad sign."

What she really means:

"What did they say?"

"Was the test hard?"

"Why is no one giving me any information?"

9. Song: "I Wish You Would," Album: "1989"

"It's 2 a.m. in my room. Headlights pass the window pane, I think of you. We're a crooked love in a straight line down. Makes you wanna run and hide, then it makes you turn right back around."

What she really means:

"What if I just moved to Alaska?"

"I bet I wouldn't have to take this exam."

"Yeah, but I'm not paying fifty thousand dollars a year for nothing."

"OK, I guess I'll finish studying."

10. Song: "Lucky Ones," Album: "Red"

"You know that we'll never leave if we don't get out now, now, now."

What she really means:

"Seriously, though, if I leave now I don't have to worry or study anymore."

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.
