5 Reasons You Need To Binge-Watch The Circle on Netflix

When I first saw the trailer for the The Circle on Netflix, I thought it was another generic reality show filled with people whose only care is how many followers they have on social media. Oh man was I wrong.

The Circle is about a group of people who can't hear or see each other, but they can interact through 'the circle'. The goal is to become the most popular and win 100,000 dollars. But there's a lot more reasons to watch this show then just seeing who wins.

1. The Players Begin to Feel Like a Second Family!

Although each player begins the game thinking that anyone and everyone is there competition, they each grow to love and care for each other. The touching moments and caring personalities outshine in each contestant's personality. They all become so close to each other, and you can't help but fall in love with all of them.

2.The Show Acts as A Commentary On How Social Media isn't Reality

So since each of the contestants can't see or hear each other, not everyone is who they seem. Almost all the contestants acknowledge that they put themselves in a persona/character to gain popularity. There's also a short segment about the difference between people reacting to a fat girl online versus a thin girl.

3. Shooby

Shooby aka Shubham was actually not one of my favorites at the beginning. He came in with the mentality that social media is the devil, even likening it to social medusa. His strategy was to be as genuine as possible, and he slowly grew on me and all the other contestants. I guess it shows that if you're real on social media, people will like you alot more.

4. The Unique Challenges

Each day all the players get a challenge. The challenges are hilarious, and showcase each contestant's talents. From cake decorating to Chris not knowing who Kevin Jonas is, these challenges will always have you laughing

5. Joey and Shooby's Bromance

When you meet Joey, you would never guess that he would be friends with Shooby. Joey comes across as frat boy type, while Shooby seems much more nerdy. But their budding friendship and loyalty is something that makes you realize, opposites really do attract.

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.

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.
