Floods of tear-soaked viewers are exiting movie theaters.  

There is no denying that The Fault in Our Stars is a sob story. Two cancer-riddled teenagers have a passionate love, doomed from the start. Based on the novel of the same title by John Green, the movie adaptation did not disappoint. 

The chemistry between Hazel, played by Shailene Woodley, and Augustus, played by Ansel Elgort, feels real and makes having dry eyes impossible. Do not dwell on who you think will die, just enjoy the film as it happens. This story is not an ordinary cancer story. Two people, much too young, face death fearlessly, accepting their fates as something as certain as the coming of another season. Hazel and Augustus are amazingly selfless. They put their families and each other before their own needs, no matter how much pain they have. With bravery, wit and passion, the couple captivates the audience with their complex lines and emotions. While it may only be a story about love-struck teens, they are wise beyond their years and their story appeals to almost anyone. 

When you go see the movie, I have two pointers. One, bring tissues. Two, get a drink, like Coke, to sip on that will suppress your sobs at least a little. Join the bandwagon and see the film. Anyone who has a heart will absolutely adore it.  Kidding, but really. Plenty of guys have endured it and admitted to liking it, including my boyfriend who even read the book before the movie and, shockingly, enjoyed both. I would suggest reading the book before, or after, if you don’t mind breaking the rule. Both are excellent and redefine the intensity of teen romance. 

Okay. If you don’t understand what I mean, see The Fault in Our Stars.

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.
