10 Reasons Why Netflix Is Like A Boyfriend, But Better

1. Netflix is always available

Wherever you are, and whenever you may need it, Netflix will make time for you. Even on a short notice, Netflix is always readily available on your phone, computer, and TV. This means that you can either take it with you on-the-go or appreciate it from the comfort of your own bed.

2. Netflix knows you better than you know yourself

Netflix always knows best. When you are bored or uncertain of what to do with your life, Netflix provides you with a list of shows that are tailored to your own likes and habits. Like a gift that just keeps on giving, Netflix never fails to recommend new shows and movies for your viewing pleasure.

3. Netflix doesn’t care what you look like

Unlike a real boyfriend, Netflix doesn't ever care what you look like. It accepts you as you are, even on the weekends where you wear the same groutfit for 48 hours straight.

4. Netflix supports your junk food habits

Netflix will never make you feel insecure about your dietary habits, so forget about that salad and tear open a bag of chips (or 5 bags...). Also, it is no secret that real boyfriends eat A LOT, but when it is just you and Netflix, you will never have to share your precious junk food with anyone.

5. Netflix likes it when you are clingy

Unlike actual boys, Netflix will never ask you for space. Netflix likes it when you are clingy, for its sole purpose in life is to keep you feeling occupied and satisfied. What a keeper...

6. Netflix is forgiving

Unlike a real boyfriend, Netflix will not get mad if you ignore it for a while. It understands that you have a very busy life, and will always welcome you back with open-arms after being on a break.

7. Netflix doesn't force you to go out and be social

Having a boyfriend can sometime be demanding, but Netflix is not. Netflix will never force you to go to a party or spend time with its friends. It respects your need for alone time, and will continue to play new episodes until you are ready to enter back into the real world.

8. Netflix never forgets to check in on you

“Are you sure that you are still watching?”

9. Netflix is never boring

Some relationships can get boring, but Netflix knows how to keep you hooked. It remembers to “mix things up” from time to time, with the addition of new seasons, shows, and movies. So spontaneous!

10. Netflix won’t leave you

Boyfriends come and go, but Netflix is here to stay. It will never leave you when times get hard, and will always stand by your side if a real boy breaks your heart. Overall, Netflix is a reliable, lifelong companion.

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.
