Why Everyone Should Watch Crazy Ex-Girlfrined

The Most Relatable Show On TV

After recently binging season one of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend it quickly became one of my favorite shows. There are several reasons why I fell in love with this show. From the characters, the story, and the fact that it is a musical. But the thing I loved the most was that it was so unbelievably relatable.

Most shows out today are not as honest as Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. Most T.V shows have characters with perfect lives and maybe one or two that do not have every thing together. Not this one. Every character has some issues that they are trying to work through.

The main character, Rebecca Bunch, is a quirky lawyer who is trying to find happiness after following her old high school flame to California.

Rebecca is the most relatable character on the show because she is flawed. She is trying to get her life together, however the decisions she makes often put her in sticky situations that require a musical number.

Although, I do not create songs to work I my problems, I can relate to the way she struggles with money, boys, and overall adulting.

Rebecca is not the only relatable character. One of the other main females on the show is Rebecca's best friend, Paula Proctor.

While Paula means well, sometimes she tries to help Rebecca too much. Her obsession with Rebecca's drama is something most people can relate too. We all have had a friend that needs help and advice and sometimes your help makes things worse. But your heart was always in the right place.

Another leading lady on the show is, Valencia Perez. While Rebecca thinks that she is amazing and everything she is not, we later see that no matter how great things seem, everyone has some insecurities.

Which brings us to Valencia's boyfriend, and the reason Rebecca moved to California, Josh Chan.

Josh seems perfect to Rebecca and Valencia, however it is clear that, as nice as Josh is, he has his own issues. He is incredibly close to Rebecca and always willing to help her, which makes her think he shares her feelings. Throughout season one, Josh seems very unsure about what he wants regarding Rebecca and Valencia. And he also lies to his girlfriend multiple times.

And one of my personal favorites is Josh's lifelong best friend, Greg.

Greg is the snarkiest and most cynical character on the show. His bluntness occasionally gets him into trouble. However underneath his angry-at-the-world facade, we see how much he cares about the people around him. And side note, he has some amazing songs during season one.

There are many more supporting characters that are incredibly entertaining. This funny, realistic comedy provides something for everyone. From the romance, to the drama, to the songs, and to the amount of jokes. Anyone that has ever been in love, felt like nothing was going their way, or had to deal with the aftermath of a bad decision will be able to relate to Crazy Ex-Girlfriend.

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.

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.
