My Top 11 Songs of 2018

My Top 11 Songs of 2018

Because I couldn't pick just 1.


If you know me, you know all I do is listen to music, shazam songs, and constantly ask people for song requests. So I thought I'd take the other side and give other's my favorite songs.
Here are my top 10 songs of 2018.

Note: Not all of these songs were released in 2018.

11. Sad still by QuinnXCII

I have now seen Quinn in concert 3 times this year, and each time he gets better and better. I even Instagram dm-ed him telling him how amazing his last concert was, and that I love his newest song, which happened to be Sad Still. Although this is not my favorite of Quinn's songs, the song discusses mental health and how even though someone may be taking medication for it, all their problems don't just disappear. It has an amazing message and also—is a bop.

10. I Lived by One Republic

As a member of Terp Thon Planning Team we often watch videos about the Miracle Children at Children's National to keep us in high spirits throughout the entire year. I Lived, is one of the songs that is often played in these videos, and makes me cry almost every single time. This song is what has kept me connected to Terp Thon and reminds me why we raise money.

9. Stay together by Noah Cyrus

Who would have thought one of my favorite songs would be sung by Miley Cyrus' little sister Noah, but here we are. Stay Together is slow, but is one of my favorite ones to belt out in the car.

8. The Great Escape by Boys Like Girls

This was the song at the bid day for my sorority that went directly with our theme. Now, you're probably rolling your eyes because. It's related to Greek life, but let me tell you, this song is what began a journey of friendships that will last forever and memories I won't forget.

7. Let It Be by The Beatles

A classic. Throughout my entire life music has always been something my Dad and I have shared, and this song has been one of them.

6. Superficial by Lawrence

One of the more relatable songs on this list: people being Superficial. Not only realistic, but also, a bop. I saw Lawrence perform this song in concert in a small venue in DC, and at one point in the song the band stopped playing and the crowd screamed the lyrics. From that moment on I listened to it all the time.

5. better off by Jeremy Zucker feat. Chelsea Cutler

This is one of those songs I listen to when I'm in the mood to be in deep thought. It gets your feels going and has amazing vocals on top of that.

4. High Hopes by Panic! At The Disco

PATD is a boy band I've loved since my freshman year of high school, and since I loved all their old music I was always nervous to listen to their new music, and I am so happy I did. High Hopes is a confidence booster kind of song you want to listen to over and over again.

3. My Type by The Chainsmokers

I will be the first to say that many of The Chainsmokers songs sound exactly the same, but there's something about My Type which makes is special. At the end of the bridge, there is a harmony that makes you feel happy and free.

2. Another Sad Love Song by Khalid

At Governers Ball in NYC this year, Khalid performed his heart out, and in the middle of this song the clouds parted and the rain stopped. Khalid stopped, closed his eyes, and put his arms out ecstatic that this was happening. The entire crowd cheered, and it was one of the most surreal feelings in the entire world.

1. This is America by Childish Gambino

When this song first came out it was right around finals in May, and I swear, it kept me up at night. Instead of studying for my finals, all I did was watch the music video for this song. While the song itself is brilliant, the music video is filled with symbolism and social commentary on this time in the USA and I absolutely loved, and still do love, every second of Gambino's glory.

10 Photos You Have On Your Camera Roll Of Your S.O. When You've Been Dating For More Than A Year

A wide range from "Aw" to "WTF?"


My boyfriend and I just hit the year and a half mark of dating, even though it seems like we've been together forever. Over the months, we've taken many pictures together... from football games, to his track meets, to holidays. Although we may have a lot of pictures together, I definitely have a lot of candids of him in my camera roll. If you've been dating your partner for as long as I have or longer, then you'll probably notice you have these same pictures in your photos as well.

1. The awkward first photos together

We laugh at these now, especially this one. Why am I so pale compared to him? It was July! And also, we noticed not to long ago that I was sweating under my arms and his underarms were sweating on me... what a great first time meeting!

2. The ones for VSCO

Every girl who has a significant other posts them onto their VSCO. VSCO is like Instagram, but more has more aesthetically pleasing pictures and there are no "likes." The pictures that include my boyfriend on my VSCO ranges from him holding a bunny to him holding my hand while we went ice skating.

3. Them sleeping

I have so many pictures of my boyfriend sleeping (I promise it's not as weird as it sounds), I just think he's so cute when he's fast asleep while cuddling with me.

4. The embarrassing ones they want no one to see

He's going to kill me when he sees this... but we all have those embarrassing Snapchat pictures that we start to send each other because we've gotten more comfortable with one another.

5. The ones for Facebook

The good looking pictures so you can keep yours and his family updated on how you two are doing. I took my boyfriend to a baby bird meet and greet since he loves birds and has one for a pet. I posted this cute picture of him and his new friends on Facebook so my family can see our adventures together.

6. Old pictures

One of the best parts of dating someone is finally seeing their old pictures. Although, sometimes they may make you cringe... like the one I posted above of my boyfriend after prom in his sophomore year of high school.

7. Their accomplishments

My boyfriend pole vaults for his college and he's really good at it. He just went to division III nationals in March because he qualified! I'm always at his meets so I make sure to get him on video in case he or anyone wants to see. I always try to snag a picture with him too because I'm always so proud.

8. The straight up ugly ones

He sure knows how to make me laugh. And I know he's going to be mad at me for this one too but I think it's a talent that he can do that with his stomach! Sorry, Adam, I promise I still think you look good when you send me these snaps for the most part.

9. But you have the hot ones too

He may be funny and sweet, but he is pretty good looking too. I know us girls keep some attractive pictures of our S.O.'s so we can remind ourselves of what a great looking partner we have.

10. FaceTime screenshots

If you and your lover go to different colleges like my boyfriend and I do, then FaceTiming happens a lot. Sometimes I get some great screenshots, like the one above, to make fun of him later.

You Know You're From Trumbull, CT When...

The best memories are made in this boring, little, Connecticut town.


1. The majority of places you will consider to eat at are in Fairfield or Westport... Colony, Shake Shack, Country Cow, Playa Bowls, BarTaco

2. But if you find yourself too lazy to get on 95 for food, Panchero's is the go-to... never Chipotle. If it is past midnight, the choice always comes down to the McDonalds in Monroe, where you are almost guaranteed to see a group of people you know, or Merritt Canteen.

3. Once you got your license, your Friday night plans consisted of picking up friends, driving up and down Main Street, and, somehow, always finding yourself at the THS parking lot seeing who's car is there because there is nothing better to do.

4. In the Fall, you couldn't wait for Friday so that after school you and half of your grade could walk to Plasko's Farm for ice cream and apple cider donuts... and hope you could get them before the owners would yell at you to leave. (This one only applies to Hillcrest Middle School kids, AKA the inferior middle school in town).

5. You couldn't wait to be a senior so you could officially lead the BLACK HOLE at football games... if you were even willing to go in the cold.

6. You looked forward to the annual Senior Scav, the last week of summer before your senior year where a list of tasks is passed down by the recently graduated class... the official kickoff to senior year.

7. You pass by Country Club Rd. and get flashbacks from the worst Cross Country practices ever. Driving up Daniels Farm Rd. in the Fall and Spring, you are conditioned to yell "hi" out the window to your friends at practice.

8. You knew someone who worked at Gene's gas station... and found yourself spending more time there on the weekends than you would like to admit.

9. You are convinced Melon-heads are real after frequenting Velvet St. to see the abandoned insane asylum with your friends, IF you didn't want to drive all the way up to Fairfield Hills in Newtown.

10. You have had/have been to at least one middle school birthday party at the Trumbull Marriott.

11. You know that the 25mph speed limit on Whitney Ave. is way too slow... and can't help but hit a little air going down the huge hill at the top.

12. The guy at Towne likely knows your name.

13. You never find yourself turning right out of THS... that side of town is irrelevant for those who do not live there.

14. You know to avoid the Merrit Parkway from 4:00-7:00pm at all costs.

15. You know more than you would like to about people you aren't even friends with... in a town so small, things get around very quick.

16. Going shopping really means going to Target, or any store in the mall, for the millionth time that week.

17. The marching band was the best in the state and you would see them practicing, literally, every time you drove by THS.

19. Depending on the side of town you lived, you spent a lot of time at Five Pennies Park or Indian Ledge Park.

20. You would say you couldn't wait to leave, but when you got to college, you find yourself excited to come back to your hometown so you can reminisce on old traditions and make new memories.
