The answer is Yes, yes it is.

Star Wars: Rogue One... Is It Out of This World?

Star Wars hits theaters again, but this time in a way no one imagined. With it's incredible and well fitting story line to it's quirky and sarcastic new robot, this movie blew my mind from beginning to end.

The movie takes place before Star Wars IV: A New Hope. In this movie we learn how the rebel alliance stole the blueprints of the Death Star and how they came to know all the flaws in it. It is up to a peculiar set of hero's to save the universe from the disastrous empire, and evil Lord Vader.

This movie brings together both the classic Star Wars and new 21st century Star Wars. It takes the universe we've come to know and love to a whole new orbit. Yes I must admit it was odd not to have the usual Star Wars introduction at the start of the movie, but seconds after I completely forgot and did not need an introduction because the movie showed it all.

It was incredible how the writers and director, Gareth Edwards brought together A New Hope and Rogue one and connected both movies in a way that could make people believe that Rogue one was written in the time A New Hope was. Everything made sense, and we even got to see some of our favorite classic characters that we had not seen in years; one which included my personal favorite, Darth Vader.

Vader was portrayed in such an badass way that any time he came out people in the audience couldn't help but gasp. Vader was the same old cunning, evil mastermind that many of us have come to appreciate as one of the greatest villains of all time. He stood out in the movie despite him being in only a few scenes and *SPOILER ALERT* his ending was MIND BLOWING. It was the bad ass side of Vader everyone wanted to see.

Felicity Jones who plays Jyn Eso the protagonist in this movie did an amazing role of playing a hero who gave no f*cks about the empire. She wanted to fight for what was right and so she did alongside her friends, one who happened to be blind.

The diversity in this movie was also very great. We had so many POC it was great to see. A cast so diverse always makes the movie better in my book.

The movie was well casted, well written, and in general was a well made movie. Disney continues to prove that the Star Wars franchise will never die, and even with movies like this, it can still be out of this world.

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.

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.
