Watching "It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia" And Being From Philadelphia
Den of Geek

Everyone is always seeking some kind of approval. Either from people we care about or through the world of the media. That's why it's exciting when a movie or TV show is placed in the area you live.

It's like finally getting some recognition you never thought or knew you were entitled to. It's almost like you're famous, since your town is. You feel as if you might catch a glimpse of yourself in the background. It's just exciting.

This is why "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" is one of my favorite shows. Not only because of the snide humor or the shenanigans the gang gets into, but because I get to see landmarks and places I grew up seeing and still go to on my TV screen. Something about it makes it more magical. So, if you're from Philadelphia too, you might want to check out this show and share in some of these little excitements.

1. Recognizing exactly where the scene is being held

From Penn's landing to LOVE park and even Citizen's Bank Park, you can pinpoint exactly where they're filming.

2. Catching small Philadelphia jokes that you'd only understand if you're from Philly

Philadelphians have a certain sense of humor that relates to city life, and you just have to be there to get the joke.

3. Saying "That's so true!" at least five times during an episode

Between talking about SEPTA, the Jersey shore, the Liberty Bell and even Reading Terminal Market, Philadelphians can identify with almost every aspect of the show.

3. Knowing the exact struggles the gang faces

There are more struggles than you would think.

4. Being proud everything is pronounced correctly, like Schuylkill

If you can't say it, please don't attempt to. It hurts our ears.

5. Being able to laugh about horrible things because the cast's portrayal of Philly culture is so accurate

You have to laugh about the horrible things because there's nothing else to laugh about.

6. Thinking about finally getting home so you can re-watch all the episodes on Netflix

Or go to Paddy's Pub and watch it there!

While the idea of free time without a stressful job or an abundance of schoolwork looming over your head may sound like a dream, it can be a nightmare at times. Having a couple of days to decompress is needed for a healthy mind and body. But when too many days go by, it can cause a downward spiral of thoughts and feelings.

As a recent jobless graduate, I was ecstatic to be free from responsibility and take a break from my normal life. That was until I realized just how responsible I had been and needed to be to continue being self-sustained. I learned a few things in this month of unemployment that encouraged me to find a job as soon as possible.

8 Spotify Playlists To Get You In The Autumn Mood

The temperature may not be very Autumn-like, but these playlists sure are.

Autumn is my favorite time of the year. The leaves change, pumpkin spice everything hits the shelves (thank you, world!), the 13 Nights of Halloween on Freeform (formerly abcfamily) and the temperature drops. Well, the temperature is supposed to drop. Being in south Alabama, however, means that the temperature may be relatively low early in the mornings, but you're still going to suffer in the afternoon. So if the weather outside isn't getting you in the Autumn mood, maybe these Spotify playlists will help you slip into that wonderful, Autumn state of mind.

First Snow

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

First Snow

I have never understood why grown-ups complain when the leaves are all off the trees, and the temperatures take a decided turn towards the zero on the thermometer. I hear complaints about the impending winter weather, and the driving in the snow and ice. We live in Pennsylvania, so I bite my tongue instead of stating the obvious: Maybe you should move to a warmer climate?
