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?"

Bruce Springsteen's Top 7 Lyrics

Everything Bruce says in his classic rock songs.

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.
