TV Shows To Watch

1. T@gged.

  • If you like Pretty Little Liars, T@gged is the next show that should be on your list. Three girls are being tormented by an unforeseen stalker and they must figure out who it is before time is up. This show gripped me from the start, and I can't wait for season three to come out.
  • Available on Hulu.

2. Nashville.

  • Set in music city, this show stars big names such as Connie Britton and Hayden Panettiere. Britton plays the queen of country music, while Panettiere plays an up and coming pop/country singer. Currently, in its last season, Nashville features wonderful talent and some of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard.
  • Available on Hulu.

3. Crazy Ex-Girlfriend.

  • Another show that features great music, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend is hilarious from the first episode. Viewers are easily able to relate to the characters, and the cast is pleasantly and appropriately diverse.
  • Available on Netflix.

4. The Bold Type.

  • Like many shows before it, The Bold Type features a group of young women trying to navigate their careers and love lives in New York City. Unlike any other show, The Bold Type has a strong feminist message; that it is much better to build your fellow women up than to tear them down.
  • Available on Hulu.

5. Rick and Morty.

  • While Rick and Morty does have a strong following, I decided to include it on this list because I know far too many people who don't watch it. This cartoon is smart, funny, and interesting. It's impossible not to formulate your own theories about the characters and the plot. There are three seasons so far, and luckily, Rick and Morty was recently renewed for seventy more episodes.
  • Available on Hulu.

6. Siesta Key.

  • Siesta Key is a reality show that is often compared to Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County, and The Hills. Put a group of good looking, rich, young 20 somethings in a beautiful location, and drama is bound to follow. In fact, this show is so much like The Hills that Spencer Pratt writes a review of every episode for Cosmopolitan, and he and Heidi are known to be fans of the show. I definitely recommend Siesta Key to anyone who is nostalgic for the days when Lauren Conrad graced our screens.
  • Available on MTV.com.

7. Everything Sucks!

  • Set in 1996 in the town of Boring, Oregon, Everything Sucks! focuses on a group of teenagers as they navigate high school, mental health, their sexualities, and the issues that come with making their own movie.
  • Available on Netflix.

8. American Vandal.

  • Filmed as a mockumentary crime series, American Vandal follows Dylan Maxwell, a teenage delinquent who has been expelled for vandalizing faculties' cars at his high school. Viewers watch as Peter and Sam, two amateur filmmakers, do their best to discover whether Dylan is innocent or not. This show is gripping and hilarious, and you'll finish the first season in one sitting.
  • Available on Netflix.

I Was At The Atlanta George Floyd Protests, Here's What It Was Like Before The Violence Started

What started out as a peaceful protest quickly resulted in destruction, with mixed opinions leading narratives on both sides.

When I heard about the protests happening in my city in honor of George Floyd, a black man who was brutally and fatally detained by police in broad daylight, I was conflicted about the best way for me to support a cause that I was passionate about. The senseless killings of people of color in America had been weighing on me, and I was eager for a way to help, to do my part. I wanted to be out on the ground with my community, having our voices heard. However, there was the issue of the coronavirus, a very real and troublesome threat that is still controlling our daily lives.

If You Can Eat Crap And Stay Thin You Aren't Healthy, You're Lucky

A high metabolism isn't a get-out-of-jail-free card!

Everyone has that one friend — the one who eats to their heart's content but never gains an ounce. Meanwhile, you feel like you gain five pounds just stealing a glance at a hamburger! My childhood best friend was like that, much to my chagrin. Anyone who hadn't witnessed her eat might be tempted to say that she was thin because of her diet, but she would sometimes eat a bag of Sour Patch Kids as a "meal." One time, I watched in awe as she chowed down on a "salad" made up of one part romaine lettuce, two parts shredded cheddar cheese, and two parts French dressing — it was nothing more than a red lake of dressing with bits of green and orange debris floating in it. Clearly our definitions of "salad" were quite different, as were our perceptions of a balanced meal.
