Logan, Our Teacher.

What He Means To Us.

Logan, Our Teacher.
Screen Rant

I don't know how to start this one. I hope you help me out, so here I go. There are many fictitious men that I love. There is one in particular that is worthy of the attention of adults/kids everywhere. He has luscious short black hair, terrible sideburns, and a rated-R attitude that sometimes gets him in trouble with Professor X. He goes by many names: Wolverine, Logan, James Howlett. Is this too much of a tribute for a non-real entity? Perhaps. But I will keep writing anyway, specially after seeing "Logan." This is the newest Marvel movie centralized in Wolverine. This is also Hugh Jackman's last portrayal of the comic character. Get ready to cry.

What does this guy mean to us? If you are in your twenties, then you definitely understand the emotional wrecks we have become. Here we have many one of America's anti-heroes from the comics subculture. More importantly, he is the best at what he does, but what he does isn't very nice. This God is not afraid to use excessive force when excessive force is needed. His brooding attitude make him relatable to everyone who watches him. And let's face it: he is the reason why at some point we wanted adamantium in our skeletons.

Like all the great heroes, he was born on a time of need. He was born before the Vietnam War ended. I don't know what was the intention, but I like to think it was because we needed a reminder that it only gets tougher. And so should we, specially when you lose your memories. That's the other thing: him losing his memories makes me root for him even more.

But good things most somehow come to an end. Nine installments of the X-Men film series and 17 years later, Jackman has called it quits. Unless a movie involving the Avengers is made. In that case, he has to do it. As a spoiler, in his newest movie, Logan and Charles have to protect Laura. Who is Laura? That's for you to find out. In this one we see him as vulnerable as ever. "Logan" is the X-Men movie you all wanted to see. It will get all up in your feelings, though. And you wouldn't have it any other way. So if you have some respect left in you, go and bid our Hero farewell the way he deserves.

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.
