7 Reasons to Watch "This Is Us"

Sometimes it's nice to watch someone else dealing with their problems rather than dealing with your own.

7 Reasons to Watch "This Is Us"

Unless you've been living under a rock for the past few years, you've probably heard of the show on NBC titled "This Is Us". The show follows the lives of the Pearsons, a family of five including a set of triplets. I could rave about this show for hours, due to its magnificent cast, its charm, its many moving themes, and so much more, but I've come up with seven central reasons to tune in to NBC at 9 pm Eastern each and every Tuesday.

1. It's jam-packed with romance. 


Romance of all kinds - the kind of romance between couples who'd been married for twenty years, as well as newly budding romance. "This Is Us" truly has it all.

2. It's about real-life scenarios.


We all go through real life problems, and so do the character on "This Is Us". Their problems may be a tad more dramatic, though.

3. It's funny.


And I'm talking about good, playful family-style funny, not raunchy and inappropriate humor. "Cute" funny.

4. It's family-centered.


Finding a television show with legitimate family values is nearly impossible in this day and age, but "This Is Us" does it flawlessly and entertainingly.

5. It's emotional.


There are scenes in "This Is Us" that have completely and totally ripped my heart out, in a good way. The producers sure have a way of pulling on everyone's heartstrings, in a thousand different ways.

6. It's captivating.


One of the premises of the show is the changing of perspectives between the characters in the past, their current selves, and the characters in the future. Trust me - it is not nearly as confusing as it sounds.

7. It exhibits the important things in life.


There have been so many instances in the show where I have been moved to tears simply by the dialogue and background music combination. This show is simply beautiful, and I like to say I have learned a thing or two about life from it.

All in all, I highly recommend "This Is Us" to all. Ladies - it's the perfect show to watch with your boyfriend/husband! They'll love it. ;)

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.

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.
