Forever Winter by Taylor Swift
The song was dedicated by the singer to her friend she lost. He is the first person she plays the song (she writes) to. She didn't know he was suffering from mental illness. Mental Health awareness is such an underrated topic. This is my theme for 2021 because there are people I love who I know suffer silently, and I want to be the person who they can run to during their dark days. I want to let them know that they are loved and that it will be a barren cold day, everyday, when they leave or when they are gone.

“I know all those words, but that sentence makes no sense to me.”
― Matt Groening
“The end of the human race will be that it will eventually die of civilization.”
― Ralph Waldo Emerson
“Which of us is happy in this world? Which of us has his desire? or, having it, is satisfied?”
― William Makepeace Thackeray
Brave New World, written by Aldous Huxley is a utopian novel that uses satire to a great extent. Brave New World takes place in the future, where people are no longer born, and are artificially created. People are placed into five classes before birth and are conditioned to like what they do, and not to think for themselves. Throughout the book Huxley uses satire against religion, family and society. In this futuristic world, a religion exists that opposes what religion stands for today. First of all, the God that the people worship is Henry Ford, the inventor of the conveyor belt and the model-T. They worship Ford because of his vision to increase production by having his workers add the same part to multiple cars during the day. Instead of the sign of the cross that is performed in Christianity, the futuristic citizens make a "T" on their chest, as in the model-T he invented. Instead of saying "O God!" they say "O Ford!" In the book, Christianity is considered a plague of the past. The world controller says that Christianity controlled what people did and thought and restricted the fun that people could have. The new religion was all about fun and sex. They are taught to almost never be alone but when they are they are to take soma, a perfect drug that eliminates thinking with no hangover afterwards, and recite sayings while having sex with one another. Brave New World is also a satire against the current, modern family. The word "mother" is considered an insult in their society, and the word "father" is considered a joke, something to laugh at. The world controller, Mustapha Mond made several references to how corrupt and wrong the family was. Two parents who knew little about parenting were expected to raise the country's future productive citizens. There were always conflicts at home, unlike at the beautiful, educational conditioning centers in the new world. John being called a savage shows irony in Brave New World. John is the character that most resembles today's values. He does not want to have sex with Lenina, even though she wants him to.
He wants to marry her and express his devotion to her in some way, two foreign concepts to Lenina. Lenina rejects this, and just starts taking her clothes off. Throughout the end of the book, John tries to
get people to think, but to no avail. John Savage is the voice of reason. Brave New World is a novel full of satire in many different topics like organized religion, families, and society. I think Huxley saw that we have no technological limits and if we abuse it this is what will happen. It's kind of like a reminder of not letting this get out of control.

Lukas Graham - 7 Years
The song is basically about events in our lives and the things we hope to achieve in the coming years. It emphasizes each defining moment Graham recalls in his life where the advice of his parents proved true. The wisdom of those who have already lived much of their lives is invaluable, as it will guide those who listen on a path of fulfillment and happiness.

As you watch the video, you see glimpses of different parts of his life that gave Avicii a euphoric feeling. The song and video serve as a reminder that you never know how long you have, so live a life you will remember.
