15 Life Lessons I Learned From Disney Channel Original Movies

Disney Channel original movies were filled with morality and meaning.

15 Life Lessons I Learned From Disney Channel Original Movies

1. "The Thirteenth Year"

If you think you might be a mermaid, do not keep such important information from your family. And if you are indeed a mermaid and 13, make sure to stay away from water.

2. "The Luck of the Irish"

Being a leprechaun or having lucky coins will not always make you lucky. Practice and talent will always persevere.

3. "Johnny Tsunami"

Always make the best of every situation you are in. Whenever one door closes, there will always be another open. Take risks and never stop believing in yourself.

4. "Zenon: Girl of the 21st Century"

If you are aboard a space ship and you think the commander is evil, take your chances and bring him or her down. These are the moments that define who we are and what we will become. Lead when everyone else follows. Stand when everyone else sits and speak when all others remain silent.

5. "Jumping Ship"

Always have some knowledge and basic survival skills, especially if there will ever be a chance you will be stranded on an island.

6. "The Even Stevens Movie"

If you ever are stranded on an island because you pissed off some tribe people, then make a point to make sure you aren't on some reality TV show. HINT: If you see wires and cable chords on the beach, you should be suspicious.

7. "Smart House"

If your house is smarter than you, make sure you don't piss it off. Especially when it can lock you inside or create storms in the living room. Just don't trust a smart house.

8. "Halloweentown"

Magic is really very simple. All you have to do is want something and then let yourself have it.

9. "Halloweentown II"

If you bring a cute boy upstairs, don't show him your magical grandmother's secret room where he could get his hands on powerful spell books. Also, don't judge a boy based on his looks. If there is something froggy about him, listen to your instincts.

10. "Get a Clue"

If your teacher goes missing and you think you have good detective skills, there is no shame in pulling a "Scooby Doo" and taking matters into your own hands. Never underestimate a bunch of suburban New York City teenagers.

11. "The Cheetah Girls"

Working as a team means that everyone is a leader. Trying to control everything and everyone all the time will never work out. Be considerate of other people's feelings. By the way, there is nothing wrong with carrying hot sauce in your purse!

12. "High School Musical"

Do not stick to the status quo. If you like to do something, like bake or sing, then do it! Do not let what other people think dictate how you live your life.

13. "Wish Upon a Star"

Be careful when wishing upon stars. You could just accidentally switch bodies with your sister.

14. "Motocrossed"

Girls can do anything just as well as boys. Being a girl should not restrict you from following your dreams. No matter how "boyish" they are.

15. "The Color of Friendship"

Race should not matter when determining whether you should be friends with someone. This world is filled with racism, sexism, and discrimination. Always stand true to the value that friendship has no color.

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
