The World Lost It's Grandpa This Weekend, And No One Knows How To Handle It- Remembering Stan Lee

The World Lost It's Grandpa This Weekend, And No One Knows How To Handle It- Remembering Stan Lee

If you know, you know.


Stan the man, smiley Stan, the cameo king, and creative genius- this weekend we lost one of the most talented men in the whole world.

He created an experience on paper and in theaters that changed people's lives. It is only appropriate to celebrate the man who made us all believe in superheroes by looking back on who he was and where his heart resided. It is all about remembering the way that his humor and intelligence joined together to form what will live on forever as nothing less than legendary.

What better way to celebrate his life than with some of the best cameos of all time, am I right?


Lee appears at the beginning of the first Thor movie as a truck driver who is trying to pull Mjölnir out of the ground with the backside of his truck.

Let's be real, if anyone else would be able to pick up Thor's hammer, it Stan Lee.

2. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

Just like we all hoped, Stan Lee makes an appearance with the Watchers.

It is accurate, if anyone is watching over the multiverses, it is Stan the Man.

3. Thor Ragnarok 

Sakaar's finest barber, Stan Lee.

"And don't you move, my hands aren't as steady as they used to be!" Lee proclaims as he tries to cut Thor's hair.

4. Captain America: Civil War

An all-time favorite.

Lee appears in a sweet and semi-serious moment looking for someone by the name of "Tony Stank". There is no way anyone can watch this cameo without a giggle.

I am certain that the entire world felt a void when Stan Lee passed away, especially those who knew him personally.

"How many millions of us are indebted to this guy, none more so than me. The father of Marvel has made so many people so incredibly happy. What a life and what a thing to have achieved. Rest in peace Stan" -Tom Holland (Spiderman 2017)

"Thanks for everything Stan Lee! What a life, so well lived. I consider myself extraordinarily lucky to have gotten to meet you and to have played in the world you created." -Chris Pratt (Starlord)

"I owe it all to you, rest in peace Stan" -Robert Downey Jr (Iron Man)

And finally, Chris Evans said it best:

"There will never be another Stan Lee. For decades he provided both young and old with adventure, escape, comfort, confidence, inspiration, strength, friendship and joy. He exuded love and kindness and will leave an indelible mark on so, so, so many lives. Excelsior!!"

For the rest of time, Stan Lee and his comics will wow the world and bring our favorite stories to life. There is no proper way to grieve the death of someone who changed the world in the way that Stan Lee did. For now, we reminisce, and as for the future: we anxiously await the appearances Lee will make in finished movies. *queue uncontrollable sobs*.

To The High School Senior, It's Not All About College Applications

Finish strong, be mindful of your needs, and live in peace.


I wish I could have said this all last year, that you will never have it as easy as you do right now. It's the end of the road for childhood and you're wondering what else do I do with my life now that I'm going to college? It's a mix of emotions and feelings that are hard to process. My goal is telling you this is the year to do everything fun and live like you haven't before. This doesn't mean skip school on the daily and get bad grades(it matters until the end because of college).

But above all else, don't let college applications define your year. People think applying to college is the story of what happens senior year(which is mostly true but I promise that is not the only thing that matters). There is so much more to life than college applications and laughing how everyone becomes depressed their last year from being around the same people. If I could tell myself last year, it would be this:

First, it would be to not argue with people at all. This last year is simply too scared to fight and argue with people over nothing. Do your best to be kind to everyone and not cause problems for other people. Everyone deserves to have a nice senior year.

Second, enjoy being able to live in your own room and not share with anyone else. Once you get to college there's going to be a lot of unnecessary noise that you sort of get used to living with.

Next, do not take an abundance of college classes. They're only going to help you but so much and you're not going to want to do the work anyway. Don't be one of those people who does this and doesn't feel the need to have a social life. It's no joke, recognize you're human and be mindful of your needs.

In addition, there is no such thing as a perfect school. Every school has its flaws and most of the time when people say yes, they're saying yes to the marketing campaign the school has. There is a large difference between the marketing campaign for the school and actually living there. It's always good to go to your top school and tour a second time so you know what definitely fits you.

Most importantly, do not be too consumed in your cell phone and pretend that you don't care about anything. That's like a lame childish response pretending you don't have feelings. And for those that still think this is the way to go, I can't wait until you take a sociology class and learn about how humans are dependent on one another.

Appreciate everything mom and dad have done for you. Do not fuss about what is put on the dinner table, and instead be grateful that they took their time to prepare a meal for YOU. Nothing compares to mom's home-cooked meals. Because that dining hall food can really mess you up.

You will be working the 9-5 all day every day. There will be more work, you will be stressed out about reading around 300 pages of material per week, and have the stress of having two tests as the only semester grades.

Lastly, you will actually have to adult for the first time ever in college and find what keeps you motivated. It's not a hand holding game with constant support. You have the opportunity to do a lot by yourself but also with others.
