Grab your tissues, reality show lovers. It's a tear-jerking end of an amazing ride.

Reality Shows Are Coming To An End This Year, What A Way To Close Out The Decade

Snooki recently announced her departure from the reality show franchise, "Jersey Shore," and the spin-off, "Jersey Shore: Family Vacation." Needless to say, I'm not surprised.

Snooki has three beautiful children and is in a marriage with the love of her life. She traded in her party shoes for tennis shoes to keep up with her children and gave up the nightlife scene to become a businesswoman.

Snooki was the highlight of my childhood (along with Pauly D) and always made me laugh when a new episode came on.

On the December 8 episode of "Keeping Up With the Kardashians," the oldest sister Kourtney Kardashian and matriarch Kris Jenner caught hell from Khloe and Kim for not being so open with the cameras and sharing their lives with the world.

Kris has done her time in the spotlight and is the main reason that their family has a television show. Kourtney is in a different headspace from when she was in her 20s and 30s.

She wants to just enjoy life with her kids and be present without having cameras around her every second of the day. Kourtney made multiple points that her kids are her first priority and that should be acknowledged and respected by her other sisters. Khloe and Kim are forcing her mom and sister to hold onto a life that needs to be laid to rest.

The 2010s was the best time for reality shows and we saw them thrive and give birth to other shows and socialites.

Snooki's departure and Kourtney's feelings about her future on her family's show have sparked a conversation that is very important for entertainment and reality television watchers to participate in.

We've put our favorite stars on a pedestal so high that many have fallen. When they fall, they're frequently met with harsher criticism than average.

They open their homes to a world full of strangers and put themselves and their families at risk because they share their personal lives with the world.

This does not count as me saying, "Jersey Shore won't survive without Snooki" or "Kourtney Kardashian's feelings about not wanted to share every aspect of her life is the main reason that KUWTK went off the air."

Both shows could go on for a longer time, and so can all other reality shows like the "Real Housewives" franchise. Still, I just think that going into 2020, there won't be as much commotion and a fixation with these types of shows anymore.

We've watched these people go through some of the most heart-wrenching times in their lives and some of the most exciting times, but all good things must come to an end.

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.
