Yeah, I Like Rap Music

People get confused when I say I like rap

Yeah, I Like Rap Music

Music is something that I feel has the power to bring us all together.

That being said, I don't understand why people seem to be so down on rap music. When I meet someone new and the inevitable question of what my favorite kind of music is, comes up they are always surprised to hear me say rap. I guess I don't "look the part" which makes me wonder what a rap fan is supposed to look like. I imagine its a person that likes rap music but apparently I'm wrong.

I get that rap music's stereotype isn't great, but it is just that, a stereotype, it isn't always true. I feel people assume a lot when it comes to rap music

Rap has always intrigued me. The idea of speaking and rhyming so quick and fluid is awesome. I can't sing very well and I feel that rapping doesn't require a good singing voice. It does require a quick-thinking mind, which for some can be hard.

To rap all one has to do is being to speak and rhyme on beat, something I am more able to do. I don't rap, but I feel that If I was forced to do one or the other, my rapping would fair better than my singing.

The first "rap" I ever heard was from Epic Rap Battles of History. I'd have their playlist on repeat while I did homework and could do a few of them. Eminem is the big one I listen to nowadays. Cinderella man and Rap god were the ones that got me to listen. Since then JT Music has been the second big rap artist that I listen to.

The Venom movie had a song by Eminem in it and that has gotten me back into Slim Shady's world. I hope just maybe this has gotten you to potentially try out rap music instead of just dismissing it like everyone else.

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.
