Netflix added some great movies and shows to the line up this past month. With the new year comes time to add more to the Netflix queue. In the past weeks, I've had a lot of time on my hands. Netflix was my go to time killer when I wasn't working or hanging out with my friends, but with my winter break coming to a sad end I decided to share my personal watch list to you.

1. "The End of the F***ing World"

An eight-episode British Television Comedy that showcases two troubled teens who decided to run away together. James, a 17-year-old psychopath, teams up with Alyssa the new mysterious girl in school. With plans to make her his first human kill, he agrees to be her boyfriend and run away to find her estranged father. Each episode running a half hour makes for an exciting 4-hour binge of this show.

2. "The First Time"

With off-screen couple Britt Robertson and Dylan O'Brien, this movie should be written down as a must see coming of age movie. Still being a freshman in college, this movie is still relevant to my life, showcasing the unpredictability of your first love. The two main characters stumble upon each other at a party and develop an intoxicating bond.

3. "Batman"

The 1989 classic take on the beloved character features Micheal Keaton as Batman and Jack Nicholson as the Joker. Everyone should add this Tim Burton classic now added to Netflix, Christian Bale has nothing on Keaton's performance of Batman. Not only can this cinematic gold be found on Netflix, but its equally amazing sequel with Danny Devito and Michelle Pfeiffer, "Batman Returns".

4. "What Happened to Monday"

This Netflix original although added in August, it took me a few months to uncover. Noomi Rapace, otherwise known as "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo," plays 7 identical twins in a near future where siblings are forbidden. Noomi gives the audience a spectacular performance with each character uniquely different and likable in their own ways. This movie is by far the biggest must-see on this list. With excellent writing and visual effects it's almost undetectable that Noomi is the only actor of the seven sisters.

5. "Heartthrob"

With Netflix's "Atypical" lead Keir Gilcrest and "Nashville" star Aubrey Peeples comes to an independent film that showcases a relationship between two uniquely different teens. This film documents love so strong it becomes Gilcrest's character, Henry, to reach a dangerous level of obsession. This is a film won't be everyone's favorite, but worth watching if you enjoy independent films with two fantastic actors.

6. "Stardust"

Stardust is simply one of my favorite films, but it's not well known. Based on a very dark novel comes a stellar cast of actors thrusting the audience into an epic fantasy world where fallen stars are used to win girls hearts and bring youth to witches. A film of comedy, romance, and intense action provides joy to any audience member.

7. "Atypical"

Although I watched this series when it came out in August it's a show that needs to be watched. As I've previously, mentioned Keir Gilcrest stars as Sam Gardner, an autistic teen who thinks it's time to find a girlfriend. This show is absolutely worth watching, showcasing the struggles the whole family experiences as they try to find normalcy with two teen children trying to figure out the ways of love. Being a big sister to a brother with autism, this was also a great show to watch to develop a better understanding of what autism is.

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.

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.
