And why you should too.

Why I Love "Friends"

Maybe I'm not qualified to be talking about TV shows, because I usually don't have the time or energy to actually put effort into following a show. When all my friends talk about Breaking Bad, Orange Is the New Black, and The Office, I basically have no idea what they are talking about. One of the only shows I have ever cared to follow is one that existed before I did, and that is Friends. Below are the following reasons why Friends is the only show that tempts me to waste all my time binge-watching in my bed, and why I relate to it more than anything else on Netflix.

Chandler is basically the fictional embodiment of how all men feel about love once they hit twenty-five, as well as how all women feel at pretty much all ages.

My diet as a broke college student who loses her wallet all the time is basically exactly the same as Joey's, no matter what.

Rachel Green never fails to make me feel like I'm slightly less alone since a lot of the time, she is either equally as alone, or messing up dates.

Despite her quirkiness and eccentricity, Phoebe always knows what matters most at the end of the day. You know, aside from cleansing people's auras.

Monica freaking out at work is pretty much exactly the same thing as me freaking out everywhere I go in my life.

Ross trying to get out of a speeding ticket is the same as me trying to get out of any trouble whatsoever. And failing. Failing so much.

Monica's simplicity and frankness with Chandler is how I aspire to talk to boys one day. Emphasis is on the last two words of that sentence, since I definitely don't have that kind of courage yet.

Also, Ross and Joey's reaction is the same one my conscience gets when I try to have serious conversations with guys.

Chandler's mindset supports everything I believed to be true in high school when my parents asked me what I was doing out so late.

Last but not least, Monica's welcoming Rachel to actual adult reality makes me feel both warm and fuzzy inside, and beyond depressed that I actually have to live in it.

Next time you're bored, lonely, and unlucky in life, start watching Friends! They make being bored, lonely, and unlucky look like a lot of fun.

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.
