Live from New York...It's Saturday Night Live

5 Reasons Why I Love SNL

Since 1975, "Saturday Night Live" has been an iconic, hilarious television show. For years now, I have enjoyed watching it, and there are several things that I especially like about the show.

1. The Cast

Each season, SNL provides an astounding cast to entertain its viewers. Many great comedians once began on SNL. The cast members always seem to have a great chemistry with one another that allows for the best possible show. From Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Will Ferrell, Eddie Murphy, and Adam Sandler to Rachel Dratch, Jane Curtin, Kenan Thompson, John Belushi, and many, many more.

2. The Hosts

Saturday Night Live never fails to have some of the best celebrities as host. Their opening dialogues are sure to be hits, and it is always great to see them act in the skits as well. Sometimes former cast members return to host, like Tina Fey and Amy Poehler did with the most recent Christmas special.

3. The Musical Guests

SNL also always has a great musical guest each week who performs a popular song. I especially enjoy when the musical guest acts in some skits, or when the host does double duty as the musical guest as well. One of my favorites is Justin Timberlake.

4. The Weekend Update

This segment is one I look forward to each week. I especially enjoy how the anchors will take current news events and add a humorous spin to them. And, I like when different actors come out for different parts, such as Daniel Radcliffe portraying Casey Anthony's dog, or Bill Hader's recurring role as Stefon.

5. The Skits

Of course, the real reason I watch the show is for the fantastic skits. SNL does not hesitate to push the limits when it comes to any of the topics, especially politics and powerful figures in society. Their political skits are some of my favorites. I also love when you can see the cast members beginning to lose character because the material is just that funny; it makes it even funnier.

Whether I'm watching it live on Saturday nights or watching old reruns that are played on television throughout the day, I can always count on SNL to provide quality entertainment and a good laugh.

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.
