With not much else to do, binge-watching has become our primary job.

5 Binge-Worthy TV Shows To Ease Your Quarantine Blues

If you're a binge-watcher like me, there's a good chance that at this point in our national social distancing efforts you have watched (and possibly re-watched) all of your favorite shows on Netflix. I mean, there's not a lot else to do when you're trapped indoors for days at a time. If I don't have to get off the couch for anything other than snacks, I am not moving.

So really, there's no better time to hunker down and choose one of these binge-worthy shows to keep you company. Think of it as doing your due diligence. So grab a snack, a drink (gotta stay hydrated), and a comfy blanket and settle in to binge-watch one of these fun and funny shows.

1. Brooklyn Nine Nine


This show might still be running, but there are plenty of episodes to keep you watching for a few days. You'll laugh, cry, and fall in love with every single character, even Hitchcock. Okay, maybe that's a bit of a stretch, but every character on this show is gold. Plus who doesn't love cameos by Cheddar, Captain Holt's adorable corgi?

2. Schitt's Creek


"Schitt's Creek" has finally started to catch on in the states and of course, it's in its final season. I have to admit, the first season was a bit rough and I wasn't in love with it, but the first episode of season two had me hooked and I quickly caught up to real-time after that. The characters are a bit crazy and over the top but at its core, "Schitt's Creek" is about family. If you are missing yours right now, just pretend you're an adopted Rose for a few days. I mean, I'm sure we all feel a bit like David right now.

3. Bob's Burgers


Speaking of families, you could always spend some time with the best animated family, the Belchers. Even though we might all feel like Louise right now, this hilarious and heartwarming show will take your mind off the insane outside world for a few days. This show is also still running, but it's one that I never get tired of re-watching.

4. Malcolm in the Middle


"Malcolm in the Middle" might be a throwback show but it is still one of the funniest shows that has ever been on television. And, it's pretty heartwarming at times once you get past all the yelling. A few episodes of this series is guaranteed to make you feel way better about your (most likely not as dysfunctional) family, especially since you probably did not expect to be stuck indoors with them for the foreseeable future.

5. What's New, Scooby-Doo?


This is another MAJOR throwback, but if you're not excited that the entirety of "What's New, Scooby-Doo?" is on Netflix then we can't be friends. This show shaped many of our childhoods and it still stands the test of time. Plus if the whole show's lesson that the real monsters are just people isn't apropos for our current situation, I don't know what is.

This is not an easy time for anyone, but hopefully binge-watching one of these shows will brighten your week. Or days, because let's be honest, with not much else to do, binge-watching has become our main job.

Stay safe, stay inside, and binge-watch to your heart's content!

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.
