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.

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
