6 Ways The Cast Of Criminal Minds Is #SquadGoals

Why the best crime-fighting cast out there has the ideal friendship relationships.

6 Ways The Cast Of Criminal Minds Is #SquadGoals

We all have at least one TV show that we can't help but get invested in. For a large portion of the crime drama loving population, "Criminal Minds" is considered #1 on the list. Reasons range from the heart pounding scenes where the team is about to catch an UnSub, to the heart-wrenching bonding moments that they share. The cast definitely knows how to reel you in to the point where you feel like a part of the CM family.

1. You know they will always be there for each other.

One thing that resonates with a lot of people that watch the show is the consistent expression of love and compassion that they have towards one another. They know in the seconds before they break in a door to rescue a victim that every member of the team has each other's back. They will jump in front of bullets, be a supporter when someone tries to talk down an UnSub, and even serve as a godfather to a child of a team member. Who wouldn't want a friend like that as a part of your group?

2. They tease each other like only best friends do.

Throughout the show, members of the team pick on each other. It could be a practical joke, or revenge for one, but either way it usually gives us one hilarious scene. However, as soon as someone else chimes in or threatens a member, all the rest jump on the outsider. The sibling protectiveness is coveted for great friendships.

3. Each member is incredibly smart.

Although Reid undoubtedly has the highest IQ, all of the members of the team are crazy smart. Each one has their own way of thinking and that makes for one great, crime-fighting power team. Although not every friend in your squad is a genius, they all have their different ways of thinking as well.

4. Likewise, the team has great individual talents.

Garcia is a wizard tech analyst. Derek Morgan is the muscle behind the brains. Reid has an eidetic memory and remembers literally everything he reads. JJ is a wizard with the press and also has bad ass defensive skills. Hotchner acts as the strong backbone of the team and voice of leadership. Prentiss has communications all over the world. Basically they add up to the ultimate dream team. #Goals

5. They know how to have fun after work is done.

Go to work, catch bad guy, come back home, sleep a little, wake up and repeat. Although sometimes it can seem as though work dictates their lives (which it kind-of does), they also know how to have fun. Cooking classes together, trips to the bar for a night out and some times even a vacation (although from experience their vacations end up as cases) are just some examples of the fun times the team has had outside of work.

6. You know they will find you if you get taken/disappear/get lost/get framed for murder.

Kidnapped and tortured to get a government code? They'll find you. Framed for murder? They will find the truth. Anything that life, criminals or the BAU can throw their way, they have each other's back through it all. The ever-constant support system is something that all friendships should experience.

In the words of Helen Keller, "The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or touched -- they must be felt with the heart." That definitely goes for the bonds of friendships that are strong enough to fulfill the phrase #squadgoals.

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.
