Pixar's 'Kitbull' Is An Animated Short Filled With Heartfelt Lessons

After the overwhelming hype from "Endgame," most, if not all, of the subsequent movies failed to meet the increased expectations of fans. You may be one of these many fans, wondering when the next big hit movie will come out.

Instead of forcing yourself into this cyclical state of boredom, look no further than "Kitbull," an animated short film by Pixar. No, it is nowhere near the same length as "Endgame," nor does it have the same amount of action-packed scenes. However, the allure of this short film are the arrays of emotions you will go through. You may have thought the "I love you 3000" messages and the death of a particular beloved Marvel figure (not naming who for the few that still haven't watched the movie yet) made you cry, but "Kitbull" will pull your heart's strings like you never knew before.

Obviously, I am not here to spoil the nine-minute clip. What I will go through here is mention a two of the biggest messages that Pixar attempts to address with "Kitbull."

Don't judge a book by its cover

This message may be one of the biggest cliches that you likely heard a million times before in your life. However, we all know that this message does not tangibly play itself out in reality. Whether it be due to that individual's past or a reputation that lingers around people with a certain trait, much of society is quick to judge. Pixar does a fantastic job portraying the true personality that lies behind one's mere physical or peripheral view. After realizing this fact, the protagonist goes on to break this barrier and kindle a relationship without any prejudices.

No type of abuse is accepted

Pixar also focuses heavily on discouraging people against any form of abuse. You're bound to have "your feels be hit hard" once you see the struggles that the victim goes through. Being something that many of us can relate to a personal level, the next key step that we need to implement is to do whatever we can to stop preventable abuse from other people, which is exactly what the protagonist does. Being mere bystanders is not okay. We "bystanders" need to change to activists and become the initiators of compassion.

So please, take nine minutes out of your day to watch what may be one of the best short animated films you have watched. Don't forget some tissues while you're watching!

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.

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.
