10 Legally Blonde Quotes To Get You Though Your Law Degree

Elle Woods is an icon and a beacon of light in this cruel, cruel world. We need her words of wisdom to keep us going.

*Blasts "Legally Blonde the Musical" soundtrack as I write this*

1.  Warner:  "You got into Harvard Law?"    Elle: "What? Like, it's hard?"


A classic. Leave it to Elle to be so nonchalant over getting into HARVARD. I strive to be as classy as she is. A true queen.

2.  "I feel comfortable using legal jargon in everyday life. (catcalls) I object!"  -- Elle


Me, coming up for air from writing a case brief.

3.  "Paulette, I taught Bruiser to shop online, I think I can handle congress."  -- Elle


Give me this confidence. Also.... how?

Maybe you should switch your focus to Animal Behavior because, wow.

4.  "Do you think she woke up one morning and said: I think I'll go to law school today?" -- Professor Callahan


I mean, yes. But like, so did I. I feel so personally attacked.

5.  "Elle, we came to see your trial and look! There’s like a judge and everything… and jury people."  -- Serena


Me, anytime I observe actual court.

6.  "I once had to judge a tighty-whitey contest for Lambda Kappa Pi. Trust me, I can handle anything.  -- Elle


Yes queen. Don't worry, law doesn't even compare to judging a tighty-whitey contest.

7.  "If I’m going to be a partner in a law firm by the time I’m 30, I’m going to need a boyfriend who’s not such a bonehead.” -- Elle


You remember she said this in rebuttal to Warner's: "Elle, if I'm gonna be a senator by the time I'm 30, I need to marry a Jackie, not a Marilyn."

TAKE THAT WARNER. You actual piece of poop. You left little miss Elle Woods in the dust and then came crawling back to her when she showed. you. up. Boy, bye.

8.  "Except when I dress up as a frigid bitch, I try not to look so constipated."  -- Elle


Get. Her.

Gotta love a little girl drama. And after all the shade Vivian threw, I was so happy Elle snuck this backhanded comment so nonchalantly in there. It just shows you can be tolerant of crap but still demand respect-- which is a constant reminder that we all need to be like Elle.

9. "If you're going to let one stupid prick ruin your life, you're not the girl I thought you were."  -- Professor Stromwell


Peep Professor McGonagall-- I mean Professor Stromwell. There's going to be jerks all throughout your life and your career. Don't let them make you feel like less of a woman-- or less of a person-- for being your true, authentic self.

10.  "You must always have faith in people. And most importantly, you must always have faith in yourself."  -- Elle


Cue the tears.

Thank you, Elle. For helping me realize my worth-- not just as a woman in a male-dominated industry-- but as a person who deserves respect, and who can do anything she sets her mind to.

Reese Witherspoon, please reprise your roll in Legally Blonde 3 so Elle can keep showing women just how incredible they are. And because I selfishly want to see another Legally Blonde movie in my lifetime.

See ya in 2020, Elle!

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.
