10 Movies And Shows To Watch On Netflix While You Should Be Doing Your Homework

Well, it's back-to-school season. New classes, new homework, new books, and maybe even a new school for some of us.

We should really all be focusing on our homework and our grades, but there's something so relaxing about laying down in bed with your laptop after a long day of classes and logging into Netflix just to binge-watch episodes of your favorite show for the next nine hours until you fall asleep.

These 10 movies and shows are the ones I have been enjoying so much over the last few days.

1. "Gossip Girl"

Yep, this is my go-to right now. A lot of my classes have been moved online because my professors are worried about COVID. I don't mind at all, because, between Zoom calls, this is what I'm doing. I can't tell you how many episodes I've watched today alone.

2. "Grey's Anatomy"

Unlike poor Cristina, I've already been sedated by all the binge-watching I've been doing. I don't care if you've watched this show a million times, it never gets old, and you can just watch it over and over again.

On the bright side, if you're going into the medical field, I guess you can say that this kind of counts as studying.

3. "To All The Boys I've Loved Before"

Nothing like a good romcom to watch alone in your bed when you could be at the library studying. You probably have a better chance of finding your own love story out in the real world, but oh well.

4. "Gilmore Girls"

I often ask myself why I can't be the perfect student like Rory Gilmore, and by now I think we all know the answer to that. But there is one thing I have in common with her and that is that I too, would really like a taco.

Honestly though, if you haven't watched this yet, I highly recommend, it's one of the best shows out there.

5. "The Kissing Booth"

Why are Netflix originals so good? It's really causing me an issue because all I want to do is watch them all day long. I've decided that Netflix should be outlawed.

6. "Jane the Virgin"

Again, if you haven't watched this one, you have to. It's hilarious and romantic all at the same time. You won't regret it, I promise.

7. "Life As We Know It"

Such a good movie, perfect for a lazy day. The new movies that Netflix just added are actually really good, and I 110 percent recommend this one.

8. "Definitely Maybe"

This is the first "grown-up" movie I remember watching as a kid and it's on Netflix now! If you haven't seen it yet, do yourself a favor and stop what you're doing (after you finish this article of course) and go watch it. It's just the sweetest rom-com ever!!

9. "Clueless"

Clueless.. exactly how I am when I look at any school work. This is a classic but only for teenagers and people who grew up in the '80s. I don't know, it's sweet but it'll also give you a good laugh, definitely a good time waster.

10. "A Walk To Remember"

Well, when you finish this, you can cry over it and your failing grades, and then quickly after that write a hate letter to Nicholas Sparks for creating such a movie. Definitely watch this if you're overly hydrated and need to get some tears out.

All this being said, if someone wants to hack into my Netflix account and change the password so I no longer have access to it, that would be greatly appreciated.

On a serious note, though, all of these shows and movies are actually amazing, and I highly recommend watching them if you haven't yet, and if you do, I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. But maybe only start watching them AFTER you've finished your homework for the evening.

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.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
