Grace and Frankie, One of Netlix's Best

Two complelty different women in thier 70's living together, what could go wrong?

Grace and Frankie, One of Netlix's Best

Grace and Frankie is quite possibly one of the best Netflix Original's I have watched so far. It's fun, daring, modern and absolutely hilarious. In case you've never heard of this show I highly recommend you add it to your list and binge watch it.

For those of you who aren't as daring to start a show on impulse, let me give you some background information. Grace and Frankie are two women in their 70's who are as different as day and night. On the exterior they couldn't be more different, Grace is an elegant, work addicted, business woman and Frankie is a free spirit, hippie, artist. As different as they may be they share one huge similarity, their husbands are no longer in love with them. Plot twist, they're actually in love with each other and have been having an affair for over 20 years. Now these two women who couldn't stand each other must learn how to live together and start a new life as divorcees.

I never realized how much I needed a show like this until I watched it. It gives me the hope that one day I'll be 70 and still killing the game like always, unafraid of the unknown and up for an adventure. I'll be the first to admit that I wouldn't have expected to enjoy as much as I have but I love it! Although it may be about women who are more than twice my age, I still find it to be relatable and familiar. I love the various themes it covers such as modern complex relationships, friendships with exes, weak joints and bad knees, inevitable death of friends as you get older, heart diseases and many more.

If you have a best friend, I hope you watch this together, I can assure you that you will start to see yourself in either Grace or Frankie. I know I do. Their dynamic is hilarious and refreshing. So if you're not watching anything on Netflix right now then look up Grace and Frankie and start watching.

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.

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.
