I'm Convinced We've ALL Seen These Television Shows

Unless you've been living under a rock, you should have seen at least a few episodes of these shows!

As a society, we often share common events, ideas, and values that hold us together. Well, I'm convinced these shows will be another connecting factor. Growing up, these shows could be found on the various television stations. They were simply always on and available for people's viewing pleasure.

If you've never seen these classic shows, you need to do some research and binge watch some episodes. Worst comes to worst, you could always bring these shows up as conversation starters during awkward moments. Who wouldn't even like to rewatch some of these shows? I know I'm definitely still a fan of Love It or List It!

So, have you seen these 15 television shows???

1. Wife Swap

The families were always complete opposites. Strict versus Lenient. Religious versus Atheistic. Athletic versus Artistic.

2. Chopped

You never know what odd ingredients will be found in the baskets. Can you make a dish from chocolate, exotic mushrooms, squid, and Ritz crackers? Me neither. Yet, these chefs always seem to pull through with delectable meals.

3. Love It or List It

The best part about this show is guessing — often incorrectly — if the families will "love it" or "list it."

4. Undercover Boss

With a change of clothes and a new hairdo, the employees never knew who their "new colleague" was.

5. Shark Tank

Often times, the inventions and products were genuinely useful and applicable for daily life. While most pitches were "innovative," there were also some humorous businesses and products thrown into the mix as well.

6. American Ninja Warrior

This show was always so intense . . . and often times humorous!

7. What Not To Wear

We all used to eat this show up! Everyone used to think, "Can I have $5,000 to buy a new wardrobe, please?"

8. Wipeout

This obstacle course competition was a comedy to say the least.

9. Cake Boss

We all used to envy those cake creations on Cake Boss. They looked stunning and probably tasted even better.

10. Cupcake Wars

Cupcakes became so popular a few years ago. Cupcake Wars only grew the trend and fueled the debate of "Cupcakes versus Sheet Cake."

11. Extreme Makeover: Home Edition

As a kid, I was always mesmerized by the house transformations on this show. Plus, who doesn't like shouting "MOVE THAT BUS!" over and over again.

12. American Idol

The original American Idol was a must-watch in my household. We had contestants like Carrie Underwood, Chris Daughtry, Jordin Sparks, Kelly Clarkson, David Archuleta and many more successes.

13. Jeopardy

You will ALWAYS learn something new when watching Jeopardy!

14. Storage Wars

It's always a gamble. Will the packed storage container be filled with treasures or garbage for the trash?

15. Say Yes to the Dress

The suspense! Which dress will they choose?

Make sure to count up the number of television shows you've seen, and share your score with friends. If you've seen a majority of these shows at least once, then you're a true MVP.

Not only does nature exert a bountiful force on adults, but it also serves as a therapeutic antidote to children, especially during their developmental years.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

I have been excited for this movie ever since I saw the NYC skyline in the trailer that was released earlier this year. I'm a sucker for any movie or TV show that takes place in the Big Apple.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.

Open-mindedness. It is something we all need a reminder of some days. Whether it's in regards to politics, religion, everyday life, or rarities in life, it is crucial to be open-minded. I want to encourage everyone to look at something with an unbiased and unfazed point of view. I oftentimes struggle with this myself.
