The 10 Best Movies To Watch After A Bad Day

Whether you had a bad day at work, are having a crappy mental health day, or are having relationship problems, here are 10 movies that will put a smile on your face. Find a comfy blanket, some popcorn, and let movie night commence!

1. Zootopia

This is by far one of my favorite animated movies from the past few years. Judy Hopps's positivity is sure to lift your spirits and give you a much needed boost after a rough day.

2. Juno

Ellen Page and Michael Cera are a dynamic duo full of awkwardness, love, and humor. This movie is one I'll never get tired of watching.

3. Bridesmaids

Having a fight with your best friend? Love life going down the drain? Bridesmaids is full of laughs and hope. And hey, at least you're not vomiting in the fanciest bridal store in town, right?

4. Silver Linings Playbook

This movie is great for anyone having a bad mental health day. Although it's more serious than others on this list, it tells a beautiful story that is sure to provide a smile or two.

5. To The Bone

*Trigger warning: This movie is about eating disorders and is set in an inpatient care facility*

This Netflix movie follows Ellen (Eli) as she struggles to recover from an eating disorder and is always one I come back to on days when I need to be reminded I am more than my mental illnesses.

6. Mamma Mia

Meryl Streep. Abba. Greek islands. Need I say more?

7. The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

The perfect movie for the daydreamer in all of us who may be stuck in a rut right now.

8. It's a Wonderful Life

This classic movie is sure to put a smile on your face and help you remember your worth.

9. 13 Going on 30

Classic 80's throwbacks? Check. Unrequited love? Check. Jennifer Garner acting like a 13 year old? Check. I'm not a huge rom-com person but this movie is one I'll make an exception for.

10. The Pursuit of Happiness

This movie will make you cry and laugh at the same time. It's the perfect reminder to work hard and to keep moving forward, and the fact that it's based off of a true story makes it even better.

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.

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.
