What Makes A Good TV Show?
I Am Optimism Man

Over the years and with the access to Netflix I have been able to watch a variety of television shows. Growing up my family rarely had cable TV. We would often borrow DVDs from the library. We also owned "Friends," "Gilmore Girls," and "Dawson’s Creek." From that I have developed an interest in shows that demonstrate that similar friend group. Shows like "How I Met Your Mother" and "New Girl" provide that friend dynamic that is very comedic. I enjoy laughing. I went through a phase of watching stand-up comedy on Netflix. From here I was introduced to Netflix originals that have become increasingly popular. I watched Aziz Ansari "Master of None," which showed examples of his comedy in a television show format similar to Louis CK's "Louie." "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" is a Netflix Original series that is extremely unique in its plot. I have also enjoyed watching shows that are more serious. "Grey’s Anatomy" provides its audience with a lot of suspense. Shows like "Gossip Girl" are more socially dramatic. I like crime shows like "Dexter." I watched "Chuck," which is a series about spies. Another popular trend seen in entertainment is the revitalization of superheroes. I liked watching "Heroes" growing up. Out of the superheroes series that have been introduced I am fond of "Flash." These are some of the qualities that I think make a good TV series...

1. A good television show starts with good characters. ("Friends")

2. They contain a dynamic friend group. ("How I Met Your Mother")

3.They make you feel like a connected member. ("Modern Family")

4. You fight for the hero and support their development. ("Flash")

5. The show has a love that inspires you and forces you to make hard decisions. ("Dawson’s Creek")

6. You see their growth and encourage their maturing. ("Gilmore Girls")

7. They provide you with crazy drama that shocks your life. ("Gossip Girl")

8. They cause you pain and heartbreak. ("Grey’s Anatomy")

9. But then they can cause you to laugh hysterically. ("New Girl")

10. And the best are the shows you can quote and relate to with every situation, the ones you have seen over and over again. These are the shows that get you hooked...

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

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.
