Yes, "Family Feud" is on the list.

5 TV Shows To Binge During Quarantine To Keep The Corona Blues Away

I'm sure many of us have already binge-watched enough Netflix or television in general since quarantine began, but there's always more to watch. I've been really into these shows lately, and I've been watching many of them since I was in high school. These five television shows helped me get through many at-home days, and I hope that you enjoy them, too.

"Family Feud"


I'm a sucker for game shows, especially "Family Feud." I've been watching it with my family while we eat dinner ever since quarantine started. The families that compete are adorable and Steve Harvey (the best "Family Feud" host, in my opinion) is hilarious. Some are the questions that are asked are questionable but nonetheless, the answers that family members give never cease to surprise me sometimes.



I used to watch "Survivor" religiously while I was in high school, and I recently started to watch it again. Basically, the show takes a punch of players, divides them up into three tribes (usually), and drops them off on an island. The model of the show is "Outwit, outplay, outlast," meaning that it is a physical competition as much as it is a social one. They compete in challenges, win rewards, form alliances, and go to tribal council where all of the tea is spilled and one person gets eliminated each time.

"Dr. Phil"


I do not condone the behaviors of the guests on the show, but I do find their stories intriguing. Many of the guests have issues revolving around drug addictions, family relationships, money frauds, and mental illnesses. Personally, I don't want my problems to be known by millions of people, but I guess that's what you have to do if you want Dr. Phil's help. He's blunt, doesn't take any excuses from anyone, and stands behind what he says, and you could learn a thing or two.

"Shark Tank"


Initially, I thought this show was about people swimming with sharks which is what made me select the show from the television guide, but it turns out that it's about entrepreneurs creating a new product and starting a company from it. I personally do not know much about business or entrepreneurship, but I think it's cool to be able to keep updated on what's new in the market. You get to see how people make pitches and what makes for a successful negotiation and business deal.

"The Bachelor Presents: Listen to Your Heart"


I've only watched one episode of it, and I'm not exactly sure how I feel about this edition of "The Bachelor." I was a fan of the regular "Bachelor," "Bachelorette," and "Bachelor in Paradise" series, and I find this series to be kind of random. Basically, all of the contestants share a common talent, which is singing. On the first day, they have to pair up, and whoever they pair up with, they have to sing a duet with each week. Every week, there is an elimination based on each couple's performance and connection. It may not be the greatest series from "The Bachelor," but at least the contestants are good singers.

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.
