Looking Towards 2017

Some nice things happened to me in 2016 - how about 2017?

Looking Towards 2017

Last week I wrote a little list about the good things that happened in 2016. I would like to keep that positivity ball rolling and make a personal list of the good things that are going to happen in 2017! So let's get to it:

1. Movies!

Okay first and foremost, the most important part of 2017, Power Rangers reboot movie is released!! Other great movies such as "Beauty and the Beast," "Lego Batman," and "Star Wars: Episode VIII" are coming out this year too! So needless to say any money I earn this year will be going to the theater.

2. Comics!

Actually, when I think about it, my money will not just go to the theater. It will also go towards new Power Rangers comics! It is a new year, so that means more comics to look forward to. Especially exciting is the Justice League/Mighty Morphin Power Rangers crossover miniseries starting this month. Seeing Wonder Woman and the Pink Ranger together is a dream come true, honestly.

3. Job!

I do not think money will be too much of a problem though, since I have accepted a steady organist job at a local church! I will be alternating with another organist so I am not playing every week, but it is nice to know I will have a mostly regular paying job.

4. Animation!

While I am not sure how ready I am to go back to school, my classes are going to steadily increase their focus on animation and other skills I need for my future. So while hours and homework may be a drag, the work will be worth it in the end.

5. Projects!

Speaking of animation, one of my 2017 resolutions is to work more on animating personal projects, not just for schoolwork. The more contributions to a portfolio or resume, the better! So I finally started a YouTube channel as a way to show off my work and hopefully gain a little audience.

6. Disneyland!

This summer, my family is going to California! This is especially exciting to me, since if I want to work for Disney I have to know my way around its home state. And of course, seeing Disneyland for the first time will be a great experience.

7. College!

Right now I am preparing my application for transfer to Pratt Institute for the fall of 2017. I cannot wait for this next step in my education, and to move to what is supposedly the "art-making center of the world." Of course, I am also excited for campus cats and living close to Time Square's gigantic Disney Store.

8. Birthday!

Finally, this year I am finally reaching another milestone of ages and turning 21! I do not think this will totally affect me in a big way, as I do not plan on drinking much, but it will still be a nice feeling to know that I made it this far.

So those are some nice things of 2017 planned for me. But the best part is, those are only the things I know about. Who knows what other great things will happen this year!

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.

Here are some things that you could do while being invisible, because being invisible can benefit your social life too.

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.
