Why I'm Still Upset Agent Carter Got Cancelled

Hayley Atwell reprised her role of Peggy Carter in Marvel's "Agent Carter". Peggy Carter who first debuted in "Captain America: The First Avenger", then appeared in "Agent Carter" which aired in January 2015. The show ran for two seasons but unfortunately was cancelled by ABC in 2016. I'm still not over the fact this show was cancelled.

Peggy Carter is definitely one of my favorite characters from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I was super excited when the TV show was first announced. Here are some of the reasons why the show was so great.

1. Peggy Carter knew her value and didn't wait on anyone's approval.

While her male colleagues saw her as a secretary, Peggy Carter always tried to get her hands on the cases. She didn't care whether they approved of her and she always defended herself when they patronized her. She also didn't care about being recognized for her hard work, the only thing that mattered to her was doing the right thing.

2. She was known for being Steve Rogers' support.

As we see in "Captain America: The First Avenger", Peggy Carter stuck by his side because she knew he was meant for more in his life. In "Agent Carter", she protects the sample of Steve's blood from being taken by other people. Despite him being gone, she wanted to protect him.

3. The show was an inspiration for women.

Many different girls looked up to Peggy Carter's character. I think the line "I know my value. Anyone else's opinion doesn't really matter" resonated with so many women like myself. Seeing such a strong and powerful woman on TV was perfect. She was a true and honest female character that wasn't afraid of being who she is.

4. The villains of the show were also strong female characters.

Dottie Underwood was a bad-ass master assassin who could trick anyone who crossed her path.

5. The hair and makeup was gorgeous

I think they truly captured the essence of the 1940's in this show. Peggy Carter's outfits were always perfect and her hair flawless. I mean just look at her!

I hope to see more of Peggy Carter in the future. Even though the show ended, many fans still love this beautiful and bad-ass character Marvel created. Plus, there is truly no other actress that could portray Peggy as good as Hayley Atwell.

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.
