Eight Reasons To See Gone Girl

Eight Reasons To See Gone Girl

After waiting at the movie theater for two hours, I must say that Gone Girl was absolutely worth the wait. 

Having arrived 45 minutes before the 9:15 showing, I was informed that it was sold out. Not to be deterred, I got tickets for the 10:40 showing and found myself planted on a barstool for the next two hours. Critics would not stop raving about Gone Girl, and even though I refuse to see any movie without having read the book first, I broke down and saw it on opening night. I will try not to include any spoilers, but what I write may give away subtle hints so be aware! I have a love for movies, and if you do too, you won’t be disappointed.

Minkus: Minkus plays a cop. A cop. If you don’t know who Stuart Minkus is then you didn’t have a childhood and I feel sorry for you.

You will root for all the characters: At first when the story begins to unfold, you will really be on the fence about whose team you want to be on, because no character is one-hundred percent good. However, as the story goes on, you will realize how each character, big and small, begins to grow on you.

“It will leave you on the edge of your seat”: I am not a huge fan of movie clichés, but this one has never been more true. The whole time you are constantly wondering what is going to happen next. 

The “Blurred Lines” girl is in it: And yes, you see her boobs… 

Neil Patrick Harris: Neil Patrick Harris plays a somewhat small, yet supremely important role. Half the audience is terrified of his motives while the other half can’t figure out when the next time Barney Stinson is gonna come on. 

There is a romance component: For girls or even guys wanting a bit of a lovey kind of feel to it, there is some of that in there too. Also, it is enough to keep a girl interested, but not too much that tough guys will zone out. 

The Ending: It won’t make you feel fuzzy and warm inside, instead, it will leave you thinking about it for the rest of the night.

Both parties will be satisfied: At last, a movie that all genders can enjoy together!

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.

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.
