Procrastination seems to be the root of almost all our problems during college. Ideally, we want to have a well-balanced school, work, and social life when we first come back to school in August. We tell ourselves that "This year I will do my work on time and be the best student I can be," but as soon as school kicks into full gear, we find ourselves wanting to lay in bed and not be bothered by any task other than binge-watching the latest tv series or movie.

I'm here to tell you, as a fellow procrastinating college student, that it's OK to take some time for yourself. Lay in bed all Saturday and Sunday watching your favorite show or binge as many movies as you want. Sometimes we need the break from reality to get back into a focused mindset. Just remember to watch with your agenda in mind so you don't fall into the black hole of Netflix.

Here are 20 Netflix movies to add to your list to help you procrastinate a little bit longer.

Caution: Watch at your own risk

1. "To All The Boys I've Loved Before"

Two words: Noah Centineo, AKA Peter Kaminsky. This movie was very sweet and grabs it's viewers hearts as soon as it starts.

2. "The Spectacular Now"

A love story between two teenagers figuring out life and high school.

3. "When We First Met" 

Ever spend time with someone for a day and automatically want them to be in your life forever? This movie has that similar style with great humor and cast.

4. "Before We Go"

Chris Evans is everything in this movie. Go on a nightly journey with two strangers trying to find their way in life and maybe even love.

5. "Ibiza"

Take a trip with a girl and her best friends as they travel to Ibiza to find an incredible hot DJ.

6. "How It Ends" 

When a mysterious apocalyptic event turns everything upside down, a man desperately tries to make it home to his fiancée.

7. "Bad Boys"

If you're in the mood for a throwback to an early 2000s action movie, "Bad Boys" is the one to watch. Plus duo Michael Lawrence and Will Smith are incredible.

8. "Pirates of the Caribbean" 

If you're trying to spend a scary amount of time procrastinating, the "Pirates of the Caribbean" series is the perfect series to watch. Also, Orlando Bloom is really nice to look at throughout.

9. "Lord of the Rings" 

Another series that will take you a disgusting amount of time to get through but these movies are a classic to binge watch with friends on a last Sunday afternoon.

10. "Armageddon" 

Space movies are always for interesting to watch and this is definitely in the top five space movies to watch.

11. "How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days" 

I didn't see this movie until my sophomore year of college and the only thing I regret is not watching it sooner. Kate Hudson is gorgeous in this movie and Matthew McConaughey is irresistible, despite some of the "flaws" he has in the movie.

12. "I Love You, Man" 

Does anyone else have a huge crush on Paul Rudd like me? Because his dorky, weird humor gets me in every movie he's in.

13. "Adventureland" 

Experience what a summer job is like at a carnival through the life of James Brenna, played by Jesse Eisenberg.

14. "Happy Gilmore" 

One of Adam Sandlers best movies ever made. If you haven't seen this movie, please go watch it.

15. "High School Musical " 

If you're looking for a throwback to your childhood, High School Musical 1, 2 & 3 are the best movies to watch!

16. "Coco"

This is the sweetest movies I have seen all 2018. A movie about love and family that is so sentimental you'll cry

17. "The Princess Diaries"

Mia basically lives out every little girls dream by becoming a princess. I'm still waiting for my long lost relative to hit me up!

18. "Tarzan"

Another childhood throwback to make you feel nostalgic. You can watch the original or get your hands on a copy of the most recent version.

19. "Mulan"

A feminist dream movie: proving to all the boys that women are just as good (and even better) than men. Plus the soundtrack at perfection.

20. "The Little Rascals" 

A movie that takes you back to the good ole days.

The Birthplace of Basketball

The NBA Playoffs are here. It’s kind of funny that my history kind of started out in the same place that basketball’s did too.

Basketball was originally created by James Naismith, a Presbyterian minister who taught P.E. at YMCA in Springfield, Massachusetts. He invented the new game to keep the young men occupied inside during the winter. Borrowing ideas from rugby and a game he used to play as a boy, “duck on the rock”, he thought of nailing up boxes to throw a ball into. He couldn’t find boxes so he used peach baskets instead. The rest of the rules he made up in about an hour.

I Met You At The Wrong Time

At least, that's what I keep telling myself.

I met you when I was in middle school and I thought boys still had cooties. I wore flared jeans, Aeropostale shirts, and had the dorkiest braces ever. I cared about what other people thought of me, and I definitely cared a lot about what you thought, too. You were older, and your friends made fun of me when I talked to you. I pretended it didn’t bother me, but it did. I sat two rows in front of you in class, and constantly tried to think of reasons to talk to you. Your hair was a curly mess. It still is. You graduated from middle school a year before me, and I missed you. I don’t think you even knew my name.

Why I Don't Believe In Religion

I used to be comfortable with religion, but now I'm uncomfortable.

I’m not one of those people who doesn’t believe in God because“if there was a God, why would He let such horrible things happen?” Saying that because sometimes bad things happen, there must be no benevolent higher power, to me, makes about as much sense as saying that because sometimes it gets dark, there must be no light.
