5 Feel-Good Movies For Bad Days

I always turn to my favorites when I’m feeling down.

5 Feel-Good Movies For Bad Days

Sometimes, you need to watch a good movie that you don’t have to think much about, and that will make you feel better by the time it’s over. No matter how hard you think about what movie you want to watch, you’re always stumped for some reason or another. Well, to help you out, here’s my top 5 movies I like to watch when I’m down (disclaimer: they’re all romances because I’m trash).

1. "While You Were Sleeping"

It’s not how most people think of Sandra Bullock nowadays, but this movie was excellent from start to finish. There’s humor, sentimental moments, and even a happy ending. What more could you want?

2. "Sleepless In Seattle"

No, not all of these movies are about sleeping. However, this film, starring Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks, is a beautiful movie in which the two characters (spoiler alert) do not even meet until the very end. It’s extremely quotable, and always leaves me with a refreshed feeling at the end.

3. "A Christmas Kiss"

This film is my own personal indulgence because it is absolutely awful. The ideas are there, but the writing and acting just don’t add up. Still, I always find myself falling for the story by the end, and even though I spend most of my watch time making fun of it, it does have its own shining moments.

4. "Beauty and the Beast"

Read: your favorite Disney film. "Beauty and the Beast" is my personal favorite, but if you’d rather sub in your favorite, feel free. And if you don’t have a favorite Disney film, consider this a wild card. Either way, this particular film has a very special place in my heart, and I feel better the instant the opening music begins.

5. "Waitress"

This is less of a romance than the others, and kind of deals with slightly heavier subject matter, but it is beautiful all the same. It’s even better if you add listening to the “Waitress” musical soundtrack to your to-do list.

In all, these films may not be your favorite. They may not make you feel 100% better. However, they never fail to lift my spirits, and having a list is always a good way to avoid that constant scrolling through Netflix to no avail.

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.
