5 Movie Sequels That Were Better Than The First

I know your favorite movie is a sequel.

5 Movie Sequels That Were Better Than The First
Princess Diaries 2

Think about your favorite movies. Are any of them sequels? Probably. To be honest, sometimes the sequels are terrible. Despite that, there is the occasional outlier. The sequel that brings an even better storyline than the first. Who knows what makes these second movies so special, the possibilities are endless. Here are just a few of those remarkable sequels.i

1. "Princess Diaries 2"

Now, of course, the first "Princess Diaries" is absolutely enchanting, but there is just something about "Princess Diaries 2" that makes it unusually special. Maybe it is the magical atmosphere of Genovia or the thrill of mattress surfing. Not to mention the outstanding job by the beloved Julie Andrews and the hilarious Anne Hathaway. This movie gives me hope that I, too, will become a princess. Who is excited for "Princess Diaries 3"?

2. "Cheaper By The Dozen 2"

Again, the original "Cheaper By The Dozen" definitely deserves some recognition, but "Cheaper By The Dozen 2" brings a happy, family friendly atmosphere. Whether it sounds like a dream or a nightmare, spending the summer in an old, creaky lake house will certainly be hilarious. This movie has its ups and downs, and without a doubt teaches a good lesson. Family is important.

3. "High School Musical 2"

I know, this might be a shock. The original "High School Musical" is a classic. Everything about it is wonderful, but "High School Musical 2" brings a whole new idea to the table. It provides a glimpse of the East High students outside of the school's four walls. The tunes are catchy, and this movie does include some drama. Well, as dramatic as Disney Channel can get. Not to mention, Zac Efron actually sings in this version. No offense Drew Seeley, but we had been waiting for Zac's beautiful voice.

4. "22 Jump Street"

Sun's out, guns out. "22 Jump Street" is even more hilarious than the first. Sending Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum to college was a brilliant idea. This combination cannot be stopped. I never thought "21 Jump Street" could be beat, but this did it. Get ready to laugh like you have never laughed before.

5. "Camp Rock 2"

"Camp Rock 2" "introduces" Connect 3 and Mitchie in a whole new way. They are back, and they are "Camp Rock" counselors. Of course, the original "Camp Rock" was the foundation for the success of this sequel. The popularity of the Jonas Brothers mixed with the rising fame of Demi Lovato made for the perfect pre-teen/ teen movie. The more mature nature of the characters really made this sequel a good one. Camp Rock on three, 1...2...3... Camp Rock!

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.
