The Power Couple Of John Mulaney And Annamarie Tendler Is The Best One Out There

If you haven't heard of John Mulaney yet, you're truly missing out. Dare I say, Mulaney is the comedian of this generation. Just last year, he won the Emmy for Outstanding Writer for a Variety Special, "John Mulaney: Kid Gorgeous at Radio City," which can be found on Netflix along with his two other comedy specials.

John Mulaney and his wife, Annamarie Tendler, kept their early dating life concealed from the public. However, in his first comedy premiere which was released in 2012, he joked about his Jewish girlfriend. On July 5, 2014, they got married and showed that they are a power couple, or "a couple consisting of two people who are each influential or successful in their own right," (Oxford Languages).

Even though Tendler isn't well known, she has many accomplishments that display her success. She started off working as a hairstylist and makeup artist in New York City. To show the world her talent, she worked with MTV Style and had many funny segments to add to their platform.

Tendler even wrote two books: "Pin It! 20 Fabulous Bobby Pin Hairstyles" and "The Daily Face: 25 Makeup Looks for Day, Night, and Everything In Between." Now, she has moved onto becoming a textile artist and shows her various creations on her instagram, @amtendler. On this platform, Tendler can frequently be seen working on elaborate weavings and lampshades.

While you are watching Mulaney's stand-ups, you realize that he mentions Tendler multiple times. In "New In Town," his first stand-up premiere, he jokes about his girlfriend being Jewish and how dating works, "And I really like dating Jewish women. They're great, because like I think a lot of problems people have in relationships are with communication because guys don't know what women are thinking. And with Jewish women, you do not have to guess what they are thinking… They will tell you."

In his second special, "The Comeback Kid," Mulaney talks more about his relationship with Tendler and how they tied the knot, "My wife is Jewish. She's a New York Jew. I did it! Now, I was raised Catholic. I don't know if you can tell that from the everything about me. My wife is Jewish, I grew up Catholic, so we got married by a friend. Being married by a friend is a beautiful ceremony that alienates both families' religions while confusing the elderly people at the wedding."

Finally, in Mulaney's most recent stand-up program, "Kid Gorgeous at Radio City," she is mentioned repeatedly in jokes, because they are approaching the celebration of their four year anniversary.

One of his best bits of the show is the scenario when he asked her if it was okay if he could continue joking about her on stage, "I said, "Do you mind if I still make fun of you on stage?" And my wife said, "Yeah, you can make fun of me. But just don't say that I'm a b**** and that you don't like me." I was like, "The bar is so much lower than I ever imagined. That's it?" Also, I wouldn't say that. What kind of show would that be?"

He goes on to explain that what she said is not true, "My wife is a b**** and I like her so much. She is a dynamite, five-foot, Jewish b**** and she's the best."

As his shows go on, Tendler's role in them increases each time. As a fan, you can tell their love is genuine by how he talks about her in his comedy specials and interviews. When he won his Emmy, Mulaney joked about how she didn't want to travel all the way to California just to watch him lose. He laughed and followed with, "And I still think you [Anna] made the right decision." She even made an appearance in Mulaney's episode of Jerry Seinfeld's "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee" after trusting him with the errand to find the perfect carpet for their house.

Just recently, Mulaney hosted SNL for the second time, revisiting where he was a sketch writer from 2008-2012. In the goodnight and credits, he wore a shirt with a picture of Tendler on it, which they both later posted about on their Instagrams. If that doesn't scream couple goals to you, something is wrong.

As you can tell, John Mulaney and Annamarie Tendler are a true power couple and are both incredibly successful in their own rights.

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.
