Mad Men Is A Must-Watch On Netflix

7 seasons worth of smooth-talking businessmen, love affairs, and family drama will keep you on the edge of your seat.

Mad Men Is A Must-Watch On Netflix

If you're anything like me, you love coming home after a busy day and diving into your favorite TV series. "Breaking Bad", "Sons of Anarchy", "Prison Break", "Dexter", "13 Reasons Why"--Netflix has them all. "Mad Men", specifically, is a great choice to quench your thirst for all things business, comedy, and drama.

Don Draper (Jon Hamm) is a handsome, successful head of an advertising firm in the 1960s. The firm, Sterling Cooper, is one of many competing advertising agencies on Madison Avenue in New York. Don serves as a family man to his model wife, Betty, and numerous young children. Roger Sterling is a partner at the firm and a big wig, serving as the master orator and diplomat to clients and potential clients. He has a wife, Mona, and a younger daughter. Draper and Sterling take advantage of their looks and charm to get what they desire, regardless of how it impacts their relationships along the way.

The show, quite literally, makes you want to be in the shoes of main character Don. Picture this: a hustling, bustling New York agency. Bosses and workers smoking and drinking alike, fueling ad ideas and engagements with clients. Love affairs within the office, and a fair share of dirty dealings. This series allows you to be a fly on the wall of a true 1960s business environment.

If you're a viewer who appreciates workplace humor, juicy storylines, and an old-school vibe, "Mad Men" is the show for you. Give it a peep.

Bruce Springsteen's Top 7 Lyrics

Everything Bruce says in his classic rock songs.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

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.
