5 Things To Expect From 'Fuller House'

Our prayers have been answered! On Friday, Netflix released all thirteen episodes of the new Netflix original series,Fuller House,” a follow-up to everyone's favorite nostalgic show,Full House,” which ran from 1987 to 1995. We all rememberFull House.” It was full of life lessons, cutesy romance and all the trials and tribulations of a crazy but tight-knit family. However, despite all the cheesiness, we've probably all watched every episode ofFull House.The household was led by father Danny Tanner, trying to keep everything together after his wife died, in order to raise his three daughters, D.J., Stephanie and Michelle. With the help of his best friends, Jesse and Joey, he raised the kids in a wholesome household.

Viewers quickly came to love the show and its wacky characters.Fuller Housetakes place 29 years later, and Danny's children are all grown up. The show lays the nostalgia on thick. The first episode features all the old cast, but for the most part, the show focuses on D.J. Fuller, whose husband just passed away and who has three sons (sound familiar?) When it becomes clear that she is struggling with all the perils that come with being a single mother, Stephanie, now a famous DJ (who ironically calls herself DJ Tanner) and her best friend, the wacky but lovable Kimmy Gibbler, (now a famous party planner with a child of her own) move into the old Tanner house with her to help her raise her children, Max, Jackson and Tommy Fuller. (Hence the name of the show) Here's what one could expect to see if they watch "Fuller House:"

1. The old theme song, reinvented

Sure, it's sung by Carly Ray Jepsen, so it's a little more poppy and slightly Disney Channel-ish, but it brings back all the feels by showing the old pictures from "Full House" side by side with the new. Overall, it's pretty cool.

2. All the old catchphrases are used

You probably remember all the funny and cheesy catchphrases used in "Full House." Almost every character had one. For Uncle Joey it was:

For Stephanie:

Michelle, played by the Olsen twins, is not in "Fuller House," and in the show is said to be off in New York building her fashion empire. But she still gets a tribute to her old catchphrase in the form of a phone call from Kimmy, D.J. and Stephanie:

3. Uncle Jesse, played by John Stamos, is still a heartthrob:

Does the man never age?

4. The nostalgia is real:

In an episode of "Full House," Michelle will not stop crying so Danny, Jesse and Joey sing the "Flintstones" theme song to calm her down. In the first episode of "Fuller House," the same thing happens with baby Tommy, and the two scenes were shown side by side on the screen. It was very cute and brought back fond memories of "Full House."

5. Watching "Fuller House" feels like being reunited with family again:

Just seeing the old gang together will bring a smile to your face. No matter how cheesy it will get at times, watching "Fuller House" feels like coming home after a long time away. You will pick up right where you left off.

All episodes of season one are now airing on Netflix!

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.

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
