NBC Universal

So it's every college kid's worst time of the year: final exams. I personally always wait until last minute to do everything, so here are my favorite shows I've watched and deem worthy of "binge-watching."

The Office

The show that usually comes to mind when thinking about binge-worthy shows. One of the first shows I ever binged watched. With Jim and Dwight's crazy shenanigans and Michael's hilarious outbursts, this show is sure to please. Streaming on Netflix.

The Handmaid's Tale

The latest of my binging. This is set in the future where not many women can get pregnant, but the ones who can are forced into becoming breeders they call "handmaids". Very addicting and can finish in one day! Streaming on Hulu.

Bob's Burgers

One of my favorites. The crazy characters and pun-filled burger names make me laugh every time. Gene is actually the star of this show. Streaming on Hulu CAUSE NETFLIX TOOK IT OFF.

Parks and Recreation

My favorite live action tv show. This show is so addictive with its relatable characters that can resonate with any and everyone. Mine is personally Ron Swanson. Follows the lives of people working in the Parks and Rec department in a small Indiana town. Streaming on Netflix and Hulu.


The one my dad forced me to watch over Christmas break freshman year. This show was so so so good and a perfect binge show since there are seven seasons. It's a dude who works for the Miami Police Department but kills serial killers on the side. Full of twists and turns in a good way. Streaming on Netflix and Hulu.

Rick and Morty

Crazy and full of new references you'll start using after watching. Follows the adventures of a twelve-year-old boy (Morty) and his scientist grandpa (Rick). Get schwifty cause it's streaming on Hulu.


Another on my dad made me watch. Not the most family friendly haha. Follows the lives of a low-class family living in Chicago with plenty of crazy turns every episode. Streaming on Netflix and Hulu.


The perfect show for some background noise for studying. Or binge since there are a whopping ten beloved seasons of this 90's classic. Chronicles the lives of six friends living in New York trying to figure out their own lives in adulthood. Streaming on Netflix and Hulu.

Stranger Things

Remember in the fall of 2016 when Stranger Things was all anyone could talk about? Well if you didn't succumb to peer pressure, you should now. The story is based in a small town in Indiana in the 1980's. A lab has terrible mishaps and causes the whole town to suffer. Streaming on Netflix.

American Crime Story: The People vs. OJ Simpson

I LOVE EVERYTHING THIS SHOW COMES OUT WITH. Although there are only 2 seasons, like AHS each season takes a look at a new crime in American history. Right now they are doing The Assassination of Gianni Versace which is also very good. The People vs. OJ gives an unbiased look at what happened the day of the killings and the year-long trial. Streaming on Netflix.

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.
