It's time you guys should know how it's done.

5 Things To Remember While Watching A Movie

Who said indulgence was just about ice-cream and bath-bomb baths? Coming from someone that views watching movies as a form of obtaining pure happiness, what else would it be?

When school is in session, I tend to appreciate the small things in life such as naps, doing nothing, and watching a good movie and/or a show. Because I am a film major, there isn't a better activity to do than to relax while studying how the storyline is being told through the shots.

There's just this one thing that grinds my gears. An audience that doesn't properly watch a movie right. Learning that there are so much time and effort that's put into a movie, I'm here to teach those annoying folk how to pay attention. Here's a list of common courtesy rules that everyone should adhere to...

1. Stop eating noisy foods!

Okay, so it's time to sit down and watch a movie. You're surrounded by a bunch of snacks but of course, someone brought a bag of chips to the room. Not a big deal until the bad guy is about to be revealed and instead of being pulled into the plot twist, you are suddenly distracted by the sound of the Lays bag being opened vigorously as they pretend to be low-key.

Then, there's the unsettling sound of someone smacking their lips as they suck the salt off their fingers. You then start to realize that the bad guy is actually not the one on the screen. STICK TO POPCORN AND SOUR PATCH KIDS.

2. Put your phone down!

I get it. I really do. You have to check to see if your boyfriend liked that bitch's picture again for the 5th time this month so you can text him that this is the last time it's going to happen. Forget about the movie that you claimed to have wanted to see it for a long time. That's fine, but maybe just look at the other screen instead so you can actually keep up with what's going on instead of pretending like you liked it when it's done?

3. Pee before you sit down!

I know you're going to give me the famous "but I didn't have to go before" again but let's be honest here, it's your fault you drank that much. You knew this would happen because it happens every damn time. Stop making me pause the movie for you and your bladder.

4. Stop asking dumb questions.

"Who's Voldemort?" First of all, let me just suggest to actually watch the movie. Your questions may or may not be answered.

5. Shut the hell up!

If I hear you make another comment while the characters are exchanging dialogue, I'm going to pause and rewind until you know to just stop. If you wanted to talk, it's not here. Save it for when the movie's over or during our MANY intermission breaks. No wonder why you're confused.

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.
