Watch & Listen

I do not know about you all but I am getting worn out with school. That means that I am constantly looking for outlets to enjoy myself. Today, I have two suggestions for you.

  1. Watch
  2. Listen

First, I highly suggest checking out sights like Netflix and Hulu. They are wonderful sources for on demand access of our favorite shows in their complete series. While this can be addicting, my favorite part is that you do not miss any part of what is going on like keeping track of airdates and recording on VHS in the past.

Right now, I am hooked on the 2003-2007 drama, The O.C., created by Josh Schwartz. The O.C. is a about a teen, Ryan Atwood and his journey in finding a family into the wealthy society of Newport Beach after a troubled background. Ryan is adopted by the huge Newport Socialites, the Cohens, who connect him to a new love interest Marissa Cooper. While the themes may seem typical on paper, the show is nothing short of it’s drama category. Every topic from secrets, love, sex, drugs, money, and friendship are covered throughout the four seasons. I cannot get enough of the high school power team of Ryan, Marissa, Summer, and Seth. I recommend checking out this series if you want to reminisce to the times of the early 2000s when the Cali lifestyle was all the rage. It is a huge motivation for me to get through my homework and reward myself with an episode.

Additionally, I suggest checking out listening to music sites like Pandora and Spotify. I was shocked to hear that my dad had never heard of these sites before today. Pandora is a free radio music stream founded in 2000 with songs that play in any genre you type in the search engine. This free service is a great way to keep a fun, soothing, or upbeat atmosphere in between study sessions. My favorite station happens to be 90s right now. It is a great addition to the vibe I am feeling with The O.C. A similar site that I think is even better is Spotify. This newer website can also be accessed from a variety of devices like Pandora since it is an app. You can search a majority of music for free and add it to playlists to play under WiFi. I absolutely adore that I can get music for free without a struggle. Although you cannot add it to an iPod, you can upgrade both sites to premium and get full access features. If you are looking for something to listen to, try The Sign by Ace of Base that I featured below. It brings me straight to summertime.

Happy Easter all!
