Netflix: More Than A Moment

Netflix's "More Than a Moment" is a curated list of 47 films, series, and documentaries that educate and portray the Black experience in America. With everything going on in the world today, there's a surge for the push of education. Education on Black lives, Black experiences, the justice system, systemic racism withing American institutions, and ultimately the history of America. These 47 films, series, and documentaries will give viewers insight on all of this and more.

More Than A Moment |

Educating yourself on the past and present, especially with the way our present is turning out, can have a huge impact on our future. As a Black woman that grew up in a Black household, I was taught many things about Black history, things that my schools failed to touch on. But since the death of George Floyd and the plans for reform that has stemmed from it, I have learned so much about my history, the history of America and my the history of my communities.

Taking an "easy way out" is never the answer but watching these films, shows, and documentaries is such an easy way to get educated on Black history and the Black experience. So, tune in!

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.

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.
