10 TV Shows Every Woman In Her 20s Must Watch

10 TV Shows Every Woman In Her 20s Must Watch

Trust me, you'll be as addicted as I am to these shows.

My generation is definitely the Netflix generation. We love to binge watch every possible show that we can possibly relate to and, not only that, we love to fantasize what our lives would be like in shows that aren't so practical in our every day lives. Going along with this, I am presenting you all with a list of, not only some of my favorite TV shows, but some that I think the women of my generation should take the time to watch or, you know, binge watch as much as you can as soon as possible. Some of these shows I have related to personally, while others are not so closely related to my life, even though I wish I was Daenarys from Game of Thrones. Check it out!

10. Chasing Life

Even though this show was super short lived, I fell in love with the first season. Without giving too many spoilers away, Chasing Life is about a 24 year old journalist named April Carver (Italia Ricci) who discovers she has leukemia. The show follows the ups and downs of April’s experience with cancer, her work, her love life, and her family life. While watching this show had me laughing and crying, I also learned that life is not always what it seems and, no matter how hard you try, things may not go the way that you want them to. Chasing Life taught me to live every single day without regret.

9. iZombie

I discovered this show on a rainy Sunday and binge-watched the whole thirteen episode, first season in a matter of two days. Impressive, I know. iZombie, as strange of a concept as it is, is a fantastic TV show and it may even have you squirming a little in your seat. Picture this, a girl goes to a party and, well, dies then wakes up as a zombie. Pretty fun, right? It gets better. Liz (Rose McIver) is the main character and she is a pretty rad medical resident who uses her zombie powers to help the police solve murders. I seriously suggest watching this show, just don’t eat any brains!

8. Greek

Greek just might be my guiltiest of guilty pleasures. And no, it’s not just because I’m a sucker for Cappie (Scott Michael Foster). This show is just full of drama between sororities and fraternities. Even though some of the sorority girls in this show were kind of unrealistic in their behavior, the main female lead, Casey (Spencer Grammer), is a pretty powerful character. She’s in a leadership position at her sorority, not to mention the fact that she works with Panhellenic to create Greek unity amongst all of the sororities and fraternities. If you’re looking for a fun watch with no strings attached, you should watch Greek!

7. Reign

Reign is a TV show about the fictitious life of Mary Queen of Scots (Adelaide Kane) while she is living in the French Court. Let me just say that Mary is kind of a badass. Not only is she fighting against the French to save her home country of Scotland, she married into French royalty and is saving her country on step at a time.

6. Veronica Mars

If you’re looking for a good mystery, then look no further than Veronica Mars. Veronica Mars follows the everyday life of, you guessed it, Veronica Mars (Kristen Bell). She’s the best private detective around and she kind of kicks ass at her job. Veronica is not easily intimidated by her male counterparts and she is the one who typically outshines them. Watch as she takes down bad guys and lives a, well, fairly normal everyday life.

5. One Tree Hill

I’m sorry, but how could I not put One Tree Hill on here? For most woman my age and a bit older, this show was iconic. Watching the main characters Brooke (Sophia Bush), Haley (Bethany Joy Lenz), Peyton (Hilarie Burton), Nathan (James Lafferty), and Lucas (Chad Michael Murray) go from high school to full-fledged adults was a pretty big part of my teen years. Plus, I pretty much aspired to be Haley and Peyton. Even though their high school years were bumpy, the characters ended up all being very successful afterwards, which had a pretty good influence on my life.

4. The 100

The 100 is an amazing show. If you’re in the mood for a dystopian action-adventure, this is the show for you. One hundred kids fall from their home, which is a space station, and end up on Earth which is practically destroyed from radiation. Clarke (Eliza Taylor) leads her and her fellow 100, trying to keep them safe as well as trying to create a sustainable lifestyle on Earth. Let’s just say it’s not that easy for them and you’re going to have to watch the show to fully understand what I mean!

3. How I Met Your Mother

How I Met Your Mother is one of the best shows of all time, in my opinion. Not only are the characters great and hilarious, the whole concept of the TV series is just awesome. When someone asks me if I think I am a Robin (Cobie Smulders) or a Lily (Alyson Hannigan), I always say that I’m somewhere between the two. Although, I wasn’t a huge fan of the ending, I still loved the show overall. We all need a little Barney (Neil Patrick Harris) in our lives.

2. Grey’s Anatomy

Grey’s had me hooked from the first season. I spent about two month watching season one through twelve on Netflix and now I only want more, more, more! This show is packed with powerful women and men who rock the fictional medical world that this show revolves around. Surprisingly, my favorite character is not Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo), regardless to popular belief. Callie Torres (Sara Ramirez) has my heart and for those of you who aren’t completely caught up, don’t worry, I won’t spoil a thing!

1. Game of Thrones

GoT is full of everything you need in a TV show- Jon Snow, blood, lust, and did I mention Jon Snow? This show has had me sitting at the edge of my seat since the first season and I have never been so happy to watch a show where so many characters are terminated. I know, that sounds awful, but this show is the best of the best. Sansa and Daenerys are my favorites!

Why Your Grandma Is Your Biggest Blessing In Life

Because nobody loves you more than she does.

There are many people in your life you are thankful for: Mom, Dad, siblings, cousins, best friends, teachers, neighbors, you name it. You are grateful to have people who constantly support you, who pick you up when you're down and love you unconditionally. But the one person who stands out among the rest of them is your grandma.

Ever since you were little, you and your grandma have always had a special connection. Going over to Grandma's house for the night was something you looked forward to. She knew how to entertain you at your best and worst moments. No matter what you did together, you loved it. Being with your grandma wasn't like being at home or with your parents – it was better. You went to the park, made cookies, went out to dinner, got a “sweet treat" at the mall, played Go Fish, took a bubble bath for as long as you wanted and got way too much dessert than you should have. You did things you weren't supposed to do, but Grandma didn't stop you. Because at Grandma's house there were no rules, and you didn't have to worry about a single thing. Being with Grandma was the true epitome of childhood. She let you be you. She always made sure you had the best time when you were with her, and she loved watching you grow up with a smile on your face.

The older you got, your weekend excursions with your grandma weren't as frequent, and you didn't get to see her as much. You became more and more busy with school, homework, clubs, sports, and friends. You made the most out of your time to see her, and you wished you could be with her more. Although you were in the prime of your life, she mattered even more to you the older you both became. You were with your friends 24/7, but you missed being with your grandma. When the time rolled around, and you got the chance to spend time with her, she told you never to apologize. She wanted you to go out, have fun and enjoy life the way it makes you happy.

Reflecting back on these moments with your grandma, you realize how truly special she is to you. There is no one who could ever compare to her nor will there ever be. All your life, there is no one who will be as sweet, as caring, as sincere or as genuine as her. Even though you're all grown up now, there are things about your grandma that never changed from when you were a kid. She still takes you out for your favorite meal because she knows how important eating out means to you. She writes you letters and sends you a $5 bill every now and then because she knows you're a hard-working college student with no money. She still helps you with all of your Christmas shopping because she knows it's your tradition. She still asks what's new with your young life because hearing about it makes her day and she still loves you to no end. Your grandma is your biggest blessing (whether you knew it or not), and she always will be no matter what.
