My Favorite EDM Songs

Hey guys!
So tonight, I was listening to the Calvin Harris station on Pandora, while I was doing my Physics homework and all of my favorite songs were playing. I decided to take a little break from all the physics fun and do a post on my favorite EDM songs!

Midnight City - M83
This is the song that's currently playing as I'm writing this post, and I'm in love. I never get bored of this song, and it always makes me super happy when I hear it!


Outside - Calvin Harris
I literally love every song that Calvin Harris does, but this is his newest one, and I'm obsessed with it! I've literally listened to it probably 20 times today!


Blame - Calvin Harris
Like I said, pretty much every Calvin Harris song ever could be on this list, but this is the other one that I've been especially into lately! If you're wondering about the others I've been loving I'd go with Feel So Close, Thinking About You, and Pray to God.


Wasted - Tiesto
LOVE THIS SONG! It's super catchy and another song that I never get bored of!



Prayer in C - Robin Schultz
Great song, and a really sick music video!


If I Lose Myself - Alesso 
I love One Republic, as many of you know, and this remix of If I Lose Myself is really great! I love how it takes a great song and makes it a little more upbeat!


So, to be honest, this post could be a lot longer, but I refrained myself! I also really like Avicii (You Make Me is great), David Guetta (Play Hard and Titanium are my favs), and Zedd (find you). Let me know what your favorite songs are in the comments, and let me know what type of music you like to listen to whilst doing homework (if you're a student)!

Prioritization

Hey guys!
It's not super late right now, which is kind of surprising because I'm really exhausted! But, I wanted to get this post written for you because prioritization is something that I've been pondering a lot recently. 

The sad fact of life is that there is never enough hours in a day for us to accomplish what we want to. That's where prioritization comes in. We put what we value most on the top of our to-do list, and leave whatever remains until the next day. Is this system perfect? Not quite, but it's the best that we can do. Lately, I've been trying to think about what I prioritize and I've been trying to prioritize based on what is important to me rather than what society or others tell me to prioritize. 

For me, the things that I put on the top of the list are the things that make me happy. That's blogging and making videos. Exercising, eating, spending time with family and friends, sleeping. Some of these things are actually important (like exercising for my health), but other things are small things that I just really like. Before, I would put schoolwork and homework really high on my list and I would stay up late trying to finish it all, but now I really try to evaluate everything and make decisions based on what I want. For example, if I'm really tired and I have a bit of homework left, I'll go to sleep rather than staying up (which is something that I wouldn't have done a few months ago). 

Societal pressures and the internal pressures we feel to do our best sometimes negatively impact the quality of our lives, so I want to challenge you to evaluate your life. Figure out what you truly want to place on the top of your list and compare that to your current list right now, and make changes! I understand that it's hard to feel like you're disappointing others or not trying hard enough, but if you spend time doing things that you personally value, you will feel so much better every single day. Let me know your thoughts on this post in the comments below and let me know what you guys put on the top of your list!

PORTLAND!

Hey everyone!
I was in Portland, Oregon last weekend, and I meant to film a lot so I could do a vlog! I didn't. I got a tinyyyy bit of footage and a few pictures, however, so I used them in this video! Hope you enjoy it!



Let me know in the comments if you've ever been to Portland and what I should do if I go back there! Also, don't forget to subscribe to this channel and give this video a thumbs up if you liked this video!

Where Have I Been?

Hey guys!
I have a video for you today! I know what you're thinking... "a video? what!?!" because it's been over two months since my last video on my vlog channel, which is absolutely crazy and way too long! So if you want to know what I've been up to lately, watch this video!



So, if you like this video, please give it a thumbs up! And don't forget to check out my beauty youtube channel because I post a lot more frequently on that channel and I have a ton of really awesome videos up! I do have a tinyyyy bit of footage for a Portland vlog, but I really don't have enough for a full video (maybe 2 minutes worth of footage at most), so maybe I'll do a travel video on my main channel and stick the footage at the end? Or I could do a video of me talking about my trip and overlay some of the footage on that... Let me know if you have thoughts on how I should do it in the comments!

Music Favorites: January 2015

Hey everyone!
I thought that I'd change the titles of my music favorites to represent the month that I'm loving them! That way, you won't get confused by the tons of "music favorites" posts! Okay, so these are my favorites for January 2015!

Prayer in C - Robin Schulz Remix
Love this song so much! I've probably listened to it around 20 times already today, and I don't plan on stopping! This version is so awesome, and I love it more than the original!



Uptown Funk - Ronson and Bruno Mars
This song has actually grown on me quite a bit. When it was first played, I wasn't a huge fan, but I think that it's super catchy and I'm loving it!



Milky Chance - Flashed Junk Mind
Love Milky Chance! This song is really chill and is something that just relaxes me! Definitely listen to this if you haven't heard it already!



Alesso ft. Tove Lo - Heros
I love Tove Lo! I think her voice is so crazy amazing and this song is another really catchy tune!



So those are a few of the songs I've been loving during January! Let me know what songs you've been loving in the comments below, and check out some of my links too!

Netflix TAG!

Hey everyone!
As many of you know, I am a huge fan of Netflix, and I pretty much watch it non-stop! I heard about the Netflix tag that's been going around the blogosphere, and I thought that I'd do it today for you all! 

1) What are your favorite series on Netflix?
Gossip Girl, Undercover Boss, The Office, Parks and Recreation, the Twilight Zone, Friends, and Dance Moms!

2) What are you currently watching on Netflix?
I've been trying to watch through all of the seasons of Parks and Recreation. I'm somewhere in season five right now, and I've been doing around an episode a day! I'm also watching some Gossip Girl too!

3) If you could have any series put on Netflix, what would it be?
SHARK TANK! I'm literally obsessed with the show, and there's like 6 seasons so I would go crazy watching each episode a billion times!

4) What's your one pet peeve about Netflix?
When it takes forever to buffer!

5) What are your essentials for a perfect night in with Netflix?
Candy! Especially Redvines or SnowCaps! Also, a really fluffy blanket and hot chocolate, coffee, or diet coke to drink!

6) Recommend one series or film for someone else!
I guess it depends on what you like! My favorite movie I've watched on Netflix would be either Breakfast at Tiffany's, Human Centipede, or World War Z. My favorite television shows would be Gossip Girl, Parks and Rec, the Office, and Friends! Haha that's wayyyy more than one series, but oh well! 

So I hope you enjoyed this post! Let me know in the comments what you love to watch on netflix, and don't forget to check out my links!

Second Semester Senior

Hey everyone! 
So my second semester started this week, and as I'm writing this, we're two days into the new semester! This is my last semester of school, so yes, I'm a second semester senior. I've written posts telling you my expectations for the semester, and what I'm taking for my classes, and I thought I'd do it again! 

But first... Senioritis. It is a thing, and I've been struggling with it since November, to be honest, because I applied everywhere super early and I was done with everything by then. I am such a good student, and now, I feel zero motivation towards school. I guess that's good because I can channel that energy into work, blogging, and youtubing, but my grades are somewhat slipping..... (I'll do another post on my first semester grades when they come out!)

English - Bible as Literature
Did. Not. Want. This. It was literally one of the classes that I did not want to take at all, but all of the other english courses offered conflicted a ton with my classes, and this was the only class that could fit. I also needed this class to complete my 4 years of english!

Spanish IV
Spanish is fun! It's my fourth year taking it, and I kind of wanted to drop this semester as it's super project based and not really "learning", but I figured why not!

Advanced Biotechnology
The only class I'm super excited about! I'm going to major in biochemistry in college, and this class seems like such great preparation and we're going to be doing a ton of DNA and Protein based labs and I'm psyched for it!

AP Physics 1&2
Sooooo not my subject... I hate physics, but I'm taking both 1&2 so I can take the AP test and hopefully test out of some of the physics courses I'll need to take in college! (But this is a class I actually need to TRY in!)

Advanced Pre Calculus
I'm not super great at pre calculus either, but the class moves really quickly and a lot faster than regular pre calculus. We're learning matrices right now, and that seems pretty good, though!

AP European History
Love this class! So much fun, and my teacher and classmates are wonderful! This is a class that I don't try super hard in, but feel like I'm learning a ton regardless!

So those are the 6 courses I'm taking this semester! I'll keep you updated on them :P Let me know if you experienced the second semester senior syndrome or senioritis in the comments, and check out some of my links below!
