What I'm Learning
Hi, I'm Chelsea! I’m on a mission to help you find joy and goodness in every day.
On this blog we talk about the big things (like chasing dreams) and the small things (like what books we're reading) because happiness comes in all sizes.
Summer is upon us, and it is the most wonderful time for every reason except one: Television.
Your shows are ending, your nights are free, and you will spend the next four months pondering the finales and googling when they come back on.
In the meantime, Netflix is about to be your new best friend. Not sure where to start? I’ve got you covered.
Friday Night Lights. Probably my favorite show ever. Don’t let the football theme scare you away–this is the greatest show to ever air (says this non-football fan). Though Connie Britton has BLOWN up lately, she will forever be Tammi Taylor to me. Please watch this immediately. TEXAS FOREVER.
Damages. This. Show. Is. Insane. So dark and twisty and villainous and just gooood. If you like law-themed shows and mysteries, this one is for you.
Hart of Dixie. A
little lot less dark and twisty, this adorable show is about a big city doctor who relocates the the world’s tiniest town…it is both heartwarming and hilarious, and you won’t be able to get enough.
Parenthood. Quite possibly the greatest show to ever air. I am still in major depression that it is over. If you’ve never watched it, I’m so jealous that you’re about to get to experience all of this for the first time. The Braverman family is all of us, and you will love
sobbing along with keeping up with their story.
The Blacklist. This new one is so good that Netflix paid 2 MILLION DOLLARS PER EPISODE to be able to stream this. You’re gonna want to trust them on this one. Raymond Reddington has been on the FBI’s most wanted list forever, until he turns himself in one day–and that is only the beginning of the story.
The Office. BEST SHOW EVER. This comedy was sneakily emotional. You will fall in love while getting a ton of one-liners that you will work into conversations for the rest of your life. You are welcome.
Parks and Recreation. Along the same lines as the office, this one is hilarious and adorable. Plus, Amy Pohler and Chris Pratt. Do I need to say anything else? No, no I do not.
Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. Because Erin from The Office got locked in a bunker and emerged 10 years later just as hilarious.
Pretty Little Liars. A mysterious “A” starts tormenting four best friends after the disappearance of their other best friend. Yes, this show was meant for high schoolers. SO WHAT?! It’s twisty and mysterious and will keep you awake at night wondering who the heck A is. And by season four you will be pretty sure YOU are A .
Scandal. Because if you haven’t lost yourself in the world of Olivia Pope yet, now is a great time to get started.
LOST. If you want a show that’s really going to suck you in all summer, this is it. A plane crashes on a mysterious island, and no one comes to rescue them. Then things start to get weird. WONDERFULLY WEIRD.]
