They're just so good, so watch them only if you have good self-control.

5 TV Shows On Netflix To Avoid During Finals Season

Finals season is slowly approaching, and if you're anything like me, it probably means that the desire to binge watch shows also slowly approaches. But I must resist the urge and avoid some of my favorite television shows on Netflix. Definitely, do not start watching these shows if your GPA means anything at all to you:


This show centers around the Gallaghers, a dysfunctional family living in poverty in Chicago. The kids, Fiona, Lip, Ian, Debbie, Carl, and Liam all have their separate issues dealing with family, money, relationships, or school, creating more drama which leads to a good binge-watching session.


This intense show keeps you on the edge of your seat in every episode. It focuses on military veteran David Budd, who is hired to protect controversial politician Julia Montague. They have completely different political views, but they must learn to trust each other. The tension between them is so severe that it leads to binge-watching.

"Gossip Girl"

This show is a classic, but still binge-worthy. The socialites of the Upper East Side always have drama in their lives, and it's interesting to see how they deal with it. And if it's your first time watching, you'll be glued to the screen if you want to find out who Gossip Girl truly is.

"The Haunting of Hill House"

This supernatural horror series follows five siblings whose paranormal experiences at Hill House continues to haunt them till the present day. It also flashes back to the day when the family departs from the haunted house. As the plot progresses, there is increased anticipation, which adds up to a chilling binge-watching experience.

"New Girl"

"New Girl" follows the life of a quirky woman named Jess as she moves into an apartment with three other guys. This is such a feel-good show that it leaves you smiling and laughing along with the characters in each episode. But it's not just another meaningless sitcom; there's an overarching plotline that makes you want to keep watching.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.


Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.

With the dawn of social media comes an entirely new character: the Facebook politician. Usually, articles or posts about politics are fairly sporadic. That is until a major event happens. Suddenly, everyone knows everything about everything. Everyone seems to have a very strong opinion. Everyone is super knowledgeable, and what better vessel of information than they themselves? Which is pretty reasonable, given that people’s emotions run high when something major happens. And I don’t blame them, emotions are good!

The Gift Of Basketball

The NBA playoffs remind me of my basketball journey through time

Syracuse Basketball

I remember that when I was very little, my dad played in an adult basketball league, and I remember cheering him on with everything in me. I also remember going to Tuscola basketball games when the old floor was still there and the bleachers were still wooden. I remember always wanting to play basketball like my dad, and that's just what I did.

Plus Size Appreciation: How I Learned To Love My Body

Because it is okay to not be "skinny."


In America, we tend to stick up our noses at certain things that aren't the norm. For example, people who are overweight, or the politically correct term “obese." Men and women who are overweight get so much backlash because they are not skinny or "in shape," especially, African-American women, who are typically known for having wider hips and thicker thighs. Robert Darryl, an African-American filmmaker, explains the overall intention of the body mass index in his follow-up sequel, “America the Beautiful 2: The Thin Commandments."
