My Top 5 Favorite Artists That You Absolutely Need To Go Listen To, Like Right Now

Music has always played a huge roll in my day-to-day life. Whether it's used as background noise or something to help me concentrate, I am constantly listening to something. Hearing new music is something that I always look forward to. The New Music Friday playlist on Spotify that updates every Friday can honestly help me get through the week sometimes. Finding new music on my own, though, is one of my favorite hobbies. On long car rides, I love to play one of my favorite current songs and just let the song's radio play so I can find new songs to love. If I had to pick my favorite song, I think "Drops of Jupiter" by Train would be my favorite of all time. Favorite current songs, on the other hand, are forever changing. Somehow, I always seem to go back to the same artists.

If you haven't listened to Chelsea Cutler, stop reading this and go listen to her right now. Seriously, she is amazing. Her voice is just as good live as it is listening to her through my AirPods. Chelsea's music is raw and authentic and something that I really can relate to. Keeping up with her music and social media gives me something to look forward to.

I think her authenticity is what keeps me so engaged in her art because it can be hard to find that with your favorite artist or role model sometimes. Also, she liked one of my DM's once, so that was pretty cool of her.

Taylor Swift

Since I heard "Teardrops on my Guitar" after getting my "heart broken" in the third grade, Taylor Swift has always been my go-to girl for any mood I am in throughout the day. Swift has a song for any mood you're in for any stage of your life. The new album, Lover, is by far my favorite Swift album yet. It has everything someone could ask for in an album. This is one of the few albums I can listen to from the first song,"I Forgot That You Existed", to the last song,"Daylight".

I miss country Taylor, but I am loving the new Taylor so much more. The fans that were with her from the very beginning have witnessed her in every stage of her life, and I think Swift is a better artist for being so vulnerable in her music.

Illenium is a new found love for me. I think the first song that I listening from them was "Crashing (feat. Bahari)". This song is the perfect tempo for any part of the day. Their new album, ASCEND, is a work of art. "In Your Arms" and "Takeaway" are two of my new favorites from Illenium.

Grace VanderWaal

Grace VanderWaal is incredibly talented and amazing, and she's only 15-years-old. Can you believe that? She was discovered on America's Got Talent when she was only 12-years-old. The uniqueness of the young singer's voice won America and me over. Her talent with the ukulele is fabulous. I knew that I would love her after hearing "Moonlight" on her first album, "Just The Beginning". Just within the past three years, she has released an EP, "Perfectly Imperfect," which consisted of five songs; and an album "Just The Beginning;" and released several recent singles.

Two of her new singles, "Ur So Beautiful" and "Waste My Time," are two of my favorite songs right now. If you haven't yet listened to this young pop star, then you definitely should.

Miley Cyrus

Through all the different seasons, Miley Cyrus has remained one of my favorite singers/songwriters since the Hannah Montana days. No matter what other people thought, I thought her voice was one of the most beautiful voices ever. It's hard not to love her classics "Party In The USA," "7 Things," and "When I Look at You." However, Bangerz is actually one of my favorite albums. She is another artist that sounds just as good live.

Although my heart was too broken when she and Liam split, I remained a fan of Miley's.

I Sat Down With An Endocrinologist To Ask All My Questions About Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

There are so many moving parts of hormonal health, so I went to an expert.

Anjanette Tan

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is an autoimmune disease that impacts approximately 1 in 10 women. Any woman who has PCOS can attest to the fact that no two cases are the same — there are so many aspects of hormonal health that can impact a woman's reproductive health! For many, PCOS is a trial and error condition, with many doctors' appointments depending on the stage of life the woman is in.

This week I sat down with Dr. Anjanette Tan to get the expert opinion on all my PCOS questions. Dr. Tan is a board-certified endocrinology who's worked in private practices since 2004. She currently works at the Diabetes and Thyroid Center of Fort Worth, one of the largest all-endocrine practices in the area, where she is the managing partner and head of clinical research.

- Since I can remember, I've always been a light sleeper, with the quietest sounds waking me up, and I regularly wake up with the sun.

- While talking to a gynecologist friend of mine, she mentioned the importance of using an eye mask for quality sleep, which regulates hormonal levels.

- I was serendipitously sent the Crane & Canopy Silk Sleep Mask almost right after that conversation and was honestly reluctant to try it after testing other sleep masks that felt uncomfortable and irritated my skin.

- This sleep mask was extremely comfortable, and for the first time in nearly a decade, I slept in far past when I usually do on the weekends and woke up feeling more refreshed than I can remember — I've worn it nearly every night since then.

The older I get, it seems that sleep becomes an increasingly important topic of conversation amongst my friends and me. Yes, of course we complain about how tired we always are, but the pattern seemed to be a lack of sleep on the weekdays followed by late nights and sleeping in on the weekends without any solution.

As college students, sometimes life can be overwhelming. Four tests in a week and you only passed one of them? I feel that. Days like that, you just need time for yourself. A time where you're nice to yourself and put your own self-care before anything else.

I'll never forget the day that someone told me these words: "Madison, I think you're a good friend to everyone but yourself." I stood there completely in awe of that statement. Before that day, I never really thought about being a friend to myself, and at the time, I didn't really know what it meant. Now, I realize that you can't fully be there for other people unless you're there for yourself, too. You can't show up for others until you're willing to show up for yourself.

Here are five things everyone should learn in order to be a better friend to themselves. These steps are hard, but they're so worth it.
