This week marks the end of my college career, the point in which I finally become a grown ass woman. I've waited for this moment for years and now that its within reach I'm not quite sure what to do with it. There's a lot I'm going to miss about being in school but there's quite a bit more that I won't be missing like the all nighters, final exams, and the computer lab people who, more often than not, are reminiscent of the bridge troll in Three Billy Goats Gruff. 

Despite my excitement, there are a number of things I have learned over the course of these 4 1/2 years that have helped shaped me. Things like: 

- For every 15 minutes of studying you should allow yourself 2 hours of internet.
- Crocodile tears in the financial aid office are a good way to take care of your tuition costs.
- Get a cat. Learn to accept the fact that you will probably love that cat more than your future kids. 
- Delete that 90% of your high school class on Facebook. Knowing that you never have to acknowledge the class of '07 baby boom and those awkward bathroom mirror/duck face photos ever again is an amazing feeling.
- Uggs are never an acceptable form of footwear. 
- And above all else remember that copious amounts of pizza can fix anything. 

Here's 10 tracks featuring artists that helped me learn these lessons and get through college in one piece.
