Why 'The Lion King' is the Best Disney Movie of All Time

Disney's "The Lion King" came out in 1994. So like me, this film is 21 years old and still going strong. As a child, I watched it multiple times a day, sang-a-long to every song, collected every toy, and interpretive danced to the soundtrack in my living room while jumping off a "pride rock" of pillows. I lived and breathed this movie. Its depth, fun, adventure, emotional twists and turns, plot, and all of the following reasons have earned it the title of best Disney movie.

1. It stars lions.

2. There is adventure and adrenaline pumping moments.

3. There are moments that will still make you tear up 21 years later.

One of the worst moments of my life.

4. There is lion love.

5. The soundtrack is a phenom.

6. You get to see what it's like to be best friends with a meerkat and warthog.

7. The mighty and majestic King Mufasa and Queen Sarabi.

8. Adorable baby lion cubs.

9. This scene which actually made you want to consider trying a bug.

10. The beautiful home of Timon and Pumbaa.

11. The "Hakuna Matata" lifestyle.

12. But also, the important message to be true to who you are and your sense of duty.

13. Nala is a tough bitch.

14. It taught us real life lessons like sometimes your Uncle can be a sociopath and should not be allowed to run the Pridelands.

15. Jokes that we understand as a more mature audience.

Lol, JK.

16. Rafiki's wisdom.

17. Rafiki being an asshole.

18. You can run from your past forever or you can learn from it.

The realest lesson in the game.

19. How pumped you got when Simba was returning home to f*** shit up.

20. This scene which made you wish there was a "Lion King 1.1, 1.2, 1.3, 1.4, 1.6, 1.7, 1.8, and 1.9" so we could see Simba through each of his life stages.

21. Simba was kinda hot, tbh.

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.
