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)

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.
