All My Parents Do Is Watch TV Land Re-Runs And I'm Fed Up With It
TV Guide

I'm not really sure what it is but some reasons my parents think TV Land is just the hottest channel ever. I mean, yeah, it has some good shows from the past. But hang on. THEY ARE FROM THE PAST. This is 2018. We have the ability to watch anything we want! There are handful of channels out there with brand new, action packed shows. Of course, my parents would never know this though. In our house the TV stays on one channel...


1. Me: Do we really have to watch M*A*S*H* again?

Mom: *says nothing

Dad: * says nothing


That's fine. It's not like we have Netflix shows to catch up on or anything.


2. How my Dad looks when he watches the same shows every night on TV Land.


Someone come get my Dad. Help me, please.


3. When my Mom asks me, "Have we seen this episode before?"


Yes, we did. In fact, we watched it last night too. So bye now.


4. How my parents act when I talk and it's not commercial break yet.


Well, I guess it's punishable by death.


5. Me trying to figure out why we have cable, premium channels, and Netflix but literally just watch the same shows we watched at the turn of the century.


It's almost like we time traveled back to 1999! We have streaming now for a reason!


6. Me to me: I could unplug the cable right now and end this all.



And then they would have no choice BUT to watch Netflix.


7. How my Dad acts as soon as he gets home from work and turns on the TV.


I guess it's just his hobby now.


8. Me: Can we watch an episode of "Longmire" tonight?

Mom: No, it's too late.

Dad: No, it's too late.


*proceeds to watch three more episodes of "Everybody Loves Raymond."


9. Actual footage of my Mom telling me to be quiet when they watch TV.


For real! Who found this video of my Mom!?


10. When it's a marathon of "The Andy Griffith Show" and you just keep hearing that theme song. Over and over again.


SOS. THE WHISTLING NEVER STOPS. SOS.


11. When I'm watching some vampire show on Netflix and my parents yell at me to "turn something good on."


Okay. Well, you know, like some people actually enjoy TV shows from this decade! Okay!?


12. Me: Mom! Dad! These shows are boring! I don't know how you guys watch them every single night!

My parents:



*throws hands into air. That's it! I give up!


13. Me when I sit down to watch TV with my parents every night, full on knowing that we are about to watch the same shows we watched last night. But I do it anyways cause I love my parents.


Alright, ya'll caught me. They are annoying, they laugh at the same jokes of the same re-runs. But come on? Parents are cool!

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.

1241

Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.

With the dawn of social media comes an entirely new character: the Facebook politician. Usually, articles or posts about politics are fairly sporadic. That is until a major event happens. Suddenly, everyone knows everything about everything. Everyone seems to have a very strong opinion. Everyone is super knowledgeable, and what better vessel of information than they themselves? Which is pretty reasonable, given that people’s emotions run high when something major happens. And I don’t blame them, emotions are good!

The Gift Of Basketball

The NBA playoffs remind me of my basketball journey through time

Syracuse Basketball

I remember that when I was very little, my dad played in an adult basketball league, and I remember cheering him on with everything in me. I also remember going to Tuscola basketball games when the old floor was still there and the bleachers were still wooden. I remember always wanting to play basketball like my dad, and that's just what I did.

Plus Size Appreciation: How I Learned To Love My Body

Because it is okay to not be "skinny."

In America, we tend to stick up our noses at certain things that aren't the norm. For example, people who are overweight, or the politically correct term “obese." Men and women who are overweight get so much backlash because they are not skinny or "in shape," especially, African-American women, who are typically known for having wider hips and thicker thighs. Robert Darryl, an African-American filmmaker, explains the overall intention of the body mass index in his follow-up sequel, “America the Beautiful 2: The Thin Commandments."
