Start writing a post

Netflix has recently been adding some juicy -- and addicting-- movies and TV shows. It can be hard to decide which show to add to your watch-next list. Well, look no further than one of the newest additions: Outer Banks. This show, set in the Outer Banks islands of North Carolina in the summertime, follows a group of friends as they embark on an adventure that could change their lives forever. It will have you falling in love with the characters, the water, the journey, and the surprises in no time. Grab a blanket and some popcorn, this show will for sure keep you watching!

1. It Has A Little Bit Of Everything 

Outer Banks isn't like most shows -- it has a little something for all of its viewers. It has the drama, the humor, the mystery, and the romance, all wrapped up in one. It's safe to say this show will take you on a rollercoaster ride of emotions, catching you off guard when you least expect it. That's what makes it so addicting!

2. The Actors 

Another aspect that makes Outer Banks such a popular show is the cast. The main characters are portrayed as real people with real problems that make them easy to relate to (okay, well maybe not the treasure hunt part). You also get to see some talented surfers and good-looking actors, which is always a plus. Netflix sure knows how to pick them!

3. It Will Make You Believe In True Love Again

The romance part of the storyline may be one of the show's best features. It will remind you of a love like Romeo and Juliet. The budding romance between John B. and his girl (no spoilers here!) will leave your heart aching for that kind of love. John B. is the on-screen Netflix boyfriend every girls deserves.

4. It Will Keep You On The Edge Of Your Seat

Although there is a romantic aspect to the plot, Outer Banks is not just a sappy love story. It is also has mystery and adventure, too. The main characters follow a trail where they must risk their lives to learn the truth, meaning the audience doesn't always know what's coming next. This show will most definitely keep you on your toes.

5. It Will Give You Hope

A major theme running through the series is that of friendship. This group of friends is willing to risk everything for one another. Their bond grows even stronger as the show progresses. By trusting their instincts, each character shows that finding yourself and your path in the world is not an impossible feat.

6. It's Only 10 Episodes

There is only one season of Outer Banks, meaning it doesn't take that long to watch. Each episode is between 45 and 55 minutes long. Compared to to other shows, this one isn't long at all. You can finish this show in no time! And hopefully, one day soon, Netflix will bless us all and add another season, because we need one!

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
