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.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Fibonacci Sequence Examples: 7 Beautiful Instances In Nature

Nature is beautiful (and so is math). The last one will blow your mind.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

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.
