It seems like we've been hearing news about the election for years now. Many of us college students have the opportunity to vote in 2016, just make sure to vote wisely. Yea for rights!

4. "Finding Dory"

It's the moment we've been waiting for since 2003 when "Finding Nemo" first came out: "Finding Dory." This spectacular sequel is coming to theaters on June 17, 2016, and I know your inner child is longing to see it.

5. iPhone 7

With the recent release of the iPhone 6s, customers are even more excited for the iPhone 7 to come out since the 6s was a bit of a disappointment. Rumors say that the iPhone 7 is going to be thinner with more unexpected design elements.

6. Firefly 2016

Firefly—one of the most anticipated, biggest music festivals of the summer—has released its lineup, and it is insanely amazing. The festival consists of four days of amazing artists playing their latest and greatest hits, including Mumford and Sons, Ellie Goulding, Kings of Leon, Florence and the Machine, and a bunch more.

10. Summer

I can guarantee almost everyone loves summer. Whether it's the no homework aspect, going to the beach, or just lounging on the couch all day, summer is sure to be fun and relaxing.

11. One Direction Concert

Another concert to save up your money for! One Direction's new album includes perfect songs to jam out to with your friends.

12. Saint Patrick's Day

A huge holiday filled with drinking, green outfits, and friends. Not much more than that.

13. Syllabus Week

The best time of the year is when us college kids have no work and can go out every night, and it is still acceptable. Pretty awesome if you ask me.

14. Friends' 21st Birthdays

Several college kids will be turning 21 in 2016, which means you get to attend tons of birthday parties with your best friends.

15. The Unexpected

Whether it's a summer internship, new friends, or even a new pet, 2016 will bring many opportunities and exciting new things or events to your life.

16. Good Times Spent with Family and Friends

While we can't have any big Christmas parties or family gatherings, we can still celebrate at home!

As we enter the new year, you might be looking for a great show to kick-off 2021. Look no further, I have the perfect recommendation. "The Wilds" was released on Amazon Prime last month and has been gaining traction steadily since then. This series of 10 one-hour episodes tells the stories of eight girls who find themselves on a deserted island after their plane crashed while they are on their way to a resort. Unlike other survival shows, there's a bit more to the story than what first meets the eye. This show is unique in characters, storytelling methods, and plot.

If you aren't convinced yet, allow me to provide you with a list of further persuasion.

11 TV Characters Who Are Irritating BEYOND Belief

Maybe they never really did anything seriously wrong, but oh my god they are annoying af.


Have you ever been watching your favorite show, all comfortable and relaxed, and then that one character that you just can't stand pops up on the screen and ruins your mood? I know I certainly have. These characters aren't necessarily evil or horrible people, but they do have personalities that make them incredibly irritating. They're the kind of characters that make you want to yell at the writer, "what the hell were you thinking with this one?" Perhaps they have never hurt a fly, but it doesn't matter since their character just straight-up sucks.

By the way, some of my arguments contain spoilers, so fair warning.
