This holiday break was much needed for many of us. With that being said, I can probably assume what a lot of us are doing over break. We are either raiding the fridge or watching TV. I like a wide variety of TV shows so I thought I would recommend some for people to binge watch during their break! Hope you enjoy them:

1. How to Get Away with Murder (Netflix)

When I first heard of this show, I didn't think it would last long, but it is actually a great show. Viola Davis plays the lead, Annalise, who is a law professor. She selects five of her students to intern at her firm and they soon become part of a murder plot. The show focuses on each of the main characters lives as they handle their own life drama as well as what their law professor throws at them.

2. Please Like Me (Hulu)

In this Australian comedy, Joshua Thomas struggles with a mother who is highly depressed, coming out of the closet and a father who is too attached to what he is doing with his life. This show adds humor to his life as he tries to help himself, his friends and his parents. The great thing about this show is that is focuses on more things than him being gay. Most shows with a gay lead seem to make the whole show based on homosexuality when it should only be a small part of the plot.

3. Broad City (Hulu)

This show is absolutely hilarious. It follows Ilana and Abbi, two women in their mid-twenties. Ilana is more into getting into reckless situations and also getting out of work. Abbi is attempting to become an artist but is always pulled into Ilanas adventure. If that isn't enough. Hillary Rodham Clinton makes an appearance in the third season.

4. Chewing Gum (Netflix)

This show is also very hilarious. It follows Tracey, a virgin who is in a committed relationship with someone who treats her poorly and is also very religious. She soon breaks free and becomes more mischievous through funny adventures.

5. Rupaul's Drag Race (Hulu)

No, it has nothing to do with cars. This show is a drag competition where 14 drag queens compete to become America's next drag superstar. It is quite entertaining to watch this show. Each week the queens have to be put through a challenge that will test their humor, elegance, and other skills. The bottom two queens must lip sync to a song "for their lives." Rupaul is the host since he is probably the most famous drag queen in the world.

6. Parks & Recreation (Netflix)

This show is amazing to say the least. It follows Leslie Knope, who is devoted to the parks and recreation department of Pawnee, Indiana. The show has hilarious situations and I would highly recomend it if you have seen the office.

7. American Horror Story

You must be living under a rock if you have never heard of this show. Each season has a different theme and a different story for each of the characters. My favorite season is season 3, Coven, which has to do with witches.

8. Freaks & Geeks

This show is from 1999 but still great. Lindsay, part of the so called "freaks" and her brother, part of the "geeks." They get into tricky situations with their friends and try not to get caught with the consequences.

9. The Crown

This Netflix original is about Queen Elizabeth at age 25 after her wedding. She soon gets the news that her father is dead and has to deal with soon becoming the queen. The show discusses sexism through her husband.

10.Difficult People

This comedy is great if you have cynical humor. It follows two best friends as they try to make it in New York as an actor and as a show commentator. It is the perfect show to watch if you can relate to being blunt, honest and a dark sense of humor.

I'm The Girl Without A 'Friend Group'

And here's why I'm OK with it

Little things remind me all the time.

For example, I'll be sitting in the lounge with the people on my floor, just talking about how everyone's days went. Someone will turn to someone else and ask something along the lines of, "When are we going to so-and-so's place tonight?" Sometimes it'll even be, "Are you ready to go to so-and-so's place now? Okay, we'll see you later, Taylor!"

It's little things like that, little things that remind me I don't have a "friend group." And it's been like that forever. I don't have the same people to keep me company 24 hours of the day, the same people to do absolutely everything with, and the same people to cling to like glue. I don't have a whole cast of characters to entertain me and care for me and support me. Sometimes, especially when it feels obvious to me, not having a "friend group" makes me feel like a waste of space. If I don't have more friends than I can count, what's the point in trying to make friends at all?

I can tell you that there is a point. As a matter of fact, just because I don't have a close-knit clique doesn't mean I don't have any friends. The friends I have come from all different walks of life, some are from my town back home and some are from across the country. I've known some of my friends for years, and others I've only known for a few months. It doesn't really matter where they come from, though. What matters is that the friends I have all entertain me, care for me, and support me. Just because I'm not in that "friend group" with all of them together doesn't mean that we can't be friends to each other.

Still, I hate avoiding sticking myself in a box, and I'm not afraid to seek out friendships. I've noticed that a lot of the people I see who consider themselves to be in a "friend group" don't really venture outside the pack very often. I've never had a pack to venture outside of, so I don't mind reaching out to new people whenever.

I'm not going to lie, when I hear people talking about all the fun they're going to have with their "friend group" over the weekend, part of me wishes I could be included in something like that. I do sometimes want to have the personality type that allows me to mesh perfectly into a clique. I couldn't tell you what it is about me, but there is some part of me that just happens to function better one-on-one with people.

I hated it all my life up until very recently, and that's because I've finally learned that not having a "friend group" is never going to be the same as not having friends.

The Football World Loses One Of Its Finest Players

Bart Starr passed away and NFL players, coaches, and fans all mourn the loss of the Packer legend, but his life and career will live on in hearts of Packer nation forever.

Bart Starr passed away at the age of 85 in Birmingham, Alabama. The NFL lost a great player. The Green Bay Packers lost a hero. And, the world lost a true gentleman. Starr's legacy has surpassed his accomplishments on the gridiron. He inspired not only his peers but the generations that have come after him. He is — and always — will be remembered as a Hall of Famer, a champion, and a Packer.


Bart Starr was a Packers legend. Starr led Green Bay to six division titles and five world championships. As the quarterback of Vince Lombardi's offense, he kept the machine going and executed the plays like no other. His mastery of the position was a large part of the Packers success in the 1960s. Starr was also the perfect teammate for the perfect team. His leadership put him in command of the Packers. Starr's time in Green Bay will not be forgotten by former players, coaches, and the fans.

Bart Starr's resume is rivaled by few in NFL history. He played in 10 postseason games and won 9 of them. He led the Packers to victory in Super Bowls I and II and won the MVP award in both games. He was the MVP of the league in 1966 and was named to the NFL All-Decade Team of the 1960s. The Packers retired his number 15 and Starr has been inducted into the Packers and Pro Football Hall of Fame.


After his playing days, Starr would become the head coach of the Packers. He could not repeat the success he had on the field from the 1960s teams. His coaching years do not take away from his legacy as one of the all-time great Packers. Starr was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1977.

One of Starr's last visits to Lambeau field was on a cold November night in 2015. Starr and his wife attended a ceremony in which the Packers retired Brett Favre's jersey number. Starr was the perfect personification of what it meant to be a Packer. His most heroic moment came in the 1967 NFL Championship Game. The Ice Bowl came down to a third and goal in Lambeau Field's south endzone against the Dallas Cowboys. Starr came to the sidelines and bravely told Vince Lombardi that he can sneak it in for a game-winning touchdown. Lombardi then replied, "Run it, and let's get the hell out of here." Starr ran a quarterback sneak for the game-winner and the Packers were off to Super Bowl II. Without Starr, Green Bay would not have won a second straight Super Bowl. His leadership in big game moments will live with Packers fans for a lifetime.

Vince Lombardi: A Football Life - The Ice Bowl

Starr leaves behind his wife Cherry, his son, and three granddaughters. Packers fans will have a tight grip on the memories Bart Starr and the 60s teams created. Starr left behind a template for being a Green Bay Packer. He also left a template for being a good man and a gentleman of the game of football. He was a competitor and a leader. Packer nation mourns for the loss of one of the finest human beings the game has seen.
