10 Ways Bob's Burgers Cured My Depression

It literally relieves my anxiety and stress when I get to just sit back and watch my show as I get transported to Wonder Wharf with my fave TV family, the Belchers.

10 Ways Bob's Burgers Cured My Depression

Bob's Burgers may not be able to fix the chemicals in my brain, but it's fixed everything else in my life.

1. It just makes me happy.

SEROTONIN! WHOO! Bob's Burgers has the kind of humor that just makes your soul smile.

2. It's *totally* relatable.

Between each character and their unique personalities, it isn't hard to relate to any of them! Which one are you?

3. Its adult humor, but in a subtle way.

I know people from 12-45+ of age who watch Bob's Burgers and love it all the same. The jokes work on all kinds of levels, ranging from kiddo to adult.

4. There's a character obsessed with boys, specifically boys' butts.

Who doesn't love a good boy booty?

5. Wine is mentioned in almost every episode.

Who doesn't love a good wino? Wine has had a positive impact on my life, and I'm glad there's a show that demonstrates my appreciation for it.

6. They love and include *everyone*.

They're inclusive of all races, genders, sexes, and everything in between... and in the very best way, a respectful way.

7. They're totally a feminist forward family.

Repeat this manta at least three times a day in a mirror to unlock Tina Belcher Level Confidence.

8. They're accurate about life problems. #relatable

Who hasn't felt this way before??

9. They appreciate the value of family.

This show follows the ins and outs of the Belcher family, with all of the highs and lows in between. And trust me, there's a lot of twists and turns along the way.

10. They ask the *important* questions.

It's a valid question; what's your opinion on whether or not they get songs stuck in their heads? But seriously, who hasn't had those random questions run through their mind at least once a day?

Bob's Burgers is a show that I can just relax and enjoy. While there is an actual storyline in the show from beginning to end, you can jump into any episode and enjoy it, plus you can get some closure at the end of each episode with all of the day's ups and downs resolving in one way or the other.

It literally relieves my anxiety and stress when I get to just sit back and watch my show as I get transported to Wonder Wharf with my fave TV family, the Belchers.

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.
