"You" quotes

Penn Badgley plays the role of a psycho stalker bookstore manager. One day he meets an attractive woman named Beck when she visits the store, and he instantly falls in love - or whatever.

My favorite part about this show is that before this show, Penn played the role of Dan in "Gossip Girl." For anyone who hasn't seen "Gossip Girl" before, the rest of this paragraph is a ~spoiler alert~ so skip it if you need to. Anyways, Dan technically stalked many of his friends and classmates to run the Gossip Girl website. So ironically he ends up playing the role of another stalker in love with a blonde, but in "You," he's a psycho.

This show is mostly from the thoughts of Penn's character, Joe, and gets you in the mind of a psycho stalker. Although the show is very dark, Joe and Beck's quotes on love and dating are actually super relatable.

1. "I'm starting to think I'm a magnet for dudes with serious issues" - Beck

Relatable.

2. "I don't know who I am so how am I supposed to know what I want?" - Beck

Me on a daily basis.

3. "It's a miracle love ever happens...if it's not a myth" - Joe

Still trying to figure that one out.

4. "You know better but you can't stop because everyone needs someone" - Joe

How many times have you made the wrong decision because you're lonely?

5. "I'm a maybe and you're still screwing other people?" - Joe

Today's hook up culture basically. Thanks Tinder.

6. "Thinking you're right for someone and you're not" - Joe, "I got about a dozen of those" - Beck

Shoutout to the exes!

7. "Let's face it, I am no good for you" - Beck

It's crazy because Beck is way better than Joe, but because she's a girl, she's conditioned to constantly think that she's not good for the guy she is interested in.

8. "Ah, Beck, you're a disaster" - Beck

Me @ me.

9. "Love yourself. Ghost him already" - Peach, Beck's friend

Ghosting someone who cares about you is bad. Ghosting someone who you care about who obviously doesn't give a shit about you? That's self-love.

10. "Maybe this is what you need to find your inner badass" - Beck

In this episode, she was referencing alone time. I personally couldn't agree more. Alone time is necessary to truly dig into your mind and figure out what you actually want in life.

11. "You're barking up the wrong tree if you think I'm going to sit here and validate that man" - Beck

Preach. Ladies you do not need to accept and forgive men who have done you wrong.

12. "Every guy I try to date is a mess or trying to be something he thinks he should" - Beck

I'd say this is pretty accurate.

13. "But they seem happy, according to Facebook" - Beck

You know what they say, believe everything you see on the internet!

14. "How am I supposed to be great with you being gone if you're actually gone?" - Joe

Joe was okay without Beck in his life, but he regularly checked up on her Facebook anyways. After she deleted her accounts he could no longer do that and he started to freak out. When you know what someone is up to, it's easier to be okay without them because it's like you're not missing out on anything. The hard part is learning to be okay with knowing nothing about their life.

The first season of "You" is dark, twisty, and only 10 episodes long. Perfect for syllabus week binge watching!

I Was At The Atlanta George Floyd Protests, Here's What It Was Like Before The Violence Started

What started out as a peaceful protest quickly resulted in destruction, with mixed opinions leading narratives on both sides.

When I heard about the protests happening in my city in honor of George Floyd, a black man who was brutally and fatally detained by police in broad daylight, I was conflicted about the best way for me to support a cause that I was passionate about. The senseless killings of people of color in America had been weighing on me, and I was eager for a way to help, to do my part. I wanted to be out on the ground with my community, having our voices heard. However, there was the issue of the coronavirus, a very real and troublesome threat that is still controlling our daily lives.

If You Can Eat Crap And Stay Thin You Aren't Healthy, You're Lucky

A high metabolism isn't a get-out-of-jail-free card!

Everyone has that one friend — the one who eats to their heart's content but never gains an ounce. Meanwhile, you feel like you gain five pounds just stealing a glance at a hamburger! My childhood best friend was like that, much to my chagrin. Anyone who hadn't witnessed her eat might be tempted to say that she was thin because of her diet, but she would sometimes eat a bag of Sour Patch Kids as a "meal." One time, I watched in awe as she chowed down on a "salad" made up of one part romaine lettuce, two parts shredded cheddar cheese, and two parts French dressing — it was nothing more than a red lake of dressing with bits of green and orange debris floating in it. Clearly our definitions of "salad" were quite different, as were our perceptions of a balanced meal.
