5 Things Every "Law & Order: SVU" Addict Knows

"In the criminal justice system, sexually based offenses are considered especially heinous. In New York City, the dedicated detectives who investigate these vicious felonies are members of an elite squad known as the Special Victims Unit. These are their stories."

Yes, I typed that all from memory. Any "Law & Order: SVU" marathoner could repeat the opening statement word for word. Of course, we all know not EVERYTHING on tv is realistic, however, it still makes for a good show and big dreams. Any real lover of "Law and Order: SVU" can agree that they have learned these five things during any marathon or season.

1. Teamwork makes the dreamwork

Have you ever seen just one detective solve a crime? All hands on deck while the squad is working on a case. No detail can be left out, so there is always a team working on each case.

2. Female cops are BA.

I don't know what it is, but there is an intimidation level that female detectives reach. The death stares, the hair flips and the problem solving all come together to form one badass woman. (PSA: THAT WOMAN WILL BE ME ONE DAY.)

3. You learn the Miranda Rights within three episodes.

"You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say or do can and will be used against you in the court of law. You have the right to an attorney. If you cannot afford one, one will be appointed to you..."

4. You cannot watch just one episode.

Everyone knows that when there is a marathon on USA, you must clear your whole schedule for the day. One episode is not enough. One thinks that they can control themselves and quit after one, but it is an addiction that cannot be cured.

5. Not everyone belongs together, no matter how bad we want them to be.

Yes, Olivia Benson and Elliot Stabler would be the power couple of the century, but sadly, they think otherwise. As much as all of us SVU lovers wanted them (and still want them) to be together, they are much better as partners in crime.

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.

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.
