Full House is my all-time favorite TV show from my childhood. I went out and bought every single season with my allowance money and watched each episode in order as a kid. It was my jam. Looking back at the show, it had some good advice regarding relationships and the dating game, here are a few.

Don’t wait around for boys.

Boys who are worth keeping around won't leave you hanging, don't sit by the phone and wait. Either make the first move yourself, or just focus on doing your own thing.

Friends come before boys.

Don't ever sacrifice girl-time for the sake of a cute boy. Guys will come and go, but your friends will always be there for you.

Pick a guy who knows how to talk to parents.

The last thing you want is an awkward or rude person to bring home to your parents. Make sure they pass that test before moving forward.

Love yourself first.

Confidence has been proven to be attractive to guys and girls alike. So focus on loving yourself before changing yourself for a boy.

Pickup lines were better by Jesse.

Gone are the days when classy lines like these were all you needed to win a girl over. Thanks to innovations like Tinder, pickup lines have gotten a little sloppy. So if you're pulling out a pickup line, it better be smoother than Uncle Jesse's hair gel.

Exes don’t have to hate each other.

DJ had pretty good relationships with her exes following a breakup. She taught us that following a split, you don't actually have to hate each other. Thanks, Deej.

You have to kiss a few frogs.

It's been said there are plenty of fish in the sea. Which usually means you'll have to date a few of them before you can find the bond that Uncle Jesse and Becky or Steve and DJ had.

Date a good study buddy.

School should be a priority in your life, and a relationship shouldn’t get in the way of that. Date a boy who will sit with you and actually do homework, your grades will thank you for it.

Distance doesn’t change how much you love someone.

Distance can be really hard on relationships, but it doesn't have to be the end of them. If you're both willing to give it a shot, it'll only make you stronger if it works out.

Breakups hurt.

The ice cream and sweatpants is a real thing following a major breakup. Sometimes you have to let yourself hurt before you can move on.

Family is forever.

Boys will come and go, even friendships will come to an end, but the people who love you unconditionally will always be there no matter what happens.

"Full House" is known for its family values, life lessons. While it's debatable that I've wasted valuable time in my life binging this show, I can definitely say I got some solid advice out of it. Fuller House, here I come!

My Ethnicity

Hispanic is not a race... it’s an ethnicity. The term Hispanic describes a group of people whose common thread is language and/or culture. I’m a Hispanic woman born in Argentina to Korean parents. I self-identify as Hispanic/Latina and my personal experiences can’t be summarized by the color of my skin or the languages on my tongue. That is because every single person in the universe has a unique experience. Whether someone labels me as Korean or Argentine or American, that will never change my experiences as a Spanish speaker, immigrant, child of divorced parents, Californian, college graduate (Go Bears!), omnivore, writer, or any other label I choose for myself.

Your Work Week As Told By Michael Scott And Stanley Hudson

"The Office" is basically the best American TV show created in the past 15 years (you can fight me on this). And through all its hilarity and cringe-worthy "that would never happen in real life" moments, the show really does have a lot of relatable themes, as can be seen by the little compilation I put together of Michael Scott and Stanley Hudson.

The Plight Of Being Bigger Than A D-Cup

"Big boobs are like puppies: they're fun to look at and play with, but once they're yours, you realize they're a lot of responsibility." - Katie Frankhart, Her Campus

This probably sounds like the most self-absorbed, egotistical, and frankly downright irritating white-girl problem... but there's more to this I promise.
