'You've Got Mail' Starring Tom Hanks And Meg Ryan Is The Perfect Fall Film

Remember all those stops to Starbucks or to any coffee shop just to have a quick cup of coffee and staying warm and cozy after that first sip?


If there is a film you want to feel the autumn vibes, then you definitely should watch "You've Got Mail" starring Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan! This 1998 romantic comedy will leave you smiling and laughing all the time.

Directed by Nora Ephron, "You've Got Mail" revolves around two people who have met online and have fallen in love with but little do they know they are business rivals. Meg Ryan plays Kathleen Kelly, who runs an independent bookstore called "The Shop Around the Corner." Tom Hanks plays Joe Fox, who runs the chain of bookstores called "Fox Books," threatening the business of Kelly's store. As the two bicker each other, the more they fall in love with each other. Tom Hanks reels the viewer into the autumn vibe when he tells Kathleen online: "Don't you love New York in the fall? It makes me want to buy school supplies. I would send you a bouquet of newly-sharpened pencils if I knew your name and address. On the other hand, this not knowing has its charms."

Doesn't this remind you of the time when you have to buy school supplies at the beginning of fall?

Another scene that gives us autumn vibes is when Kathleen catches a cold and is stuck in bed. Joe then visits her and discovers that she was a mess. Remember those days when you have to call in sick for school or work? In fact, autumn is known as the flu season. Furthermore, the famous coffee shop scene where Kathleen was told to meet her correspondent in Café Lalo was definitely an autumn-worthy moment.

Remember all those stops to Starbucks or to any coffee shop just to have a quick cup of coffee and staying warm and cozy after that first sip? If these points are checked off in your autumn vibe list, then "You've Got Mail" is undoubtedly the film just for 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.
