10 TV Shows To Binge Watch Over Break

After a long semester all I want to do is go home, cozy up in my bed, and watch TV. Over breaks I can easily get through a season of any show in two day's time and, with winter break being a month long, I have plenty of time to watch and potentially finish new series. Here are 10 of my favorite shows to binge watch after a stressful semester.

1. The Ranch

This is one of the funniest shows I have ever seen. I catch myself laughing out loud often, which is usually a hard task for a TV show to accomplish. Part 6 was just released on Netflix and I am currently making my way through it. Not only is this show hysterical, but Ashton Kutcher is in it and that would be enough for me.

Also if you are a fan of That 70's Show, there is a lot of appearances from that cast as well as Steven Hyde playing the main character Rooster!

2. Fuller House

A new season was just added to Netflix! This show is so lighthearted and cute. It is perfect to watch with friends or family. I like it for the nostalgia quality and cuteness factor. It is also a good show if you just want something on in the background as you do other things.

3. Drugs Inc.

If you like documentaries, you will love this! Me and my roommate were watching episodes of Drugs Inc. throughout the semester and, as soon as we finished one, we had to start another. This show is very interesting and shows a deep look into the lives of people who do and sell drugs. Also, from this show my roommate found out that there are drug dealers in Minnesota... very educational!

4. Gossip Girl

I've probably binge watched Gossip Girl at least four times, but it is always one of my favorites. There is something about watching their rich-kid drama unfold and hating almost all the characters yet being unable to turn it off. It always makes me want to live on the Upper East Side and fall in love with a rich man.

5. Hart of Dixie

I love Rachel Bilson! Also everything about this show is wonderful. It follows a New York City doctor as she moves to a rural Alabama town where she just causes a bunch of problems and eventually falls in love. I feel like every component about this show makes it binge worthy.

6. Gilmore Girls

This show makes me feel so cozy and at home. I think Stars Hollow is such a special place and I would love to just insert myself into their little town. A bonus would be to binge this with your mom so you can feel like Lorelia and Rory!

7. The Night Shift

This is easily my favorite medical drama I have ever watched. I seriously finished it in a week. Unlike shows like Grey's Anatomy, it follows around more than just the surgeons, which I think makes it a lot more interesting. The characters have intense cases, a lot of passion, and interesting personal lives, which makes it hard to stop watching.

8. Law & Order SVU

In the criminal justice system, sexually based offenses are considered especially heinous. In New York City, the dedicated detectives who investigate these vicious felonies are members of an elite squad known as the Special Victims Unit. These are their stories. *DUN DUN*


This show is a classic. Olivia Benson is a queen. You can never go wrong with watching SVU for hours or even days. I rest my case.

9. The OC

THE O.C., (backrow, l to r): Tate Donovan, Rachel Bilson, Melinda Clarke, Peter Gallagher, Kelly Row

I love this show so much and it is the current one that I am binge watching. I'm pretty much just trash for early 2000s teen TV shows, but I stand by this choice. Also Seth Cohen is so cute and funny and dorky and I recommend falling in love with him. Unless you're more into hot and broody bad boy Ryan Atwood, that is also a good choice to fall in love with and I will not judge you for that.

10. One Tree Hill

Out of every show on the planet to binge watch this is the one I would choose time and time again. If I was only allowed to watch one TV show for the rest of my life it would be a no brainer. One Tree Hill is easily the greatest show of all time and so so easy to watch for hours on end. If you aren't already asking yourself "What would Brooke Davis do?" you should probably start.

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.
