Miss Americana

The new Taylor Swift documentary captures another side of her, one that the media and people don't ever talk about. It was an excellent film in which you really get a feel at how much hate and criticism she has endured and still has been able to come out on top. Its a glance into how Taylor Swift the famous singer-songwriter is also just a human being like the rest of us, and we often tend to forget that she has feelings too.

I have always been a fan of Taylor Swift. I remember asking my parents to buy me her second studio album at Walmart the day I discovered her. I hadn't realized that she had released a debut album, because at the time I thought all the songs that I was listening to were all on the same album. I mean I was only nine years old so back then was a different time.

I began listening to her music because I enjoyed the catchy melody of her songs and the hooks were always so catchy. Flashback to today, I still listen to her music because I have grown up with it, and her amazing lyricism speaks to me. And this is exactly what that film entitled. It begins with her on the piano composing a song off of her recently released album "Lover." Throughout the whole documentary, it displays her work ethic in the studio, writing and singing and really giving us a behind the scenes of her music.

The film also focuses on different aspects of her life and lets us in on a lot. It explains the way she felt when the 2009 VMA incident happened and how she thought the audience was booing her onstage. It also briefly talks about the 2016 incident where she was basically canceled for lying about the Kanye West lyrics in his "famous" song. If you really think about it, Taylor Swift has endured so much hate over her career and it's really tiring to see that the hate train never ends.

Swift also tackles much bigger issues when she explains the sexual assault case she was in, and how she counter-sued a DJ who groped her. She also explains how heavy and hard it is to see her Mother have cancer and how mama Swift has managed.

It also focuses on politics and how she backed a Democratic candidate for the Senate in Tennessee because it was what she believed in. She never really gave her opinion about politics and this was so beautiful to watch because she stood her ground and didn't take her teams' advice on not talking about politics.

The film was beautiful and let us experience the journey that one of the biggest artists in this world has lived. Thank you, Taylor, it was excellent.

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.
