6 Ways To Know You're A Netflix Addict

Because who doesn't love binge-watching?

6 Ways To Know You're A Netflix Addict

Let's face it: Netflix has become a prominent force in video streaming. After all, what more could you ask for? For less than $10 a month (depending on where you live) you have access to a treasure trove of TV series and movies, including original content. For some people, Netflix is a luxury that's convenient for movie nights, but for others, it is basically our entire world. So, how do you know if you're addicted to Netflix? Here are a few tell-tale signs:

1. You can't keep track of all the series you've watched

The list is ridiculously long. Shamefully long. You start to wonder how many hours have fallen victim to Netflix. You begin lamenting the days wasted watching a movie or a TV show when you could've been doing something productive, like homework, or cleaning your room. But don't dwell on it for too long. .

2. You tune in every Wednesday for episode updates

Like clockwork, you open Netflix every Wednesday to watch the latest episodes of your favorite shows. Sure, you could watch those episodes on television but that red and black logo just feels like home.

3. You finish a new series in a few days

As soon as Netflix releases a new series, you start watching. For days you have prepared: all the snacks are made, your laptop is fully charged, and you've told everyone to not disturb your viewing. And so the binge-watching begins, until you've spent hours consuming that sweet, sweet media content.

4. You fly through your queue at light speed

Most people have Netflix queues that collect dust with shows begging to be watched, but not yours. No, your Netflix queue is always depleted because of your binge-watching sessions. Without careful curation, your queue could be finished at any moment, and you would have to spend hours finding the perfect show to watch next. But you aren't a slacker. You keep your queue well-stocked and ready to go.

5. You recommend new shows to your friends constantly

Every time you watch a new Netflix series, you immediately notify your friends that you know would love it. You routinely send texts to your best pals at 3AM after a hardcore Netflix sesh, raving about the obscure indie film you found.

6. You have to wait for your friends to catch up

Not only do you love recommending shows and movies to your friends, but you also love discussing those shows and movies. Unfortunately, your pals aren't quite as invested in Netflix a you are. However, like any sane person on this planet, you strictly adhere to the "no spoilers" rule, so you must wait until they finally catch up with you to discuss your fan theories.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
