Taylor Swift’s New Song 'ME!' Is Actually Kinda Good And My Childhood Love For Her Music Is BACK
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FuXNumBwDOM

4.26. The day "ME!" by Taylor Swift was released. The day "Avengers: Endgame" came out. And, also the day my childhood love for Taylor's music was reborn.

Okay, that was a lie. To be honest, I've always been a fan of her music, even as her style has changed dramatically over the years. It doesn't mean she's a completely different person or anything; it's simply that she wants to make music that sounds different. So when she started giving hints for her 7th studio album, of course, I was eager to find out what it was going to sound like.

Why?? Because she's dead!media3.giphy.com

It was midnight of the 26th when I first watched the "ME!" music video. Let me just say, I was really confused. The song was catchy, but I had absolutely no idea what was happening. There were butterflies and rainbows and cats, and Brendon Urie was there too. I legitimately thought I was dreaming.

But after I've listened to it a couple of times, I've realized that this song actually encapsulates Taylor pretty well. All of her songs have at least one of the following: some sort of narrative, inspiration from her own life, or a super catchy tune. Most of them check all three boxes (notable examples include "All Too Well" and "We Are Never Getting Back Together"). It seems like "ME!" does too.

Promise that you'll never find another like ME!media0.giphy.com

I mean, sure, the song has been described as cringy. But it's not hurting anyone, so who cares? It's literally a song about self-love and confidence and people want to focus on the one line where she says "Spelling is fun!"? That's not even a rarity- she has so many songs with spoken words in them. Or they wanna say that the video is just Lisa Frank come to life. But to that I say, if she wants to be Justice figurehead, maybe we should just let her. The point is, it's not that deep.

Yes, it's 2019. Yes, Taylor Swift is coming back to dominate the pop charts again. Now that she really has no care in the world about her reputation, I wonder how that'll reflect in her new music. But let's be real, no matter your opinion on her, you're still gonna have her song stuck in your head for the next 3 years. Embrace it (and stream "ME!" on Spotify and Apple Music)!

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.

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
