3 Things To Look Forward To This November

3 Things To Look Forward To This November

Three musts for the upcoming month.

It seemed impossible, but we're actually facing November, which means studying hard for midterms and start thinking about finals, if your school has a quarter system. And then registration for the next quarter.

It means that Christmas is in less than ten weeks so we may want to start thinking about what to buy or create as a present for our loved ones.

Feeling any anxiety yet? No worries, to help you navigate through the endless list of things to do, I suggest keeping in mind three things that are gonna make our November great again (no, I'm not taking sides politically, just pointing out at another thing that is gonna scare us: less than two weeks from the day of the election. Just be sure to vote).

3. Doctor Strange

Benedict Cumberbatch in a Marvel movie, what would you want more?

It's scheduled to come out on the 4th of November and it's one of the most talked about movies of the years. The posters look catchy and it seems like a Doctor Who related kind of story, so count me in.

All I ask now is a temporary cross over with Iron Man and a random character who says ironically "Well done,Sherlock!" just to have Benedict Cumberbatch and Robert Downey Junior look at the camera very confused #pleasemakethathappen.

2. Gilmore Girls: One Year In The Life

On the 25th of November four new episode (each one set in a different season) will bring Lorelai and Rory back after a way too long hiatus. Netflix is releasing the episodes and everyone is just so excited to see what is going to happen between Luke and Lorelai and, especially, who Rory is going to choose to be the love of her life.

Are you #TeamDean, #TeamJess or #TeamLogan?

Well, I've picked my side (I'll never get over my crush for Milo Ventimiglia).

1. Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them

Starring the exceptional Eddie Redmayne (who won an Oscar for "The Theory of Everything" in which he interpreted the mathematician Steven Hawking) is the first of a five movie saga scheduled to come out in the next couple of years.

We are brought back into the magic world of Harry Potter with Newt Scamander, a British wizard just arrived in New York.

The movie, like the last couple of Harry Potter, is directed by David Yates and produced by J.K. Rowling, among others.

If you have grown up with this saga like me, just by hearing the theme song you are already crying: the appointment is for the 18th of November.

I think these are pretty good reasons to survive midterms and college stress, aren't they?

5 Perks Of Having A Long-Distance Best Friend

The best kind of long-distance relationship.

Sometimes, people get annoyed when girls refer to multiple people as their "best friend," but they don't understand. We have different types of best friends. There's the going out together best friend, the see each other everyday best friend and the constant, low maintenance best friend.

While I'm lucky enough to have two out of the three at the same school as me, my "low maintenance" best friend goes to college six hours from Baton Rouge.

This type of friend is special because no matter how long you go without talking or seeing each other, you're always insanely close. Even though I miss her daily, having a long-distance best friend has its perks. Here are just a few of them...

1. Getting to see each other is a special event.

Sometimes when you see someone all the time, you take that person and their friendship for granted. When you don't get to see one of your favorite people very often, the times when you're together are truly appreciated.

2. You always have someone to give unbiased advice.

This person knows you best, but they probably don't know the people you're telling them about, so they can give you better advice than anyone else.

3. You always have someone to text and FaceTime.

While there may be hundreds of miles between you, they're also just a phone call away. You know they'll always be there for you even when they can't physically be there.

4. You can plan fun trips to visit each other.

When you can visit each other, you get to meet the people you've heard so much about and experience all the places they love. You get to have your own college experience and, sometimes, theirs, too.

5. You know they will always be a part of your life.

If you can survive going to school in different states, you've both proven that your friendship will last forever. You both care enough to make time for the other in the midst of exams, social events, and homework.

The long-distance best friend is a forever friend. While I wish I could see mine more, I wouldn't trade her for anything.

8 Old Katelyn Tarver Songs You Probably Haven't Heard

None of her new songs will ever go as hard as "Chasing Echoes" and that's a fact.


Years ago, I found (through iTunes recommendations) a pretty cool female artist. Later found out she was on "Big Time Rush", and then I found out she had some new songs out. I decided to give her new songs a listen, and they're good. However, I prefer some of her older stuff, which sadly isn't on Spotify. Fortunately, YouTube exists, and I'm here to share the best ones.

1. "Wonderful Crazy"

This is just a fun, upbeat song for when you're having a good day. Would recommend playing in your car with the windows rolled down.

2. "Rain"

I have a very specific memory of a time when this song blessed my life, but for all intents and purposes, it is a beautiful and happy song.

3. "I'll Make It Real"

This is a beautiful song with a wonderful message about staying true to yourself. I used to listen to it on the way to school every day my senior year of high school.

4. "Something In Me"

Featured in the greatest show of all time, "South of Nowhere" season 1 episode 6. A very relatable breakup mood.

5. "Love Alone"

This is definitely the second-hardest-hitting song she's ever released. The fact that this is not on Spotify or even iTunes anymore is just not fair.

6. "Favorite Girl"

This one's cute and upbeat, a definite crush mood. Not on the same level as "Love Alone", but it's still underrated.

7. "Closer to My Heart"

Another cute love song. I'll tie it with "Everything" for cutest love song on her first album. Highly recommend both.

8. "Chasing Echoes"

Facts are facts and the facts are that Katelyn Tarver's new stuff could never go as hard as "Chasing Echoes". I can't even begin to explain how deeply these lyrics cut through me when I was fifteen. Even now, this song can take me all the way back. She is robbing us by not making this available on streaming services (or even to purchase). Katelyn, bring this song back, I am begging you.

Anyway, I'm still enjoying the new stuff and am excited to see what's next.
