New Girl, The Modern Day Friends?

As a college student and an avid TV/Netflix watcher I haveto say one of my favorite shows by far is New Girl. It’s one of those shows that no matter what mood or what time of day it is this show satisfies, to me it is like a modern day Friends.

New Girl, The Modern Day Friends?

For those of you who haven’t seen it, New Girl begins when the main character Jessica (Jess), a bubbly young teacher whose boyfriend cheated on her, answers an ad on Craig’s list looking for a new roommate. Her new roommates turn out to be three young men: Nick, Schmidt, and Winston. From there the show follows how their friendship develops, their interconnected lives as they navigate through complex romantic relationships, their career choices, and ultimately shows their growth as they try and find their place in the world.

This show has it all smart and witty humor, drama, romance, and perfectly imperfect characters. Guys and girls alike will be hard-pressed to not find at least one of the characters they can’t relate to. Overall it has won me over and often my friends and I will get together just to watch it. Have I convinced you to watch it yet? If not, here are a few of my favorite quotes from the show that hopefully you will find as entertaining as I did! (For those of you who already watch New Girl I know you must be as excited as I am for the new season premiere Tuesday, September 16th!)

There is something serious I have to tell you about the future. The name of my first-born child needs to be Reginald Vel Johnson

I lost a bet to Schmidt. –Nick   

Girl, I got an a...sandwich...meeting. –Winston   

I'm in a limo! I wish I had really long legs so I could stretch 'em out the length of the limo! –Jess  

He's so soft, like a towel. -Jess

It goes without saying what July 4th symbolizes for Americans and undoubtedly its more important holiday. From parades to foods to speeches, all Americans know that it relates to the day when the 13 original colonies broke free of England, then ruled by King George III. A sometimes-overlooked aspect of Independence Day is bonding with family and friends. That is, after all, where my favorite memories were.

How I Went From Pro-Life To Pro-Choice

"No one can make you do this."


I was raised in a strict, Irish-Catholic family. My parents and grandparents, even though I love them, instilled many beliefs in me that I came to disagree with as I grew older, things like "homosexuality is weird and wrong." I eventually rejected many of these ideas once I began growing into myself, but there was always one belief I let ring true well into my teen years: abortion is the murder of an unborn baby.

Trip to The City of Dreams

In a city that never sleeps, with constant bustling and hustling in the streets, my friend and I venture out to see what the "Big Apple" is all about.

Trip to The City of Dreams

There are so many ways for one to describe the beautiful city of New York. It is breathtaking, exciting and alive all in one. Taking a trip here was absolutely the adventure of a lifetime for me and I'm so grateful to have gotten to see all there is to do in the "City of Dreams" with one of my best friends.
