10 things your TV would do if it were ACTUALLY a smart tV

It's 2018. Why aren't all of these already a thing?

10 things your TV would do if it were ACTUALLY a smart tV

LADIES imagine this. It's 10 years from now. It's a Sunday morning.

You wake up to the beautiful sunrise next to your husband. You're eating Cocoa Pebbles and he's eating Lucky Charms. Your *Smart TV* has recorded 20 episodes of SpongeBob, Powerpuff Girls, Sabrina the Teenage Witch AND Fresh Prince WHILE you were sleeping. You're living your best life.

Here are 10 things you *wish* your "Smart TV" would actually do:

Increase the volume when you start eating chips.


It is 2018. Why isn't this already a thing and why is nobody talking about that?

Shock your siblings when they try to steal the remote.


Touch my remote ONE. MORE. TIME.

Refrains from passive aggressively asking, "are you still watching," when you so obviously are.


Maybe a different approach would be more effective. "I'm not judging you Allyson, but are you still watching? You're right, dumb question." *continues to play the Netflix show I was binging*

Automatically pauses when the oven timer for your pizza goes off.


What's a good movie marathon without pizza?

Pauses the movie/show you are watching if you accidentally fall asleep.


No longer are the days you have to rewind all the way back to what you last remember.

Records nostalgic TV shows/movies you watched as a kid.


The recording possibilities are endless. SpongeBob, Fresh Prince, Rugrats, Full House, Powerpuff Girls...

Automatically turns down the volume when you are trying to overhear a conversation in the next room.


You can't tell me you haven't manually done this before. Imagine your TV doing it FOR you.

Tells you to get to class if you become so engulfed in a show you forget you have other responsibilities.


The TV may be smart enough to remind you not to be late, but that doesn't mean you still have to be on time.

Tells you where the remote is when you lose it.


"You're sitting on it." Wow. Thanks, Smart TV! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Voice activated TV that answers all questions one might have while watching a movie or show.


"What else is that actor in?"

"When was this movie released?"

"Are Jim and Pam married IRL?"

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.

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.
