I Watched 'Shameless' On Netflix, And Here's 5 Things You Need To Know Before You Watch

This may or may not be my second time watching the show, so I'd consider myself an expert.

Shameless cast

"Shameless" first aired in 2011 and followed with eleven subsequent seasons. The Gallagher gang is full of surprises as they take on the many challenges of growing up in the South side of Chicago. Fiona Gallagher, the eldest sibling, takes on raising five children in the absence of their mother and as her father Frank spends most of his time drinking at the local pub. Here are some of the major things to be weary of as you indulge on this show.

1. There is always a new low.

Shameless has to be the best show for always finding a new low in the Gallagher's lives. Most of these will make you feel a lot better about your life and all of the things you don't have to worry about on a daily basis.

2. Frank will unexpectedly parent at the most random of times.

Although usually drunk and clawing around for a new way to make money to buy more booze, Frank will unexpectedly parent every now and then. He actually has some pretty wise things to say but that doesn't override the fact that most of the time he's using one of the kids to get something he wants.

3. There are tons of sexual scenes - beware.

Most of the show is centered around who's banging who. It's hard to go an episode without at least one sex scene, so be weary if any youngins are around while you watch.

4. The Gallaghers always find a way out of it.

It may seem that one of the Gallaghers is always finding themselves in a pickle. Surprisingly, they always find a way out - whether it's framing or threatening someone. This is what makes the show all the worth-while to watch.

5. You will undoubtedly become obsessed with the Gallagher family.

In the strangest way ever, you will instantly be hooked on "Shameless" and binging episodes awaiting the next big thing to reek havoc in the Gallagher's lives so they can find their way out. The show is full of many twists and turns that will keep you hooked.

If I haven't scared you off yet, then you should hop onto Netflix and get binging on all eleven seasons.

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.
