I was surprised to see graphic tees with David Bowie, Michael Jackson, Prince, Aaliyah, and even Selena Quintanilla!

Whenever I go to a mall with my sisters, there is one store that my sisters and I always look forward to going, and that store is called Hot Topic. Hot Topic is a retail store that is aimed at young adults and teens with interest in pop culture as well as video gaming and music and popular television shows along with popular anime and popular films. Here are the reasons why Hot Topic is a great luxury to me.

1. Hot Topic is up to date in trends with whatever is going on in Tumblr

As a Tumblr user myself, I get to learn what is currently popular these days regarding celebrities, video games, and music, and etc. One thing that got very popular was this anime "Yuri on Ice." When it was released, this anime was one of the top hottest trends on Tumblr. Then when I got a chance to go to Hot Topic, there was a lot of merchandise for this anime. There were a lot of graphic tees and even small figurines for this anime. Nowadays, when the release date of the popular video game "Kingdom Hearts 3" was announced not too long ago, there was a lot of hype for this game on Tumblr. Then going back to Hot Topic, I saw a few merchandises with "Kingdom Hearts." When I asked the associate for some Kingdom Hearts merchandise, she immediately knew what was talking about and kindly told me that there will more new merchandise by the time "Kingdom Hearts 3" will be released. I got excited and told her I can't wait.

2. Hot Topic is a store to unleash your love for pop culture

Whether you are obsessed with Disney, anime, or even goth, this store has it all! Not only that, the store also sells merchandise regarding films, television, and even 80's singers! I was surprised to see graphic tees with David Bowie, Michael Jackson, Prince, Aaliyah, and even Selena Quintanilla! I also saw a lot of merchandise with popular television shows like "Doctor Who" and "Supernatural" as well. A very popular one now in Hot Topic is "Riverdale." Furthermore, the store also features merchandise from popular cartoons such as "Steven Universe" and "Voltron Force." If you have an obsession with one of these sources in pop culture, feel free to have a look at Hot Topic!

3. Hot Topic is a store that has some great discounts

I remember coming here around Christmas time to see if there are any Christmas sales and apparently there is! The graphic tees in these big boxes were on sale in a very cheap price and I couldn't resist buying them! I literally bought three of the graphic tees as part of my Christmas gift. Yes, I'd recommend for people to do some Christmas shopping at Hot Topic!

Thereby, if you're going out with friends to a mall for some shopping, please stop by at Hot Topic!

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.
