'iCarly' Is Getting A Reboot, And Honestly, It's The First One I'm Actually Excited About

It seems like the world is changing for us, and it's going to be so, so wonderful.

5, 4, 3, 2 - "iCarly" is coming back!

Yes, you read that correctly - one of the greatest shows to come out of this generation's childhood is officially making its way back on-screen, and it's going to be so wonderful. Over the past couple of years, we've seen some of our favorite shows get rebooted - like "Boy Meets World," "Sabrina the Teenage Witch," and "Charmed."

And I think we can all agree they were not great... at all. My excitement for reboots nowadays is virtually nonexistent, because somehow, bringing in new actors/actresses and completely changing the storyline of my favorite childhood show is just not appealing anymore. If it ever was.

But the "iCarly" reboot is changing the game.

"iCarly" is set to premiere in 2021 on Paramount+, yet another new streaming service for us to buy into. But the best part is that Miranda Cosgrove, Nathan Kress, and Jerry Trainor, who played Carly, Freddie, and Spencer respectively, have all signed on for the show! AND, it will be produced by none other than the original brains behind the witty childhood show - Nickelodeon Studios.

Now, I think we can all agree that the only way this can truly be the best reboot to come out of the past few years is if we see the return of Jennette McCurdy, who played Sam during the original six-season run.

However, the possibilities of her being a series regular are slim. Just after the reboot announcement took the Internet by storm without mention of her name, Jennette took to her Instagram to announce season 2 of her podcast. While this is a bit of a disappointment for many "iCarly" fans, it doesn't mean it's a definite no, and it definitely doesn't mean she won't be making appearances here and there throughout the show! I think if "iCarly" taught us anything, it's to "see the brighter side of any situation" and that's exactly what I plan to do with this reboot.

I'm excited to see the old cast back together again, but I'm especially pumped to see what they do with their characters all these years later. While "iCarly" was funny then and still is now, it was also filled with important lessons.

It taught us optimism; it taught us risk-taking and courage; it taught us loyalty.

For me, one of the most poignant parts of the show is that Carly's brother Spencer, despite all his flaws, takes care of her and raises her through the most pivotal years of her life. Maybe the show isn't meant to be that deep on the surface, but underneath the pranks and the laugh track are real lessons to be learned.

I think that's what really makes this reboot so exciting - we won't leave the show empty-handed just because we aren't kids anymore. The actors and actresses grew up and matured with us, and now they'll be able to incorporate their own life lessons into the show, making it a must-watch for us all in 2021.

So in the meantime, live life, breathe air, because I know somehow we're going to get to that release date, and it's going to be so wonderful!

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
