5 Times Lip Gallagher From 'Shameless' Was 100% In The Right

The bad boy with a heart of gold. The 24-hour babysitter of the family. Lip Gallagher likes to be the coach, but when it comes down to taking his own advice, he can never score. He isn't great with relationships. His top picks of women turn out crazy, pregnant, or his professor. Lip can be his own therapist, it's what's so appealing to his tough guy persona. He swallows his pain and will probably punch a face or two.

1. "All teenagers are sex addicts."


As much as our hormones would like to deny it, guys hunt girls and girls act like they aren't hunting guys. When it comes down to it, our youth is run off our sex drive. "I hit that," Brad says. "Yeah we hooked up," Jessica says. (Sorry if your name is Brad or Jessica, really just fits.) We sit in class and we stare, we give a little smile, and if you wanna get a little too crazy you rub your neck like you're in actual pain. Real game changer. Guys can be weak, they fall at the sight of a pencil on our lips. This world is run off of sex, money, and drugs. Lip just knows there is more sex than money and drugs combined.

2. "Stuff just happens sometimes."

Sometimes there's really nothing else to say. You study hard for an exam and you know you got an A, you get a D. Stuff just happens sometimes. You have been talking to a guy on Tinder for months who could be Zac Efron's clone. You meet up and he resembles more of a Jonah Hill more than anything. Stuff just happens sometimes.

3: "I don't want to sit in a lecture that teaches me how to modify algorithms instead of think for myself."

I don't know what an algorithm is, but if I did, I probably wouldn't want to learn about it either. In today's society, we are more often able to get that cubicle job than the world traveler job. Why? We're not thinking for ourselves. We sit in the library day in and day out filling our brains with knowledge not even Isaac Newton probably consumed. We are walking little file cabinets storing the most pointless information. I can tell you any math function from now to third grade, but if you ask me my favorite food it might take me a minute. Thinking for yourself is uncommon these days. Lip runs by his rules and thinks for not only himself but his whole family.

4: "You can spend less time worrying about everyone and spend more time thinking of yourself."

This one hits.

Fiona, Lip's older sister, is someone who is guilty of this. She takes everyone's falls. She does laundry, maintains money, cleans poop, and bails everyone out from jail. She has a new problem every day and not enough time for a problem that's even hers. Dating or even social life is impossible with everything and everyone she juggles. Lip has a heart way too big. He takes some of the family damage and steps up to be the new Fiona.

5: " F*** You, You F****** F***"

That's all.

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

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.
