10 Reasons Why "Boy Meets World" Is My Favorite Sitcom

Well, at least from the 90's.


I specifically watching all of the reruns of "Boy Meets World" in middle school. Two would be played each morning and I never really seemed to get enough of them. I eventually set out to buy all of the seasons and binged watched every season in one summer. That was the first T.V. show that I had ever binge-watched. With Disney Plus, I plan on going back and rewatching them all just to reminisce about my and Cory's childhood. You should too!

The Theme Song


I'll admit, as the seasons progress the theme song gets better. However, they all check the marks in 90's sitcom theme songs. With an upbeat instrumental song and friends that are all smiling and enjoying their lives, how much better could it get?

Cory Matthews


Cory is the main character in the show. He is charismatic and so badly wants to become an adult. As he grows older, he realizes that life isn't as easy as it seems to be and meets some great people along the way.

Shawn Hunter


Shawn is Cory's best friend and always seems to be there for him no matter what. He too learns valuable lessons about life and really comes into his own as the show progresses.

Topanga Lawerence


She is really weird in the first season, but slowly becomes friends with both Cory and Shawn. She even becomes Cory's love interest.

Eric Matthews


Cory's older, comedic brother. Eric is probably my favorite character from the show because he reminds me of Joey from "Friends." He might not seem serious, but offers some serious life advice to Cory throughout the show.

Mr. Feeny


Mr. Feeny. What's not to love about him? He basically watched Cory, Shawn, and Topanga grow up. He even shows up in "Girl Meets World." He was blunt, but also still cared about them. He reminds me of a few teachers that I had in middle and high school.

The Life Lessons


Yeah, life is tough. That's the entire point of the show. Cory and his friends face challenges along the way and have to learn how to deal with them. Even if it is getting detention on a Friday when you really should be watching the Phillies.

Growing Up


"Boy Meets World" shows how an 11 year-old Cory grows into his own and discovers life for himself. He goes from thinking that Topanga is weird to marrying her. He came full circle and matured.

The Humor


The humor is impeccable. Life lessons can be tough to learn, but when humor is involved, who can't laugh.

The Spin-Off


Yes, Cory and Topanga marry each other and have children. Disney Channel decided to give the show a reboot. "Girl Meets World" is all about how Cory's daughter comes of age and includes characters from the original. It's cute, but not as good as "Boy Meets World."

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.

I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
