7 Movie Series To Binge Watch This Summer
Strategies in language

As can probably be inferred by any of you who have been reading my previous articles, I love television and movies. The best (or worst?) thing about movies nowadays is that they usually don't stop at one. So, for you all today, I have compiled a list of the best movie series to watch with your (hopefully) increased free time over the summer.

1. Harry Potter

Might as well start with the long ones because this group of movies has eight total. I love the "Harry Potter" movies almost as much as I love the "Harry Potter" books. They include A+ casting, generally good special effects, and a magical school of witchcraft and wizardry. Personally, I try to re-watch these movies every summer (or at least I have the past two summers and am planning on this summer). These are always movies I would recommend.

2. Star Wars

I would personally recommend that you watch these movies in the order that they were made, not the order in which they have been numbered (so IV, V, VI, I, II, III, VII and so on), but I guess if you want to watch them chronologically you can. Anyways, not matter what order they go in, they are a good watch and are totally worth the time.

3. National Treasure

Okay, I am in love with these movies. They are full of semi-accurate historical facts, felonies that the characters are not punished for, a sarcastic fellow, and Nicolas Cage. There are only two so far, but I am anxiously (aka 10 years) awaiting a third.

4. The Hunger Games

Again, just like "Harry Potter", I love these movies almost as much as the books. Jennifer Lawrence is a godsend and Josh Hutcherson is fantastic. Who doesn't love when teenagers are thrown into a death arena? There are four of these movies and they are all great and I would always recommend.

5. Bridget Jones

Yay! I've mentioned these before and I still love them, especially now that "Bridget Jones's Baby" has been added to Netflix. Renee Zellweger is adorable and hilarious in all three movies and these ultimate chick flicks are ones to enjoy all the time.

6. The Chronicles of Narnia

Okay sure, these are kids movies, but does that really matter? Answer to that is no. Three of these movies have been made and I doubt any more will be, or if they are they will be remakes. The first movie is the best thing ever (I mean, a wardrobe that transports you to a magical land? Yes, please), the second one is pretty good (a little annoying that humans have taken over Narnia, but I got over it), and the third is just fun to watch to see Lucy, Edmund, Susan, and Peter again (even if Susan and Peter are only in it for a minute).

7. Marvel Movies

These aren't really a set series of movies, but watching them in order is always something I've wanted to do. For a fun mix and a way to get the entire story would be to insert "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D" into this mix. A good order to watch these would be: Spider-Man, Spider-Man 2, Fantastic Four (2005), Spider-Man 3, Iron Man, Iron Man 2, The Incredible Hulk, Captain America, Thor, The Avengers, Iron Man 3, Shield episodes 1.1-1.7, Thor: A Dark World, Shield episodes, 1.8-1.16, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Shield 1.17-1.22, Guardians of the Galaxy, Shield 2.1-2.19, The Avengers: Age of Ultron, Ant-Man, Shield 2.20-3.19, Captain America: Civil War, Shield 3.20-4.6, Doctor Strange, Shield 4.7-4.22, Guardians of the Galaxy V. II, and when Spider-Man: Homecoming comes out, add that to the list. (Insert anywhere: The Amazing Spider-Man 1&2, Jessica Jones, Daredevil, and Luke Cage).

Alrighty, I have given you all a challenge and I hope you decide to take it. Good luck my fellow movie lovers.

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.
