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.

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.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
