10 Shows I Probably Should've Watched By Now


10 Shows I Probably Should've Watched By Now

The world of television has dramatically changed in the 21st century. Shows got grittier, darker, and more violent. Characters became more and more complicated. Some shows could even be passed off as movies due to the increased budget and quality Instead of "The Andy Griffith Show", we have "The Office". Instead of "Lost in Space", we have "Game of Thrones".

With this new era of television and the level of accessibility that everyone has -- why haven't I gotten around to watching these shows yet?

1. "Rick and Morty"

It's been hard to find a show that fills the gap that "Futurama" left me with after it ended -- and I feel like this one is the one! I've seen clips of the show, played the apps that are themed after episodes. And yet, I haven't even seen one full episode.

2. "The Walking Dead"

I'm a sucker for zombies -- "The Last of Us", "The Evil Dead", "Left 4 Dead", you name it. I've even played Telltale's game, set in the same universe. But even after six seasons, I just haven't gotten around to watching it.

3. "Breaking Bad"

I've been meaning to watch this show for six years. I have no clue why I've still avoided spoilers.

4. "Mad Men"

Considering that I'm a fan of shows taking place in different time periods and a fan of dramas -- I should've gone through this already. Also...

5. "House of Cards"

Considering that this is also a drama (and a political drama at that), there's no excuse why I haven't gotten around to it. Also, Kevin Spacey.

6. "Fargo"

I loved the 1996 movie directed by the Coen Brothers -- so naturally I probably should've seen this by now.

5. "Veep"

If the critics' approval couldn't get me to watch this show, then the relevancy to this year's presidential election should've convinced me.

6. "The Sopranos"

Anything I've heard about this show has come from my friends, who have been hammering me to watch this show for years. Sorry, guys!

7. "The Wire"

I've heard that this is one of the "greatest shows of all time" -- so it's only natural that I need to see this at some point, right? It's set and filmed in the Baltimore area, which is local territory for me. From what I've heard, it takes a deeper look into the inner systems of the city, which could be extremely interesting to watch.

8. "Curb Your Enthusiasm"

A comedy which is widely considered to be the spiritual successor to one of the quintessential sitcoms of the 1990s, "Seinfeld". And since I love Seinfeld -- I should love the same type of show.

9. "Twin Peaks"

With the release of "Stranger Things" (which I did watch, actually) on Netflix this summer comes the reminder that I should've watched this show a long time ago.

10. "True Detective"

Even though I heard that the second season of this show was kind of lame, the reputation behind the first season should be enough to get me to watch.

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.

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
