You want to stop watching, but just can't.

3 Terribly Thrilling Crime-Related Specials You Won't Be Able To Stop Watching

Crime shows, specials, and documentaries are some of the most popular things on television. Shows such as "Dateline," "Criminal Minds" and "48 Hours" have paved the way for fictional and nonfictional accounts of various crimes. Although these programs are often scary, they are also often impossible to stop watching. Netflix has stepped up its game in the documentary area and has released a few insanely good specials.

Here are three crime-related specials you won't be able to stop watching.

1. "The Ted Bundy Tapes"

This documentary was just released by Netflix, but has been talked about non-stop since. It has received a lot of heat for possibly romanticizing the character of Bundy, but this documentary provides an insight like no other. Actual tapes and footage of the Bundy case reveal his charisma and charm towards everyone around. Just a short four episodes will have you glued to the tv until it is over.

2. "Abducted In Plain Sight"

This crime special goes into detail about the horrifying abduction of a young girl by one of her good family friends. However, this one is taken to the next level because the abducted girl herself is present in the documentary and gives her first-hand account of the events that took place. The insanity and tragedy of this story will keep you hooked for the entire 90 minutes, as the story gets more bizarre as it continues.

3. "American Crime Story: The Assassination Of Gianni Versace"

Although portrayed through a fictional retelling, the cast of "American Crime Story" puts forth a remarkable effort in reenacting the assassination that shook Miami, and the world. This is the second season of this television show, but as each season focuses on a different event, this one focuses on the "why" of the murdering of this fashion icon. It is informative, but also beautiful and entertaining at the same time.

If crime is not your thing, steer clear of these three, but if you love a good thriller, these are for you. All three analyze and portray true events that impacted this country, and the world. They're all beautifully done and I can guarantee you won't be able to stop watching.

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.

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.
