Taylor Swift’s New Song 'ME!' Is Actually Kinda Good And My Childhood Love For Her Music Is BACK

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)!

No Sex And Upstate New York

A modern-day reincarnation of Carrie Bradshaw's classic column


Around the age of 12, when I was deciding whether or not to be gay, Satan appeared on my left shoulder. “Ramsssey,” he said with that telltale lisp. “Come over to our side. We have crazy partiessss.” He made a strong case, bouncing up and down on my shoulder with six-pack abs and form-fitting Calvin Kleins. An angel popped up on the other shoulder and was going to warn me about something, but Satan interrupted- “Shut up, you crusty-ass bitch!’ The angel was pretty crusty. She disappeared, and from that moment forward I was gay.

Senior Year Is Here And I Am So Not Ready For It

I was you not that long ago. I was once an eager freshman, a searching sophomore, and a know-it-all junior. Now? Now I am a risk taker. Not the type that gets you in trouble with your parents, but the type that changes your future. Senior year is exciting. A lot of awesome things come along with being the top-dog of the school, but you, right now, are building the foundation for the next 4 years that you will spend in high school. I know you've heard it all. "Get involved", "You'll regret not going to prom", "You're going to miss this". As redundant as these seem, they're true. Although I am just at the beginning of my senior year, I am realizing how many lasts I am encountering.

Why Driving Drives Me Crazy

the highways are home


With Halloween quickly approaching, I have been talking to coworkers about what scares us. There are always the obvious things like clowns, spiders, heights, etc. But me? There are a number things I don't like: trusting strangers, being yelled at, being in life or death situations, parallel parking. All of these are included when you get behind the wheel of a car.
