10 Movies To Watch When You Want To Pretend You're Not An Adult

Childhood is short, but it doesn't mean you can't go back and live it again.

10 Movies To Watch When You Want To Pretend You're Not An Adult

Over the past few weeks, my life has been crazy hectic. I have had to adjust getting back into the groove of things with college classes starting and finding the time to do everything else that absolutely needs to get done. (Hint: see my recent article "For Those With The Apartment From Hell") So, while I've been forced to grow up and start acting more like an adult, which isn't fun because let's face it, it can be scary sometimes when all you really want is your parents to be right by your side. I've thought back to the good ol' days when life was less complicated. And when I had days were I could relax, get cozy on the couch with a blanket, and enjoy a movie.

Back at home, my family owns a TON of movies. It's ridiculous. You could watch a different movie every day for a year. I have many childhood movies that I love to watch. Over and over again. Once, I watched a movie for the entirety of my Thanksgiving break and that should give you an idea of the standard of the movies that had made this list. Without further aduo here's a list of some of my favorite childhood movies, so pop open a coke, slam that bag of buttery popcorn into the microwave, plop your keister on that comfy couch, and...hope to God that it's on Netflix.

Thank me later!

1. "The Parent Trap" (1998)

2. "Annie" (1982)

3. Cheaper by the Dozen (2003)

4. My Date with the President's Daughter

It will be okay, eventually.

A Letter To My Heartbroken Self

Breakups are hard. There's nothing comparable to the pain of losing someone you thought would be in your life forever. Someone who said all the right things at the right times. Someone who would give you the reassurance you needed, whenever you needed it. And then one day, it just... stops. Something changes. Something makes you feel like you're suddenly not good enough for him, or anyone for that matter.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Urban Intellectuals

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.
