5 Things To Check Out On HBO Max

It seems like every major network has come out with its own streaming service. I feel like normally this would be overwhelming (and it still kind of is), but right now a lot of us are thankful for the option to binge our favorite shows from our couch. HBO has thrown themselves into the mix with HBO Max, their new streaming service that has almost everything. From Adult Swim shows to classic Cartoon Network shows to Turner Classic Movies, HBO Max has a lot to watch. They even have some new original series that I think are worth checking out. So take a look below at what I think are the best things to watch on HBO Max!

1. "The Not-Too-Late Show With Elmo"

"The Not-Too-Late Show With Elmo" is one of HBO's new originals on HBO Max. It features our favorite childhood best friend, Elmo, running his own late-night show before his parents put him to bed. It currently has three twenty-ish minute episodes featuring Jimmy Fallow, Kasey Musgraves, the Jonas Brothers, John Mulaney, and Lil Nas X. It's very cute, kind of entertaining, and definitely nostalgic. It's also a fun idea to have these great musicians singling classing Sesame Street and children's songs.

2. "Love Life" with Anna Kendrick

"Love Life" is yet another HBO Max original. And I'll admit, I haven't watched this show yet, but I literally love anything with Anna Kendrick in it. Even if the show itself is terrible in every conceivable way, I can practically guarantee that it will be worth watching because Anna Kendrick is hilarious. So watch it, it will probably be good!

3. The new "Looney Tunes Cartoons"

If you were/are a fan of the classic "Looney Tunes" shows, you're sure to love the new HBO Max original: "Looney Tunes Cartoons." This reboot/continuation of the old "Looney Tunes" show has all the classic characters you love in new and silly situations. The animation style has been updated a bit to look a tiny bit more cartoonish, but overall, it still has the classic style everyone recognizes. It's definitely a fun show to binge when you don't want to pay complete attention to the television.

4. All of the Ghibli films

One of the biggest draws for me to HBO Max is the fact that is has every Studio Ghibli film. Recently, the Ghibli films were added to Netflix everywhere but in the United States and now we know why! Personally, I own most of the Ghibli films on DVD or BluRay anyway, but isn't nice to have a more portable option at my fingertips. Plus it's nice to not have to get up from my couch cocoon to change a disk.

5. One of the Turner Classic Movies

If you're in the mood of a classic movie, HBO Max has many of the Turner Classic Movies including every version of "A Star Is Born." Forbes has already compiled a great list of classics movies to watch and I don't think I can do any better, so I recommend checking their list out here. There's plenty of other movies not listed on there, like "Little Shop of Horrors" and "Harold and Maude," but if you spend a few minutes digging around the TCM section you're bound to find something good.

Happy binging friends!

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.

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.
