24 Questions I Have After Re-Watching The 'Twilight' Series

How did I ever think this was top-notch cinematography?

24 Questions I Have After Re-Watching The 'Twilight' Series

This past weekend I came to a sudden realization that "Twilight" is still a series that exists and I have access to all five movies. I, like many gross middle schoolers, read all the books after my mom gave me permission and I swooned at how amazing I thought they were. And I won't even lie about it: I definitely fantasized about meeting a guy like Edward Cullen. And now, roughly ten years later, I re-watched the films out of pure curiosity and boy oh boy do I have some questions about what I saw.

1. First of all, what was Kristen Stewart's face reactions?

Obviously, she's a much better actress than she was ten years ago. But we all have to admit that the face reactions, over-the-top sighs, and rapid blinking were just a little too much.

2. Why was Bella so darn clumsy?

Summit Entertainment

There's no way anybody can be that clumsy and just that bad at staying on their own two feet! Falling down every once in a while is decent characterization, but for it to keep happening over and over and over is a little ridiculous.

3. Why does everyone in the new school know who Bella is immediately?

Summit Entertainment

This confusion may lie in the fact that I went to a high school where just my graduating class had 700 students, and the idea of anybody being aware that there was a new student on campus was slim to none. But was the school really just that small that everyone immediately knew who she was and had to treat her like a celebrity?

4. Can we talk about why this was Edward's reaction after first seeing Bella?

Summit Entertainment

Edward has zero chill, there is no reason for him to be that extra with his reaction to her walking into the room.

5. Was "It's the fluorescents" really the best excuse Edward could give when Bella questioned him about his eyes changing color?

Summit Entertainment

You could've just told Bella she was tripping instead of making yourself look stupid with that lame excuse.

6. Why did Edward tell Bella they shouldn't be friends after he blatantly ignored her and looked like he wanted to vomit at the first sight of her?

Summit Entertainment

It's not even like he was acting remotely friendly to begin with.

7. The scene where Edward acts like he's the worst monster imaginable, but then he just starts...sparkling?

Summit Entertainment

Sorry that your diamond encrusted body doesn't immediately shout "Mass Blood-Sucking Murderer".

8. Also, the chimes sound effects is a little much.

This scene is ridiculous to begin with, and the idea of a vampire sparkling in the sunlight is already difficult to grasp in the first place, and the added chime sound effect makes this scene more comical than anything else.

9. And why did everyone just overlook the fact that Edward watched Bella while she slept? Why were we all okay with that?

Summit Entertainment


10. Also, how does Edward drive? He must need a driver's license and for that you need a SSN and a birth certificate and Edward's been alive since 1901, so how did that work out at the DMV?

Summit Entertainment

These are the questions I need answers to.

11. And why did Edward keep repeating high school? Is he trying to torture himself? 

Summit Entertainment

My dude just enroll in college, you look old enough to be there. Why would anyone want to keep repeating high school, it makes no sense!

12. "You better hold on tight, spider monkey." Who allowed that line to get past the first draft?

Summit Entertainment

All I want to know is how Robert Pattinson managed to say that with a straight face.

13. Why can't Emmett sit down in a car?

Summit Entertainment

Clearly, these vampires have to be driving without a license because I see no possible way for them to realistically get one with their birth records, so why risk getting pulled over by a being a big old dumbo and just not sitting in the seat and wearing a seat belt?

14. Bella's response to Edward telling her he's designed to kill and wants to kill her is "I don't care"...Again, why did we think that was normal?

Summit Entertainment

Girl, this isn't a flaw that you can just overlook in a man!

15.  The paper cut scene where Edward yeets Bella into a wall...Yeah, what was that?

Summit Entertainment

Not only did Edward unnecessarily throw Bella into a wall, but he escalated the situation by throwing her into some glass vases no less!

16. Why couldn't Jacob wear a shirt in any of the movies?

Summit Entertainment

Was there not enough in the costuming budget for them to supply Taylor Lautner with a shirt?

17. And why, why, why did Bella tell Jacob to kiss her and then told Edward she didn't know what happened?

Summit Entertainment

I'll tell you what happened, you literally just made out with someone who's not your boyfriend while your actual boyfriend stood 20 feet away.

18. Why was Bella more excited to see Jacob at her wedding than she was walking down the aisle to see Edward?

Summit Entertainment

19. Just look at how happy she is to see him.

Summit Entertainment


19. And why was everyone all on board for a 17-year-old Bella to get married?

Summit Entertainment

My parents would never.

20. Did Edward have to be that extra and break the headboard/demolish the entire room?

Summit Entertainment

Think of the people who work in housekeeping who have to clean that up...

21. Can we also talk about the horrible CGI effects on Renesmee?

Summit Entertainment

In what galaxy does this look like a normal human child?

22. Jacob imprinting on Renesmee is a little much, right?

Summit Entertainment

Well, it's still weird!

23. And can we all agree that Renesmee is the worst name in the world?

Summit Entertainment

To be fair if it were a boy, Bella was going to name it EJ (Edward Jacob)...so maybe Edward should've held the reigns on the baby names.

24. Why do these movies even exist?


I wish I didn't return to my middle school years and re-watch these movies.

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.
