I Just Watched 'Christmas Chronicles 2' And It Did NOT Disappoint

I don't know about y'all, but I loved the first "Christmas Chronicles." It was such a great movie, and this was a great way to end the film series.

(Also, side note, this may be Kurt Russell's final movie! He's been acting for about 60 years, so if that isn't enough reason to watch this, I don't know what is!)

Mrs. Claus, who was played by Goldie Hawn, who is also Kurt Russell's wife, is kickass. We LOVE to see women empowerment, and she sure does much more than just bake cookies.

In the film, she does a lot of the behind the scene things such as coming up with the design for Santa's Village.

The elves are also EVERYTHING. They are absolutely adorable. They're gremlin sized creatures that are extremely sweet, funny and helpful, until—I'll let you see for yourself, but emphasis on gremlin.

Honestly though? I would love having them around.

I absolutely loved the graphics of this movie! The only way I can explain them is they're so vibrant, realistic and high quality The camera angles were very cool and exciting. It created a magical experience honestly!

The part I loved the most about this movie pulled at my heartstrings. It was seeing how her father's death and moving on affect her. We got a brief glimpse of this in the first movie, but it was more about Teddy.

This movie is about Kate, aside from the bigger picture, and I'm here for it.

Kate's mom, Claire, has a new boyfriend, Bob, and they've been dating for 10 months but have known each other for much longer. Kate's very hurt by it and thinks her dad will be forgotten.

Similarly, but in a different light, we see a new character, Belsnickle who feels betrayed, hurt and angry, just like Kate.

As "evil" as Bel was during the film, his story was touching and truly shows that your loved ones will always be there for you. Just because something is different, it doesn't mean it gets lost forever, like Kate's dad's memory will live on, and Belsnickle can still be "good."

This theme carries the story and you learn why some of the characters act the way they do, and it was great seeing them evolve.

I don't know about you, but I love finding the moral of the story, and with this one, it embodies Christmas spirit way beyond gifts and decorations. It shows the importance of family, being thankful, togetherness and is very heartwarming.

I'm definitely not the only person holiday movies have an emotional effect on. They always make me feel a little sappy and my heart so full and put me way into the holiday spirit all around! "Christmas Chronicles 2" was no different.

After watching this movie, I had chills and a tear in my eye. Not because it's sad, but because it really brings the cheer, positivity and togetherness that we all need. I have no doubt that I'm going to watch this movie again before Christmas is over.

This movie is a holiday must-watch, and you should definitely add it to your annual holiday movie list.

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.
