Why You Might Be Hannah From 'Girls' Too

Have you ever watched a show and realized you and the protagonist are the same person?

Why You Might Be Hannah From 'Girls' Too

Over fall break, a friend and I were recommended to watch "Girls." I had heard a bit about the series, but heard it was pretty raunchy, yet hilarious enough to power through those scenes. We binge watched three seasons in three days. With each episode, the protagonist, Hannah Horvath, became more and more relatable. She is Jessica Day with a twist and more tattoos. Every other scene I couldn't help but say, "Crap, she's me." And here is why.

People may question my maturity at times, but I know where I stand.

Lean Cuisine.

Someone asks, "Are you busy?" Hell yes, I am. I'm busy figuring out what exactly my life is going to look like next week; anything beyond that is entirely irrelevant at this moment in time.

It's still Christmas break and that is all I currently know.

If I had a FitBit my steps would maybe make it to 5,000 on a good day. I also took a nap yesterday...

...for five hours.

We thrive on the same compliments, even if we can't properly accept them.

"You are a good writer." And you've swooned me for life.

Sometimes the best way to express yourself is through song lyrics. Doesn't even matter what it sounds like, you do you.

"Back beat, the word is on the street that the fire in your heart is out. I'm sure you've heard it all before, but you never really had a doubt."

Physical activity is our niche.

Just kidding. I struggle to breath walking up a flight of stairs.

Pushing the limits with fashion choices is a part of who we are.

I won't insult your crop top, if you don't insult my pattern-on-pattern attire.

When people say things we don't agree with, it is dealt with the same way.

My facial expression hides nothing.

Going home means one thing: free food.

No, Mom, I have no idea what happened to all the groceries you just bought.

If we see a creature in need of a home, we will create space for it.

Puppies always have a special spot.

There is no shame in having a sweet tooth.

Yes, I would eat a cupcake for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

We recognize even Wednesdays have potential for greatness.

Let the weekend begin.

Space is necessary for self-expression.

And it's possible we get irritable without it.

And lastly, she's just trying to make her words matter to someone in some kind of way.

Just a writer trying to finish sentences.

Thank you Lena Dunham for bringing my spirit animal to light.

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

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.
