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.

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.
