9 TV Shows That Deserve To Be Binge Watched

I have always been a big viewer of so many television shows. I have watched dramas like ABC/CMT's "Nashville". I have watched comedies like NBC's "Parks and Recreation". I watch reality tv shows like E!'s "Keeping Up with the Kardashians". I have watched crime thrillers like NBC's "The Blacklist".

One of my favorite free time activities is watching TV or streaming Netflix or Hulu.

I know in this day in age, a lot of people prefer to watch their favorite television shows on streaming services or on demand because people don't want to watch commercials. They are boring and repetitive.

Binge watching has become a normal thing in our lives over the past six years or so because of on demand and streaming services

On my social media feeds, I always see my friends asking for recommendations for old or new television shows to binge watch on Netflix and Hulu.

They are so many shows out there to watch. I didn't even know how to begin creating a list of shows you can binge watch next but I tried to the best I could with shows I loved to binge watch by myself or with my friends.

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.

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.
