There's this weird phenomenon that college girls watch a lot of Netflix. It's brand new and something that I have just discovered, and nobody has talked about it before ever. I promise. Because these college girls watch so much Netflix they run out of things to watch and end up watching the same thing all of the time. I get it, man. We've all been there. I was there at the start of this semester and then suddenly found myself in the same place where I usually find myself: rewatching "The West Wing". I just couldn't do it again, so I decided to venture somewhere beyond Netflix, and to try some new shows. Due to all of the above reasons, I have five new suggestions for you. And they're all good

Suits

I have to be honest, my dad suggested the show to me, and he was right, I enjoy it. IF you like legal dramas, and good fashion, this is the one for you. Use your student discount for Amazon Prime and watch the first seven seasons right now. Trust me. Also, Donna Paulsen.

Friends From College

If you liked Cobie Smulders in 'How I Met Your Mother',watch this. There aren't many episodes, and they aren't very long, but it's a good and easy show to watch. Also, it' son Netflix, and therefore, easier to find. It's all about adult life, and how it isn't perfect, but somehow it's still funny.

Fresh Off The Boat

I've got to be honest, I only watched this show because of Constance Wu and the fact that 'Crazy Rich Asians' was an amazing movie. I found it on Hulu, and there are a solid five seasons, and it's actually pretty funny, so give it a try, if only because of 'Crazy Rich Asians'.

This Is Us

I've said it once, and I'm going to say it again: 'This Is Us' is somehow still underappreciated. It's literally one of the most emotional shows on TV, is on Hulu, and has Milo Ventimiglia. LIke, honestly, what more do I have to say. Just watch it. Please.

Sex and The City

I also feel like Carrie Bradshaw isn't getting the love that she deserves, and it's probably because she's only HBO Now and not Netflix. Her movie is on Netflix, but we also get a student discount for HBO Now so it's about time that someone uses it and learns all about the icon herself.

I hope that you can enjoy at least one of these shows, everyone, but if not, I'm sure I'll have some new suggestions in a few weeks.No matter what, enjoy those amazing student discounts and watch some new shows on something besides 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.

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.

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.
