5 Reasons You Need To See "The Fundamentals Of Caring"

There are many movies available on Netflix right now. From stand up to horror, it''s obvious that the genres on Netflix are almost endless. Out of all of these movies, there is one that everyone needs to see. Here is a list of reasons why you need to watch "The Fundamentals of Caring" on Netflix right now!

1. It's funny

"Bite of the James! Hm? Isn't that what they say in your country? Little bite of the James shall we!"

"The Fundamentals of Caring" is one of the funniest movies I have seen in a very long time. Trevor (Craig Roberts), the wise cracking British teen with cerebral palsy, and Ben (Paul Rudd), the smart ass caregiver, are a lovable duo that had me cracking up throughout the movie. At first, I was uncomfortable with the both of them making jokes about Trevor's condition, but I soon began to appreciate the dark humor.

2. It encourages adventure

Dot: Trev, what would you do in that situation?

Trevor: Oh, I'd most likely shit myself.

Ben: And I most likely would have to clean it up.

For fun, Trevor will sit in front of the TV all day watching a travel TV show, marking down all the places he wants to visit, even though he knows that if he leaves his house and goes off schedule it could be the end of him. Ben decides he will bring Trevor to all these places even if that means risking Trevor's life. The movie takes you on this incredible road trip with the two of them to the world's largest cow and hole, all the while picking up random people at a diner and on the side of the road.

3. Peaches

One word says it all! In my opinion, Peaches (Megan Ferguson) is the most adorable character in the whole movie! We meet Peaches as she is stranded on the side of the road on her way to visit her mom before she gives birth. Once you get past her mysterious stare, you will come to love her awkwardness, and accept that she's just a sweetheart that cares about everyone.

4. Who doesn't love Selina Gomez and Pauot only that but, Dot is actually kind of a bad ass in the movie. She runs away from her dad at home and for some reason thinks it's okay to go on a road trip with two random guys. Paul Rudd, behind all the jokes he makes, sadly has a tragic back story in this film giving you more respect for his character.

5. This ones a tear jerker

Like I said in my last reason, Paul Rudd's character, Ben, has a tragic back story in the film leaving you in tears when the full story is finally revealed. Not only that but, the movie constantly reminds you about Trevor's condition and that any moment something could go terrible wrong. This movie is a reminder that life is short and that you should go out and live it without letting anything stop you, whether it be your dad, a broken down car, a wheel chair, or a rough past.

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.

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.
