Darren Barnet as Paxton in "Never Have I Ever" is the new fan obsession.

Meet The Internet's Newest Boyfriend, Paxton From "Never Have I Ever"

If you've been keeping up to date with Netflix and all of their new content they've released while being in quarantine, then you're probably familiar with Mindy Kaling's new tv series "Never Have I Ever." "Never Have I Ever" is a Netflix Original and a coming of age story that follows the complicated life of your average, first generation Indian American teenager.

Not only is the show very relatable to teens, but it's also super humorous and fun. It's been a hit in the media and was featured on Netflix's Top 10 list for a while after its release. But besides the show being a success, what everyone is really talking about is Darren Barnet.

Darren Barnet plays the role of Paxton in the new Netflix hit. You may recognize Darren Barnet for his roles as Young Jack in "This is Us" and Wilfred in "Agents of Shield." In "Never Have I Ever" Paxton is the popular, sexy, Japanese jock and star of the swimming team who Devi, our protagonist and MC, has a major crush on.

But, when Devi tells him she wants to have sex with him, they begin to build what one may call a friendship. Their relationship is nothing short of adorable and quite awkward, but has fans praising the one true pairing! Although Paxton has some competition with winning Devi's heart, he's definitely the next Peter Kavinsky.

But, he's more than just a cliche hottie with abs.

Fans, including myself, love Paxton not just for his looks but for his soft personality. Viewers get to meet Paxton's sister, who is diagnosed with down syndrome. Not only does this give more insight into Paxton's home life, but we also get to see the brother and sister dynamic. It was heartwarming to see Paxton get advice from his sister and to also see how protective he is over her.

Since the show was released on Netflix, fans have been debating about who's a better choice for Devi: Paxton, or Ben played by Jaren Lewison, her nemesis-turned-love-interest by the season one finale. I think it's clear which team I'm on.

I'm sorry, but Paxton has won my heart over!

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.

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.
