What Went Through My Mind As I Watched The First Trailer For 'Spider-Man: Far From Home'

Spoiler alert: the movie itself is a a spoiler.

What Went Through My Mind As I Watched The First Trailer For 'Spider-Man: Far From Home'

First of all, I'm not really even that much of a Marvel fan. Well maybe I am, I don't even know anymore. Actually no, I definitely am not. I'm one of those obnoxious people who think that he's too cool to say that he's a Marvel fan, thereby making me that much more uncool just for thinking that way.

Still, regardless of whether or not I am an actual fan, I still find myself sluggishly dragging myself to the movie theater just about every time that a new Marvel movie is released, and I find myself watching pretty much every single new Marvel trailer as soon as it comes out. That's how I found myself watching the first trailer for "Spider-Man: Far From Home."

As anyone who watched last year's "Avengers: Infinity War" is aware, the mere existence of this new Spider-Man movie is basically a gigantic spoiler in itself. At the end of that movie, Peter Parker/Spider-Man turned to dust along with half of the universe, so he is currently a pile of ash in the Marvel world. Yes, that is definitely an "Infinity War" spoiler, but if you have not already seen that movie then why on Earth are you reading this article in the first place?

I mean, it seemed pretty clear that Spider-Man and the rest of the Avengers who turned to dust would eventually be resurrected, but the new Spider-Man movie coming out so soon after the next Avengers movie, called "Avengers: Endgame" pretty much confirms that, and makes the ending of "Infinity War" much less powerful.

Unless, of course, the new Spidey movie is set before everyone turned to dust, but that seems unlikely. Spider-Man is a character that has long been fought over between Marvel and Sony. It's good that they finally decided to share him, but I wonder if competing viewpoints between the two companies have anything to do with "Far From Home" being released so soon after "Endgame."

Another question I have is, why do I even care? It's just a movie, for God's sake. Why am I spending my precious time in this world wondering about Marvel movie release dates and the way that the Marvel timeline works? Does any of this really affect me? Shouldn't I be doing something more productive with my time instead?

Yes, I probably should, but I also probably won't. So, here I am, my mind still consumed by the blood-thirsty parasite that is the newest Spider-Man trailer. In the movie, Spider-Man and his friends take a trip to Europe, then Nick Fury shows up, who also turned to dust in the last movie, I might add. Then Spidey starts fighting some sort of fire creature, then a water creature, then Jake Gyllenhaal shows up as Mysterio and shoots green beams out of his hands as he battles some sort of water monster. Yeah, I think that's about it.

Will I see this new movie? Yeah, I'm sure I probably will. But I swear, I'm not an actual Marvel fan. I may have seen pretty much every Marvel movie that has been released, but that doesn't mean anything. Sure, I'll probably also see every Marvel movie that gets released in the near future, but so what? And yeah, I did just spend this entire article discussing Marvel movies, but oh well. I see all the movies, but I don't actually get excited for them. A new Marvel movie is basically just an obligatory trip to the movies, no feelings of excitement or emotions involved.

See? Like I told you before, I'm not an actual Marvel fan.

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.

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.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
