Love Is The Ultimate Hero

There isn't a Superman with Lois Lane.

Love Is The Ultimate Hero

Love can make you do crazy things. Everything comes with it including happiness, anger sadness. It's enough to drive a human insane. What about a superhero? A vigilante? A villain?

Loving someone is enough motivation. Love is so powerful that it can determine a hero's willingness to continue to sacrifice their lives. For example, Barry Allen wanted to quit being The Flash until he sped through time and saw that he is raising a family with Iris West. She was enough motivation for him to keep protecting Central City. It's these moments that show that even when you want to give up, you have to keep going to protect the ones you love.

Even vigilantes, such as Batman, go through this. Batman has been through many emotional traumatic experiences in his life, that he refuses to let anyone in romantically. That is until he meets Selina Kyle who is the infamous Cat Woman. Selina has been traumatized as a child as well. She truly understands Bruce's pain. This allows them each to gain control of their lives and give in to their emotions. Bruce even told Selina in Batman Incorporated that she is one of the few people he trusted. However, in this case, Bruce puts his personal feelings aside and keeps his focus on his mission. Even without a significant other, Bruce finds compassion in his Robin, and protecting Gotham.

Lois Lane. Iris West. Selina Kyle. Dinah Laurel Lance. Kendra Sanders.

Every single one of these women are an example of how important they are to our beloved superheroes and vigilantes. They provide human emotion behind these characters. They help keep their beloveds sane with all the madness that goes on in their lives. Lois Lane does not care that Clark's really Superman. She would put herself in harm's way continuously to make sure the right actions are done. Superman fell in love with her because Lois is the kind of person he wishes he was. It's why they work. Without her, Superman would have a huge hole in his humanity. He'll just be another superhero.

When we see these women, don't think of them as a significant other. See them as a key grip. They are the real heroes. Even if a majority of them don't have superpowers, they are powerful enough on their own.

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.
