Minion Madness

Stages of a "Minion" fanatic.

Minion Madness

With these little, yellow, gibberish-talking jellybean animations, it's hard not to fall into their evil, world-dominating takeover. Everywhere you turn, there are Kevin, Bob and Stuart. I was never a big fan of "Despicable Me," but these little guys got me hooked. Though I tried to resist, I eventually jumped on the Minion bandwagon. Here are the stages that prove you aren't falling far behind me:

1. Denial Of Their Cuteness

At first you are like the rest of us: "What the f**k are they even saying?" "I'm not spending $10 bucks to see a kiddy movie!"

2. Anger Over Their Takeover

You go into Walmart and suddenly your blood boils that every product is trying to get a spark in revenue by sticking a Minion on it. I'd have to admit, though, the Minion Mac-N-Cheese is totally worth it.

3. Bargaining For BANANA!

They somehow manage to peel you back like an onion, one layer at a time. Suddenly, you are in a theater as a college student with a bunch of Justin Bieber teenie-boppers. Then, another layer peels back as you begin laughing or feeling their hurt when they lose another leader. You are now realizing the beginning of the obsession.

4. Depression When The Movie Is Over

You realize their cuteness left some kind of fuzzy feeling in your heart. A week later, you are on YouTube searching for all their cute short films. My favorite is when they are on the copy machine! You then become more depressed realizing you'd rather see "Minions" four times than suffer through the "Twilight" series.

5. Acceptance of the Minions

Their cuteness is now irresistible. You need to fill the void. The movie just isn't enough. You go back to the infested Walmart, and boost those companies' revenues by buying a Minion product. Now they'll always be with you. For me, it was a Christmas sweater! Best Christmas sweater EVER! You eventually want all the minions; it's practically inevitable.

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
