A Movie A Month, For The 2019 Calendar Year

That's 12 movies you need to see - one date night a month, guaranteed!


Resident movie fanatic here, and I am so excited about the movies coming out this year! Without further ado, here are my top picks for each month- and the movies they beat out for that spot.

January- "The Upside"

I love movies based on true stories, and this one looks hilarious. It also reminds me of "Me Before You," but I hope I don't cry as much. Kevin Hart is a win, what can I say?

I know "The Kid Who Would Be King" is also coming out this month, but I just don't think it beats out "The Upside."

February- "How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World"

OH MAN AM I PUMPED FOR THIS! The first and second movies are two of my favorite animated movies so this one better keep up. They're always beautiful and have fantastic scores- plus night furies (and now light furies?) are based on axolotls and my best friend has an axolotl... This is the one I'm looking forward to most okay? Let yourself be a kid for a bit and enjoy this!

"Isn't It Romantic" does look good and I will definitely see it with some of my friends for a late Galentines day. I am also looking forward to seeing "Happy Death Day 2U" because the first one was such a good time. But overall, dragons win this one. Who can blame me?

March- "Captain Marvel"

Okay, I'm going to be honest with you. I do not like Brie Larson for this role. But I trust Marvel- Kevin Feige hasn't done wrong by me so far (other than killing Loki in Infinity War but its fine I'm fine). I love Marvel, I love good action movies, and I love women having leading roles in superhero movies.

Plus, if I'm honest, I'm only interested in Chaos Walking because Tom Holland is in it, and I'm a little scared my expectations for Dumbo are too high.

April- "Avengers Endgame"

I was torn between "The Best of Enemies" and "Hellboy" for my April movie pick, but then Marvel had to go and move "Endgame" from May 3rd to April 26th. Blame them for the two Marvel movies in a row on this list, not me.

What can I say? I need answers. "Infinity War" caused too much pain, I'm praying we get our victory here or it might kill me. I'm waiting with bated breath and its January, people.

But yeah, I think "Shazam" looks too goofy (even though I love his comic self) but I have a feeling I will eventually see it. "Pet Sematary" looks good but less groundbreaking. I will definitely be seeing "Hellboy," simply because Hopper from "Stranger Things" is the lead. And the trailer for "The Best of Enemies" gave me goosebumps so that's on the list too. A lot of movies to see in April!

May- "Aladdin"

Robin Williams will forever be "my" Genie. That being said, I am very excited to see how Will Smith and everyone else do at making this classic into a live action movie.

Also, nothing else interesting has been announced to come out in May so far.

June- "Dark Phoenix"

Ohhh boy is this one going to be a heavy hitter. I was excited about these comics a year ago and I'm just as excited about the movie. Some old friends in somewhat younger bodies join some new characters and I am living for it.

I am of course still totally going to see "Men in Black International"- after all, it's got Thor AND Valkyrie!

July- "Spider-Man: Far from Home"

TOM HOLLAND. I love him. I'm still crying over his *scene* in "Infinity War" but gosh darn it he is the best Spider-Man and nobody can convince me otherwise.

The live action "The Lion King" also comes out in July, so you bet I will be in theaters at least twice that month!

August- "New Mutants"

A much darker X-Men movie, basically a Marvel horror movie? I am IN. It's never too early for spooks, and I'm forever a Marvel nerd so you know I'm going.

"Artemis Fowl" also comes out this month, which makes my 5th-grade heart happy.

September- "IT: Chapter 2"

YES. I loved the first one and am definitely ready to see how it ends! Plus, fun fact, the first time I held my current boyfriend's hand was when we saw this with friends in theaters- we weren't even dating yet.

"IT II" beat out "Spies in Disguise," an animated movie with Will Smith and Tom Holland... I'm sure I'll still see it though.

October- "Joker"

Joaquin Phoenix may not be Heath Ledger, but I am in. Phoenix's Joker will be hundreds of times better than Jared Leto's Joker for sure. The Joker became my favorite villain when I was like 12 so I am very ready for an origin story. (I know it's a shock from my Marvel loving self, but at one time I didn't care about the difference.) This movie is supposed to be heartbreaking but I am here for that.

October also holds "Gemini Man," another Will Smith spy movie that seems much more intense than "Spies in Disguise."

November- "Charlie's Angels"

They got Sir Patrick Stewart, I feel the need to see it. Plus I'm not excited for all the "Frozen 2" hubbub later in the month.

December- "Star Wars: Episode IX"

It does not have a title yet and I think Rey is a cruddy character, but by golly I just want to see how they end this, okay? They better not do any injustice to the Queen (Carrie Fisher).

"Cats" is also coming out but is a bit underwhelming comparatively. I mean Idris Elba is a win but I think Taylor Swift cancels him out... we'll see, okay?

And there you have it, the top movie to see each month as of right now, and their runners up! I hope this helps your movie hunt as much as it did mine. I feel like I'm more ready for the year knowing I have all of this to look forward to.

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.
