Basically my inner ramblings while the movie played

My Thoughts While Watching "Spider-Man: Homecoming"
Spider-Man: Homecoming

When MARVEL first announced that they had recast the role of Spider-Man, I was apprehensive. They already had two different actors as Spider-Man, why would you do another?

Then they announced that he was going to make his debut in the new Captain America movie. That interested me. Actually, it more than interested me. I was ecstatic.

It would be the first time Spider-Man would appear alongside the Avengers on the big screen. It was something I never thought would ever happen because of rights issues between MARVEL and Sony. But we were finally going to get it and I could not be more excited.

Then I went and saw this new Captain America movie and I was sold. This Spider-Man would be a perfect combination of Peter Parker and Spider-Man. And he would be getting his own movie.

Which leads us to the present.

"Spider-Man Homecoming".

So without further ado, here are my thoughts while watching the newest installment of the newest web-slinging hero.

-"Do a flip!" *Peter does a flip* *cheers from the random guy*

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.

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.
