WWE or World Wrestling Entertainment is one of the most popular shows on television for kids and adults alike. Yet, there is still a large majority of people who simply don't understand why people like WWE. I'm here to give you 10 reasons why you should start watching WWE. I don't expect you to religiously watch it, but instead to just give it a try.

1. It's the longest running weekly episodic television show in history.

That's right, WWE's Monday Night Raw is the longest running television series followed by WWE's Thursday Night Smackdown. This is great news for binge watchers. You can watch episodes for days, months and even years without running out of episodes.

2. It's fake... but who cares.

It's true, and I've heard it a million times, wrestling is fake. Trust me WWE fans know it's fake. It being fake only makes the show better! You get to watch two men or women intensely wrestle, beat each other up and not worry about one of them actually getting hurt.

3. They have catchy story lines.

Whether it's John Cena defending America against a Bulgarian Brute or a story of love being torn due to backstabbing co-workers. The story often changes keeping the viewers in mind, so every week you have something to look forward to.

4. The have live shows all across America.

From house shows to Monday Night Raw, Thursday Night Smackdown, WWE Superstars, and pay-per-views there are live shows every week. Not only that, but they travel across America so every fan has a chance to see their favorite WWE star live.

5. There's a wrestler for any fan.

From the good guys to the bad guys WWE has many stars. Divas, individuals who run the show, families who fight together and they all own the stage. You can't watch WWE and not like one of the many stars. There's a wrestler for any fan no matter what your taste there's at least one guy or girl you will like and root for the whole time.

6. Girls, it's not just men you'll be watching.

The Divas are a huge part of WWE. They have their own storylines, matches, feuds and friendships just the same as the male wrestlers. Not only that, but their matches are just as good as the men. They even have their own television show outside of WWE called "Total Divas," which is about their life outside of WWE.

7. You are not alone, with nearly 5 billion others who watch.

I speak the truth when I say WWE has over 5 billion fans who follow them through all forms of social media. WWE has more followers than MLB, NHL, NFL, NBA, ESPN, Nascar, Disney, Sony, Pepsi, HBO, Gatorade and has had more than 5 billion views on youtube in this past year alone. People love WWE. So if you're afraid of being one of the only people to like the sport, you're wrong because over a billion others love it.

8. WWE donates to multiple causes.

WWE donates millions of dollars to multiple charities very often. For example, two years ago they donated $1.2 million dollars to Boston University's CTE treatment program. Not only that but they have their very own line of Breast Cancer Awareness gear where all profits go to Susan G. Komen. To take it another step further, they donate to the Make-A-Wish foundation with WWE superstar John Cena granting the most make-a-wish wishes to over 500 children. That was just a few of the many donations they make daily.

9. They have their own version of Netflix.

When you fall in love with WWE you're most likely going to fall in love with the stars, which then means you'll want to keep watching even more than just Monday Night Raw and Thursday Night Smackdown. Well worry not, they have their own version of Netflix called The WWE Network. With an endless amount of shows all featuring your favorite superstars in a different light. Whether it's reality TV, a comedy of superstars pranking each other, or even watching the future of WWE stars and the training they endure before actually making it to the show. The list is endless, there's a show for every fan.

10. They love their audience.

WWE absolutely loves and thanks their audience every show every week. Whether they thank them through social media, videos they play during the shows and even having superstars thank them. They always show their audience how much they appreciate them and it's truly sincere.

So if wasn't the fact that you could binge watch WWE for years, or the fact that over half a billion people love WWE or even the fact that they absolutely adore their audience I hope that at least one of these facts has made you want to try WWE. There are tons of reasons why to watch WWE, and even if it takes you a few watches to get into the show, I highly recommend giving it a try because you will not be disappointed.

The Junie B. Jones series was a big part of my childhood. They were the first chapter books I ever read. On car trips, my mother would entertain my sister and me by purchasing a new Junie B. Jones book and reading it to us. My favorite part about the books then, and still, are how funny they are. Junie B. takes things very literally, and her (mis)adventures are hilarious. A lot of children's authors tend to write for children and parents in their books to keep the attention of both parties. Barbara Park, the author of the Junie B. Jones series, did just that. This is why many things Junie B. said in Kindergarten could be applied to her experiences in college, as shown here.

When Junie B. introduces herself hundreds of times during orientation week:

“My name is Junie B. Jones. The B stands for Beatrice. Except I don't like Beatrice. I just like B and that's all." (Junie B. Jones and the Stupid Smelly Bus, p. 1)

When she goes to her first college career fair:

"Yeah, only guess what? I never even heard of that dumb word careers before. And so I won't know what the heck we're talking about." (Junie B. Jones and her Big Fat Mouth, p. 2)

When she thinks people in class are gossiping about her:

“They whispered to each other for a real long time. Also, they kept looking at me. And they wouldn't even stop." (Junie B., First Grader Boss of Lunch, p. 66)

When someone asks her about the library:

“It's where the books are. And guess what? Books are my very favorite things in the whole world!" (Junie B. Jones and the Stupid Smelly Bus, p. 27)

When she doesn't know what she's eating at the caf:

“I peeked inside the bread. I stared and stared for a real long time. 'Cause I didn't actually recognize the meat, that's why. Finally, I ate it anyway. It was tasty...whatever it was." (Junie B., First Grader Boss of Lunch, p. 66)

When she gets bored during class:

“I drew a sausage patty on my arm. Only that wasn't even an assignment." (Junie B. Jones Loves Handsome Warren, p. 18)

When she considers dropping out:

“Maybe someday I will just be the Boss of Cookies instead!" (Junie B., First Grader Boss of Lunch, p. 76)

When her friends invite her to the lake for Labor Day:

“GOOD NEWS! I CAN COME TO THE LAKE WITH YOU, I BELIEVE!" (Junie B. Jones Smells Something Fishy, p. 17)

When her professor never enters grades on time:

“I rolled my eyes way up to the sky." (Junie B., First Grader Boss of Lunch, p. 38)

When her friends won't stop poking her on Facebook:


“Do not poke me one more time, and I mean it." (Junie B. Jones Smells Something Fishy, p. 7)

When she finds out she got a bad test grade:

“Then my eyes got a little bit wet. I wasn't crying, though." (Junie B. Jones and the Stupid Smelly Bus, p. 17)

When she isn't allowed to have a pet on campus but really wants one:

“FISH STICK! I NAMED HIM FISH STICK BECAUSE HE'S A FISH STICK, OF COURSE!" (Junie B. Jones Smells Something Fishy, p. 59)

When she has to walk across campus in the dark:

“There's no such thing as monsters. There's no such thing as monsters." (Junie B. Jones Has a Monster Under Her Bed, p. 12)

When her boyfriend breaks her heart:

“I am a bachelorette. A bachelorette is when your boyfriend named Ricardo dumps you at recess. Only I wasn't actually expecting that terrible trouble." (Junie B. Jones Is (almost) a Flower Girl, p. 1)

When she paints her first canvas:


"And painting is the funnest thing I love!" (Junie B. Jones and her Big Fat Mouth, p. 61)

When her sorority takes stacked pictures:

“The biggie kids stand in the back. And the shortie kids stand in the front. I am a shortie kid. Only that is nothing to be ashamed of." (Junie B. Jones Has a Monster Under Her Bed, p. 7)

When she's had enough of the caf's food:

“Want to bake a lemon pie? A lemon pie would be fun, don't you think?" (Junie B. Jones Has a Monster Under Her Bed p. 34)

When she forgets about an exam:

“Speechless is when your mouth can't speech." (Junie B. Jones Loves Handsome Warren, p. 54)

When she finds out she has enough credits to graduate:

“A DIPLOMA! A DIPLOMA! I WILL LOVE A DIPLOMA!" (Junie B. Jones is a Graduation Girl p. 6)

The First Time My Mistakes No Longer Controlled My Life

Mistakes suck, and though I've conquered a few, I'm still learning.

The whistle blows as the team cheers on.

My heart pounds as if it will burst out of my chest at any given moment and I taste the salty sweat trickling down my face. I must serve over the net, I must get it in, I must ace my opponent or I will fail. Fear.

In his first inaugural speech, President Franklin D. Roosevelt famously stated, "the only thing we have to fear is fear itself." Such a statement proves powerful to the matured minds of society; however, in the minds of some adolescents, this declaration appears somewhat foolish, as numerous "threats" ignite fear, thus causing teens to grow anxious.

A major cause for fear in the rising generation takes form in failure. In the eyes of these people, making a simple mistake paves the way towards absolute failure; therefore, perfectionists constantly walk on eggshells attempting to do the impossible: avoid human error. This mentality gives way to constant stress and overall disappointment, as perfection does not apply to human beings. If one can come to the realization that not one person can attain perfection, they can choose to live life in ease, for they no longer have to apply constant pressure upon themselves to master excellence. The fear of failure will no longer encumber their existence, and they can overcome situations that initially brought great anxiety. I too once put great pressure on myself to maintain perfection, and as a result, felt constantly burdened by my mistakes. However, when I realized the inevitability of those mistakes, it opened the door for great opportunities. The first time I recognized that failure serves as a tool for growth allowed me to no longer fear my mistakes, and instead utilize them for my own personal growth.

The whistle blows as the team cheers on. My heart pounds as if it will burst out of my chest at any given moment, and I taste the salty sweat trickling down my face. I must serve over the net, I must get it in, I must ace my opponent. As hard as I try, I fail; as the ball flies straight into the net and thuds obnoxiously onto the gym floor, so does my confidence. I feel utter defeat, as I know my fate. My eyes water as my coach immediately pulls me from the game, sits me on the bench, and tells me to "get my head into the game" instead of dwindling on past errors. From then on I rarely step foot on the court, and instead, ride the bench for the remainder of the season. I feel defeated. However, life does not end, and much to my surprise, this mistake does not cause failure in every aspect of my life. Over time, I gradually realize that life does not end just because of failure. Instead, mistakes and failure pave the way toward emotional development and allows one to build character. In recognizing that simple slip-ups do not lead to utter failure, I gain perspective: one's single mistake does not cause their final downfall. Thus, this epiphany allowed for my mental growth and led me to overcome once challenging obstacles.

Instead of viewing mistakes as burdens, one should utilize them as motivation for future endeavors. The lesson proves simple: all can learn from their mistakes. However, it is a matter of choosing to learn from these mistakes that decide one's future growth. Instead of pushing faults away, I now acknowledge them in order to progress. Before coming to such a realization, I constantly "played it safe" in sports, fearing that giving my best effort would lead to greater error. I did not try, and as a result, I rarely failed.

Although such a mentality brought forth limited loss in terms of overall team success, it also brought forth limited, individual success. Today, fear of failure no longer controls life on the court. I use my mistakes as motivation to get better; instead of dwindling on an error made five minutes prior, I focus on the form needed to correct it. As a result, skills will constantly improve, instead of regress. Thus, errors serve as blessings, as it is through these errors in which one can possess the motivation to better themselves.

For some, fear acts as an ever-present force that controls every aspect of life. In particular, the fear of failure encumbers perfectionists, as the mere thought of failing causes great anxieties. In the past, I have fell victim to the fear of committing a mistake, and as a result, could not go through life without feeling an overwhelming sense of defeat. However, in a moment of what appeared to be a great failure, I finally recognized that life does not end due to one mistake, let alone one million. Instead, mistakes pave the way toward personal development and provide essential motivation to succeed in everyday life. Without mistakes, it proves difficult to grow in character. One must first learn to accept their faults before they can appreciate their best qualities. Thus, the fear of failure inhibits the growth of an individual; therefore, all must come to the realization that essentialness of mistakes, as they allow for the further development of overall character.
