One Direction's Tenth Anniversary

July 23rd, 2020 is about to make History.

One Direction's Tenth Anniversary

Tomorrow will mark 10 years since the band One Direction was formed by Simon Cowell on The X Factor. Since then, they have become one of the most famous and successful bands of all time. Stealing the hearts and ears of a plethora of people from the 10-year-old girls to their 50-year-old mothers. The summer of 2015 was a hard time for many, seeing that is when One Direction broke up but tried to ease the countless broken teenage hearts by announcing a "hiatus" instead. Since that summer, we have received many solo albums, interviews, tours, and even some light content between the band, but nothing remarkable. One Direction fans are as obsessed as ever and are demanding some content between Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan, Liam Payne, and possibly Zayn Malik for their 10th anniversary. With hints having been dropped by some of the members, the anticipation is high.

I know what you're thinking, "they were a boy ban 10 years ago and all of their fans are adults by now"- and your point is?? Thanks to the plethora of social media out there, especially TikTok, and even the recent global pandemic, it is apparent that the "fandom" is in full swing. With the day rapidly approaching, fans are terrified. Many saying "it could be the best or worst day of their life". Well, hopefully, it is the latter. This morning the official One Direction Instagram account posted a picture on their insta- story saying "10 Years of One Direction", which was the first active moment on the account since 2016. Many other famous accounts have been awaiting the arrival of this day. The "Sirius XM Hits 1" account has turned into a full-fledged One Direction fan account, and I am here for it. However, the expectations for Thursday are ranging from some hoping for a simple tweet to some expecting a reunion tour. Personally, just seeing the 4 (amazing, if 5) of them breathe in the same room in 2020 would be enough for me. There have been hints at a possible tour or new music, however last week, a representative from Sony music released information. Tomorrow, a website will be created which hosts "new" unreleased songs and music videos and behind the scenes content.

Whatever happens tomorrow, will dictate the rest of our lives. I kid, I kid. However, it will dictate my mood and serotonin levels for about a week or so. I just hope we get some content and are able to see our kings reunite.

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.
