"WandaVision" Is An Excellent Start To Phase Four

Before the pandemic, before the lockdowns and social distancing, the Marvel Cinematic Universe was well underway in developing its phase four projects.

"Black Widow" (2021) was on its way to release with many Disney+ shows like "The Falcon and the Winter Soldier" (2021) and "Hawkeye" (2021) all ready to release later that year. But life gets in the way and the MCU was hit. Executive delays brought the MCU to the halt just like the rest of the world. For months the question on every comic book fan's mind was when will the MCU begin again. And now, with light seemingly at the end of the tunnel, Disney has been slowly getting back on its feet, and what better way to showcase than none other than "WandaVision" (2021).

"WandaVision" (2021) surprisingly was a project not meant to kick off phase four.

Behind the Scenes planning, however, determined that it was the show closer to completion than "The Falcon and The Winter Soldier" and thus the final edits and special effects were added in order to complete the narrative. The series was hyped up in mystery, President of Marvel Studios Kevin Feige was hush-hush on the details for years, only teasing it as something fantastical and shrouded in mystery. Going into the series, I was not sure what to expect for I felt the lack of clarity negated all excitement I had for the film. However, by the first episode, I was intrigued.

The show follows Wanda Maximoff post "Avengers: Endgame" (2019), in seemingly an alternate reality. Viewers hopping back into the MCU will definitely be confused as to why characters like Vision are alive after meeting an untimely demise in "Avengers: Infinity War" (2018). However, over time the show unveils the curtain a little bit more and we the viewer get to see the truth that lies in the town of Westview.

Watching the show every week was something that brought a little bit of normalcy in this pandemic world.

Every week my friends and I would hop into discord and discuss the plot and our theories of where the season will go. "WandaVision" (2021) wants you to stay invested, watch each episode and see if you the viewer can uncover the truth of Wanda's reality. Each episode is centered around a different area of television that helps "WandaVision" (2021) stand out from other mind-reality-bending comic book shows that are on air right now. The show does a wonderful job of maintaining the mystery, covering the truth. One minute you will be mindlessly watching the episode and then an actor will break the character and talk directly to Wanda. Or other instances of scenes being cut mid recording and reshot. These small instances of fourth wall breaking made the internet go crazy. Being on WandaVision TikTok was a blast as seeing every week people discuss the episodes was truly a treat.

By the end of the season, I was extremely satisfied and it greatly set up the future of the MCU and phase four.

If you have not gotten Disney+ yet this show and "The Mandalorian" (2019-) are worth a watch! Wanda Maximoff has truly cemented herself as the center of phase four with this series and I cannot wait to see where she goes in Doctor Strange 2!

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.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
