Well, seven seasons later and now we wait for the last few days until the end of Voltron: Legendary Defender in its entirety. After the Season 8 trailer dropped, ominously and gloriously, fans rallied from far and wide to mourn the loss of a great show... and to debate it.

Will Haggar transform back intoHonerva? Will Lotor return? Who was the mysterious Altean in the last episode of season 7? Will Keith and Lance get together? Lance and Allura, etc.? Where did all the Alteans that Lotor was hiding from Zarkon go? Are the MFE pilots the next Paladins of Voltron?

Voltron came onto my radar in 2017 after the second season was released on Netflix. To be honest, I found out about the show from Tumblr and was skeptical at first, but it's become one of my favorite animated TV shows.

The first reason I watched it was because Lauren Montgomery and Joaquim Dos Santos were named as showrunnersand are well known for their work on both Avatar: The Last Airbender and its sequel, The Legend of Korraas storyboard artist and producer. Second, I fell in love with the animation but, well, how could you not? And lastly, the characters. With a great team, great artists, and a great cast of characters (Like Jeremy Shada who also played Finn in Adventure Time, and Steven Yeun who plays Glenn in The Walking Dead) and an awesome plot.

Voltron follows the plot of the original show from the '80s by the same name. It follows a group of teens into space to defend the universe from alien tyranny by using a giant crime-fighting robot made of robot lions. I know, it's awesome. I'd heard of and seen a few episodes of the '80s version of Voltron and I can say that this reboot is one for the record books. A job well done. Well, it's been a good seven seasons, and now the last has come upon us.

I'm interested to see what other shenanigans the Paladins have in store for us in Season 8, especially since Allura's last line in the trailer states, "This is our only chance to save all of existence."

So, why should you watch the final season of Voltron: Legendary Defender? Guess you'll have to watch the first six seasons to find out?

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.
