5 Shows To Watch On Netflix This Summer

Another semester of college is done, or you finally got your diploma after years of hard work. Either way, you deserve a break! Of course, this time of year means students will be returning home and back to the jobs they left behind, but that doesn’t mean there can’t be any room for some quality entertainment in the form of Netflix.

1. "Black Mirror."

I have heard quite a bit about this show and how good it is. A British science fiction show, Black Mirror is set in an alternate universe that looks at the effect of technology on society. Black Mirror is praised for its creativity and twists in the ending. Four seasons are currently available.

2. "Ozark."

I had watched this show last summer, and eagerly waiting for more. The show stars Patrick Bateman of Arrested Development, who plays a financial advisor forced to launder money for a Mexican drug cartel in the Missouri Ozarks. The first episode jumped right into the problems at hand, which develops quite nicely over the course of the season. While the character development is rather slow, the thrills make up for that. One season is available.

3. "The Crown."

Another on my own list, for those that are into political dramas like House of Cards or The West Wing, then this might be the one for you. This show follows Queen Elizabeth II from the time she married Prince Phillip well into her reign after World War II. The series is acclaimed for its cinematography and captivating performances. There are two seasons available, with the third set for release later this year.

4. "Marvel’s Daredevil."

Heroes assemble! For our Marvel fans out there, this may peek your interest. The television adaption of The Man Without Fear follows blind lawyer Matt Murdock’s alter ego fighting to keep the streets of Hell’s Kitchen crime-free. At first, I was skeptical of a Marvel television show because I am so used to seeing Marvel films that television seemed like such a stretch for them. Because of the rave reviews and how its dark themes make a good contrast to the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Marvel's Daredevil would be worth devoting time to.

5. "On My Block."

I actually heard about this show last week, and after reading descriptions about it, it seemed like a good addition to this list. It is a coming-of-age series about four teenagers in an inner-city neighborhood in Los Angeles navigating through high school and their relationship with each other. The show tackles real and relatable issues teens today face, and its diverse cast makes it popular among viewers.

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.
