Women on Country with a Focus of the MEN

Women of Country

Recently I was listening to a playlist on Spotify called "Women of Country" I love this playlist because it has all the amazing women of country music. There is one common trend that I noticed in this playlist with these women. Just about every song was about a man.

These are powerful, inspiring women and they're singing about being in love or heartbreak. I just couldn't believe it. I mean I know country music is know for being centered on love. But this is ridicules. Don't believe me? Here are some examples:

1. Jolene by Dolly Parton

This song is about a woman trying to steal Dolly's husband and she is begging her not to.

2. I Got the Boy by Jana Kramer

Jana is talking about one of her ex boyfriends and how he is getting married. She is going on about how he was a different person when she was with him. "I got the boy, she got the man."

3. Any Man of Mine by Shania Twain

The great Shania Twain even is on the list. She is giving all these requirements about what a guy has to be like if they want to be with her.

4. Vice by Miranda Lambert

Miranda shouldn't be a shock as to why she's on the list. Her ex husband Blake Shelton left her for another woman. So she made this song to describe her suffering and how she was coping with her divorce.

5. Church Bells by Carrie Underwood

Mrs. Underwood also shouldn't be a surprise, all the she writes about is love and heartbreak she goes from singing Before He Cheats to Heartbeat. This girl is like flipping a switch but she is amazing woman, mother, and wife. I just hope Mike Fischer never cheat on her for the sake of his vehicle anyway.

Now there are of course songs on the playlist that are not about men, like 80s Mercedes, Road Less Traveled, and Fly. But majority of them are from these amazing, women that inspire us to be ourselves, but how are we suppose to follow their lead when all they focus on is men?

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.
