The Power Of A Positive Song

Everyone has a hard time in life sometimes. There is no one that doesn’t have a bad day, week or month occasionally. Sometimes it’s caused by internal factors and sometimes external factors. Sometimes it’s a mixture of both. No matter the cause, the stress of life can build and build until it becomes too much and that can create problems whether mentally, emotionally or physically. It can really put you in a funk that can be hard to escape.

My favorite way to cope with the hard times in life and escape the funk is through music. A few good, uplifting songs can really help your mood, especially if you sing them at the top of your lungs in the car or have a solo dance party. My playlist, although not very long, helps pull me out of my funk. Hopefully there will be a song or two on it that can help you too.

1. "One Step At A Time" by Jordin Sparks

2. "Happy" by Pharrell Williams

3. "Almost There" by Anika Noni Rose (From Disney’s "Princess and the Frog")

4. "Brave" by Sara Bareilles

5. "Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You)" by Kelly Clarkson

6. "Roar" by Katy Perry

7. "I Gotta Feeling" by The Black Eyed Peas

8. "Same Love" by Macklemore (Feat. Mary Lambert)

9. "Upside Down" by Jack Johnson

10. "The Climb" by Miley Cyrus

11. "Hall Of Fame" by The Script (Feat. Will.I.Am)

12. "F**kin’ Perfect" by P!nk

13. "Firework" by Katy Perry

14. "Just Keep Breathing" by We The Kings

Music is a powerful resource we have to express our emotions. It gives us something to connect to and let it all out. I truly believe music can raise our spirits and help us think clearer. The right song at the right time can be wonderful for getting through the hard times.

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.
