Life Lessons Learned From Disney Channel Shows

While there are many statistics and arguments out there about the unnecessary and overwhelming amount of television that the younger generation watches, some of our most valuable life lessons come from growing up watching Disney Channel.

Lizzie McGuire: "Best friends are forever"

We all grew up wanting friends like Gordo and Miranda. Well, there is a reason for that. Whatever problems were facing these characters, they stuck together and worked as a team. No relationship will come along without flaws, but working through them is what these three musketeers taught us is worth it.

Hannah Montana: "Life is all about finding balance"

While most of us aren't balancing being a pop star and a normal teen, we do have a lot on our plates. It is important to maintain relationships, while also doing what is best for you. Hannah Montana balanced going to school, having great friends, having a boyfriend, and singing on stage every weekend. So when we're all overwhelmed with everything we have to get done this week, we need to remember to find that balance.

That's so Raven: "Let it go"

Raven was able to see the future and often found herself getting caught up in her visions. She would become obsessed with something happening just as she saw it. We all plan for things to turn out a certain way, and sometimes they just don't. It is hard when your final product isn't what you were expecting, but Raven taught us that instead of being so narrow-minded, we should just let things play out.

Wizards of Waverly Place: "Family is everything"

Alex Russo was always making fun of her brother Justin, or picking a fight with her mom. However, at the end of the day, her family was always there to save her. Whatever trouble you find yourself in, whether or not you believe it, your family will be there.

Even Stevens: "There are all kinds of people in the world"

The Stevens family is made up of all different personalities. Louis is arguably insane, Ren comes off as perfect, and Donnie is just a ditz. However, put them altogether and something beautiful (or beautifully dysfunctional) is bound to happen. Just because someone might not have the same color skin as you or interested in the same subjects you are does not mean that your ability to work together or even be friends should be affected.

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.
