You know how there are always those certain movies you can watch anytime, anywhere, with anybody? No matter how many times you have seen it you enjoy it just as much as the first time you viewed it. I love movies like that. Movies you can just sit down with and enjoy when you just want something to make you smile. I’m sure everyone has a different list of those films for themselves but after really thinking about it I came up with 5 films that I find myself watching all the time and have seen too many times to count because put simply, they just make me happy. If you haven’t seen any of these check them out and maybe they can become part of your list too!

1. Back to the Future

The first Back to the Future film is one of my all-time favorite films as well. Everything about it is fantastic from the originality of the plot, the script, the setting, the characters, the music, and the iconic lines makes it an undeniable to view at least 100 times. The scene near the end of the film at the Enchantment Under the Sea dance is one of my favorite scenes in film history as well. The combination between the music (Earth Angel, which is an AMAZING song) and the climactic sequence where Marty’s existence depends on his mother and father kissing for the first time on the dance floor is incredible as George (his father) finally builds up the courage and kisses his mother (Lorraine) right as the climax of the song plays. It is one of the most epic scenes ever. So yeah, Back to the Future is FANTASTIC.

2. Babe


For some reason I feel like Babe is not a well enough known film. Even though it won a Golden Globe award it is an under looked children’s movie that is actually 100% not just for children at all. In fact, older audiences tend to appreciate this film so much more for the messages it offers and the absolutely beautiful way it is handled and put together. Babe is about a little pig who is won by a farmer at the County Fair and is told that he has a place in life like all pigs, to be raised for the slaughter. However, Babe believes that he is meant for more than that and wants to become a sheep dog instead. The film sounds pretty simply but when you get to the heart of it, it is one of the most touching and heartwarming films I have ever seen and will never stop watching it.

3. The Harry Potter Franchise

This probably goes for a lot of people but all of the Harry Potter films are ones that I have seen multiple times and could watch anywhere at any time because I just love them so much. They appear on TV all the time especially on ABC Family for their Harry Potter weekends and you better believe I tune in every single time. There is just something about the friendship, magic, great plots, good vs. evil, and fun scenes that make them films to view for year and years. I am begging you if you have never seen the Harry Potter films there is probably a whole missing inside of your soul that was meant to be filled by them so please just watch them.

4. Love Actually

Love Actually is a Christmas film but I will never in my life go a year without watching it. It is just one of those films that is there to make you smile and remember just how great film can make you feel. Simply put it is an absolutely adorable film that is extremely charming and can be categorized as the ultimate feel good film, in my opinion. With a stellar cast and the season of Christmas to bring out the themes of love and family, you aren’t going to get a greater film to watch for years and years then Love Actually.

5. 21 Jump Street

This film may be the one film I have seen the most times in my life. I don’t want to exaggerate too much but I honestly feel like I have seen this film bordering on 20 or more times. It never fails to make me laugh and the chemistry between Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum is absolutely undeniable. No matter where it is in the film on TV I watch it. I even have it on Blu-ray so when I just want to laugh I watch it. It is the ultimate comedy and I can tell is going to be a classic for so long. Nothing more to say, 21 Jump Street is just the best.

To The Girl Struggling With Her Body Image

It's not about the size of your jeans, but the size of your heart, soul, and spirit.

To the girl struggling with her body image,

You are more than the number on the scale. You are more than the number on your jeans and dresses. You are way more than the number of pounds you've gained or lost in whatever amount of time.

Weight is defined as the quantity of matter contained by a body or object. Weight does not define your self-worth, ambition or potential.

So many girls strive for validation through the various numbers associated with body image and it's really so sad seeing such beautiful, incredible women become discouraged over a few numbers that don't measure anything of true significance.

Yes, it is important to live a healthy lifestyle. Yes, it is important to take care of yourself. However, taking care of yourself includes your mental health as well. Neglecting either your mental or physical health will inflict problems on the other. It's very easy to get caught up in the idea that you're too heavy or too thin, which results in you possibly mistreating your body in some way.

Your body is your special, beautiful temple. It harbors all of your thoughts, feelings, characteristics, and ideas. Without it, you wouldn't be you. If you so wish to change it in a healthy way, then, by all means, go ahead. With that being said, don't make changes to impress or please someone else. You are the only person who is in charge of your body. No one else has the right to tell you whether or not your body is good enough. If you don't satisfy their standards, then you don't need that sort of negative influence in your life. That sort of manipulation and control is extremely unhealthy in its own regard.

Do not hold back on things you love or want to do because of how you interpret your body. You are enough. You are more than enough. You are more than your exterior. You are your inner being, your spirit. A smile and confidence are the most beautiful things you can wear.

It's not about the size of your jeans. It's about the size of your mind and heart. Embrace your body, observe and adore every curve, bone and stretch mark. Wear what makes you feel happy and comfortable in your own skin. Do your hair and makeup (or don't do either) to your heart's desire. Wear the crop top you've been eyeing up in that store window. Want a bikini body? Put a bikini on your body, simple.

So, as hard as it may seem sometimes, understand that the number on the scale doesn't measure the amount or significance of your contributions to this world. Just because that dress doesn't fit you like you had hoped doesn't mean that you're any less of a person.

Love your body, and your body will love you right back.

Junior Year Was A Learning Experience About Who I Am In Order To Be The Best Version Of Myself

This year was a changing experience.

11

I walked inside with a sure enthusiasm that this year would be better than last. I told myself that I wasn't gonna man the same mistakes and fall into the same traps that can left my grades in the dust for so many years. I said that this was the first year I was going to be stress free and without any problems. I also said this would be the year I would get in shape and stop eating cookies but the day that I'm writing it is national chocolate chip cookie day and I'm enjoying a nice and warm one.

This year is puts so much stress on friendships and the way that people interact with one another. Everyone is so on edge due to a lack of sleep and understanding that we all can tend to lash out at each other even though we wouldn't if we weren't in that state of consistent tiredness and sadness. Running on 4-5 hours of sleep really makes it difficult to understand any conflict that may occur. For example, on the day of the hardest Chemistry test of the year, I saw two of my friends lash out at each other in a moment of pure emotion. But almost as fast as the argument began, it was over and they had overcome the conflict between them. It really is a testament to your connection with the other person if you can make it through the whole year without running into any problems. In terms of personal experiences, each day was a challenge due to the little brain function I had, but I managed to not give into my issues. I was able to work around them and keep myself going.

Junior year was an experience that I'm going to keep with me forever because of the good and the bad. First off, I would like to thank my parents for never giving me that resolved look of contempt or happiness. This only motivated me or to work harder and I would like to say that I think I made you guys proud with how hard I worked this year. The next people I would like to thank are my friends, you guys are the actual goats. I know that many of you guys don't know how much I appreciate you and I would like to say that I really take it to heart when you guys help me with a certain problem, whether its academic, social, or none of the above.

As for the plot that most people were waiting now, the grades of the haunted Junior Year. I consider myself to be a very average student and I thought that my grades were going to be once again average by junior year standards. I though that they were going to fall so low that I would not be asian failing anymore. Surprisingly, this was the first year out of all my years in high school that my hard work paid off with consistent grades. That does not mean good but that does not mean bad. As a junior at Northview, I was amongst the 200 that took 4 AP classes and etc etc. Grades do not have to define you and getting a single bad grade will not kill you is the lesson I learned this year. That was the single most important idea that I could have taken from this year because it gave me a new perspective on my education. It was time I lived a little.
