13 Reasons Why 'Sweet Magnolias' — And Serenity, SC — Should Be Your Next Netflix Vacation

If you have already binged season one of the Netflix original "Sweet Magnolias," then you probably can't stop thinking about what might happen in season two.

For those of you who haven't started season one yet, stop what you're doing immediately and get your life back on track.

Here are 13 reasons why everyone should make "Sweet Magnolias" their next Netflix binge-watch:

1. Maddie and Coach.

They are not a perfect couple. But she's cute. And he's hot. And he coaches her son.

2. Margarita Nights.

Maddie, Helen, and Dana Sue — the three main characters of the show — "pour it out" with Margarita Night in what seems like an every night occasion, and it is truly something to aspire to.

3. The small-town charm.

It will make you want to move to a small town and open up a cafe.

4. The food.

Dana Sue might be the most annoying TV character in quite some time, but you'll definitely want to make a reservation at her restaurant "Sullivan's" to grab some catfish and an old fashioned.

5. The drama.

There is a LOT of it.

6. Seeing strong businesswomen do their thing.

Find me three men who can open up a spa in a mansion that fast on a whim. I'll wait.

7. Actual teens playing teens.

If you watched "Outer Banks," you couldn't help but notice 27-year-olds playing 17-year-olds. In "Sweet Magnolias," kids actually play kids — and it's refreshing.

8. The diversity of the cast.

You love to see it.

9. Jamie Lynn Spears as "Noreen."

What a THROWBACK. And she's pregnant. And terrible at acting. It's awesome.

10. Chris 'Oz' from "American Pie" as "Bill Townsend."

And he plays a doctor who cheated on his wife, impregnated his nurse, and all with the worst fake accent I've ever heard.

11. It might be the only baseball you get to watch this summer.

How bout those New York Yankees Serenity Bulldogs???

12. Everyone on the show has problems.

And YOU get to watch them deal with them. It's weirdly therapeutic.

13. The finale and its ending will leave you speechless.

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.

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.

I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
