7 Shameless Thoughts We Have While Watching ‘Shameless’

We always forget about Liam, but I sincerely hope he turns out OK.

7 Shameless Thoughts We Have While Watching ‘Shameless’

You can’t help but love the Gallaghers.

Six children growing up with an alcoholic father on the south side of Chicago, they’re not quite your traditional family, but they’ve always got each other’s backs.

After watching the first five minutes of straight weirdness, sex, drugs and alcohol, it’s obvious you’re in for a treat. Despite the string of shit-luck the Gallaghers face, they always live life completely shameless and sometimes we wish we could be a little more like them.

Here are seven shameless thoughts we all have while watching "Shameless."

1. What even is Lip and where can I get one?

Despite everything we know about smoking cigarettes, if Lip offered us one, we’d probably be down.

He’s mastered the whole bad boy act to a T – running from cops, sneaking around with his professor, the pretty standard Jess Mariano qualities that make a bad boy attractive. But there’s something else there too. Sweet, sensitive and also smart, we can’t stand the self-sabotaging and pray that someone finally says, “Fuck it, this kid deserves a chance”.

2. OK, sorry but Debbie is annoying

We’ve tried really hard to give her the benefit of the doubt, but there’s just no good explanation for why Debbie is the WOAT.

It’s like watching your middle-school self in the absolute worst moment of your awkward phase over and over again. Cringe. From bad decisions to worse decisions her storyline just continues to go downhill.

3. When did Carl get hot?

It makes no sense, but let’s just embrace it. His one-liners and stupid antics had us laughing from season one and he can weirdly pull off the cornrows.

4. I can't get over that Sheila is the mom from 'Ice Princess'

Yes, Joan Cusack, ladies and gents — the one who wouldn’t let her daughter wear skimpy ice skating outfits and wouldn't let anyone in her house with their shoes on.

No matter how bizarre it gets, we all live for a good Sheila scene and secretly want her to make us breakfast.

5. I can't decide if I love or hate Frank

The man who can’t be killed. He just keeps coming back and every time we have just a little faith that maybe this time will be different.

Frank scenes can frankly be excruciating to watch and we’d likely all chip in for him to take a shower, or get a haircut or sometimes go die.

Though we can respect his dedication to getting his hands on alcohol, we’ll probably rip out his liver if he doesn’t destroy it first.

6. Fiona makes me rethink my entire life

While she doesn’t always have the best judgment, especially when it comes to guys (Steve or Jimmy?), she’s doing a lot more than I am right now sitting on my couch watching this show.

Fiona is the backbone of the Gallagher family and somehow always manages to hold things together even when it’s messy.

7. Pray for Liam

We always forget about Liam, but I sincerely hope he turns out OK.

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
