Traveling To Last Fall In My Spotify Saved Songs

The songs that remind me most of last fall.


One of my favorite things about music is an individual song's ability to take you back to a specific time in your life. All those old memories flood right back in and it's all thanks to that one song. There are several songs that take me back to last fall, my freshman year of college at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. I am a recent transfer student to Villanova University (which I love very much) but these are the songs that I associate most with my freshman fall. When I think last fall, I think meeting new people, living in a tower dorm on the largest campus I have ever been to. I think looking out my dorm window around 7:00pm on that brisk September night and seeing the sky painted with oranges, purples and reds while that Amherst sun melted over the mountains. I think leaves and apple picking, meeting tons of new people and walking 25 minutes to class. I think fun. All of these feelings and memories can be relived at the play of a few certain songs.

Here they are:

Skywalker, by Miguel, Travis Scott

...Ready For It? by Taylor Swift

She had just released this as a single and I was OBSESSED with it, listening to it on repeat.

Guidance by Travis Scott

Frat Rules by A$AP Mob, A$AP Rocky, Playboi Carti, Big Sean

My friends and I were going to go to an A$AP concert so I began listening to all their music and this was one that stuck with me… one of my FAVS.

Shockandawe by Miguel

Say It To My Face by Maty Noyes

Catch Me by Flux Pavillion

Classic me was at a frat one night (Pike) and this song came on and I liked it so much that I had to go up to the DJ and ask what it was called while it was playing.

A Different Way by DJ Snake, Lauv

This song reminds me of one of the first parties I went to at an off-campus house at UMass.

Love$ick by Mura Masa, A$AP Rocky

ILL NANA by DRAM, Trippie Redd

I'm going to be completely honest here and tell you that when I say I listened to this song and Skrt Skrt by Tory Lanez back and forth all the way from UMass to University of Rhode Island and then back again, I am not kidding.

Soundcloud – La Lechuga // Hotty Toddy (Alex Bamford x Civalized) (Cameron Bear Mixtape)

I credit this find to one of my good guy friends from school, he had an amazing playlist on soundcloud that I went through and this was easily my favorite.

Goodness Gracious by Ellie Goulding (Chainsmoker Remix)

The Chainsmokers played this track in one of their Ultra sets. Hopefully I will attend one of these in real life soon.

And that's that! Those songs right there are what I find reminds me most of last fall, new beginnings and my longed for UMass friends.

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

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.

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.
