Let's Talk About Infinity War

Honestly, I still haven't fully recovered.

*** Warning: MAJOR Spoilers Ahead ***

After two weeks of anxiously waiting, avoiding social media as much as possible, and finals week, I finally got to watch Marvel's Infinity War.

I was so excited walking into the theater, I was finally back with my family, in a theater I had spent so many hours in, watching a movie that was so highly anticipated. I ordered my popcorn, took my routine seat in the middle of my family, gave a thumbs up or down to the trailers, and patiently waited.

If only I knew what the next two hours and forty minutes would entail.

So, let's talk about Infinity War:

The beginning of the movie made a lot of sense. It picked up right where Thor: Ragnarok left off, as to be expected. However, I expected our dear friend Loki to stay evil to the end, and to help Thanos wipe out half of the universe. I was absolutely not expecting Loki to try and save Thor, which only made his untimely demise that much more heartbreaking.

Now, unfortunately, I made the mistake of falling asleep when I saw Dr. Strange in theaters, so I'm always a little confused whenever somebody talks to him/he does nearly anything. But I will say, it was extremely smart of his friend Wong (I had to Google this to figure out his name), to stay out of the impending war.

One of my favorite parts of the movie included the Thor + The Guardians dynamic. The Guardians are known for being kooky and funny, and adding Thor into the mix created an indescribable amount of humor.

However, this humor was short lived once Thanos and Gamora finally reunited. I definitely held my fair share of rage when he claimed to love his kidnapped daughter, and even more when he shed a tear for her after throwing her off a cliff.

The battle scenes in the movie were phenomenal, and seeing all of my favorite characters on one screen was amazing. But nothing, and I mean nothing, could have prepared me for the ending of the film. Here are some observations:

1. First of all, how on earth could our team of heroes allow Thanos to get ALL SIX Infinity Stones.

Like what??? Where was the effort there? How could this have happened?

2. Second, I'M SORRY SCARLET WITCH AND STAR LORD BUT THE FATE OF THE UNIVERSE IS A LITTLE MORE IMPORTANT THAN YOUR LOVE LIFES.

Not to be mean, but you can't mourn your loved ones if there is no world for you to mourn in???

3. Also, Thanos dude - what is your problem?

You have all of this power, why not just make more resources? OR, you could just make everybody do what you want them to do. Mind control anyone?!

4. Finally, who knew it was possible to cry so much for a character that lowkey annoyed you.

I love Tom Holland, but his Spiderman definitely got on my nerves. This didn't stop me from bawling my eyes out when he died though... he was so innocent.

I was in tears when the movie ended. Big, ugly, sniffling tears. I'm still recovering tbh.

That being said, the film was incredible, and even though I'm still not okay, I can't wait to see it again.

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.

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.
