11 Shows To Binge-Watch This Summer

With school coming to a close, naturally we will have a bit more free time then we are acustom to during the school year. For most of us, that means at least a little bit of binge-watching our favorite shows.

Here are 11 shows I recommend we watch or re-watch this summer:

1. The Sopranos

Available on Amazon Prime Video, the six seasons and 86 episodes of the HBO drama, The Sopranos, chronicles the life of a New Jersey based mobster, Tony Soprano. The show revolves around his difficulties learning to balance his involvement in criminal organizations and his family life.

2. Friends

This is a classic show that we have all seen at least one episode from. In its 10 seasons and 236 episodes, Friends follows six best friends living in Manhattan. The show follows their comedic and romantic trials and triumphs. I highly recommend looking for Friends wherever you can find it.

3. Gossip Girl

Gossip Girl is a teen drama series that will never get old for me. I am not ashamed to admit that I have watched the series in its entirety three times. The show features 6 seasons and 121 episodes that can be found on Netflix. Gossip Girl follows Upper East Siders of New York as they navigate prep school, college, love, and drama. Chuck and Blair's romance is one for the ages.

4. House of Cards

House of Cards is a Netflix original series. The show is continuing and currently has 4 seasons with 52 episodes. It is an American political drama series following more than just politics. The fifth season will not be released until 2017. You have plenty of time to binge-watch the show and catch-up until then.

5. Orange is the New Black

Orange is the New Black (OITNB) is also a Netflix original series. The show currently has 3 seasons on Netflix but will be releasing its fourth season in June 2016. The show is a comedy and follows the unique and interesting lives of female prisoners.

6. I Love Lucy

Amazon Prime features this classic sitcom pioneering show. The show follows Lucy as she tries to find success in show business. Along the way, we can see what an knack Lucy has for getting her family and friends into some interesting situations.

7. Buffy the Vampire Slayer

This television series can be rented on Amazon Prime for a relatively low price. Buffy is a high school student who must juggle everything normal high school students do, in addition to slaying vampires in her free time.

8. American Horror Story

Watch American Horror Story with Amazon Prime. The best part of this show is that each season functions as its own mini series so if you only have two or three days to binge-watch a show, this may be your best bet!

9. Nova

If you're more into documentaries, you can find this series on Amazon Prime. Nova is a long-running and widely respected series that delves into different subjects within the scope of the sciences.

10. Arthur

If you're looking to jump back into your childhood, consider binge-watching Arthur. The series can be found on Amazon. Arthur promotes great life lessons and is not just a show for kids. It is the second-longest running series ever created so it is safe to say that you will be busy this summer.

11. Grey's Anatomy

This series with a cult-like following can be watched on Netflix. Grey's is an American medical drama that follows the lives of interns and residents as they become seasoned doctors. At the same time, the crew must maintain personal relationships.

These were just a few of my suggestions! Happy binge-watching!

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

Mental health is not an easy endeavor. It's not a fad. It's not a bandwagon that you can hop on and off of whenever you want to. Your yearly dose of sadness is not depression. I'm not here to define what depression — or anxiety, or any other type of mental health issue looks like — but I will tell you what it's not.

I sometimes look back at the days when I had anorexia and think to myself what would have happened if I had taken another bite? Nowadays, I spend days dreading over my figure and wondering if the old sundresses and outfits even fit. I tell myself that they do, but I feel like reality holds a different truth.

I oftentimes (excessively) use the excuse of my job as a writer to justify my excessive spending habits.

I needed the new Huda Beauty palette before anyone else in the name of journalistic integrity. It was my job to test out the new Francis Kurkdjian fragrance to make sure I could tell people whether or not it was truly worth the splurge (it was).

I remember the days where closet drinking before going to a party or bar was part of the night's itinerary. It was a requirement to have a good buzz flowing before calling the Uber to take you to that bar where you see everyone from your high school at. The pregames were the best part of the night, but it wasn't ever because of the alcohol, it was because of the atmosphere and those who were in it. The number of times I've heard "Wait, why aren't you drinking tonight? C'mon, get drunk with us" is endless, but think about it. Where were you when you were asked that? You were at the goddamn pregame and being there doesn't mean you need to be ripping shots. Being social doesn't require alcohol.

I asked 20 people how they cut back on alcohol while still being social.

Listen, you can do whatever you want with your free time. It's yours to spend and you have free range. However, I hope you recognize that there are a ton of proactive things you can do right now instead of stalking your man's ex – yes, I know you do it becuase we are all guilty of it.

Take this time to research your privilege. There are always new things to learn and ways to deepen your understanding of yourself, this world, and your surroundings. We live in a multi-dimensional, ever-changing society that needs your help and your time. By that, I mean there are so many layers to each and every one of us, and with our physical, mental, spiritual, or emotional selves, we can create real, positive change.
