The Syllabus Week Solution

Binge watching is my favorite major.

The Syllabus Week Solution
Digitaltimes.com

As school starts up again and students start returning to school, we start to see all the posts about what to bring to school and what to leave at home. However, we never see posts talking about the first week of the semester where nothing really happens. Yup, we all know it and we all miss it once the semester really begins: Syllabus Week.

For the freshmen who don't know, Syllabus Week is the time where professors do almost nothing but go over the class syllabus and answer questions about the class, and nine times out of ten it's the week where people slack off the most. However, why slack off and spend the day out when you can sit in your dorm with a bowl of popcorn and binge-watch some Netflix faves? Here's a list of the best shows to binge on Netflix during this week:

1. Limitless (1 Season).

This is the story of a guy who takes a drug and is suddenly able to use 100% of his brain. He helps solve crime, and it's one of the best action shows I have ever seen. The cinematography is extremely well done! 10/10, currently waiting for season 2.

2. Gotham (1 Season).

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F27%2F6360786428907242261624788610_200_s.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=24&h=176a0464dec28c8f7ef08c8acecc56ac073e72f1f0712b3b8d301b88c466f15a&size=980x&c=1107351866 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F27%252F6360786428907242261624788610_200_s.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D24%26h%3D176a0464dec28c8f7ef08c8acecc56ac073e72f1f0712b3b8d301b88c466f15a%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1107351866%22%7D" expand=1]

Story of a tiny Batman as he lives after his parents tragic death. There's only one season on Netflix right now but it's very well scripted and insanely well done. It's basically Batman, but with a much younger cast!

3. Bates Motel (3 Seasons).

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F27%2F636078643301785991167508144_large.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=575&h=e2364d03e23e498051946bebfe011cd43b6df876220d9244bd73da732b89718d&size=980x&c=2784210528 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F27%252F636078643301785991167508144_large.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D575%26h%3De2364d03e23e498051946bebfe011cd43b6df876220d9244bd73da732b89718d%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2784210528%22%7D" expand=1]

Now I have never been the right girl for scary things, but for some reason Bates Motel made the end of my second semester better. It's a little creepy, but only enough to get under your skin. Would not watch if one has a weak stomach.

4. The Gates (1 Season).

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F27%2F636078645202436585-1351583922_the-gates.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=982&h=5081fb8313e1679acd0c466b45eac0293d266d0924a4348664557aa75ac19624&size=980x&c=1769881601 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F27%252F636078645202436585-1351583922_the-gates.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D982%26h%3D5081fb8313e1679acd0c466b45eac0293d266d0924a4348664557aa75ac19624%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1769881601%22%7D" expand=1]

Full of plot twists and hidden secrets that make you question everything about your reality. It's really excellent, and Colton Haynes is in it. For me, that's enough to watch any show. The show was cancelled after the first season, so unfortunately that's the only season we'll ever get. Cue crying emojis.

5. Good Witch (1 Season).

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F27%2F636078647717769239-104272551_tumblr_mupclg5oHO1s0teago1_400.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=20&h=aeecbf2170a617c6bb2d86d099354b7ef74f730420dc6cd4945b2254c8e39af8&size=980x&c=2028137237 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F27%252F636078647717769239-104272551_tumblr_mupclg5oHO1s0teago1_400.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D20%26h%3Daeecbf2170a617c6bb2d86d099354b7ef74f730420dc6cd4945b2254c8e39af8%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2028137237%22%7D" expand=1]

A wholesome, pure Hallmark television show about a good witch. It's so innocent it'll make you question everything else you're watching.

6. Law and Order: Special Victims Unit (5 Seasons).

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F27%2F636078648802449060-1385964337_giphy%2520%281%29.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=675&h=4fdbdf9a5cf634c9f88a92fe11e19455f45d1a468fa34c2532d5ff077061f3bd&size=980x&c=921142077 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F27%252F636078648802449060-1385964337_giphy%252520%25281%2529.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D675%26h%3D4fdbdf9a5cf634c9f88a92fe11e19455f45d1a468fa34c2532d5ff077061f3bd%26size%3D980x%26c%3D921142077%22%7D" expand=1]

Now, I honestly doubt you'll be able to watch all five seasons of SVU in one week, but if you want to take on the endeavor then go for it. It's an excellent crime show about sex crimes, and again, I would not watch this if you have a weak stomach.

Happy binge-ing!

What If The U.N. Actually United The Nations?

This is me taking a break from being cynical and imagining how the world could be one day.

By now, people are probably sick of hearing me talk about myself, so I’m changing it up this week. In keeping with the subject of my J-Term class, I’m asking myself a political what-if question. What if we could create a sovereign global government firmly grounded in justice that could actually adjudicate Earth’s many disparate nation-states into one unified world government?

    The Basics Of The United Nations

    As the General Assembly convenes, here is the United Nations 101

    2806
    WikiMedia

    For an organization that literally unites the nations, it amazes me how little is taught about the United Nations in schools, or at least where I went to school. It wasn't until I went to college and got a higher education that I learned the basics of the United Nations. I believe that every American should know at least the basics of what the United Nations does, especially since our country is one of the 5 permanent members. So here are the main "organs" of the United Nations.
