"Friends" is one of the best shows out there and especially one of the best that is on Netflix. There are so many lessons and character developments throughout the show that pertain to young adults every day lives. This is a must watch show especially for those of us in our twenties!

'Friends' is a comedy television classic!


'Friends' is extremely relatable!


From relationships to finding jobs, each episode of 'Friends' teaches us life lessons even through a comedic way!

Reaches the audience of all ages


"Friends" reaches the audience of many people in their twenties but as well as younger and older crowds. There is a lot of lessons and life relatable events to relate to for a variety of ages. Relationship struggles, getting fired from a job, starting a family, joining a book club, etc.

The classic theme song


The theme song is so catchy and you know every word and makes you want to go jump in a fountain with a bunch of your friends!

It never gets old!


No matter how many times you binge watch "Friends" it never gets old even if you watch it every day!

No show compares!


"Friends" is one of the most watched shows out there, there is not a show that comes close to comparison with "Friends" and its characters.

Uproar of the fans!


The backlash Netflix received from the "Friends" fan base when they announced they would not be renewing the show. Renewing it was obviously the only way to wash out that storm from the fans!

Number of viewers


If Netflix went through with taking down "Friends" they would have lost a huge portion of their viewing base, there are so many "Friends" fans out there that watch it every day. Taking the show off Netflix would have harmed Netflix instead of benefiting Netflix.

Even 24 years later it is still a big hit!


"Friends" fan base grows each new year and still is growing all the time. Even after 24 years of being on television, it is still one of the biggest hits! Drawing in audiences from all around!

The characters!


Lets face it our life's would not be complete without characters like Joey or Candler to make us laugh everyday!

Even years later it still has one of the biggest fan bases and still has relatable content within the show to reach viewers of all ages and backgrounds! Life would not be the same without this show, Netflix made the best choice by renewing "Friends" for another year!

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.

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.
