What Did You Think Of Fantastic Beasts?

I though it was bomb AF.

What Did You Think Of Fantastic Beasts?

My love for Harry Potter is well-documented. So imagine my delight when JK Rowling announced that there was to be another movie in this wizarding world, centered around the author of one of Harry's textbooks! Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is about the author of a book by the same name. The author is Newt Scamander, and he is a beautiful little character who abounds in awkwardness and love for all of his magical creatures.

I had very high expectations for this movie, as it is the first one of the Harry Potter world that didn't have a book that I could read beforehand. Like the rest of the world, I had no idea what the plot would be or even what characters would be present. Not only did the film meet and exceed all of my expectations, it also set up a plot line for what we are told is going to be four more movies! I'm stoked.

Part of the reason the movie is so great is that it manages to maintain the magic of the series, but also be original in and of itself. We get to see Grindelwald, the original dark lord. He appears in the Deathly Hallows movies, and we learn that he and ole Dumbledore were besties back in the day before a fight between them hurt Dumbledore's sister. In Fantastic Beasts, Grindelwald seems to be at the height of his power, post-Dumbledore fight and causing a lot of mayhem. I'm excited to see Johnny Depp's portrayal of Grindelwald and what all of his story we will get to see.

Another awesome part was the introduction of something called the Obscurial, what forms when a magical child tries to suppress their powers. I freaking love Ezra Miller, and the way he acted out Credence was super creepy and awesome. It looked a little demonic possession when he turned into the Obscurus, so that was a little weird. To tell you the truth, the whole movie was darker than I expected it to be. That isn't necessarily a bad thing, though.

If you have seen the movie, I hope you agree that it was bomb. If you haven't seen it, what are you waiting for?

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.
