9 Ways The OC Applies To You Right Now

Sometimes, you don't really need to look for a new show to watch. Just watch these instead.

No, but in all seriousness, if you want to get to know yourself better, I 10/10 recommend watching this 2003 bombshell. Here are X number of ways to relate the OC to your daily life:

1. You embark on a new adventure (college), and the cool kids give you a scare.

2. But not to fret, Seth Cohen is here to save the day... with his adorably satirical self-deprecation and ever-so-familiar Jewish guilt.

3. So, now that you've been in school for a few weeks, you're feeling kinda badass. Welcome to the real world-- I promise your rude-awakening won't be as rude as scarred and battled, but boyish Ryan will make you believe.

4. Now that you've had your reality check, you're feeling inspired. You find yourself ready to create beautiful madness, such as the oh-so-inspiring holiday of Chrismukkah. If you aren't well-versed in this phenomenon, I suggest familiarizing yourself and celebrating. L'Chaim.

5. Second semester hits, and you kinda like someone. It may not be the Marissa Cooper of your dreams, but the way they turn you down... OUCH. It's okay, persistence is key. You go to the same school, after all! Get it, killer.

6. CONGRATS. You went after it. Now, you can recreate the iconic Spiderman lip-lock after Cohen falls off his ladder. Hey, it works. #Summer5eva

7. You got the girl. Mazel tov.

8. When she feels like it's too much, it brings you to your breaking point. Turns out, what you tell her is all she needed to hear. "She" being anything (like homework.) Keep grinding.

9. When you realize you made just about the best decision you could have by starting this dreamy series of mediocre humor and deeply intertwined relationships from start to finish. Smile and nod boys, smile and nod.

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.
