24 years, 4 movies, same result.

Toy Story Made Me Cry AGAIN!

Pixar, you did it again.

You made a "Toy Story" movie, the fourth in 24 years. You hit grandslams with all three despite all of the odds against you.

The first one was a groundbreaking masterpiece as the first movie ever to be entirely out of computer animation. The second movie was a miracle after Pixar nearly had the entire movie deleted and then started over to finish three years worth of work in less than one. Then ten years after two titans of animation you added a third one to the mix without ease. Many argue that "Toy Story 3" was the best of the three. Honestly, it's impossible to say which is better because all 3 went the distance as near-perfect if not perfect films.

But then, you went for a fourth one. I mean come on, there's no way a fourth "Toy Story" movie could match the same level as the other three knockouts. Not every Pixar movie is a guaranteed classic anymore. For every "Inside Out" there's a "Cars" movie. We've been getting Pixar sequel overkill with some decent ones like "Monsters University" and "Finding Dory" and an awesome one in "Incredibles 2." But there is no way a fourth "Toy Story" movie could deliver on the previous three.

The "Toy Story" movie franchise had a chance to end on a perfect note. How many trilogies do we have where all three movies are legitimately great? "The Lord of The Rings" and.....that's it!

So it's almost pure hubris for Pixar to go back to the well again and extend the saga of their most iconic franchise.

And dammit Pixar, you made me cry again!

It was another perfect ending to the "Toy Story" saga that I thought didn't need to continue, but it turns out you were right and I was dead wrong.

You even took a character like Bo Peep, who wasn't even in the third movie, and made her the most fun and interesting character of the whole movie! You had a toy villain who was worthy of belonging in the same class as Stinky Pete and Lotso the bear and added more dimensions to her and gave her a great arc!

You even deconstructed the fascinating lore of how toys are made and why they are alive with the absurb creation of a toy made out of trash named Forkie! And you managed to reunite Key and Peele!

And I'm a 25 year old dude who hardly cries in movies no matter how hard I try and you made me cry easily at the end!

Dammit Pixar! How do you keep defying the animation Gods with masterpiece after masterpiece with these movies about toys!

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.

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.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
