Emotional Breakdown of Adele's New Album, "25"

Emotional Breakdown of Adele's New Album, "25"

The much anticipated Adele album "25" came out on Friday, Nov. 20, and Adele did not disappoint. From the upbeat guitar of "Send My Love" to the haunting strings and piano of "Love in the Dark," Adele has delivered. I'm sure I was not the only one who lay in the dark in bed on Friday night and listened to the entire album. As you can expect, it was a whirlwind of emotions. Here's a breakdown of all of the songs, so grab a pint of Blue Bell (or a glass of wine) and settle in.

"Hello" is a song you should listen to when you're having one of those nights when you are reminiscing on a past relationship and wondering what might have been. Adele has perfectly captured what it feels like to watch someone's life from afar after you have been through a break-up.

"Send My Love (To Your New Lover)" is that moment everyone has when you finally realize you are over your ex. It is a liberating and redemptive feeling. This song is about feeling free from the trials and tribulations of heartache.

"I Miss You" is when you and your significant other are experiencing a hard time, but you know that you want to get through it. It is knowing that this will not end your relationship and that you will get through it.

"When We Were Young" creates a strong sense of nostalgia. This is the kind of song that makes you long for the time when you were running wild and were crazy in love. It's recognizing that this genuine and authentic love existed and was real. It also recognizes that you are not the same person you were when you had that love, but it's beautiful to remember how it felt.

"Remedy" is a ballad for all the best friends out there. This is about having someone to turn to when everything goes wrong and it doesn't feel like it's going to get better. It's about being there for someone in their time of need, no matter what the situation might be.

"Water Under The Bridge" is about knowing that you are not right for someone and that the end is unavoidable. You want to be with the person so badly, but something just isn't right.

"River Lea" is about that one person you are still stuck on. It's about knowing that you can't go back to them. It's also about not being ready to pursue anyone else but knowing that you have to have this period of sadness so you will be able to move on.

"Love In the Dark" is when you have been struggling to make a relationship work when you know it never will. It is making the decision to get off the merry go 'round and be brave enough to end the relationship. It is acknowledging that that person means so much to you, but you have to move on for your own sake and theirs.

"Million Years Ago" is when you feel like your life is flashing by and you don't know how to stop it. It is when you are having a rough patch in your life where you aren't quite sure what you're doing or where you're going and you feel utterly lost.

"All I Ask" is another song about knowing the relationship is going to end and not knowing how your life is going to work without him in it. It is about not knowing how to love again after the relationship is over.

"Sweetest Devotion" is about the moment where you find the love of your life. It is when you find the person that makes you realize why it didn't work with anyone else.

There is your complete breakdown of all of the songs, and all I can say is well done, Adele.

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.

There have been many lessons learned.

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.

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.
