10 Must-Watch Pre-2010 Movies
20th Century Fox

When Harry Met Sally (1989)

The ultimate romantic comedy.

Little Miss Sunshine (2006)

Both quirky and moving, this beautifully directed movie about a young girl and her family heading cross-country in their van for her beauty pageant is a great feel-good flick.

The Virgin Suicides (1999)

Filmmaker Sofia Coppola pays astounding attention to detail, making this mysterious story about five teenage sisters who commit suicide all the more haunting.

Pulp Fiction (1994)

A must-see if you haven’t yet. This gory and dramatic movie follows the interwoven lives of multiple characters. Quentin Tarantino at his best.

500 Days of Summer (2009)

The ultimate anti-romantic-comedy. From the start, the audience is told that the main characters’ relationship is doomed, but the nonlinear format only compels you to keep watching its demise.

American Beauty (1999)

Kevin Spacey’s performance as unhappy suburban dad Lester Burnham is equally as convincing as Frank Underwood in “House of Cards.” Relatable and at time psychedelic, this movie will definitely make you think.

Lost in Translation (2003)

Again, Sofia Coppola’s filmmaking is breathtaking. The ambiguous relationship between the two American protagonists living and working in Tokyo creates an ongoing dichotomy of both intense closeness and alienation.

Almost Famous (2000)

A charming and intriguing look into life on the road with a 1970’s rock band. The music and art direction are an added bonus.

Magnolia (1999)

Another multi-protagonist film with interwoven narratives that focuses on the feeling of loneliness.

Juno (2007)

Ellen Page is brilliant as the lax, loudmouthed teenager who finds herself pregnant and decides to put the baby up for adoption. An imperfect and touching film throughout.

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.
