I'm Getting By With A Little Help From The Belchers.

I'm Getting By With A Little Help From The Belchers.


When I was growing up, everyone always talked about how college is important. College is where you go to better your education. College is a privilege, not a right. And sure, that's all (probably) true. But really, all I've learned in college so far is that Bob's Burgers was right... About everything.

College is very different than high school for many reasons. First and foremost, college is the place that many people go to express themselves. This means that you should always have an open mind and be welcoming to new ideas. After all, everyone is into their own thing.

Another time college is very different than high school is in class. Yes, there's still a teacher, and yes, you still get homework, but in college, you're there because you want to be. You're paying to better your education. No one is making you do it, and you don't have to be there. So go to class, or don't go to class- but don't complain about the opportunities you've been given.

In my opinion, group projects suck. It's often difficult to communicate with team members and people don't always see eye to eye. However, I never listened to anyone who told me to use group projects to my advantage, and now I wish I had. I've gone all these years being miserable, and never realized that everyone likes different things, and has different things that they excel at. Group projects aren't always the terrors they're made out to be. Just because you don't want to be the one to type that ten page research paper, doesn't mean no one else wants to.

In college, you're going to learn many things. You'll learn that you need to find something to believe in, and stick with it.

You're going to learn that you need to follow your instincts.

You're going to learn that you will be poor and have to make do with what you've got.

And you're going to learn that there really is such thing as a take-home exam. You will learn about them, you will receive them, you will embrace them, and you will thank whatever God you believe in for them, for they are a gift.

But most importantly, you're going to learn that there is a huge difference between February vacation and spring break. Yes, they're both one week. And in that week, there is no school. There are no classes. There is no homework. (Okay, so you totally probably have some but we all know we're going to act like it doesn't exist until the very last possible second.) However, spring break exists because everyone knows that you wouldn't make it through the rest of the semester (and finals!) without it. It's like, science, or something.

So take time to plan out a stress-free, all (relaxation) inclusive vaca so you have some happy memories to think about while you're up until 2 am eating your feelings and studying your buns off.

Lil Yachty's 'Lil Boat 2' May Not Be Enough To Keep Him Afloat

Here's what you need to know about "Lil Boat 2."

On March 9, Lil Yachty dropped his newest album, “Lil Boat 2.” The album consists of 17 songs, most of which were probably better off not being on the album and seriously failed to impress me, despite its early success on iTunes.

In all of the reviews I have ever written, I normally organize it song-by-song, giving feedback to each track. This time, however, I think I can save all of us time on this article by just being completely honest about Lil Yachty’s “Lil Boat 2.”

Most of the songs from 1-10 on the tracklist are NOT worth listening to.

Other than those three, every other song from the top ten songs on the tracklist were absolute garbage.

The beats to the songs weren’t that bad but, overall, it just sounded like Lil Yachty and his features were WAY too high to be in the studio.

Yachty’s flows, bars and rhyme schemes were ALL weak throughout the entire album, and if it weren’t for the final six songs on “Lil Boat 2,” this review would be nothing but bashing Lil Yachty.

From the 12th track on the album, "MICKEY" (ft. Offset, Lil Baby) the album runs through much more smoothly, regardless of how basic those last couple of songs are.

I imagine Lil Yachty’s fanbase consists mostly of teenagers who eat Tide for Internet views and anybody who knows nothing about what a real rapper is.

Seriously. I cannot stress how elementary this album is. If you’re looking for new rap music to listen to, check out Tory Lanez’s album, “MEMORIES DON’T DIE,” or Logic’s “Bobby Tarantino II.”

Both of those albums are so much better than “Lil Boat 2” that they make Yachty look like an amateur — which he is.

Final Score: 5.8/10

Did Draco Malfoy Ever Get The Clout He Deserved?

Yes, he was literally the worst for a majority of the series. But does this one moment make up for it all?

The new trailer for the “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” series just dropped and I have a LOT of feelings. Mainly:

With the release of this new trailer, the only natural thing to do is to binge watch the "Harry Potter" series. Now, if you don’t know about "Harry Potter" series, I’m going to assume that you were born literally minutes ago. For those of you who do know what I’m talking about, let’s chat.

Throughout the series, we see some pretty rotten witches, wizards and muggles. The worst being Bellatrix LeStrange, in my opinion.

*Side note: Voldemort killed meticulously and with his own “reasoning” that supported his actions. Bellatrix killed for sport. No reason was necessary to support her choices. Regardless of who I thought was worse, it doesn’t change the fact that they were both 100% assholes.*

Throughout the movie, and even more so throughout the book, we are able to see slight character arcs for a majority of these lesser-evil villains, such as Petunia Dursley, Narcissa Malloy, Snape, and Draco Malfoy.

After Snape, Draco had one of the biggest character arcs in the series. He saved Harry and, ultimately, through his actions, gave Harry one last chance to defeat Voldemort. How? Well, Pottermore explains it best, but to put it simply, he refused to give Harry, Ron, and Hermione up to Bellatrix and the Snatchers.

This moment is so pivotal and apparent in the books, yet on screen, while it’s still a huge moment, it still gets downplayed. The weight of the moment isn’t truly felt and could be taken as more of a mistake on Malfoy’s part. That moment, if not understood correctly, could change many viewers' opinions about Draco's transformation from elitist, bigot, selfish snob to a (slightly) unknowingly ignorant, scared, defeated teen.

Damnit, J.K. Rowling, you’ve done it again. Even after all these years, somehow I still always seem to find something new.

Now let’s talk about how the new movie will allow the Ministry to apparate onto Hogwarts?!
