Because sometimes wearing green isn't enough

10  Irish based movies for St.Patty's day
Irish Channel

St. Patrick day is a holiday loved many, myself included. Everyone will wear green and if they are over 21, drink green beer. Here is some movies to watch St. Patrick's day.


This movie is an example of cheese to the extreme. It has Jennifer Aniston in one of her first movie roles. It spawned many terrible sequels.

2. The Luck of the Irish

This is a movie from many peoples childhoods, that nowadays makes you go "huh?" when you read the plot. A link from Wikipedia can be found here. Read the plot and just laugh at it.

3. Once

Once is a musical movie that has great music . It was on Broadway a couple of years ago. If you're looking for a modern love story this is it.

4.The Quiet Man

The Quiet Man tells the story of a American man fight for his love, literally. It has John Wayne in the movie. That is all I have to tell you.

5.The Secret of Kells

The Secret of Kells tells the story of a monk fighting against darkness. It's something different from your traditional animated movie, a little darker than most. It was nominated for Best Animated Feature at the Oscars.

6. The Gangs of New York

If you like bloody and violent movies, this is the movie for you . It has Leonardo DiCaprio and Daniel Day-Lewis facing off in the classic revenge story with fighting over a women into the mix.

7. The Departed

Just look at the cast list alone at that should convince you .

8. Brooklyn

Brooklyn was the underdog film at Oscars a couple years ago. It seems like the perfect movie to watch if you want a feel good story. It has romance of the American dream, along with love between people as well.

10 . Leap Year

Leap Year throws some gender norms on its head, with a girl purposing to a guy. It has Amy Adams... that's about it for the cast. If you want a movie to take your mind off of stuff for a while, this is the movie for you.

11.Angela's Ashes

Based of a memoir of the same name, this movie tells the story of a man trying to get back to America after having to move in Ireland with his family.

These are my picks to watch movie this St. Patrick day. Enjoy and be safe.

Thanks for reading! :)

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
