Veronica Mars might have been one of the most badass high schoolers ever to grace our TV screens, but her life was anything but straightforward. The entire premise of the first season was her trying to figure out who had murdered her best friend and, frankly, that would be an exceptional amount of trauma for one person to deal with as is. But, her troubles certainly didn’t end there. In fact, by comparison, it made your day to day existence seem like an episode of The Brady Bunch. Here are twelve times when Veronica Mars made your life seem totally easy. Check them out, but beware of spoilers ahead if you haven’t already watched the show!

When she discovered her mom and Jake Kane were meeting in secret.
And then when Abel Koontz told her she might be Jake Kane’s daughter, which also would have meant that she used to date her half-brother.
