Oh, crime shows bring you a sense of calm too? Check out this list dude!!!

12 Crime Shows You Need To Watch That Will Make You Feel Like Spencer Reid When You're Done

Ever since I can remember, my family has settled down watching some show centered around a crime with a good storyline and a splash of mystery.

We all love it, especially if it has quality characters and a romantic relationship or two in there. Now I am not talking true crime (those freak me out, I am a 20-year-old girl and unfortunately at a prime age to get snatched).

I am talking - slightly realistic but made up enough that it doesn't give me nightmares.

These shows are sprinkled over Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime, so as long as you have access to one of those, this should be helpful for you!!!! I hope you love them as much as I do, go forth, and be consumed with the screen.

1. "Bones"

Can't say enough about how entertaining this show is. A forensic anthropologist and an NCIS agent work for the Jeffersonian and uncover the mysteries of victims while bantering constantly. I would like to hug the writer of this show.

2. "Criminal Minds"

A classic. A little too real for me if I am watching it home alone, but bingeing this show is so easy to do. The plotlines are great and the characters are better.

3. "Bull"

This is crime-meets-law-meets-psychology. Entertaining for all my future lawyers and anyone who has wondered how an argument can really win.

4. "Blue Bloods"

Family and crime baby. Wholesome in a way that is neither cheesy nor boring.

"Lie to Me"

More psychology than heavy crime, which is why I love it so much. The wit is immaculate.

6. "NCIS"

Ugh my first criminal show. Brilliant, Incredible, Amazing, Show-stopping, Spectacular...

"NCIS: Los Angeles"

Second best "NCIS." "NCIS" meets the beach, plus the characters are beautiful.

8. "How to Get Away with Murder"

So many plot lines, never enough episodes. You think you know how each plot line will end, and you'll be wrong. Easy to get consumed in.

9. "Quantico"

The characters are oddly beautiful. Training for the FBI would make a good show itself, but the twists and turns that Shonda adds in will keep you up watching past your bedtime.

10. "Person of Interest"

Awkward characters that you can't help but love. If you are already paranoid about being watched, don't watch this one.

11. "Monk"

This show was funnier when there wasn't a pandemic going on (making his germaphobic tendencies seem intelligent instead of comical now). A high strung detective and unique crimes, this older show always makes me laugh while keeping me entertained.

12. "White Collar"

I could watch this on mute and still love it (lol watch it and you will understand). Art and high class and wit mixed with ritzy New York criminals? What is there not to like?

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.
