The 4 Best Movies to watch during monsoon season

Monsoon season in Tucson, Arizona is quickly approaching. Now, if your from Tucson or staying here for the summer, this means 100 degree heat with heavy rainstorms that flood nearly every street on campus. But it's also the perfect time to cuddle up with your significant other, best friends, or your softest blanket and watch movies and eat snacks while its pouring outside. I know that staying in and watching movies or playing video games and listening to the rain outside is one of my favorite things to do during monsoon season (other than playing in the rain of course).

1. "Chernobly Diaries"

"Have you heard of extreme tourism"?

If you are looking for a creepy movie to watch while its absolutely pouring outside, making the movie even a little scarier, then Chernobyl Diaries is a must watch. The movie is about "six tourists who hire an extreme tour guide who takes them to the abandoned city Pripyat, the former home to the workers of the Chernobyl nuclear reactor", and everything takes a turn for the worse (IMDB). This movie is my favorite horror movie because I am so interested in the actual Chernobyl disaster that happened in 1986, and this incorporates both the cinematic, theatrical part of movies with actual history. Also, ignore the Rotten Tomatoes score! This movie is amazing, and you should definitely give it a chance.

2. "Finding Nemo"

"Just keep swimming"!

Not only is Finding Nemo an amazing movie for every occasion, it is even better during rainy days. It's the perfect movie to cuddle up with your favorite blanket, and eat candy and popcorn like you're a little kid again at the theaters. Not to mention the movie takes place underwater, which is basically the University of Arizona after monsoon storms hit! I'm sure that 80% of this population has already seen Finding Nemo, but I bet the same 80% of people could watch the movie over and over again!

3. "Dirty Dancing"

"Nobody puts baby in a corner".

An absolute classic, and massive box office hit! This romantic drama movie is about a girl having a romantic relationship with her dance instructor during her family vacation, which not everyone approves of. Also, did I mention that the dance instructor is the 80's cutie Patrick Swayze?! This movie is guaranteed to get you in your feels (especially with the rain falling on your window), and really allows the audience to connect with the cast members. This movie is also known for its iconic dance move where Baby runs and jumps into Patrick Swayze's arms, and he hold her high above his head. Everyone as old as your grandparents and as young as your siblings are guaranteed to enjoy this movie!

4. "White Chicks"

"Making my way downtown. Walking fast. Faces passed. And I'm home bound".

This is probably my all time favorite comedy movie. The first time I saw this movie was the year it came out (2004), and I was 6 years old! I have probably seen this movie literally 30 times; I really believe that I will never get tired of this movie! The Wayans brothers and Terry Crews are hilarious in this movie, and will have you laughing the entire time. This movie is perfect if you're feeling down in the dumps because of the rainy weather because it will cheer you up as soon as it starts.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
