How "Sweet Magnolias" Is Giving Me "Gilmore Girls" Vibes

The new Netflix original show "Sweet Magnolias" is giving me major "Gilmore Girls" vibes. I've seen all of "Gilmore Girls" probably at least 12 times (I usually put it on in the background while I'm working) but it's by far one of my top 3 favorites for TV shows until "Sweet Magnolias" came.

1. The town

Both shows are set in small towns in a small community where everyone knows each other. The little town with the gazebo in the center of town is so cute.

2. The characters

All the characters in both shows are just so lovable and even from the first 10 minutes of the first episode, you can't help by being sucked in to the plot.

I would say that Maddie (S.M.) is most similar to Lorelai (G.G.) and that Dana Sue (S.M.) is most similar to Sookie (G.G.) just for a couple of character similarities.

3. The scripts

"Gilmore Girls" was written by Amy Sherman-Palladino and everything is so quick paced that if you've ever noticed, the actors ad actresses don't take gaps or breaths in between sentences. It's just go, go, go, so that they can have as much dialogue and story as possible in 45 minutes.

"Sweet Magnolias" was written by Sheryl J. Anderson but the show was actually based on the books by Sherryl Woods. "Gilmore Girls" didn't have any book series the way Sweet Magnolia does.

4. The relationship dynamics

There are so many interesting relationships in both shows and you can tell where the sparks are. Both shows have valuable lessons on, love, friendships, heartbreaks, humor and so much more. There's the mother-daughter relationship, the best friend relationship, the romantic relationships, just literally everything.

Everything that I have ever loved about "Gilmore Girls" has showed up in "Sweet Magnolias" and I cannot wait for season two to be on Netflix (probably in 2021). But if you have heard of these two shows but never have seen them before, you should go watch them because I can almost guarantee that you will fall in love with them the same way I have.

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.
