11 Classic Movies That Are A Must For The New Year

If you haven't seen them, 2019 is your time. If you've watched them, it's time for round two (or three).

11 Classic Movies That Are A Must For The New Year

There are two types of people in our generation. Those who see a publish date before the 2000s and refuse to watch it, and those who take the chances and throw it on. I've seen my share of good and bad films both new and old, but most of my all-time favorites are movies from a few decades ago, and I highly recommend you try them out.

1. "Animal House" (1978)

When I saw this for the first time, I realized "Animal House" portrays college exactly how I imagined it growing up. It takes so many funny turns, and it's truly one of a kind.

2. "Halloween" (1978)

Scary movies have been in a downward spiral, especially the ones we've grown up with. Halloween is the classic slashing thriller, which will send chills down your spine the entire time.

3. "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" (1975) 

This cult movie is truly legendary. If you can find a theater that's doing a showing of it, you really need to go. Fans come from all over, dress the parts and know the words to every song. Even though the film itself is odd, the experience is like nothing else.

4. "Grease" (1978)

Well, duh. If you haven't seen this my heart is shattered until you fix your mistake.

5. "Saturday Night Fever" (1977) 

Another John Travolta classic, but less hyped up than some of his other classics, like "Grease." Still, it's a feel-good, music-filled drama that is a must see.

6. "When Harry Met Sally" (1989)

Somehow, I just saw this for the first time the other day. It's a romance filled, entertaining story about two polar opposite individuals who are trying to figure out what true love is. Funny and relatable.

7. "Sixteen Candles" (1984) 

Another well known one, but it's one of the only movies I can watch on repeat. Molly Ringwald brings us all back to our cringey teenage years, and you fall in love with the characters more and more throughout the movie.

8. "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" (1986) 

If you haven't seen this, do yourself a favor and cancel all plans and watch it immediately.

9. "The Shining" (1980)

Jack Nicholson will scare you straight in this classic psychological thriller. It gets better every time I watch it.

10. "Silence of the Lambs" (1991)

Anthony Hopkins and Johnathan Demme do not fail to impress, and keep you on the edge of your seat the entire film. It's one of the most intense movies I've ever seen, and no horror film of our time can compare.

11. "The Breakfast Club" (1985) 

I wasn't going to put this on here, because duh x100. One of the best feel good, diverse character movies that makes you fall in love with each character for such different reasons. One of the best of all time.

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.

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.
