Let's Have a Laugh

Anger and sadness cannot overcome laughter

Let's Have a Laugh

Ok before I begin, I want to tell you now, be you white, black, LGBTQ, Muslim, Athiest, anyone really who is scared, I will be by your side through this. I will be there when you call. I am scared too, but I am not going to back down from people who decide to threaten or bully you. I am with you no matter what. These might be dark times and it feels like we are divided more than ever, but united we will stand strong because I have hope in us.

Having said that, it is time to bring happiness back into this country. Little by little at least. I will do my best to find things that make people smile and/or laugh because we need it more than ever. I have said it before, united we stand, divided we fall. We can do this. The reason I am doing this is because recently I saw someone post Dumbledore's quote from "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban." He says, "Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light." So here are 11 videos, pictures, or gifs that will make you smile or laugh.

1. David Tennant as the 10th Doctor.

I am a Whovian, and of course out of the many pictures and videos I could have picked, I chose this because I cannot help but smile back.

2. Classic Nickelodeon Bumpers

Most of us remember a time growing up and watching classic shows on Nickelodeon. It was a simpler time. Good shows, but some memorable bumpers in between the shows. Always loved the barbershop one.

3. Kitty Cat Marching Band

Believe it or not, this one video got me through dead and finals week during first semester of senior year. It was a rough time for me, but I managed to get through from this video alone. SO CUTE!!!!

4. Yawning Puppies

There is something about puppies yawning that just make me smile with joy.

5. Cookie Monster

I will share my cookie with you. Sesame Street still teaching me lessons...... and I am 23.

6. 11 Drunk Guys

A few of us found this beauty freshman year of college. I rewatched it recently and it still has me crying. There are more videos they do, but make sure you watch this and part 2.

7. A Glorious Picture of Me

After "Let's Go to the Movies" dance project, a good friend of mine took this shot. That day, I became a legend. 15 minutes of fame, but totally worth it.

8. Hello Spiderman

This video has plagued me. Ask my quad mates last year. I start to wheeze. I hate this video, I do, but it still makes me laugh.

9. Ron Swanson

Ron Swanson deserves two....... enough said.

10. Puppy

Just look at that face. LOOK AT IT!!!!

11. Titanic Flute

Wait for the key change.

I hope that these put a smile on your face. In a time of sadness and anger, smiles and laughter will overcome, just like light does in the dark. Much love my friends.

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.
