Number 8 is the most relatable.

Fifteen Stages Of Being A Netflix Addict

We're all guilty of it, and there's no denying. Netflix. The binge-watching trend that has recently surfaced should really be added to the list of Venial sins as a subcategory of being a glutton. But whatever.


But with binge-watching comes the dilemma of finishing an entire series in a record time of 72 hours and consequently being left with the struggle of finding and starting a new show. Somewhere between grieving the loss of our last three-day lifestyle and anticipation of what's next lies the following steps we are all familiar with.

1. Trying to get accustomed to life post-Most Recent Netflix Endeavor

I never thought this day would come. But it has and now I am totally lost. Ugh.

2. Finding a show that might be somewhat appealing but also feeling like nothing will ever replace the series you just finished

Gossip Girl seems cool but Grey's Anatomy was phenomenal. Nothing will ever measure up.

3. Starting the new show and looking at the screen like this because you still aren't impressed after only 20 minutes into season 1 of episode 1

4. But still giving the show a chance despite your doubts and feeling that same binge-itch creeping on

5. Admitting that yes, the show is actually somewhat enticing

6. Feeling that slow sense of addiction starting to trickle back in

7. Finding yourself putting your phone on Do Not Disturb for some alone time with your newfound favorite show

8. Realizing you haven't moved in six hours and that you're already done the first season of your new show

9. Only leaving your designated watching spot to run to the bathroom or get food

10. But when you do you sprint back so that you can watch your show

11. Realizing you're half way through this series and starting to feel that familiar sense of dread because you know it's halfway over

12. Slowin' ya roll because you're ¾ of the way done and you just went through this whole cycle and aren't ready for that type of emotional turmoil yet again

13. For some reason, starting to feel like the episodes in the last season are shorter than the others and there are less of them

14. Accidentally watching the last episode of the show and having to deal with the shock that comes with the abrupt ending

15. *Repeat cycle*

If you have been following me for a long time, then you know I write about two main things: relateable articles and communication media based articles. Now, it is time for me to combine the two.

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
