10 Thoughts You Have While Watching Shameless

Warning: This show is dangerously addicting.

10 Thoughts You Have While Watching Shameless

Granted I'm only on season 4 at this point, these are ten things that I think about while I watch Shameless.

1) Why does Frank suck?

In the beginning, it's not hard to tell that Frank completely sucks. There's no denying it, however, there are glimpses when he shows some sort of compassion (even if it's for one millisecond). Overall, Frank ends up reverting back to his conniving ways, but some of the Gallaghers are able to break through to him.

2) How do V and Kev always work it out?

V and Kev are probably the most stable thing about the entire show so far. Although they've had their moments, they always seem to make up sooner rather than later. They are certainly a very open couple, all things considered, but they are perfect for each other and that's all that matters. V and Kev bring hope that things will get better.

3) Will things ever get better?

That brings me to my next question, "will things ever get better?" At this rate, it's looking pretty rough out there. Some how right when things start going well, hell comes back around, and something goes wrong. They always seem to figure things out though.

4) This is how people gain street smarts.

Honestly, all of the Gallaghers are intelligent. No, it's not your conventional form of intelligence, but they know how to survive and get what they need. They know how to live off of almost nothing, but still sustain the bare minimum to survive, and that's something admirable in itself.

5) What more could go wrong?

On top of wondering if things will ever get better, you will 1000% wonder what else could possibly go pretty much every episode.

6) Will Fiona ever find someone?

Fiona certainly has a type of guy that she gravitates towards, but that doesn't mean that she doesn't deserve to have someone that's crazy about her and really gets her. Time after time, I find myself asking if she'll ever find someone who really understands her and excites her all at the same time. That may be a lot to ask for.

7. Where will Debbie and Carl end up?

Currently, Debbie is a hurry to grow up, and with all the confusion with things at home and with boys, she's definitely having a tough time. Then there's Carl, he has always been the one who's been a little different out of the Gallagher bunch. He's really developed as a character. These two are the one's you really wonder what they'll end up like.

8. Will Ian ever be with someone who loves him and isn't afraid to show it?

Ian is such a sweet guy, and adding the dynamic of him being gay to a show like this is ground breaking. That being said, you will always wonder if he'll be with someone who really loves him for him and isn't afraid to show it, no matter where they are.

9. Why is this show so addicting?

I really wasn't sure if I'd enjoy this show, but it sounded intriguing. I can't stop watching this show, every time an episode ends, I'm clicking the remote to head right into the next episode. I haven't figured out why it's so addicting, but you really just want to know what happens next.

10. Can I be a Gallagher?

In the end, though you sit and watch their struggle, you can't help but ask, "Can I be a Gallagher?" This family is truly tight, regardless of what happens to them they always stick together and fight for one another. There's something to be said for a family like the Gallaghers, you may not necessarily want to be in their situation, but you certainly want to be around a group of people like them.

Now, if you haven't watched this show, and you're looking for a new binger, go watch this show. I can almost guarantee that you won't regret it by any means.

Black Friday is back to being Black Friday

This year, malls are standing up against Black Friday beginning on Thanksgiving. Doors won't be opening until Friday morning.


Last week my twitter feed was full of exclamations of how excited people were that our local mall, Westmoreland Mall would be closed on Thanksgiving Day this year. For those who work during the busy holiday days and hours, a celebration was in order. For the die-hard deal finders and shoppers though, they didn’t seem very happy.

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

There's been a recent boom in the popularity of vintage style looks and up-cycling thrifted finds to sell at, usually, an outrageous price. Is this ethical? Or does it defeat the whole purpose of thrifting in the first place?

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

One day, I was scrolling through Twitter and came across a tweet about upper-middle-class class people thrift shopping. I personally was against the up cycling/re-selling trend because I thought it to be greedy. Then, I began to see more and more tweets, and then stated to see ones about those who buy thrifted, name brand items and sell them for what they're actually worth instead of the very low price they got them for.

Holidays With the Family?

Should retail outlets close on holidays so their employees can be with their families?


For the past few years, having stores open on Thanksgiving has become a popular trend. The sales have started earlier on the day known as Gray Thursday. Now, the Mall of America has taken a bold stand and is closing its doors on Thanksgiving. They are very excited in giving the day back to their workers so they can spend time with their family.

Black Friday: Explained

Time to question this unofficial corporate holiday.

On a personal level, Black Friday has always confused me. Everyone just ate a ton and spent all day with their families—why would we want to go out and vigorously shop, fighting crowds? I totally see why other people want to go do it, but I’ve never quite understood the concept myself. While I’ve been Black Friday shopping once or twice, I don’t get that excited about it unless it’s an opportunity to spend time with family or friends. Don’t get me wrong; I am the queen of bargains. Still, I never seem to have the energy to go out into the jungle of shoppers early the day after Thanksgiving, or even immediately after Thanksgiving dinner. Many people, though—including my loved ones—are enthusiastic about Black Friday shopping, and it seems most other Americans are the same way. So, it’s worth looking at the reasons for this commercially-driven, unofficial American holiday.

#OptOutside This Black Friday

I am opting to go outside this Black Friday, and I hope you do so as well.

Ross Woodhall

The day after Thanksgiving has always been regarded by many as the beginning of the Christmas season. While not a federal holiday, many people take off work, spend time at home with their families, and enjoy the beginning of the holiday season. This Friday off turned into a prime opportunity to begin the never-ending chore of Christmas shopping. Soon it became one of the busiest shopping days a year, which companies capitalized on by bringing the best deals of the year to this day we know as Black Friday.
