Running Away To The Circus Isn't Just a Cliche

Our Imagination comes alive in a new way when we watch the Greatest Showman.

Running Away To The Circus Isn't Just a Cliche

What was your favorite entertainment as a child? Was it having the imagination of running to the circus? Have you ever been to the circus? If so, what is your favorite act?

"The Greatest Showman" is the next big movie that we can relate to the next to the 1941 film "Dumbo," that takes our imagination to the next level of what we can imagine what the circus is like.

Life is about taking risks and going after your dreams. From a very young age, the main character started from nothing and was nothing in the society he grew up in. He dreamed of many dreams and started from the bottom and worked his way up the ladder of success. As many of us can relate we are still looking for our niche in life. We may go from job to job, but nothing feels right and then we turn one new experience into something grand.

This movie has everything wrapped in one. It has action, romance, and a great soundtrack. The words to the songs are so uplifting and they will have you smile and tap your toes each time.

This movie also has Zac Efron in it who is a dream to look at. No matter how many times I watch the movie my heart stops and wonders if he will make it out alive? (if you haven't seen the movie watch it so you know what I am talking about!) This movie took seven years to make and it is every bit of great wrapped in one. It takes our dream of the circus and tells a story of one of the most famous people the circus knows today.

This movie not only teaches us that if we fall, but we also need to get back up again and try again.

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.
