My Top 5 Movies Of Summer '18

I´m not really a movie buff. I don´t have the patience to watch movies if I´m being honest. But, these are five movies that I thoroughly enjoyed and are rated well by other viewers.

1. "Incredibles 2"

If you haven't already seen this movie, I suggest you do. I saw this recently and honestly, I waited far too long. This movie is possibly the best movie I have ever watched. It did not disappoint AT ALL. I can say that it exceeded my expectations. I didn't think it could top the first movie, but I was proven wrong. I left the movie theater completely satisfied and content with my experience. It was worth the fourteen-year wait.

2. "Hereditary"

I expected hauntings and got slapped with something entirely different. It had some very gory and unexpected turns. I didn't think it was as scary as people assumed it was. When watching this movie, be sure to pay attention to the small details because that is really what allows you to truly understand it.

3. "Life of the Party"

It wasn't the best-rated movie on Rotten Tomatoes, (my boyfriend thinks that a good rating is imperative for it to be considered great) but I thought it was a very cute movie. Maybe it wasn't the most thrilling or well thought out movie, but it had some lessons to be learned. It was very funny and entertaining. If you're looking for a lighthearted and quirky movie to watch, this would be it.

4. "Ant-Man and the Wasp"

"Ant-Man and the Wasp" was a huge turn from the devastating ending of Infinity War. No spoilers will be provided, but let's just say that the mood has changed. "Ant-Man and the Wasp" made us have hope in the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) again with its witty, playful, and hilarious writing. It was a huge improvement from the first film and with another addition to the team, it looks like the Avengers have even more help with the next big threat to come...or perhaps it never went away.

5. "Deadpool 2"

Deadpool was a success from the beginning and there was a lot of high expectations when it came to this one. I don´t think it was better than the first, but it did help that they had a bigger budget. They were able to do more and meet the expectations that MCU fans had for the movie. I'd recommend seeing this movie in theaters for sure.

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.
