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*
