If you live in South Carolina and have entered a grocery store, it's clear to see that it is hurricane season. Flooding and hurricanes have occurred four years in a row, making this weather pretty normal around this time. This year, hurricane Florence is predicted to hit the Carolinas directly. Students may be thankful for the break to catch up on school work or may even evacuate home. Regardless, weather like this calls for a nap and binge-watching Netflix.

Whether you're working hard or bored at home, here are 10 Netflix suggestions for your hurricane break.

Criminal Minds

Who doesn't love a good crime show? This series has been one of my favorites since my freshman year of high school. It's about serial killers and FBI profilers who catch them. It also shows how the team copes with these situations in and out of the office. There are twelve seasons and almost 280 episodes, which should hopefully be more than enough to get you through the hurricane.

When We First Met

This movie is about a guy who finds a time machine that takes him back to the night he supposedly met the love of his life. He keeps changing things in hopes to eventually win the girl over. It's full of comedy and definitely worth the watch.

Riverdale

This series is about a small town that has a lot of secrets and drama. Teenagers have to deal with their family drama and figure out what led to the death of one of their fellow classmates. Cole Sprouse is one of the main characters, so that's a reason in itself to watch. It only has two seasons so far but is full of crime, mystery and plot twists.

Brain on Fire

This is a movie based on a journalist who got an unknown illness that caused her to become hospitalized. Doctors could not give her a diagnosis but her family was determined to find one. This movie was based upon true events which makes it so much more interesting. Chloë Grace Moretz is the lead and does an amazing job as the actress.

Gossip Girl

Anything with Blake Lively is worth watching, so here's a series that she's famously known for. These shows take place in Manhattan and show what drama private-school teens can get into. While they think they can get away with these malicious acts, a mysterious blogger is watching their every move and posting all of the tea.

Last Chance U 

This series is based on football players that have gone through hardships. They go to junior colleges in hopes to turn their lives around and make it on a professional team. The show presents how hard the players work as well as their teachers and coaches. It also shows what they do in the classroom, not just the field. There are four seasons, three pertaining to the first junior college, EMCC and the other about a totally different junior college in Indiana.

The Kissing Booth

Elle, played by Joey King, and her best friend have a set of rules they live by. One is that older brothers are off limits to date. Elle is secretly crushing on her best friend's brother but doesn't want to ruin their friendship. Eventually, she has to decide who to choose.

The Flash

I'm not one for superhero shows but I ended up loving these. The cast is perfect for this series and especially Grant Gustin, who plays The Flash. There are four seasons, so pace yourself; you'll binge watch them so quick you won't know what to do when they're over.

To All The Boys I've Loved Before

This is a romantic comedy that features an Asian-American woman, Lana Condor, as one of the leads. She writes letters to five of her crushes and keeps them in hiding until they are sent out. She then has to deal with the repercussions and ends up "pretend" dating one of the guys, Peter, who is played by Noah Centineo. Lana and Noah are a duo like no other, making this one of my favorite movies.

Friends

You could have guessed that this TV series was going to make the cut. A group of six friends in their twenties deals with love, drama and friendship over the course of ten years in New York. There are a total of 236 episodes, full of comedy and awkward situations. This series is the one you can't stop watching.

If you're drowning in assignments and need a break or just wishing you were back on campus (instead of at home), these recommendations should keep you occupied until we get back on a normal schedule.

10 Things Someone Who Grew Up In A Private School Knows

The 10 things that every private school-goer knows all too well.

1. Uniforms

Plaid. The one thing that every private school-goer knows all too well. It was made into jumpers, skirts, shorts, scouts, hair ties, basically anything you could imagine, the school plaid was made into. You had many different options on what to wear on a normal day, but you always dreaded dress uniform day because of skirts and ballet flats. But it made waking up late for school a whole lot easier.

2. New people were a big deal

New people weren't a big thing. Maybe one or two a year to a grade, but after freshman year no one new really showed up, making the new kid a big deal.

3. You've been to school with most of your class since Kindergarten


Most of your graduating class has been together since Kindergarten, maybe even preschool, if your school has it. They've become part of your family, and you can honestly say you've grown up with your best friends.

4. You've had the same teachers over and over

Having the same teacher two or three years in a row isn't a real surprise. They know what you are capable of and push you to do your best.

5. Everyone knows everybody. Especially everyone's business.

Your graduating class doesn't exceed 150. You know everyone in your grade and most likely everyone in the high school. Because of this, gossip spreads like wildfire. So everyone knows what's going on 10 minutes after it happens.

6. Your hair color was a big deal

If it's not a natural hair color, then forget about it. No dyeing your hair hot pink or blue or you could expect a phone call to your parents saying you have to get rid of it ASAP.

7. Your school isn't like "Gossip Girl"

There is no eating off campus for lunch or casually using your cell phone in class. Teachers are more strict and you can't skip class or just walk right off of campus.

8. Sports are a big deal

Your school is the best of the best at most sports. The teams normally go to the state championships. The rest of the school that doesn't play sports attends the games to cheer on the teams.

9. Boys had to be clean-shaven, and hair had to be cut

If you came to school and your hair was not cut or your beard was not shaved, you were written up and made to go in the bathroom and shave or have the head of discipline cut your hair. Basically, if you know you're getting written up for hair, it's best just to check out and go get a hair cut.

10. Free dress days were like a fashion show

Wearing a school uniform every day can really drive you mad. That free dress day once a month is what you lived for. It was basically a fashion show for everyone, except for those upperclassmen who were over everything and just wore sweat pants.

22 Things Parents Should Send Their Children At College, If They Love And Miss Them

We're getting to that point in the semester, y'all.

Even though college students are just a little over a month into the spring semester, we are already feeling high amounts of stress over tests and papers. Nobody said college was going to be easy, and this statement is ringing truer and truer each day. So, to the parents, grandparents, or anybody else who loves us and cares about our well being, here are 22 things you should send us if you love and miss our presence.

1. Gift cards to the local grocery store. 

Preferably Walmart or Food Lion, since that's all we have here in Farmville, VA.

2. Room decor from the Target dollar section. 

Or anything from Target, for that matter. Some college towns don't have one of these glorious establishments, and we are experiencing withdrawals.

3. School supplies. 

You can never have too many sticky notes or colored pens.

4. Mints. 

Because some people need it after lunch, and gum is disgusting.

5. A cozy blanket. 

For those cold nights spent in the library until 2 in the morning.

6. A handwritten letter. 

These are one of my favorite things to get in the mail, and there is always something so sentimental about snail mail.

7. A giant box of fruit snacks...

Definitely one of my favorite grab and go snacks.

8. ... Or candy, in general. 

Preferably, gummies. But, I won't refuse chocolate candy either.

9. Cash. 

For those late night Taco Bell runs, or just to make us feel a little bit better about ourselves.

10.  A funny movie/DVD. 

There's something so simple and serene about watching a funny movie on a DVD player that brings us back to the less stressful times of our childhood.

11.  Hot chocolate mix. 

I always get random cravings for hot chocolate, but it's never enough to make me want to go buy a box of mix.

12.  Starbucks/Dunkin Donuts gift cards. 

Because the majority of our lives revolve around coffee, and sometimes our Keurigs just don't cut it.

13.  Peanut butter crackers. 

These are so quick and easy to eat between classes (or if you're like me, IN class).

14.  Scent diffuser. 

This can be even better if you send a scent that reminds us of home.

15.  Hair ties. 

For some reason, I only own about five at a time because I am always losing these!

16.  Homemade cookies/brownies. 

These always make me so happy knowing my mom took time out of her busy day to think of me and bake yummy treats.

17.  Gift cards for our favorite online shopping stores. 

What better way to relieve stress than buy clothes you don't need?

18.  Nail polish. 

You can never have too many bottles of the same shade of pink.

19.  Mug warmer. 

These help keep your cup of coffee warm for long periods of time so you don't end up wasting such a sacred drink.

20.  Lysol wipes/hand sanitizer. 

I go both of these things at an alarming rate because some places are just plain disgusting.

21.  Band-aids. 

No one ever really thinks of buying these, but they work for so many more reasons than their typical use.

22.  iTunes gift card. 

For all those "educational apps" our professors tell us to buy. *wink wink*

Every college student loves getting a care package in the mail, so if you really love and miss us, please send one our way!
