The Zodiac Playlist: Leo Edition

If your birthday is between July 23 and August 22, this playlist is for you!

If your birthday falls between July 23 and August 22, then your zodiac sun sign is Leo! This sign is proud, bold, ambitious, and downright awesome. It's fittingly represented by a lion, and its element is fire.

via GIPHY

This playlist is full of songs that perfectly represent this fiery zodiac sign. The songs in it represent everything from the sign's element, traits, and its symbol, the iconic lion. Many of songs were handpicked by several different Leos who know exactly what their sign is about, so expect this to be #relatable!

Check this playlist out, Leos!

What Defines An Individual?

Is the Myers Briggs Test better at revealing your personality than your zodiac sign?

Before anybody starts yelling at me about pseudo-science or anything, I would love to preface this by acknowledging that both the zodiac and the Myers Briggs personality test (or the 16 personalities test) are more for funsies than real-world applications.

With that out of the way, I would love to ask: which is the better pseudo-science?

Horoscopes and the zodiac in general are based on birth date (and if you're super into it, the time and place for moon signs, rising signs... it goes on). I am totally a Pisces, although the zodiac changes have switched me to an Aquarius, which I have decided to completely reject and ignore because it does not fit at all.

I used to check my horoscope every day, though somewhat dubiously while still simultaneously whispering, "Wow, that's really accurate."

Then I really looked at what I was reading. Those things are so vague.

"You will encounter conflict today." Yeah, OK, but where? Getting mad at another driver while commuting to my internship? Trying to decide what I want to eat later? No kidding I'm encountering conflict, I do every day in such trivial things. Anybody could say that.

That's when I stopped checking my horoscope. I was like, "Hey, wait a minute, these are so vague that they'd obviously be applicable to anybody" (though the romance ones were always hilariously wrong). I still totally feel my Pisces profile, but horoscopes themselves are kind of useless to me. What am I really gaining from them?

I took the Myers Briggs test a little while ago and got INFJ. Cue the entire "wow, this is so me" thought process all over again.

Yes, I did, in fact, do this a second time.

While my zodiac sign fits me perfectly, there's something kind of weird in assuming somebody's entire personality based on when they were born. It makes more sense to take an entire test, rightIn a sense, yeah. You're actually answering based on how you feel, rather than having it pre-determined for you.

However, on the flip side, there's not always a ton of consistency in it. While the zodiac is relatively (I'm still pretending the change didn't happen) consistent, you can definitely change up some answers on the personality test depending on how you feel and get a different type entirely.

I feel like I understand how I interact with people more clearly with the Myers Briggs test, and that it describes me more based on my actual personality and answers to the test. People seem to buy into it more than astrology, too.

On the flip side, I could possibly take it now and get a totally different typecast, while I'm a Pisces forever.

What's the verdict? You gotta freak what you feel, because both are equally debatable... and people will definitely debate.

The "Songs To Listen To At Night" Playlist

Wait until it gets dark out before you listen.

Nighttime.

It's simultaneously calming and energetic, a polarizing effect that's dizzyingly addictive. It's the time where night owls thrive, and where others find quiet solace. No matter what feeling you get out of the nighttime, this playlist is for you.

This playlist is all about that feeling that the nighttime gives you. Featuring songs like "Believer" by Imagine Dragons, "Do I Wanna Know?" by Arctic Monkeys, and "Can't Feel My Face," by The Weeknd, this playlist offers some energetic tracks that will get you pumped.

Also sprinkled in are some quieter, slower tracks, like "Stars" by The xx, and "The Red Truth" by Helios. These tracks are to represent the calming effect of the nighttime.

All of the tracks are connected together with a similar sound that's perfect for nighttime listening. There's a song in here for everyone, no matter which way the night makes you feel.

Wait until nighttime (or at least turn off the lights!) and check out this playlist.

The Forgotten One-Hit Wonders Playlist

Remember these?

One-hit wonders. Sometimes, they're memorable and engraved into your mind. Other times, they're not.

This playlist is the latter. With 42 songs in total, there's plenty of songs on here that you may have completely forgotten about. Or, maybe you do know these songs, and you won't recognize them until those first strums of the guitar or those first words sung on the mic.

Hell, I didn't even remember some of these songs until I started making the playlist.

Also, keep in mind, this is the FORGOTTEN playlist for one-hit wonders. So, songs like "I'm Too Sexy" by Right Said Fred and "Ice Ice Baby" by Vanilla Ice don't have eligibility here.

Have fun, enjoy the songs, and see how many of these you know...or forgot about!

Disney Just Announced Release Dates For Frozen 2 And A New Lion King

And Seth Rogan will be in one for some reason.

As finals week attempts to darken your upcoming days, Disney is doing everything in their power to prevent that gloom by announcing release dates for the highly anticipated Frozen 2 and even more so, the live action remake of The Lion King.

Frozen 2 will hit the theaters during prime time movie season, right around Thanksgiving. Specifically, November 27th 2019. Unfortunately, we face over a two and a half year wait for the sequel, but the upside is that it can only mean Disney is planning to make this an absolutely spectacular film.

Slightly sooner, however, is the live action (but not really, because CGI) remake of The Lion King, which will be showing starting July 19th, 2019! It has already been announced that Donald Glover (AKA Childish Gambino) would play Simba, James Earl Jones will return as Mufasa, and even Beyonce is considering voicing Nala.

Recently, there were also two more casting announcements made, and fans' prayers have been answered! Billy Eichner will play Timon, and in what is arguably the greatest, most perfect decision ever, Seth Rogen will play Pumbaa!

I mean, come on, just imagine how hard you're going to laugh when you hear him singing the intro to "Can You Feel The Love Tonight".

These two films are already marked in my calendar, and are certainly ones not to miss, but you don't need me to tell you that.
