Recently, ABC has embarked on a spin-off series of their award-winning show Black-ish. The spin-off is a version of the show following the family's oldest daughter Zoey as she goes off to college. What follows is an honest portrayal of exploring and learning who you are when you're away from home for the first time. Intrigued? Here are a few more perks to the show.

1. The styles

Every outfit in this show is a new kind of Look, with each character showing their own tastes and they're all fantastic.

2. Girls being friends with other girls

Realistically, no less. They're not all always best friends, they have disagreements, but they have each other's backs when it matters.

3. Romantic drama

Because who doesn't love some good drama?

4. Drug conversation

It's interesting to see college drugs portrayed in a way that isn't completely demonized or made to look like a rockstar mentality. The show takes a look at drug use in a collegiate setting in a refreshingly real way.

5. A little bit of positivity

We can all use a reminder to look on the bright side.

6. First heartbreak

It's something we all have to face and something some of us don't handle well, so it's always nice to see a relatable breakdown on TV.

7. The college friendships

The fringe friendships through one common person, the people you always go to, the ones you chill with. Sometimes all those people are in your group, sometimes they're not.

8. The representation

There's someone in this show for everyone to feel connected to, whether it's racially, politically, on the sexuality spectrum and so much more.

9. Commentary on current dating practices

And most of it is spot on.

10. It's really funny

The fourth wall breaks plus timely commentary and classic gags all rolled together into one set.

11. It's relatable

From political tension to romantic heartbreak to friend group drama to wanting to skip class, college is all here.

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.
