Big Little Lies Is Your Next Binge-Watch

I have realized, in the very recent weeks, that not everyone in the world has watched Big Little Lies. I was honestly shocked by this information because honestly, it's one of the best shows that I've watched in a really long time. Also, it was a book written by Liane Moriarty, an amazing book, that everyone should read, and then they should go ahead and read the rest of her books because they are all AMAZING.

Okay, I digress. I decided to go ahead and do a little bit of research on Odyssey to see if, in fact, not as many people had seen this amazing show as I had. I did not see nearly enough articles on it, but god knows I saw articles on Grey's Anatomy. (no shade, I've been around for Meredith since the beginning.) Big Little Lies is a show that was critically acclaimed and widely watched, with a powerhouse of a cast, but for some reason, it didn't get the plug that it deserved from Odyssey.

Well, I'm writing again now, and I'm giving it the plug it deserves.

To start, the cast of the show included but was not limited to Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon, Shailene Woodley, Alexander Skarsgard, Laura Dern, and now MERYL GODDAMN STREEP. The show was recently picked up for a second season, and yeah, they got Meryl Streep, a woman who literally never does tv. Have I convinced you yet? Was that not enough? No? Okay. Not only did it have an all-star cast, but it also had amazing music throughout the entire show. For proof, please go to Spotify and search 'Big Little Lies.' Trust me.

Some of the songs included.

Leon Bridges - River (Video) www.youtube.com


Michael Kiwanuka - Cold Little Heart www.youtube.com

This is just scratching the iceberg of the amazing music that you can listen to while watching a show with amazing fashion, truly honest portrayals of female friendship, five drastically different women, and an interesting storyline. yes, the only way to watch it is to watch it on HBONow, but please remember that you have a student discount there.

Just watch the show. Or read the book. Either of those two work. Just listen to me and do it.

In case you missed it, the Jonas Brothers are back together and, let me tell you, they're giving us some major jams. For those of us who were there when it all began back in 2007 with their first album, It's About Time, this has been one of the most important events of the year. But nothing, and I mean nothing can rival the excitement every twenty-something felt as the Jonas Brothers announced their Happiness Begins tour. I, for one, put my name in for ticket presale, have been following every single social media site related to the tour/group, and, of course, listening to the Jonas Brothers on repeat. And if you did manage to snag tickets, then you know that this is how your brain has been ever since they announced the tour.

1. Finding out that they're going on tour

2. Hopefully entering your name into the lottery to get presale tickets

3. Finding out that you actually get to buy presale tickets

4. Impatiently waiting for your presale tickets by listening to their songs on repeat

5. And remembering how obsessed you used to be (definitely still are) with them

6. Trying to coordinate the squad to go to the concert with you

7. Waiting in the Ticketmaster waiting room...

8. ...And feeling super frantic/frustrated because there are about 2000 people in line in front of you

9. Actually getting into the site to buy the tickets

10. Frantically trying to find seats you can actually pay for because, let's be real, you're twenty-something and poor

11. Managing to actually get the seats you want

12. Joyfully letting your squad know that you've done it

13. Crying a little because all of the dreams you've had since 2007 are coming true

14. Listening to every single Jonas Brothers song on repeat (again)

If you, like me, have finally fulfilled one of your dreams since childhood, then congrats, my friend! We've made it! Honestly, of all the things I've done in my adult life, this might be the one that child me is the most proud of.

I Know I'm Late, But I'm Now Obsessed With David Dobrik

"If you liked this article, please give it thumbs up and subscribe!"

After coming home from the end of my first year of college, instead of unpacking like my parents would've loved for me to do, I turned to YouTube. I've always watched YouTube but I was never one of those teens that watched it so avidly that I would want to go to Playlist Live or VidCon.

Throughout the year, I received many recommendations to watch David Dobrik. Like most people I know, the recommendation went through one ear and out the other. Was he really worth the hype? Well, if you take a look back at the title of this article, you know the answer to that question.

One day, I decided to subscribe to David Dobrik's YouTube channel because I knew that if I saw a video created by him pop up with the rest of subscriptions, one of these days I would end up clicking on a video. That is exactly what happened. I ended up watching maybe two or three videos in total, but I didn't really become a fan. It's not like I didn't enjoy the videos I watched- because I did. I just didn't keep up with them. It wasn't until I came home from school and decided to go all in that I truly hopped on the David Dobrik-bandwagon.

Now, I truly understand what everyone was talking about. Not only is he hilarious, but his vlogs are super short (four minutes and 20 seconds to be exact). In a competition, I'd probably be named the "World's Worst Watcher" of TV shows and movies because I'm so impatient that I skip through the bad or boring parts that I don't want to watch. Contrary to this statement, I can safely say that I have only skipped through a video once only because someone was about to puke. He and his friends are always on the go, which is much more fun to watch than someone just sitting in front of the camera explaining what they are about to do instead of footage of them in action.

Most of the YouTubers I watch create lifestyle videos, like makeup tutorials, clothing hauls, vlogs of college students, etc. David Dobrik's videos are completely different from any of the others that I subscribe to. All of his videos are vlogs that show him doing the most ridiculous, yet entertaining things, whether it be buying his best friends expensive cars, paying them $100 so he can shoot them with a paintball gun, or going on spontaneous trips to Las Vegas. There's not a single moment through any of his videos that don't leave me with a smile on my face.

It's not just that his videos are short and entertaining. It's also that he seems like the sweetest and most down-to-earth human being. He cares so much about his friends so much that the focus isn't entirely on him but on them, which is something that you don't see very often.

I highly recommend that everyone watch at least one of his videos. It may be four minutes of your life that you will never get back but after watching it, you won't want them back.
