My Top 5 Feel-Good TV Shows

A list of my top 5 feel-good tv shows.

My Top 5 Feel-Good TV Shows
Entertainment Weekly

This week I decided to talk about my top 5 feel-good TV shows. These are the type of shows that you’d want to watch after a long day. They’re mostly comedies and sitcoms. The shows are not in any particular order. (Except for Parks and Recreation because that will always be my favorite show of all time.) The following does include some spoilers.

1. "Parks and Recreation"

Watching Parks and Recreation is like a cup of hot cocoa on a cold day. With a group of friends like the parks and rec gang, you wish you could be a part of them. It’s such a comforting show to watch after a long day or to have a good laugh. All the characters’ personalities are unique and funny in their own ways. Who wouldn’t want to indulge in a “Treat Yo Self” day? Or have a best friend like Leslie Knope? Overall, this show is hilarious and highlights the importance of friends, waffles, and work. But work is always third.

Favorite Character: April Ludgate (Aubrey Plaza)

April is always up to some kind of scheme. She loves her friends but never shows her emotions towards them. I love her character development because she went from being an unmotivated intern to a self-efficient person.

Favorite Episode: The Comeback Kid

2. "The Office"

You can’t like Parks and Recreation without liking The Office. Both of these shows are similar because they show a group of friends in a work setting. The Office is different because it’s about a paper company in Scranton, Pennsylvania. Michael Scott (Steve Carell) is the boss of the office and is always pulling some sort of antic. It seems like they never get any work done because the employees are always up to something.

Favorite Character: Jim Halpert (John Krasinski)

What I love the most about Jim is how he's always pulling pranks on his co-worker Dwight. He doesn't take his job too seriously and always tries to liven things up. Plus, his romance with Pam is amazing.

Favorite episode: The Fire

3. "Brooklyn Nine-Nine"

This is another comedy show but in a police precinct setting. The cast is composed of PO, female, and LGBTQ+ characters portrayed in a positive and nonstereotypical way. The show follows Detective Jake Peralta (Andy Samberg) and his colleagues as they police the NYPD’s 99th precinct.

Favorite Character: Rosa Diaz (Stephanie Beatriz)

Rosa is a badass character that has command of herself. She is seen as scary, smart and secretive by her colleagues. She takes pride in the fact that no one knows much about her.

Favorite Episode: Beach House

4. "One Day At A Time"

This comedy follows three generations of the same Cuban-American family living in the same house. The characters are funny, relatable, and loving. The show also talks about different issues like immigration and identity. I love how the show is led by poc and strong female characters. I’ve recommended this show to many people.

Favorite Character: Elena Alvarez (Isabella Gomez)

Elena is the activist member of the family who always speaks her mind about different issues. We also get to see her journey as she figures out her identity.

Favorite Episode: Quinces

5. "My Mad Fat Diary"

My list would not be complete without this show. This show has made me laugh, cry, etc. My Mad Fat Diary follows the life of a 16 year-old girl who has been released out of a psychiatric hospital. Set in 1996 in Lincolnshire, it shows her journey to healing with her friends and family. The show doesn’t shy away from talking about body image, mental health, and sexuality. This show has helped a lot of people realize that they’re not alone in these struggles. The show is based on the book “My Mad Fat Diary”, written by Rae Earl.

Favorite Character: Rachel ‘Rae’ Earl (Sharon Rooney)

Rae Earl is the protagonist of this series. We get to see her character develop throughout the seasons. Audiences can relate to her struggles that she faces. She’s a raw character that teenage girls can definitely relate to.

Favorite Episode: All of them. I can’t pick one because they’re all packed with so much drama, laughs, and surprises.

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.
