Whether it’s a series or a string of movies, today’s youth is known for binge watching. Day and night, we settle down and figuratively become a zombie.
There’s always so much to watch and enjoy. Here are typical thoughts that everyone who is guilty of binge-watching has had.
1. I’ll just watch one episode today
Then you proceed to watch ten because one alone is NEVER enough.
2. I should really go to bed now
It’s four am and an intense binge session has just occurred. Only sleep and food will prepare our bodies for the next one.
3. One More Episode
When the show just got to its mid-season climax, what right do you have to go to bed/ outside now? Surely one episode more will reveal all the secrets.
4. Why do my eyes hurt?
In your pitch-black rooms with the only source of light being our screen, it’s no surprise that your poor eyes feel sore after a while.
5. I should go pee but I’m sure I can hold it until the next episode
And proceed to hold it in till you’re in the middle of an episode and your bladder is ready to burst.
6. Yes, I’m still watching
In response to Netflix when it questions our life choices. Yes, I’ve been watching this from 5 p.m. and its 5 a.m. now – no problem here, please.
7. I need to socialize more
You realize you’ve spent the entire weekend in bed with food stains all over you. The idea of having friends is far away.
8. Wish I had someone binge watching this with me
Especially when there’s a sudden insane plot twist and you are absolutely freaking out but there’s no one to freak out with.
9. How long can this buffer for?
When the internet connectivity is having issues and all you just want is to see what happens next. *crying*
10. Now what?
You have finished the last episode of the show and you have no idea how you’ll function in the real world anymore. What is life? School? Homework?
But in the end, you’ll find another show to throw your attention and life at. Get your binge-watching survival kit ready!
