7 Things That Happen In Movies But Will Never Occur In Real Life
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel

Movies are dramatic and exaggerated. We all know that. But, sometimes there are just things that bother you because it's so blatantly unrealistic it hurts. It's this image that the movie is trying to portray, but I don't subscribe.

Waking up with your hair and makeup completely intact

When I wake up I look awful, my face is puffy and my hair is ratty. No one looks like their curls were just perfectly so.

Saying “call me” to a stranger...they definitely don’t have your number

Those scenes when someone drives by in a car and holds up their fingers like a phone. If that happened in real life, there's just no way you'd be able to contact them.

Setting a date but not exchanging information

When a boy says "I'll pick you up at 8," but doesn't know where their date lives and/or their phone number. Sure, they'll see you then.

Wearing cute pajamas

If anyone wants to know what girls really wear to bed, it's sweats. Maybe some pajama shorts they've had for years. Potentially just an XL t-shirt. It is not some cute, sexy matching set.

Also, wearing matching lingerie sets

Ok, this one like lowkey everyone aspires to be, but it's just not reality. Everyone would love to walk around wearing matching underwear sets all the time with an amazing body to show it off, but realistically there are more comfortable things to wear.

Leaving money on the table in a restaurant

No one does that all the time. No one even carries cash on them anymore. Even if they did, you think they'd have the exact change to cover the bill and tip? Probably not.

Women in apocalypse or action movies with one smudge of dirt on their faces

Sure. Your makeup is still perfect and you have one rip in your shirt. That's what I'd look like too if I was running for my life and fighting zombies and whatnot.

Coffee! Coffee! Coffee!

Coffee! Coffee! Coffee!

When I was in high school, I was the occasional coffee drinker, if you could call it that. I would drink Starbucks frappuccinos and iced mocha drinks, which were more like snacks than coffee, BUT they had coffee in them, so I said I drank coffee. I progressed from my love of “snack drinks" to a more general appreciation of coffee, and would have a cup of coffee once a week or so. My “cup of coffee" would consist of a little coffee and a lot of cream and sugar, but it was coffee nonetheless. Then I started college.

14 of the Most Revolutionary Short Films of All Time
JoinOneLove

Today's society places a ridiculous amount of importance on social media and what we see on our computer screens. Some of these short films you might have seen shared on Facebook. Some of them you may have never even heard of. Whatever the case may be, these productions have used thier position of power in our world today to spread a message. The messages vary from domestic violence, LGBTQ acceptance, self-love, the role of men in society to end the unfair treatment towards women and even the promotion of the furtherence of medical discovery in our country. Regardless of the message, each film advertises something that needs far more screen time than Victoria's Secret Fashion shows or Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Here are 14 of the best and most revolutionary short films to date:

Well, this school year has come to a close, and it's off to having fun in the sun. For college students, summer offers a few different options: get an internship somewhere AMAZING like NYC, India or somewhere else awesome, travel, stay in your college town or go home for the summer. Whatever the reasoning, many people do end up going home and living with their parents during the summer. Many things are different when you go home for the summer. After almost a whole year being an adult, it's time to return to your parent's home and follow rules that you threw to the wind the second you stepped on campus last fall. And you get to see all your old friends, the ones who came home anyway. You'll also see people you haven't talked to since you graduated that you were really okay with never seeing again. If you are going home for the summer, here are some things that will happen to you.
