Reasons Anna Kendrick Just Gets It

You're gonna miss me when I'm gone.

Reasons Anna Kendrick Just Gets It
Esquire Magazine

While ordering my food at a restaurant in St. Augustine, Florida, I was asked who I would want to play me in a movie. For some, this question may have needed some thought. For me, however, I immediately knew my answer -- Anna Kendrick. She has been one of my favorite actresses for a long time, even before the first "Pitch Perfect" came out. I remember seeing her in "Twilight" and immediately falling in love with her. Like me, she is a short person who has to deal with others joking about her height and the hardship of buying clothes for her size. She knows the struggle is real when everyone towers over her on a day to day basis. Her Twitter even mentions the trials of being a tiny person.

We also share the love of "Beauty and the Beast" and aspire to be Belle at some point in our lives. We have found the love of music and theater from the Disney movie. Like many other girls, she also has aspired to be a Disney Princess. She has been able to accomplish this goal on a few occasions as Ariel and Cinderella.

I also love that she is comfortable with who she is. She's not afraid to be blunt and share her opinion with others. To balance this characteristic, she is also a humble person who learns from her mistakes and is always looking to grow and improve. She is a great person to look up to because there is nothing fake about her. She embraces her awkwardness and goes with it, rather than looking for others to constantly change her.

If you know me, then you know that I fail at jokes. I try my hardest to be funny, but I ultimately fail every single time. Anna on the other hand, has the best sense of humor as if it just rolls of her tongue. She doesn't even have to try and she's hilarious. One of my favorite moments was when she competed against John Kraskinski in the television show "Lip Sync Battle." She just went for it and didn't look back. Many actresses are afraid of taking risks, but she just goes for them head on which I strongly admire. I love that she is a real person. She lives her life the way she wants to. Even her movie characters give great advice.

She's a great actress because she is genuine. She works hard and is honest with not only herself, but others around her. She's caring and talented. Plus, she loves being lazy like the rest of us.

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.
