5 Times The Proud Family Taught Us Valuable Life Lessons

Shout out to Disney for such an underrated hit. Here are some things that the Proud Family left us with.

5 Times The Proud Family Taught Us Valuable Life Lessons
Proud Kids

Let's start with season 1. Remember episode 14: Love Thy Neighbor, when LaCienega and her family's house caught on fire, so they had to move in with Penny's family for a while? Well yeah, we all hated LaCienega's attitude and she still acted foul towards Penny, but the lesson from this episode definitely taught me to put differences aside and to be there for someone in their time of need although they may treat you bad.

Moving on, season 2 episode 4 also known as Poetic Justice had me in my feels. At the poetry sessions, Penny would go up there and kill it and before they knew it, Wizard Kelly hosted a poetry competition so everyone decided to speak up there. Dijonay said she wan't too good at poetry (which she wasn't) but Penny took some time out to get her to start writing her own things and to help her out. Little did she know that with emotion and raw talent, her best friend would do a better job than her. Penny then assumed Dijonay was a liar because she did so well, but in the end when they made up she admitted that she just wasn't expecting her to be better than her. This was wrong on Penny's part, so sometimes you just have to own up to your wrong doings. Not everyone is out to get you or trip you up, especially no one who you call a true friend.

Ah! Episode 8 of season 1 was one to remember. Forbidden Date. One day Penny and her girls went to an amusement park and her dad didn't want her to speak to any boys whatsoever. She convinced her dad that it would just be a day for her and her girls to go out and have fun, but the original plans were back in full effect. There were 4 boys that LaCienega spotted and each girl chose who would be her date. Penny got left with the guy who didn't look like the rest of his friends because he was bigger than them. LaCienega, Dijonay, and Zoey all went off making fat jokes about Penny's date and enjoyed their day with guys who left them hanging in the end, but after Penny spent time with him and got to know who he was, she was glad that they ended up being dates. A message: Don't assume that just because someone isn't the ideal shape or size that they won't be an amazing individual.

Number four! Can we talk about The Altos? This was episode 19 of season 1 where Sticky's parents were getting a divorce and he took out his emotions by switching up on his friends and hanging out with troublesome kids who stole, lied, and tried to get away with the things they did. Not cool at all. What I liked about this one was that the writers took the time to create ideas that related to different kids out there and Sticky got his lesson in the end which can relate to a lot of us. Just because you're going through something doesn't mean you have to take it out on those around you who love and care about you. They're there for you for a reason and will have your back through whatever!

Lastly, lesson number 5 of many. In episode 11 of season 2, we got to see how many times Oscar failed when it came to Wizard Kelly's famous half court shot competition. Once again he hosted the competition and a lucky person at the game got to choose between 3 basketball players and a friend or family member to do the shot for them and if things went well then they'd be looking at a ton of money (Used for only Wizard Kelly enterprises of course) Well, Penny was the winner who got to choose who she wanted to complete the half court shot for her and although Oscar was the biggest fail when it came to the history of the competition, she let him make the shot for her. Everyone and I mean everyone doubted Oscar, but he made the shot! Clearly, Disney let us know that we're supposed to dust ourselves off and try again. No matter how many people won't have faith in you, someone will and even if you can't get just one person to believe in you, believing in yourself is more than enough.

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

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.
