4 Questions I Had While Watching 'Degrassi: The Next Generation'

If you are a fan of the old Degrassi like me, when Jimmy was in a wheelchair and Emma was still a nerd, here are a few questions that you had while watching “Degrassi: The Next Generation."

1. What ever happened to Terri MacGregor?

Terri was a student at Degrassi, she was a plus size model, on the lacrosse team, and had body image issues. Throughout the seasons, she started dating a new student named Rick Murray. After the relationship with her boyfriend Rick became serious, it became abusive as well. Terri was eventually sent to the hospital due to serious injuries. The episodes that came after this event seemed to have forgotten about Terri completely. It had been rumored online, that after Terri was released from the hospital and then her mom made her transfer schools.

2. Why didn’t Jimmy Brooks ever return from Europe?

After Rick Murray was bullied, he went on a shooting spree and Jimmy Brooks was caught in the line of fire. This event caused Jimmy, the basketball star, to be wheelchair bound. He continually did therapy to bring back the feeling in his legs and to improve his “walking.” When this failed, him and a friend he met at therapy, heard about the testing of stem cells on humans in Europe. They had heard that these stem cells could bring back the feeling in their legs, so they left for Europe and never returned. Some conclusions from this were that, Jimmy was written out of the show because of his thriving rap career in real life.

3. Who was Heather Sinclair?

On almost every episode of Degrassi: The Next Generation, the character “Heather Sinclair” was brought up in conversation. But who was this mysterious, popular girl? All the characters seemed to have known her as the popular girl and the one not to mess with, but she was never actually seen in the show. No one ever played this character on the show; she was sort of like an imaginary character.

4. What ever happened to Spinner Mason’s little sister?

In the beginning of the first couple of season, Spinner Mason had a younger adopted sister named, Kendra Mason. She dated another character Toby and was on the lacrosse team. Kendra was not one of the major characters, which made it easier for viewers to forget about her. She was only seen in a few episodes throughout the shows career, but never had any major parts.

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.

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.
