8 Movies To Add To Your Summer 2018 Movie Watchlist

As told by a person who is so into movies, it might be considered unhealthy.

8 Movies To Add To Your Summer 2018 Movie Watchlist

It’s the summer of sequels and I’m not physically or mentally prepared for it. So when everyone else is enjoying the summer sun, you can catch me thriving with my $7 ICEE in the movie theatre. Whether you're a movie person or not, here are eight (maybe obvious, oh well) movies that are must-sees this summer!

**Disclaimer: Are you not a ‘movie person’ because it’s too damn expensive? Good news: AMC Theatres is bringing back $5 Movie Tuesdays !

1. “Deadpool 2” (May 18th, 2018)

Deadpool is back with a bigger budget, y’all!! We can expect the same kick-ass action sequences and humor from the first film, but this time with more co-stars and more expensive explosions. Get excited!!

2. “Solo: A Star Wars Story” (May 25th, 2018)

Not only is it a Star Wars movie, but we all get to come out and support our parents Donald Glover and Khaleesi. Fans have been asking for a Han origin story for freaking years and Lucasfilm finally pulled through! Whether you’re sick of the reboots yet or not, this movie is guaranteed to be a fun one.

3. “Ocean’s 8” (June 8th, 2018)

We’re finally getting the kick-ass female-dominated heist movie we deserve! But honestly this movie could be about Sandra Bullock, Rihanna and Sarah Paulson just hanging out and getting lunch and I would still pay to see it in theatres twice.

4. “Incredibles 2” (June 15th, 2018)

Everyone 14 and under is obligated to wait a week to see this one out of respect for their elders, the '90s kids, who have been waiting 14 YEARS FOR THIS. From this movie we can expect nostalgia, laughs and, of course, no capes.

5. “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom” (June 22nd, 2018)

Chris Pratt, Jeff Goldblum, dinosaurs...honestly, we don’t need much more than that to be satisfied. The first installment of this reboot was so much fun and kept me on the edge of my seat for its nearly three-hour run-time; I’m confident this one will do the same.

6. “Ant-Man and The Wasp” (July 6th, 2018)

If you’re like me and are having extreme Marvel withdrawals since “Avengers: Infinity War” absolutely wrecked you, this movie comes at the perfect time. We get to see The Wasp and her sidekick hopefully in the Quantum Realm and maybe get a clue as to what happens in the (sadly untitled) “Avengers 4” movie coming out next year.

7. “Eighth Grade” (July 13th, 2018)

While not an epic action sequel like the rest of the list, this debut coming-of-age film by comedic genius Bo Burnham is already getting Oscar nods(The heck!? That's wild!?) from some major film critics. It stars Elsie Fisher and, if you weren't wearing your torn Hot Topic skinny jeans already, pull them out and squeeze back into them, as this film is sure to bring you back to your emo phase. I’m basically just going to give Bo Burnham my paycheck at this point.

8. “Hot Summer Nights” (July 27th, 2018)

Another A24 movie that will make you angsty without even trying. It stars America’s sweetheart, Timotheé Chalamet, as a teen just trying his best, while doing some drugs along the way. It looks like a blast and I’m so ready to see it.

So make sure to go hard at your local movie theatres and be part of one of the best box office summers! Feelings and retweeted memes can be found on Twitter @jadedill.

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.
