My Top 5 Most Influential TV Shows

Being the TV/movie lover that I am I have a very long list of TV shows that have blown me away, but that's for another time. These are some of the TV shows that taught me valuable lessons while simultaneously capturing my attention and forcing me to get invested with each character. Of course, you may have different opinions for each of them, these are just my personal experiences with each show.

Game Of Thrones


Revenge. Power. Love. This incredible series teaches you how the people you love the most may not be who you thought they were. It shows how anyone is able to change if they want to. Though this takes place in a completely different time period it addresses many topics that relate back to our society. It shows that anyone can become a hero or a villain. The show does a great job of getting you attached to characters who develop throughout the series. I have to say that not only is this one of my favorite shows but it also taught me how to be a strong, opinionated individual.

Grey’s Anatomy


This show tackles a lot of issues in my opinion. Not only does it deal a lot with mental health issues but it also shows the audience that everyone has problems in their life and the only way to get through it is to have a good support system. This is one of the shows that I have found myself continually crying. The series does a great job of giving you different perspectives of all the characters' lives while still only focusing on one character. You also get attached to the characters very easily because the show makes you feel as if you were living the life of the character. This show may not appeal to everyone, but if you get the opportunity to watch it I would suggest doing so.

American Horror Story


American Horror Story is one of the first shows that was impactful on me at a young age. It tackles issues like bullying, mental illness, and self-worth. Also, each season is a different storyline meaning that you never get bored. On top of that, it's a horror show so you're always on your toes wondering what's gonna happen next.

Orange Is The New Black


This is also one of the shows that were a tearjerker. Orange Is The New Black also tackles some of the issues that we are facing in our society. The show taught me that you shouldn't judge someone by what they have done or looked like.

New Girl


New Girl is always seen as a comedy but in my opinion, it's a little more than that. This series shows what true family is while following the lives of roommates. It shows that just because you aren't related to someone doesn't mean that they aren't family. Similar to Grey's Anatomy this series shows that even if you are going through a rough time you will get through it with a support system.

beer on the beach

Summer is hot and humid, and it's almost like summer was made specifically to drink the refreshing, cold, crisp wonderful, delicious, nutritious nectar of the gods. Which is none other than beer; wonderful cold beer. With summer playing peek-a-boo around the corner while we finish up this semester, it's time to discuss the only important part of summer. And if you haven't already guessed, it's beer. There are few things I take more seriously than my beer, in order are: sports... and beer. Here are my favorite summer brews:

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.

You cannot beat the beach. Believe it or not (which many people may not), New England has a long and beautiful coastline. Most of my high school summers were spent sitting on the Wall at Hampton Beach, getting sunburnt and eating Acai bowls from The Secret Spot. The Wall was the place to be both during the day and at night. We begin our days there with a KB's bagel and coffee, and end them with pizza and ice cream. It’s not a New England summer without that 4 p.m. text from someone, “Who wants to meet at the Wall tonight?” Nighttime is for Tripoli’s Pizza, the sound of waves, and wishes on shooting stars. Wednesday nights are especially important, as those are the nights that Hampton Beach sets off the weekly firework display.
