It's Time To Head To Walmart, But Not For What You Would Think

In recent months, all of our favorite hobbies and pastimes have been put on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but as some things are beginning to slowly reopen, other facilities and businesses are being forced to take it slower or hold off. Some places are finding new ways of bringing us entertainment. Walmart, on the other hand, is bringing back a classic: the drive-in movie.

This is part of Walmart's initiative to aid kids and families in making the most of the summer, mid-pandemic. They teamed up with celebrities such as Lebron James, Neil Patrick Harris, Idina Menzel, and Drew Barrymore to launch an online entertainment program called "Camp by Walmart." These celebs take the time to create instructional videos in fitness, arts and crafts, or other activities for kids to follow along. The program will offer over 200 activities throughout the summer for families to tune into. It can be accessed through the Walmart mobile app's "Services" tab, and the software is created to adjust to the individual child's interests throughout the program, making the activities and experience unique for everyone who chooses to tune in!

For those of us who are missing checking out the hottest new film to hit the box office, Walmart is also offering drive-in movie theaters at select locations! Walmart is converting the parking lots of 160 supercenters into safe, no-contact drive-in theater locations for guests, and even better, all of the showings are free! All you have to do is reserve your tickets ahead of time on the Walmart Drive-in website.

They have a great list of films to show, including the original 1984 Ghostbusters film, The Wizard of Oz (1939), Spy Kids (2001), Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse (2018), and more. Each vehicle only needs to reserve one ticket, and they have tickets to sell until the designated parking is full! Gates open at 6:00 p.m. for parking and the film showings begin at 7:30. All you need is to do is reserve your ticket, head to the movie, find a parking spot, and tune your car's FM radio to the designated station for the film's audio. Worried about snacks? No need! Walmart associates will bring your concessions directly to your vehicle for you.

If this sounds like a great deal to you, you should check out one of Walmart's 320 showings located all across the country! Check out their website for the location nearest to you!

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.
