4 Shows You Have To Watch Before You Graduate College

4 Shows You Have To Watch Before You Graduate College

Netflix and snacks, since C's get degrees

There are some types of humor that won't fly when you enter the work force. Apparently dabbing and joking about blacking out isn't acceptable in an office park. Who knew? College will be over before you know it, and there are a couple shows that'll make you giggle while you're still allowed to be a little immature:

1. "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia"

It's a show about a group of assholes who own a bar together. There's nothing funnier than the ridiculous antics they get into, and the recurring jokes are even better. It's also so easy to see yourself getting into similar antics with your friends; every group has a Charlie for damn sure.

2. "30 Rock"

Tina Fey created and wrote this show about ... writing a show. It's filled with both childish jokes and incredibly complex ones that will hit you later (Like Jack Donaghey's joke about Cleveland). The part which makes it so crucial to watch before you graduate is how Liz Lemon (Tina Fey's character) deals with Tracey and Jenna, two childish people. Her methods are unconventional, but maybe they'll work when you have terrible coworkers.

3. "Arrested Development"

This was a cult comedy which grew in popularity to the point where Netflix made two new seasons. This is one of those shows you watch after a huge fight with your family and think they're completely crazy. Well, not quite. Join Michael in attempting to keep the family company alive and enjoy the ridiculous jokes along the way.

4. "The West Wing"

This show is smart, well written, and features TONS of female leads (so basically, what's not to like?). In today's current political climate, it can be kind of hard to watch Jed Barlett kicking ass and taking names for democracy. Furthermore, it is captivating in a way that's hard to find nowadays.

Happy watching, my friends.

Board Games Are More Important Than You Think They Are

They've become a defining part of my family.


Remember when you were a kid and you'd have a family game night? Or your friends would come over and you'd open the game cabinet and play at least three different games together?

Maybe it's just me, but those are some of my best memories from my childhood. My family loves games, board games, and electronic games.

Of course, as I got older, gaming consoles like PlayStation and Wii became more and more popular. That meant that the game cabinet was opened less and less, collecting dust.

Thankfully, I live in New Jersey near the shore and Hurricane Sandy left my family with no power for five days. Sure, it was scary not having power and walking around my neighborhood seeing fallen trees or roof shingles, but we were inland enough to not have had any flood water damage.

No power also meant no PlayStation or Wii games. The gaming cabinet was opened again, this time with vigor. Now, four years later, and I still think about sitting in the dark with a flashlight playing Scrabble with my family.

That was also the week I learned how to play Yahtzee and dominated my dad in every game. My sister constantly was looking for someone to play her to Battleship. We exhausted Rummikub.

The game was already a family favorite, and that's including extended family. Family barbeques had been ending with late night games of Rummikub for at least a year by the time Sandy hit.

We were ready to strategize and crunch numbers, but after day three, we never wanted to a number ever again.

This semester, there's been a surge of board game love again in my family. My sister bought Jenga, which we are currently trying to exhaust ourselves with. My favorite board game also had a comeback: Life.

I loved this game so much that I had the SpongeBob version as a kid. I would play it with my best friend, just the two of us, playing game after game of Bikini Bottom themed Life. Now, I have a car full of "kids" that I've started to make pets in my head. I can handle having five pretend dogs, but not five pretend kids.

I don't know what it is about board games, but my family has always had an affinity for them. We've gone through our cycles of playing video games and card games, but we always come back to the classics. Maybe it's more a defining part of my family than I originally thought.
