The Netflix Show Everyone's Talking About: 'You'

It's basically just Dan Humphrey with a knife.


If you haven't watched "You" on Netflix yet, you definitely should. Based in New York City the show circulates around Joe, a bookstore manager, who becomes obsessed with a young woman named Guinevere Beck. It revolves around his stalking ways into her life from stealing her phone to following her when she leaves the house. Beck has people in her life that Joe is jealous of and that he feels like are messing up her life. The show has been set for another season in the next year, which will feature a few new characters.

Another thing that I found interesting was that there are five facts that most people probably didn't know about the show. I always like looking up things like this because they're always pretty interesting and sometimes answer questions you didn't know you had.

Beware a few spoilers ahead!

Penn Badgley didn't want to play Joe at first because the show is framed as a love story, which he found conflicting.

The bookstore in the show is actually a real bookstore in New York called Logos Bookstore.

Candace wasn't always supposed to come back at the end.

Peach Salinger got her name because author Caroline Kepnes thought it was "annoying." 

Kepnes said in an interview, "I also thought peaches were perfect because they're ripe and delicious, and then they're spoiled, poison, they attract flies, they can make you sick," she added.

Kepnes came up with the character Joe while in a coffee shop.​

I'm so excited for the next season and to see how they continue with Joe's character without him getting caught. Hopefully, girls will stop tweeting Penn Badgley asking him to kidnap them in the meantime.

No Sex And Upstate New York

A modern-day reincarnation of Carrie Bradshaw's classic column


Around the age of 12, when I was deciding whether or not to be gay, Satan appeared on my left shoulder. “Ramsssey,” he said with that telltale lisp. “Come over to our side. We have crazy partiessss.” He made a strong case, bouncing up and down on my shoulder with six-pack abs and form-fitting Calvin Kleins. An angel popped up on the other shoulder and was going to warn me about something, but Satan interrupted- “Shut up, you crusty-ass bitch!’ The angel was pretty crusty. She disappeared, and from that moment forward I was gay.

Senior Year Is Here And I Am So Not Ready For It

I was you not that long ago. I was once an eager freshman, a searching sophomore, and a know-it-all junior. Now? Now I am a risk taker. Not the type that gets you in trouble with your parents, but the type that changes your future. Senior year is exciting. A lot of awesome things come along with being the top-dog of the school, but you, right now, are building the foundation for the next 4 years that you will spend in high school. I know you've heard it all. "Get involved", "You'll regret not going to prom", "You're going to miss this". As redundant as these seem, they're true. Although I am just at the beginning of my senior year, I am realizing how many lasts I am encountering.

Why Driving Drives Me Crazy

the highways are home


With Halloween quickly approaching, I have been talking to coworkers about what scares us. There are always the obvious things like clowns, spiders, heights, etc. But me? There are a number things I don't like: trusting strangers, being yelled at, being in life or death situations, parallel parking. All of these are included when you get behind the wheel of a car.
