11 Movies To Watch If You Need A Good Cry

A common human reaction when something moves us, whether it be to sadness or extreme happiness, is to cry. Sometimes, we bottle it all up and then it overtakes us while watching a movie or listening to a song.

Well, I don't know about you, but I often enjoy a good cry movie. It's nice to let it out but also nice to feel something with the characters.

1. "Marley And Me"


This movie ruined me when I was a kid, and it ruins me now. The bond between a family and their dog which comes to a sad end gets me every time.

2. "A Dog's Purpose"


I am pretty sure I cried this entire movie. Every. Single. Time. That the dog died. I was a mess. Worse than Marley and Me.

3. "If I Stay"


Man, oh, man. This one gets me. Especially that scene at the end.

4. "Me Before You"


Right in the heart. Just hit me with your car, it'd be easier than watching this kill me slowly.

5. "Hunger Games: Mocking Jay Part 2"


*Spoiler alert*




Simply for the fact that Finnick dies.

6. "Hachi"


Sad dog movies should be illegal, that's all I am saying.

7. "Inside Out"


Literally, only for this scene.

8. "Dear John"


I don't know what's worse: When Savannah breaks up with John through a letter, or when his dad passes away.

Either way, I'm a mess every time.

9. "The Help"


This scene gets me right in the heart. That poor little girl.

10. "The Vow"


I pray to God that I never go through anything like what he went through. But I also pray I find a guy who will pursue me as hard as he pursued her.

11. "Steel Magnolias"


Maybe it's because I acted this scene out in my drama class, but when the mom goes on a rant about how much it hurts because her daughter died I die a bit inside, too.

So if you need a good cry, pop in one of these movies and grab your tissues. As much as you'll think "I hate this movie," I am sure you'll enjoy it.

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.
