5 Movies To Watch This Summer

While some of these are classics from before my time, some of these are classics of my time. Nonetheless, they all should be seen and appreciated by us all. Also, heads up, I'm pretty sure most of these are rated R.

Baby Driver (2017)

LET ME TELL YOU, I love this movie. This movie has a beautiful sound track and made me cry. There's a reason why it's Rotten Tomatoes 93%, 3 Academy award and a Golden Globe nominations. With an adrenaline pumped storyline, well done character development, and a fantastic ending, this movie is probably one of my favorites of all time.

Good Morning, Vietnam (1987)

Robin Williams. That's it, that's the tweet. But seriously, one of Williams' probably better known films with the generations before me, this movie embodies some of the real life struggles of the American soldiers in Vietnam when the war was at its peak and how there was an attempt to keep morale up. I'm glad I'm at an age where I can get all of the references and truly appreciate Robin Williams' sense of humor, may he rest in peace.

The Edge of Seventeen (2016)

This movie did make me cringe, but not in a bad way. The main character, Nadine, struggles with being unaccepted by everyone else who seems 'normal' in high school. I myself had a hard time feeling like I belonged to a group or even had a tight knit group of friends then and this movie understood those frustrations and sense of isolation.

Pulp Fiction (1994)

Quentin Tarantino is one of my favorite directors of all time. Kill Bill? Classic. The Hateful Eight? Extremely well done. Tarantino has such a unique way of writing storylines and then using his style of cinematography that is clean, but extremely visually stimulating. Also, Uma Thurman, Samuel L. Jackson, and John Travolta are the main characters. Need I say more?

The BlacKkKlansman (2018)

After seeing Adam Driver for the first time as Kylo Ren a few years back, I appreciated him as an actor, but never really saw him in too much else. I didn't really see any commercials for this movie or anything so I didn't know what to expect. I was blown away by the intensity of this movie and the beauty of the script. Everyone needs to watch this and see the exquisite performance done by John David Washington.

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.

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
