Learn from Beck's mistakes, Love.

10 Things Victoria Pedretti Can Learn From Beck As The Female Lead In Season 2 Of 'You'

The Netflix Original series "You" poses many questionable stances on how far someone goes for who they "love."

For those who are mega fans of the show know that Beck was the worst victim — and person imo — ever. No spoilers here, but when I saw that "You" was casting for season two's love interest and obsession for Joe, I literally had to make a rule book for his next victim.

New season, new setting, new obsession. Joe's new love interest Love Quinn, who lives in LA and is surprisingly not as materialistic as a certain someone *cough cough Guinevere Beck*. Apparently, she's down to earth, a super nice girl, and hopefully not as gullible as Joe's former love interests.

Here are 10 things Love Quinn needs to do differently than our beloved (lol jk) Beck.

Stay away from bookstores

Love, you gotta stay clear of any or all bookstores. I don't care if you need a new recipe book or something, don't trust them. Buy all of your stuff online, tbh. It's probably the best way to go.

Try not to cheat?

Just try? We know from Beck that being faithful was, uh, a chore for her, but maybe be a good woman and remain loyal? Especially if you're sucked into Joe's clutches already, you might wanna stay on his good side until you figure out he's a sociopathic stalker.

Also: Don't sleep with your therapist. That's a definite no no.

Look at your surroundings

I will give Beck this: NY is a crowded area, so looking around constantly would be a pain in the ass. HOWEVER: learn from her mistakes, and check around you to see any creepy guys in stupid disguises are lurking around you.

Here's a little tip: if you see the same guy wearing a hat and a jacket with its collars up to his face, then you may have successfully saved yourself from a stalker...and potential murder.

Ask more questions about Joe

You're bound to go on some cute, quaint dates with Mr. Creepy, so ask more about his life. Beck was a materialistic narcissist that literally only cared about herself. However, Love, you seem alright, so do the research yourself. If and when you realize stuff isn't adding up: leave him and never look back!

If y'all break up, stay broken up

This should go without saying, but this is a must with Joe. You don't know inside his mind (yet? maybe?), so this is a big one. If he or you break it off run for the hills! He is definitely not an ex to run back to...trust me.

Don't let him hangout with your friends

Girl, he's gonna get close with your friends in order to learn everything about you and it'll be easier for him to stalk you. He'll also kill them if he gets too jealous of them and territorial of you. Just saying.

Introduce him to your mom

Beck did have an excuse, as her mom wasn't in the picture. However, moms always know best! If you have a mom, INTRODUCE HIM TO HER. She'll sniff his sketchy ass out in a heartbeat — remember: mother always knows whats best.

Invest in curtains

Shut your blinds before you change your clothes...or before you have sex. That's just smart thinking, tbh.

Turn location services off on phone

He will literally stalk you on and off the phone, but maybe just hide your phone around him in general. If this isn't a sign to dump him anyways, I don't really know what is.


You seem like a nice girl, please just run and never hear of Joe Goldberg again.

Regardless if you use these, we know season two is gonna be epic.

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.
