Everybody has had one of those days where they just don't feel good. Whether you're sick, tired, or just a little down, sometimes all you can do is lay in bed and watch your favorite movies to lift your spirits. Here are ten of my all-time favorite sick day movies. Enjoy!

1. "Mulan" (1998)

I know this is a kid's movie but come on, it's "Mulan"! So funny, so empowering, and it has the best soundtrack ever.

2. "Mamma Mia" (2008)

This fun musical (that takes place in Greece, by the way) will have you singing along at the top of your lungs.

3. "The Princess Bride" (1987)

An absolute classic. "The Princess Bride" has everything: true love, adventure, humor, sword fighting, and friendship.

4. "The Proposal" (2009)

My all time favorite romantic comedy. Betty White, Ryan Reynolds, and Sandra Bullock… need I say more?

5. "The Princess Diaries" (2001)

"The Princess Diaries" makes me feel like anybody can be a princess, and sometimes I just need that.

6. "Beauty and the Beast" (2017)

Make sure to watch the 2017 version with Emma Watson and not the old cartoon. It's so much better.

7. "Moana" (2016)

I've been obsessed with this movie since it came out two years ago. "How Far I'll Go" is my anthem.

8. "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone" (2001)

Before the "Harry Potter" movies get super dark and depressing, we have "The Sorcerer's Stone". It's a magical gem filled with friendship that will make you wish you could join Harry and his friends at Hogwarts.

9. "Star Wars A New Hope" (1977)

This isn't exactly a happy go lucky movie, but I've been watching it since I was a little kid so it still gives me all the nostalgic feels.

10. "A Knight's Tale" (2001)

The most underrated movie of all time. I can't even explain it. Just watch it

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?


If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
