Last week was one of the biggest nights on TV, aka The Emmys. This year's show was hosted by "Saturday Night Live" cast members Michael Che and Colin Jost. Although at times, it felt like watching a long episode of "Weekend Update" the show was overall very well done. Below are 16 of my top takeaways from this year's show.

1. Where were Michael Che and Colin Jost during the opening? 

However, I'll forgive it since that opening was insightful, catchy and FUNNY.

2. The monologue was decent. 

I think Michael and Colin did a good job, but it was political as to be expected nowadays. Also, I can't be the only one that wants an Obama version of "The Apprentice", right?

3. Chrissy Teigen's reaction when they flashed to her during the monologue was to die for.

4. That Proposal!!!

When director Glenn Weiss proposed to his girlfriend in front of the world I think we all let out a collective "aw."

5. Someone won an Emmy for the Oscars. 

This is actually how Glenn Weiss got on stage to propose.

6. Everyone should watch "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel."

The show won 7 of the 11 Emmys they were nominated for in their debut season.

*and it's one of my personal favs…so watch it! (now streaming on Amazon Prime. Season 2 coming soon!)

7. What were Maya Rudolph and Fred Armisen doing? 

8. Did you hear John Legend got an EGOT?

To be honest, didn't realize he had a GOT…

9. Of course, SNL won, they're stars were hosting… 

10. All the reminders GoT won't be back for another year. 

Love that it won Outstanding Drama Series and Peter Dinklage won for his role, but come on we still have another year.

11. Betty White was there!!!

12. Milo Ventimiglia shaved! 

*gasp*

13. Jesse Plemons was nominated.

AKA the LOVE OF MY LIFE Landry Clarke from "Friday Night Lights."

14. Regardless of your political/religious views, I loved the support for Michael Che’s mother.

15. The fact that Alexis Bledel, Milo Ventimiglia, and Amy Sherman-Palladino were all reunited at the Emmy’s for different projects. 

Still Team Logan forever though!

16. It actually ended on time…

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.

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.
