'Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air' Is Getting A Reboot So We Will Just Chill Out, Max, And Relax Until It's Here

90s kids, rejoice because this is the best thing 2020 has given us.

'Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air' Is Getting A Reboot So We Will Just Chill Out, Max, And Relax Until It's Here

Now, this is a story all about how, "Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" is getting a reboot, and every '90s kid is currently screaming. (Yes, you heard me correctly.)

After a fan-made video went viral in 2019, Will Smith and Morgan Cooper, the creator of the viral video, are teaming up to create a reboot of the beloved series. While some fans noticed differences in some of the characters' traits and mannerisms, the premise is the same: Will is getting into trouble in Philadelphia and sent to live in the upscale Los Angeles area with his aunt and uncle.


The tone, though, is much darker as Will found himself in LA after getting caught with a gun on a basketball court, contrary to the lighthearted rap we heard at the start of each episode in the '90s.

I have to admit: This is still pretty exciting. While some may critique the harsher or darker tone to the show, I think it could actually be a good thing. We all love the original show, but we're also not kids anymore. Perhaps, a reboot that reframes our beloved show in a more grown-up way will be able to reach us the same way the lighthearted version did in the '90s.

It's also important for the media to show the tough parts of life in realistic ways, and by making the tone of the show a touch darker, I think it speaks to some of the harsh realities that people are facing across America today. This show could be more than just a nostalgic feel-good moment for the fans.

The '90s were a great time to be alive in general, but "Fresh Prince" was definitely one of the upsides to the decade... like a huge upside. Considering how 2020 has started, this may be the turnaround we need.

Oh, and PS: "Saved By The Bell" also just announced a reboot. Double win for '90s kids.

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.
