9 Reasons Ferris Bueller Is The Best Ever

He grooves on floats, schemes, and quotes John Lennon. What more could you want?

9 Reasons Ferris Bueller Is The Best Ever
hello giggles

Ferris Bueller's Day Off is an iconic movie. Disagree? I'm sorry, you're wrong and you really need to reevaluate your life. I mean, it has humor, drama, a musical scene, and takes you on an emotional roller coaster throughout the film. Oh, and the pure genius behind Ferris's schemes? I'll repeat: iconic. But, the best part of the movie isn't the schemes or the friendship or the feels. It's Ferris himself. He's sweet, smart, a great friend, and all around great person. Everyone loves him (besides Mr. Ed Rooney perhaps). All in all, he's the shit. Here's 9 reasons why Ferris Bueller is the greatest ever.

1. He managed to sum up high school in a single sentence

Fun fact, this very quote was my senior year quote.

2. He had some pretty wise words of wisdom

I mean, come on. That's pretty great. And the fact he goes onto quote John Lennon? Even better.

3. He was a hacker before it was cool

And he did it on this dinosaur. I can barely work my Mac most days, so this is especially impressive.

4. Literally everyone liked him

The sports, the motor heads, geeks, sluts, bloods, watetoids, and dweebies to be exact.

5. He was a great friend to Cameron

Without Ferris, Cameron never would've had such a great day downtown, and he never would've been brave enough to stand up to his dad. So, really it was a win win when Ferris made him get out of bed.

6. And he was the boyfriend we all wished we had

He got her out of school, took her on the day of a lifetime, and asked to marry her. I mean, how can he get anymore perfect? Plus, that kiss in the museum.....

7. He served the ultimate burns

This line in itself was iconic. I mean, the sass level is off the charts and I absolutely love it.

8. The boy could groove

You can't watch this scene without 1. swooning and 2. getting up and singing Twist and Shout yourself. It's impossible, I dare you to try not to do at least one of them.

9. And finally, he told us all that anything was possible if you had enough nerve

I'm not going to lie. After I saw this movie the first time I was ready to play hooky for a week and go gallivanting around downtown Nashville. And it was all because of this line. Looking back, I really wish this would've been my senior quote instead.

Thank you, Ferris. You supplied us with an abundance of life lessons and quotes to live by, and taught us exactly how far was too far (hint: the limit does not exist). Keep groovin' on floats and staying clear of Mr. Rooney. I sure do hope you ended up graduating high school.

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.
