10 of the Best Twilight Zone Episodes

1) Death's Head Revisited
"This is not hatred. This is retribution. This is not revenge. This is justice. But this is only the beginning. Your final judgment will come from God."

2) The Obsolete Man
"It's been hidden for over 20 years. It's punishable by death, so it's the only possession that I have that has any value at all to me. So I'm going to just sit down and read until the moment of my death. How will you spend your last moments, chancellor?"

3) The Eye Of The Beholder
"Who are you people anyway? What is this state? Who makes all these rules and conditions and statutes? The state is not god! It hasn't the right to penalize somebody for an accident of birth! It hasn't the right to make ugliness a crime!"

4) The Monsters Are Due On Maple Street
"The tools of conquest do not necessarily come with bombs and explosions and fallout. There are weapons that are simply thoughts, attitudes, prejudices to be found only in the minds of men. For the record, prejudices can kill."

5) The Night Of The Meek
"I live in a dirty rooming house on a street filled with hungry kids and shabby people where the only thing that comes down the chimney on Christmas is more poverty. I just wish, on one Christmas, only one, I'd like to see the meek inherit the earth."

6) A Nice Place To Visit
"A scared, angry little man who never got a break. Now he has everything he's ever wanted - and he's going to have to live with it for eternity."

7) The Shelter
"I mean all of us. A lot of naked, wild animals who put such a price on staying alive that they'll claw their neighbors to death just for the privilege. We were spared a bomb tonight, but I wonder.
I wonder if we weren't destroyed even without it."

8) The Encounter
"Europeans are always calling the natives 'boy' and moaning about the white man's burden. Well, the facts are: I'm a full-grown man, I work for a living, and I answer to 'Arthur,' 'Takamori,' and, believe it or not, sometimes to 'Mr. Takamori.'"

9) Number 12 Looks Just Like You
"Did you know that Dostoyevsky was an epileptic? He was ugly, he was deformed, but he wrote about beauty, about real beauty. These men wrote about life and about the dignity of the individual human spirit and about love."

10) Judgement Night
"To be damned is to have a fate like the people on that ship, to suffer as they suffer and to die as they die. They could die only once, but we could die a hundred million times. We could ride the ghost of that ship every night. Every night for eternity."

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.

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.
