I am a big TV show enthusiast. I can spend hours binging shows on Netflix, or dedicate an hour to a show's time slot each week. There is nothing quite like falling in love with a show and connecting with their characters.

When our favorites feel pain, so do we. When our favorites are happy, then we are happy. So when it is time for a show to end or a certain characters' story is concluded, sometimes the writers do a good job and give the characters justice.

Other times...not so much. I created a list of TV show characters who got a terrible ending and did not deserve it. Whether it be out of character writing or an unfair death, here are characters who deserved better.

1. Allison Argent (Teen Wolf)

Of course, she is at the top of this list. There is nothing I love more than a strong and bad ass female lead. She died to save her friends but I really wish her story did not end here. Her loss was a loss of Teen Wolf's pack, and she deserved so much more than this ending.

2. Stefan Salvatore (The Vampire Diaries)

The award of "Most Robbed Character in TV history" goes too... Stefan. Hands down. The Vampire Diaries was HIS show, and after 8 long seasons, the writers wrote him off in a horrible way. I will never not be bitter about his ending. #JusticeForStefan

3. Cheryl Blossom (Riverdale)

At first glance, the character that is Cheryl Blossom can seem eerie, mean, and a bit harsh. But it is always the characters that have hard edges that have a soft, broken side to them. After her brother was killed by her own father, how could she not be savage at times?

4. Hannah Baker (13 Reasons Why)

Is this not an obvious choice for this list? The show caused tons of controversy after following the life of a teenage girl who committed suicide and showing the events that led to her death. To say she deserved better is an understatement, but I hope this show changes people's minds about bullying.

5. Nate Archibald (Gossip Girl)

An oldie but goodie. Nate Archibald: the golden boy of the Gossip Girl universe. Not only was he ALWAYS out of the loop and confused whenever things would go down, but his finale was lacking. It seems like every character got a happy ending except him. My poor sad puppy.

6. Poussey Washington (Orange is the New Black)

I still cry over Poussey and my heart still aches. This show always pushes the boundaries and makes me think in new ways, and her ending did that for sure. I felt for everyone affected and it made me want to take action in today's world.

7. Bonnie Bennett (The Vampire Diaries)

Okay so are we ever going to talk about Bonnie's ending? Season after season, she constantly sacrificed herself (and sometimes her own life... more than once... this is The Vampire Diaries after all) for her friends, and she got the season finale in return. SO unfair for such a sunshine.

8. Michael Cordero (Jane the Virgin)

OUCH, THIS HURTS. Michael's death was unexpected and shocking. His character brought such warmth and kindness to the show that I am still missing it to this day. The show made me feel like I lost someone as well. #MichaelDeservedBetter

9. Finn Hudson (Glee)

What an unfair ending for the show AND in real life. A humble and sweet character and person both lost. I cried enough at the memorial episode that I could fill up the Atlantic Ocean. We would all have loved to see Finn and Cory have a happy ending.

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.
