To the person moving into my freshman dorm room…

One year ago today, I was in your shoes. It was finally move-in day. You're moving into room W525 in the 1940 Residence Hall. That's such an amazing room; I miss it so much. So many amazing memories happened in this very room last year, and I hope you get to create some great ones too.

In this very dorm room, every episode of Riverdale season 3 was binged. The entirety of New Girl, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Gilmore Girls, and Friends were watched as well. So many pints of ice cream were eaten, as well as hot chocolate, mug cakes, fruit snacks, and tons of Ramen.

Pumpkins were painted, gingerbread houses were made, the One Direction documentary was watched, and birthday cake definitely made a presence. There may be a little stain on the's nail polish. We spilled some and tried for so long to get it out (sorry).

The fire alarm did go off quite a bit, but it did make for some pretty fun 7-Eleven and McDonald's adventures at 3 am!

Living in that room with my three best friends made my freshman year of college much more amazing, and I wouldn't trade it for the world.

When you set foot into that dorm room for the first time, soak it all in. This is where you're going to be living for the next eight months. Make the most of it. While you won't spend the majority of your time in that room, make as many amazing memories as you can. I would do anything to live in that room again, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Everyone's been here. And, truthfully, it sucks. But in order to move on and get past something you need to allow yourself to feel it for what it is--all of the heartbreak and pain--and then you can start to take steps move on.

The Christmas season is coming to an end, but it's not too late to get some last-minute movies in! Unfortunately, this year didn't look like a typical Christmas. While we can't have any big Christmas parties or family gatherings, we can still celebrate at home! Christmas is the best time for nostalgia, and we could all use some warm and fuzzy feelings as we wrap up a tough year and enter a new one that hasn't been proven any calmer, either.

As a kid who grew up in the 2000s, I can think of some of my favorite staple Christmas movies. If you're looking for recommendations or just a walk down memory lane, check out the list below.

As we enter the new year, you might be looking for a great show to kick-off 2021. Look no further, I have the perfect recommendation. "The Wilds" was released on Amazon Prime last month and has been gaining traction steadily since then. This series of 10 one-hour episodes tells the stories of eight girls who find themselves on a deserted island after their plane crashed while they are on their way to a resort. Unlike other survival shows, there's a bit more to the story than what first meets the eye. This show is unique in characters, storytelling methods, and plot.

If you aren't convinced yet, allow me to provide you with a list of further persuasion.

Online classes and virtual reality in general have been the staple of 2020. One day in March, everything shut down and we all had to learn how to work, teach, study, do therapy, and take classes remotely without much preparation. So, it's been a roller-coaster experience, and definitely not what we expected.

11 TV Characters Who Are Irritating BEYOND Belief

Maybe they never really did anything seriously wrong, but oh my god they are annoying af.


Have you ever been watching your favorite show, all comfortable and relaxed, and then that one character that you just can't stand pops up on the screen and ruins your mood? I know I certainly have. These characters aren't necessarily evil or horrible people, but they do have personalities that make them incredibly irritating. They're the kind of characters that make you want to yell at the writer, "what the hell were you thinking with this one?" Perhaps they have never hurt a fly, but it doesn't matter since their character just straight-up sucks.

By the way, some of my arguments contain spoilers, so fair warning.
