If you are an avid music listener, you may know that most of the time “covers” of original, popular songs usually don’t live up to the hype as their prior. However, these songs are arguably better than the originals and have to be shared with the world. 1.    "Pursuit of Happiness" by Lissie The original Kid Cudi hit really put him on the map for many people, but this cover by Lissie is a mix of Lana Del Rey and Adele. The deep tones in her voice make you truly feel the emotion behind the song, whereas the original slightly skates over the meaning of the song. Check out her other songs; they’re ingenious.

The plan is to get a publication to make myself a more impressive grad school applicant. This is how you become successful in research. But I realized that I'm preparing myself perfectly for a career that I don't want. I don't believe in research as it exists today. READ MORE

In some circles, hanging out on a hammock with friends or by yourself has become the next big thing. The word has even been turned into a verb, making a sentence like, “I was hammocking the other day, when…” completely logical and grammatically correct. (According to some people). Many of my friends and roommates have jumped on the hammock train, and have almost convinced me to do the same. Here are just a few of the many reasons why you should also try out hammocking if you...
