'Gossip Girl': Your Next Netflix Binge Worthy Show

If you can't find a new series to watch because you're still balling your eyes out after One Tree Hill, then Gossip Girl is definitely for you! Life in the Upper East Side of Manhattan, NY is completely different from the life in Central Arkansas.

The show is narrated by the unknown, infamous blogger, Gossip Girl. She begins and ends every episode with the latest gossip. Her target is Manhattan's Elite: Serena van der Woodsen, Blair Waldorf, Nate Archibald, and Chuck Bass. Some include Dan Humphrey in Manhattan's Elite and some do not.

"Xoxo, Gossip Girl"

Serena and Blair are what you call "best frenemies" because they consider themselves best friends, but when it comes down to it they will do whatever it takes to destroy each other. Nate and Chuck are the only two who have a genuine friendship throughout the entire series. Serena struggles with daddy issues by using her body to attract the wrong men. Blair struggles with confidence by forcing everyone to bow down to her as Queen B. Nate struggles with actual family issues, and tries his best to resolve them in a genuine manner. Chuck has an unhealthy lust for women because he struggles to get his one true love. Dan struggles with fitting into the Upper East Side society. He's willing to do whatever it takes to fit in.

Gossip Girl swoops in to report the hourly mistakes and imperfections of Manhattan's Elite. The goal of the show is for not only the characters to find out who Gossip Girl is, but for us to find out first!

On a 5 star rating scale, I would give this show 4.5/5. Gossip Girl isn't for everyone, but it has an addictive plot that makes it hard to turn off. If this show is for you, you will find yourself at 3:00 am with crusty eyes whispering, "Just one more episode and I'll turn it off." 6 Seasons full of laughter and drama. You'll laugh, cry, scream, and possibly throw your laptop, but it's worth it!

If you liked One Tree Hill, Vampire Diaries, 90210, and Pretty Little Liars then you'll love Gossip Girl!!!

An Atlanta Weekend

A New Yorker's quick weekend in Atlanta.


On a weekend visit to Atlanta, I had to adjust to people being personable and congenial to me. Although I had lived in the South before, I had to get reacquainted with southern hospitality due to visiting from Brooklyn. Atlanta Uber drivers are very down to earth, offer snacks, and provide great genuine conversations. The opposite is the lay of the land from Brooklyn Uber drivers. The southern hospitality is provided not only from the Uber drivers, but restaurant servers, cashiers, or random people giving suggestions. Brooklyn is a dope and unique place to live, but short on the warmth more often than not.

20 Traditional Hispanic Recipes To Feast On In Honor Of Hispanic Heritage Month

... in case you needed another excuse to eat empanadas and churros.

20 Traditional Hispanic Recipes To Feast On In Honor Of Hispanic Heritage Month

Like many of my wanderlust-ridden friends and family, I'll travel anywhere for the promise of good food. I once went to Thailand in pursuit of traditional massaman curry and Spain for authentic patatas bravas — neither of which let me down.

What usually ends up being the biggest letdown is coming home to miss the traditional, local cuisine. It may not have quite the same ambiance, but trying to cook authentic dishes at home can increase appreciation for the craft and culture behind them.

Ms. Alinejad shares photos of men in hijabs and women inside Iran who have taken part in a moment of 'stealthy freedom' by removing their hijabs to the outside world.

Be careful what you do and post


Going to Las Vegas for the weekend is practically a sacramental right of passage in college. It’s so crucial to our early adulthood development that Snapchat even made a filter that says “Vegas for the Weekend.” Damn Snapchat, you really do get it.
