For those of you that haven't been blessed to know the existence of Mac Demarco, he is a Canadian singer-songwriter classified in the "indie-rock" genre. I first discovered him at the beginning of the summer and the first song I listened to is called "Chamber of Reflection", which is his most popular one. That is one of my favorite songs, but I want to let the world know about many of his not so popular songs, that are unique in their own way. If you do know Mac, you probably do know "Chamber of Reflection" or even "Ode to Viceroy". I'm here to unleash a few songs that you might have never heard of and will be music to your ears.

1. "Freaking Out The Neighborhood"

"Freaking Out The Neighborhood" is off of Mac's '2' album. The intro is so groovy and gives me total ~70s~ vibes. The guitar throughout the song and the drums that come in during the verses make me bop my head until it falls off. Guaranteed to make you get up and bust a calm move! (Don't go too hard though)

2. "Passing Out Pieces"

"Passing Out Pieces" is off of Mac's 2014 album, "Salad Days". This is a song I look at the window to when I'm in the car or traveling long distance. I think about life and make sure nobody takes advantage of me..."passing out pieces of me, don't you know nothing comes free?" I think this song is enjoyable because everyone can relate to it and it has a funky beat.

3. "Without Me"

OK, seriously, if you haven't heard this song, open up Spotify and listen to it once, twice, three times...just keep it on replay. The first time I heard Without Me, off of Mac's album "Another One", I cried. Yup. It's such a sad song and will get you in your feels, but it is so WORTH IT... "Will she love me again tomorrow? I don't know, don't think so, and that's fine, fine by me
as long as, long as I know she's happy, happy." UGH!!

4. "Peperroni Playboy"

This song is off of the "Salad Days" demos, and I never thought I would like it or be obsessed with it...because it has no lyrics. I put this song on when I'm laying in bed or when I need a tune to keep me going while studying. I'm pretty sure it was supposed to be the beat of a song but was never actually released. Anyway, give it a listen and let the song to the talking...even though there are no lyrics. Use your imagination!!

There you have it. I hope you fall in love with Mac Demarco as much as I did when I first gave him a listen. Enjoy!

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.
