6 Shows To Stream When You Don't Know What To Watch

Because sometimes we don't know what we're missing out on!


Sure, we've all seen "The Office" and "Friends" a dozen times, and we all know about "Stranger Things" and "The Haunting Of Hill House," but how do you know what to watch when you're ready for something new? Here are a handful of my suggestions for you, and where to find them!

1. "Lucifer"

I was intrigued with the first few episodes when this series first came out on Fox, but I was never home when it was on. Thanks to streaming services I was finally able to get hold of this and it has quickly become a favorite of mine. Originally I found this on Hulu, but when Fox tried to cancel it Netflix swooped in to save it. Naturally, the full show is now on Netflix. Seasons 1-3 are available now, and season 4 is set to come out in February. If you liked "Castle," you'll enjoy this one for sure!

2. "Patriot Act"

I miss when Jon Stewart was on the "Daily Show," So Hasan Minhaj has been awesome for me. He tackles one issue a week, so I feel like I'm staying updated on issues that matter, but he's also a great guy to listen to with a perspective we haven't seen like this before. Netflix has you covered to start each week with "Patriot Act." There are seven episodes now, and more to come in this new year!

3. "The X-Files"

I know it's a little older but I love this show so much. There's a little bit of everything in this 9 season 90's series, plus there have been like 2 newer seasons released in the last couple of years. You can catch all of this on Hulu and join me in my random love of both unsolved phenomena and the ongoing tension between Mulder and Scully.

4. "Hannibal"

SUCH A GOOD SHOW! All three seasons are on Amazon Prime. I don't even know what to say about this show other than its full of the unexpected and keeps you clicking for the next episode. It's a bit dark (it IS about a cannibal after all) but its also about solving crimes and people's personal journeys and I love it. Also, Mads Mickelson is always a win.

5. "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt"

On a much lighter note, Kimmy Schmidt. I was skeptical at first, but my best friend convinced me to give it a go. Honestly, it's a really funny feel-good show with very memorable characters. I never should have doubted it- anything Tina Fey does is great, and this show is one of her many successful projects. The theme song alone makes me smile- and gets stuck in my head for the rest of the day. Season 4 came out this past May, and the whole series is available on Netflix.

6. "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D."

We all know I'm a huge Marvel fan. I love Phil Coulson so much, and anything that lets me see more of him is worth the watch. I confess, I'm only a couple of episodes in (and loving all of it), but my boyfriend is well into season two and practically demanded I put this on here. He doesn't get excited by TV shows all that much, so I trust him. Once again, Netflix has your back on this one.

There are so many shows I could have included, but I hope these give you somewhere to start your search.

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.
