10 Binge-Worthy Netflix Series To Beat the Heat
Carson Armstrong

It may only be the beginning of summer, but the temperatures are quickly rising. While I love spending time outdoors and soaking up the sun, I also need a break from the humidity and the sweat.

When you need a few hours inside, here are some Netflix series that will keep you company in front of the air conditioning.

1. You

A thrilling story interwoven with literary references and kidnappings, "You" is bound to be a show you can't stop watching. I would know, I watched all ten episodes in less than four days.

2. Sex Education

This show is a little controversial in nature because of the topics it deals with. However, it represents real problems that teenagers have pertaining to sex and society. A show that deals with sex education? ACCURATELY? A no-brainer.

3. Parenthood

This series is a little longer but well worth the watch. It portrays a large family and each of the modern problems they face. It is very heart warming and emotional. I'm forewarning you, tissues need to be present towards the end.

4. Jane the Virgin

One of my personal favorites, this show sounds like it should be frilly and full of girly drama. "Jane the Virgin", however, includes multiple murders, drug rings, amnesia, accidental pregnancies, and love triangles, like any good drama should. It is a modern, American take on a telenovela and is seriously worth watching.

5. Dead To Me

I am not quite finished with this one yet but it is full of suspense. A humorous yet thrilling plot with emphasis on romance, murder, and friendships, it's bound to leave you wanting more.

6. Santa Clarita Diet

A modern tale of zombies and how they come to be, "Santa Clarita Diet" explores how being a zombie affects your personal life, including your family, your job, and even your free time activities. It is light-hearted and humorous while also maintaining the horror aspect that you'd expect from a show in the zombie genre.

7. Grace and Frankie.

This show explores family dynamics and friendships after divorce. It is very humorous and relatable.

8. Master of None

This show is little memories written by Aziz Ansari about his life. It is lighthearted and humorous while also addressing modern problems. Aziz Ansari truly hit it out of the park with this series.

9. Dear White People

I have been waiting for a new season of this show for what seems like forever. It is extremely humorous and explores problems that minority students have on campus and in society in general. It is a well structured critique piece.

10. Black Mirror

While I am aware that this is an extremely popular series, there will be new episodes released shortly! While you wait you can either catch up on or rewatch the series that literally will have you thinking about society and the critiques that the show is trying to pose.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

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.
