Weekly Summer Playlist


By: Maggie French


Every day is a new day for beginnings.

Recently, my sister graduated from high school. She’s beginning to take the steps toward the next chapter of her life in college. Though the transition from high school to college can be stressful and frightening, it is an opportunity to be independent and start anew. My cousin also proposed to his girlfriend, which is a big step in their relationship. They will be starting a new life together and adjusting to the changes and challenges that marriage can bring.

Life is full of opportunities to try new things, but sometimes these things can be intimidating and scary because we don’t know what the future holds. That’s why this week’s playlist is about change, trying something new and moving on in life.

This playlist is full of songs about moving on to bigger and better things, but also not forgetting the memories that you’ve made along the way. The playlist features recognizable artists such as Miley Cyrus, Green Day and Kelly Clarkson, but also some smaller artists that people might not know.

My sister inspired this playlist, so I’d like to rightfully dedicate it to her.
