7 Netflix Shows and Series to Consider Watching

This is a response to Films In The Spirit Of Summer.

As an avid reader and viewer of film and television, I love watching television shows and films. Being able to analyze the context and setting of my favorite show and understanding the relation between social constructs of today’s society is intriguing to me. Being able to access the digital libraries of popular film hubs can give viewers cinematic experiences from the comfort of their own homes. We can watch new shows and films or take to nostalgic tendencies of familiarized cinema.

I will not go into depth on my list of television shows, because I feel like I could give a never-ending list or description as to why I love these shows. But let us get started with a list of show recommendations from Netflix.

“Emily in Paris”

Follows Chicago marketing executive Emily Cooper embracing a new job and potential promotion as she travels to Paris.

“Stranger Things”

The show follows a group of individuals in a small town in Indiana uncovering supernatural activities and government exploitation. With season 5 to come out, **hopefully soon**, this show will be on anyone's recommended list.

“The Maid”

Follows a young mother seeking refuge from an abusive relationship while trying to support her and her child's life to build a better future. This show gives the viewers insights on a true story of a mother's life and can allow viewers to better understand these sorts of situations.

“The Rain”

Follows young survivors of a rain-borne virus seeking safety and figuring out the truth behind government doors. I am really intrigued by this show, and I was on the edge of my seat the whole time.


This follows the friendship of three young women in high school as they attend a Shoplifters Anonymous group.


A romance story following the lives of siblings in the Bridgerton family trying to find love. During the Regency era, a sub-period of the longer Georgian Era, which dated the years of 1811 to 1820. This era is noted for well-known authors, styles of art, and fashions. The gestures of romance, yet betrayals played out by characters are so intriguing.

All these shows are on Netflix currently, I totally recommend watching all of them. But I cannot just stop at Netflix, right? We all have our favorite shows not just constricted to on platform. Other amazing shows not on Netflix to consider are “Survivor,” “Only Murders in the Building,” “Pretty Little Liars,” and “The Bold Type.”

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.
