11 Netflix Shows To Binge When You're Having A Bad Day
Jens Kreuter

Sometimes, life gets you down and you just need to grab a snack and binge watch some TV shows. As of October 23rd, 2017, here are eleven shows to help you unwind and lift your spirits.

1. Parks and Recreation

This is currently my favorite show, and it's perfect to binge. Everyone I know who has watched Parks and Rec has loved it. With a huge cast of characters, endless jokes, and hilariously awkward situations, there is something for everyone.

2. America's Funniest Home Videos

There are a few different versions of AFV on Netflix, all guaranteed to make you laugh. While the full series isn't on there, it's enough to get you in better spirits.

3. Bill Nye the Science Guy

Relieve your childhood and learn something along the way! No matter how upset you feel, hearing "Bill! Bill! Bill! Bill!" will get you hyped.

4. Bob Ross

Like AFV, there are a few different Bob Ross episodes. If relaxation is what you're looking for, he's the perfect man to watch. How can you be sad while listening to his soothing voice and endless optimism?

5. Friends

An absolute classic, it's no wonder that everyone freaked out when Netflix finally decided to add it. It has held up for a reason.

6. Futurama

While this show does have deeper messages, on the surface it's simply a great cartoon that draws you in with colorful animation, unique storylines, and witty pop culture references.

7. Mystery Science Theater 3000

If you're fascinated by older, B (and below) level films, then MST3K is right for you. The films themselves are bad enough to make you laugh, but the commentary from the characters is what makes this so good. Bonus: MST3K: The Return, is great too.

8. New Girl

It's nearly impossible to resist Jess and the boy's charm, and get invested in their strange yet lovable relationships with each other.

9. Ouran High School Host Club

I'm not really into anime, but I love this one. It's absurd, and worth paying attention to the subtitles for.

10. Phineas and Ferb

Another blast from the past. The brother's adventures are still fun to watch today even if it's to make fun of how crazy they are.

11. That 70's Show

Your regular teenage antics with a groovy setting. Easy to get lost in and unwind to.

Hopefully these shows will help you go from this...

to this!

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

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.
