MY TOP 5 SONGS OF TORI KELLY

Tori Kelly is 23 years old, but she has shown amazing vocal ability. She’s a new artist who has stolen my heart with her amazing songs. She is currently nominated for the Best New Artist Grammy this year with James Bay, Sam Hunt, Courtney Barnett and Meghan Trainor. She first started on YouTube at the age of 14th, and at the age of 16th she auditioned for American Idol and getting known to many people. With her own hard work, she created her own EP, titled Handmade Songs by Tori Kelly.

Her ability to do runs and riffs effortlessly are my favorites. *Check one of her riffs in youtube. The keyword is Pretty Young Things*. It’s not her original song though, but I like it! I really love her. She’s different than the other famous singer. She sings about things that really matters, not about drugs, sex, etc. Plus, her voice is flawless, dashing and soothing.

In this article, I’m going to share my 5 favorite songs of her with my favorite lyrics.

 

  1. All In My Head

I am so in love with this song. This is like my favorite song of her for now. But I have no strong determination when it comes to Tori’s songs. In this song, her voice is so stunning, I really like it, and the lyrics are so… beautifully sad.

 

Was it real or was it fake?

Was it all a mistake?

Boy, I just gotta know was it all in my head, all in my head?

Did you ever feel the same?

Was my mind just playing games?

Boy, I just gotta know was it all in my head, all in my head?

  1. Dear No One

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=njmCUJ94lUM

The chorus is just so heart-catching. *cry* *np: <Miranda Sings> Where Ma Baes At*

 

So if you’re out there I swear to be good to you

But I’m done lookin’, for my future someone

Cause when the time is right

You’ll be here, but for now

Dear no one, this is your love song

  1. The Art Of Letting Go

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yjv0SW6skRw

I really love the first verse of this song. It’s just so relatable… To everyone. Or maybe some. *try not to make it obvious* *joking*

 

We were just little kids, we were ambiguous

My crush was serious, it’s crazy how

As we were growing up, I could just set you up

But it just wasn’t love, I guess the stars

Never aligned for us, life just snuck up on us

You got a girlfriend and stuff, feelings are bottled up

Hide ’em in this song, take the key and lock it up

But when I see you again, no, I can’t even pretend

 

  1. Personal

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7TjoMzDm4Q8

Go ahead and say it, Tori said, don’t you hide it ‘cause we (girls) can see it.

 

Spent my whole life looking for the one I could call

Wasted all my time on you tryna make this beautiful

But it’s clear to see you don’t love me at all

Baby, go ahead and say it

I won’t take it personal

  1. Unbreakable Smile

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CVOvhKCYKAc

This one is also my favorite. It’s so catchy. I will probably jamming to this in the class, in the cafeteria, in the toilet, or wherever and whenever I want.

 

So call me boring, call me cookie cutter

Call me what you want

A matter of fact

Just say it loud and don’t st-stutter

‘Cause I know who I am, yeah I’m still the same

Just a California girl with big dreams

Thinking maybe they’ll let me sing songs about real things

And baby who knows maybe I can sell out shows without taking off my clothes

God made me sexy I don’t care if only I know

“And baby who knows maybe I can sell out shows without taking off my clothes.” -Unbreakable Smile, Tori Kelly.

10 TIPS TO THRIVE IN YOUR FRESHMAN YEAR

As a college student, you learn subconsciously how to adjust in college to undergo your days normally. I also, as a college student, although still in a short period of time, learned how to adjust in college. And in this article, I’m going to share some tips of me trying to survive in the same kind of sphere too. Teehee 😹✌

 

  1. Organized your things. College is different than high school. You should be more enthusiastic because of the assignments that are waiting for you. Buy an organizer, use your calendar or any other good ideas to let you know the deadline of the assignments.
  2. Expand your network of friends. The people in the college mostly are going through similar circumstances and experiences, so try to make friends. Because when you do, then you’re safe. PS: There will be a time when you need friend to ‘help’ you because of your apathy. HEHEHEHE…
  3. Be active on sororities or fraternities. Consider joining a group, organization, etc. You’ll learn new skills, and feel more connected to your school. But be careful not to go overboard.
  4. Find ways to cope with stress. Prepare some time and a to-do list that help you take the stress out of your day. Whether it’s doing gymnastics thing, making a diary, watching your favorite k-drama or any kind of movies, don’t forget to pamper yourself.
  5. Don’t procrastinate. Do not postpone any task or assignment when you have it. There’s a saying, “Don’t abandon your task, because later, the task will meet another abandoned tasks. And when they do, they will fall in love and bear another tasks so that the tasks become plenty.”
  6. Save money. Try to make a list of things you need, things you’d buy for daily stuff, and some unexpected disbursement. When you have some remaining money, save it. Don’t use it for things unworthy, somewhile, you’ll regret it.
  7. Eat a lot, exercise a lot. If you’re a food lover like me, at least try to keep your body in a good shape. Exercise helps, just search any kind of videos in youtube or another sources to help you maintain your body. Also, don’t forget to stay fit by eating healthy food.
  8. Be responsible. Man up and realize the mistakes you’ve done, don’t blame it to others. Be responsible for everything that happens to you.
  9. Enjoy your activities. If there’s a time when you feel pressured or stressed and make you lazy to keep going, just be grateful for it. See it in a different perspective. Stress can motivate and help you accomplish tasks more efficiently. Some said, it can even boost concentration and productivity.
  10. Strive for perfection. Although being perfect is impossible, at least you strive for it. Be confident in everything you do to increase the result of your work. Hard work won’t lie.

 

I hope this article can help you. There might be more effective and interesting tips. If you have another interesting tips, don’t be shy to share it in the comment page below. I hope we can get through the freshman year peacefully. 🙂

 

 

Most Embarrassing Yet Memorable Moments In High School

 

High School was indeed one of the best times in my life. There was time when we do silly things and never actually cared about what other people thought because we were so carefree. I went to a small school, so we basically knew almost everyone. There’s only a few people in my batch so we’re really like a family. We can do almost everything together, although there might be around one or two people who act like a hypocrite, but it’s okay.

This article will be about my most embarrassing and memorable moment in High School. Have you ever did the same thing like mine in your youth?

  1. Pretty Boy

There will always be a cool and handsome boy that you like in the school, right? Well, I also had one that time. Although he doesn’t have the ideal height of a man, but his smile and soothing face were the best! This occurred in the very first months of school. One day, when I was admiring him, my friend saw me and approached me said she would do anything as long as I got to know him better. WARNING! The next few words are a little bit outrageous for me. In fact, SO OUTRAGEOUS THAT I DON’T WANT TO RECALL THE MEMORIES. My friend was so sincere and straightforward that I couldn’t help but ashamed. Because she insisted, so I said, “Okay, up to you, as long as it’s normal.” She agreed and started to approach him in a way that I couldn’t think of. She took her phone out and then took a picture of his face. The thing that made me so angry was that SHE TOOK IT IN FRONT OF HIS FACE! A lot of his friends saw her doing her idiocy and laughed out loud. I was so shocked and angry. Although in the end she apologized to me, but I still can not forget the embarrassing part of it. After that incident, he remembered our faces and every time he saw me I just felt so awkward and never wanted to see him ever again. I was so childish back then. Not anymore, though.

 

  1. The First

I was eating with my friends in the canteen while break time, and at the same time, we were talking and laughing. When we were too busy being sarcastic about our schoolmates, we forget about time and the chapter test that’d led by a renowned killer teacher in the class. We were so afraid and didn’t want to enter the class but our bags were in front of the class so the teacher would have known if we’re missing. I was with my bestfriends that time. One of my friends persuaded us to skip his class for once and said he wouldn’t notice we’re missing. She was so convincing which made us fall into her nice words. We trusted her and decided to hide in the toilet. Can you imagine how smelly it is? After a long time of arguing what’s best, we moved into an empty class. When we already felt so safe and secured, there was this teacher came in without our knowledge. We became so afraid because she asked us to go upstairs and meet with the teacher. PLUS, when the class was over, some friends approached us and said that the teacher missed us so much and wanted us to meet him. Wait, they’re being sarcastic at us. Karma does exist, guys. Well, at first, we didn’t believe them. But when we went back to the classroom to take our bags, turned out our bags weren’t there anymore! That’s the reason why we enter the office afterwards. We saw our bags beside the teacher and approached him to say sorry also to get our bags back. But this’s what he said, “For approximately 13th years of my teaching, you guys are the first female students that skipped my class. I am so disappointed. I had expected more of you guys, y’ know.” WHOA! He has humiliated us in front of the teachers and the students in the room more than what we thought because he yelled at us. He asked us whether or not to tell our parents, but we begged him not to tell them. So, he didn’t tell our parents but he gave us an excessive punishment. This is so embarrassing. We didn’t know it would be this far. Sorry, Mom, Dad. *cry*

 

  1. NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE

This one isn’t about High School, but this happened when I was in High School. It’s about my super slim crazy friend’s choice. I have five besties. I don’t know why, but I just love them. One day, we decided to celebrate the new year together in my house, so they said they wanted to sleepover. One day before the last day of the year, four of them came on time. But this super slim friend, named Ete, was celebrating the new year with her boyfriend so she was ended up late. The determined time had passed, the gate of my residential was closed and locked and we didn’t have the keys to unlock it. At first, we thought she would come tomorrow afternoon but our assumption was wrong. The gate usually open at 4:00 in the morning yet she came at 1:00! We searched every possible way to help her pass the gate. No one came up with a great idea, until she decided to climb the gate with full of fern and sharp object. “HEY YOU TINY LITTLE CREATURE! YOU CAN’T DO THAT. IT’S IMPOSSIBLE!” We yelled at her but she already had a strong determination. We made a video of her climbing up the gate with her tiny size of a body and still laughing when we saw it again and again. It’s almost impossible, but because of this accident, we believed that there’s nothing impossible when you put your mind to it. ✌

 

There’s actually a lot more memorable moments, but it’d be so much to share in this article. The point of this article is, “never regret any embarrassing experience you’ve done in the past, because in the future, it is one of the best things to remember.”
