A Thank You Letter to My Favorite Childhood TV Series

"When we had to survive on our own, we grew up very fast."

A Thank You Letter to My Favorite Childhood TV Series

When I was four, I had so many shows I loved. I started every day watching The Fairly OddParents, ate lunch with my mother watching Disney’s House of Mouse, and returned to my Powerpuff Girl themed room every night.

While I loved all of those shows, one series I watched as a child has stuck with me all these years. We all have that one series we remember vividly; that one series that makes us feel good when we watch it; that one series we get hit by wave after wave of nostalgia about.

And with the English dub of the new movies coming out September 15th, it's time to rehash some of the lessons I've learned from my favorite childhood series.

As a college student, I have so much I have to thank Digimon for.

Thank you for teaching me what friendship really is.

Thank you for teaching me how important it is to protect those I care about.

Thank you for teaching me how to cope with grief and death.

Thank you for teaching me the importance of family.

Thank you for teaching me to value the moments when I have decent food.

Thank you for teaching me little things can pack big punches.

Thank you for teaching me to have some fun even when things look bleak.

Thank you for teaching me that people are more important than hobbies.

Thank you for teaching me that sometimes you have to disagree to build a stronger relationship.

Thank you for teaching me that it’s okay to grow up.

BONUS: Thanks for teaching me that you can ignore the epilogue.

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.
