Happy Valentines Day! I am currently single, so I don’t have any special person as my valentine, but that is okay. This is my last semester in college, and I am happy to be able to focus on school and preparing for my future career.
In the spirit of Valentines Day, I decided to write a post about some of the things that I am loving at the moment. I have different shows, food and more on this list! I hope you have a great holiday and maybe you learned about a cool new product to try or show to watch!
Switched at Birth
This show has been on and off the air for awhile, but it just came back a few weeks ago. I have made the effort to catch up on episodes at home since I don’t have cable in my dorm, but you can watch all of the previous episodes on Netflix.
The show is great at exploring diversity, and there are different characters, so everyone can relate to someone on the show. There are also quite a few deaf characters, so sign language is common. It’s a great motivator to actually watch the show instead of being on Twitter at the same time!
A Series of Unfortunate Events
These were some of my favorite books as a kid, and a new series was just released on Netflix last month! I binge-watch all of the episodes in a couple of days. Neil Patrick Harris plays Count Olaf, the series villain. Also, Patrick Warburton (Kronk from the Emperor’s New Groove) is the narrator.
The entire season is eight hour long episodes, so you don’t need a ton of time to watch it. If you love mysteries, light horror or reliving your childhood, this show is for you.
I’m not a huge fan of fried chicken, but I love Popeyes! They have awesome chicken tenders with amazing breading! I also love their mashed potatoes, and the biscuits are to die for!
I make sure to fill my Popeyes craving every time I go home, because my college town isn’t lucky enough to have one. But it’s definitely one of my top favorite restaurants.
KFC just can’t compete!
I really lucked out with my class schedule this semester. All of my classes happen in the afternoon, so I can ease into the day most of the time.
I do like to get out early and practice music when I can, that way it’s not hanging over me. Music is not something that stresses me out, but it still takes time, and I like to make a dent in the requirement when I can.
Last semester, I started working as an opinion writer for my school’s paper. I am able to go to weekly meetings then write my weekly opinion piece on my own time (before the deadline, of course!).
I’ve also met some people through the paper, and I love getting to express my thoughts and get paid! I know that not all colleges pay their student writers, but if you like to write, it’s worth looking into!
What are your current favorites? Have you tried anything on this list? Let me know in the comments or on Twitter (@HannahHaefele)!
Thanks for reading!
