11 Reasons 'The Bold Type' is a must-watch for summer

Come for the women, stay for the message

The Bold Type

ICYMI, Freeform has an incredible show that premiered last summer and came back for its second season this year.

"The Bold Type" follows 3 best friends working at a Scarlet, a women's magazine in NYC and navigates a number of complex topics while still keeping it light and fun.

Here are ## reasons you should add "The Bold Type" to your summer must-watch list.

1. Female friendships

Don't we all wish we had friends like Jane, Kat, and Sutton? The intimacy, honesty, and realness of their relationships, with all their ups and downs, makes you feel like you're friends with them at the end of each episode.

2. Diversity

With cast and characters of all different races, genders, sexual orientations, and backgrounds, "The Bold Type" captures a wide variety of people and their experiences.

3. Big issues

From immigration to cancer to gun control to female orgasms, "The Bold Type" isn't afraid to tackle tough topics, which is refreshing and super relevant in today's political culture.

4. New York City

Who doesn't love a show that's based in NYC?

5. Professional development

The show isn't all about going out and having fun with your friends. It also addresses what it's like to break into the professional world in your 20's.

6. Amazing bosses

Can all bosses be this nice and supportive, pls and thx?

7. Sex positivity

It's 2018. Sex positivity is in and telling women what to do with their bodies is out. Thank you for coming to my TED Talk.

8. The message

Jane, Kat, and Sutton kill it with the real life applications.

9. The romance

From steamy secret work romances to first loves to discovering your sexuality, "The Bold Type" does a great job interjecting fun romantic storylines to lighten up the more serious moments of the show.

10. The fashion

(And mainly the fashion closet, where all the best conversations happen).

11. The painful feeling when it ends

Like all summer flings, it must come to an end, but fingers crossed it'll be back next summer!

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.

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.
