5 Reasons FP Jones Is Riverdale's BEST Character

There's more to him than just a pretty face.

The CW

I think we can all agree that FP Jones was a little rough around the edges in the beginning of Riverdale -- drunk, unemployed, and really just not seeming to care -- but there's no denying how he's progressed throughout the seasons. I can easily say that FP is not only my favorite character, but he's all around the best character. Here's why:

*disclaimer -- spoilers ahead*

He's Done Bad Things, But Only Out Of Protection

Yes, yes, I know what you're all thinking: "But FP has done some really bad things!!" Well, for one: who hasn't done bad things in this show? Tell me. For two: everything bad he's done, he did it to protect someone else, which is at least a little bit admirable. For example, FP took the blame of killing Jason Blossom to protect his son Jughead even though it landed him in jail. Also, when he shot Hiram Lodge, he was only doing it out of revenge for Hiram's plot almost killing Jughead. While that's not a great reason, I can at least see where he was coming from. In any case, he's just trying his best, even if he makes some mistakes sometimes.

Kept The Peace As Leader Of The Serpents

When FP was the leader of the Southside Serpents, he kept the peace between the North and South sides so that there wouldn't be bloodshed. Despite all the issues with drugs and gang violence, he was always a peacemaker. Even after he retires from the Serpents at the end of the second season, he continues to help the Serpents by giving Jughead advice on how to keep the peace as much as possible so he can also be a great leader.

Best Sheriff The Town Has Had For A While

Of course, Sheriff Keller was a really good sheriff for the town, but FP speaks for both the Northside and the Southside equally, which made him an awesome asset to the Riverdale police department. Yes, he had Hermione whispering in his ear some of the time, but he did his best to stay impartial and speak for the people.

At The End Of The Day, He Would Do Anything For His Family

FP proves time and time again that he would do whatever it takes to keep Jughead safe, but what about the rest of his family? In Season Three we really get to see how much FP cares about his family (even if him and his wife are separated). When Jughead's mom comes back into FP and Jughead's life in Season Three, FP falls for her all over again. She even tells Jughead that it would break his heart to know what kind of person she truly is. She knows he has a big heart, and at the end of the day she's not afraid to use that to her advantage. Further, he gets shot trying to rescue Jellybean in a robbery attempt of Pops, despite being Sheriff of the town. No matter what the situation, FP is definitely one to do just about anything for his family, which is more than can be said for some of the other people in this show.

Finally, Just Look At Him

Alright, I admit that this one is a bit more superficial than the rest, but FP easily takes the cake of best Riverdale character when you combine his huge heart with his more-than-fine looks. I mean, in that Sheriff's uniform? Yes sir!

I could go on and on about why FP Jones is so great, but these specific five reasons (I think) are plenty to prove why FP is the best Riverdale character. He's grown so much throughout the three seasons Riverdale has had so far, and I can't wait to see what he's like in the new season.

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
