Things I want to say to my favourite comedy group.

An Open Letter To The Impractical Jokers

Warning: Heartfelt letter ahead.

Dear Brian, Sal, Joe, and James,

I’m stoked to be writing to you guys! I like a lot of famous people, and I often idolize them and think about what they’re up to. I know how busy they can be, so I know how busy you guys can be too. I really hope you guys read this, but I understand that you might not be able to. I’m still happy to be able to write to you.

First of all, let me say that you guys are absolutely amazing. I love all four of you equally and immensely. I’ve watched probably 85 percent of all of your episodes, and I’ve yet to find a single one that I’ve disliked. You guys make me die laughing with every joke I hear. I even re-watch episodes from time to time and I still laugh as much as when I watched them the first time. My parents don’t appreciate the humor, but I don’t care; they know how much I like you guys. My brothers like it, though, and I’m even watching it with them whilst typing this.

Admittedly, I didn’t start watching you guys from the beginning. I remember seeing commercials for you guys for a while, but I never thought to watch the show at first. I started watching around season two or three. I believe I was looking for a new show to watch, and remembering one of the commercials, I decided to give it a try. I was hooked from the first episode I watched the one where you were in a candy shop, if I remember correctly – and I watched a whole bunch of episodes in a row after that. Since then I’ve went back and watched season one, and almost all the episodes in the seasons after. I’ve also watched all of the specials, and watched the episodes of Jokers Wild, while it lasted.

So here I am, writing to you guys now. I’m going to write something about each of you individually, to tell you guys just how I feel

Q, you’re an amazing person. I appreciate you a lot because you’re a firefighter; I wanted to be a firefighter when I was a kid, and I trained to be a firefighter my freshman year of high school (I’m a senior now). The guys tease you by saying you look like Rosie O’Donnell, which is kinda true, but I think you’re pretty handsome when you have your beard! You seem to be just a regular guy who is having fun with his best friends, and I appreciate that quality. And judging by your tweets and some of the challenges you’ve done, you seem to be very empathetic, which I appreciate as well. I have had mental health issues in the past, so I can say that we definitely need more people like you in the world. Keep doing what you’re doing, and always be yourself!

Sal! You’re extremely funny, dude. You’re very unique and have a great personality in my opinion. You do have a few fears, like cats and germs and other things, but that doesn’t matter; you are still very cool. I like those dances you do, and all those weird voices you can make. You’re good at coming up with nicknames, too. When I heard your nickname was Ja’crispy, I was laughing throughout that entire day just thinking about it. You have a very similar sense of humour as me, so I guess that’s why I find you so funny. You’re just really cool overall.

Ah, Joe. You’re like the hilarious uncle who’s always cracking the same funny jokes and hogging all the food during thanksgiving. Your humour is great because you have a lot of running jokes that people like. I never would’ve thought that running around and screaming “LARY!!” would be so iconic! You can make even the toughest tasks they give you seem extremely funny. You take the punishments so well, and just the way you are so outspoken is hilarious, and I really like that.

Last but not least, Murr. From what I’ve heard, you’ve done a lot to make the show become a reality, and that’s really great of you. You seem to be very active, working hard every single day while doing what you love, which is absolutely awesome. You seem like an all around nice guy, too, given how polite you are in general. There’s a lot to say about you, but overall I just like the way you live your life. You are really funny as well, and your spontaneity is one of the things that make you so funny. Your punishments are memorable too, specifically the one where you had to go skydiving. It was good, but I felt really bad for you! I hope you’re okay after that. You seemed really scared. But yeah, you’re the man. I hope to see more good humour from you in the future.

And to all of you: you guys are really special to me. You remind me a lot of my father, since he lived in Brooklyn for a long time, so we’ve been all over New York. I could go on and on about the huge effect you guys have had on my life. But this is only one short letter, and I couldn’t possibly get to everything I want to say to you guys. So I’ll leave you with this: thank you so much. Thank you for adding a lot of laughs throughout the years, and brightening my day when I watch you. Thank you for creating this wonderful group, and thank you for being a part of my life. Keep on joking!

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
