7 Shows That You Can Always Re-Watch On Netflix

My name is Sarah, and I’m addicted to Netflix.

We’ve all been there. The all too familiar Netflix binge that occurs without us even noticing. The 15 second pause in between each episode is simply not enough time to decide to stop watching so we continue. And continue. And continue. Then the sound of the show stops and you realize Netflix wants to know if it should continuing playing, forcing me to move my mouse to that window just to click “continue playing” and indulge myself in several more hours of streaming.

So I keep watching until suddenly its 2am and you have to wake up for an 8am class. But thats the problem, Netflix makes it too easy to procrastinate and loose track of time. Especially since it has so many of my favorite shows that I can re-watch again and again without getting tired of them, making them excellent background noise for my homework (I am not encouraging this, but it does happen).

Here are some of the best shows to watch again and again on Netflix:

1. Friends

I dare someone to find a better show. It may be “old” aka from the 90s, but it is a classic and the jokes are timeless. Anyone who has ever watched friends has their favorite character, favorite couple, and favorite plot line and we never get tired of them! I am about to finish watching it for the 5th time through on Netflix (I’ve done it more than that in total), and I have no regrets.

2. Parks and Recreation

Okay, so I have technically only watched this once all the way through but I plan to rematch the entire thing soon. Every character from Pawnee, Indiana is hysterical and there is never a dull moment. (Plus, my dog’s name is Lil’ Sebastian so I am very attached to this show). Seriously, just treat yo self and watch this show!

3. Gilmore Girls

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F09%2F20%2F636099433064280716-1460670521_giphy-3.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=219&h=93788c6c7537763d2817641f83ade7758f1695be18b0ed5407303510fd54839d&size=980x&c=2719744887 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F09%252F20%252F636099433064280716-1460670521_giphy-3.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D219%26h%3D93788c6c7537763d2817641f83ade7758f1695be18b0ed5407303510fd54839d%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2719744887%22%7D" expand=1]

The constant witty banter between Lorelei and Rory is unsurpassed by any other show. Every supporting character has tons of personality that it makes me want to jump through the computer and visit Stars Hollow. I can’t wait for the premiere of their seasonal episodes coming out November 25th.

4. How I Met Your Mother

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F09%2F20%2F636099434636173270-1056283513_giphy-4.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=903&h=768b0d11ac5232beba7fb606fa28590abe3494e65b0d716f2be838ead8aa0d05&size=980x&c=3235103535 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F09%252F20%252F636099434636173270-1056283513_giphy-4.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D903%26h%3D768b0d11ac5232beba7fb606fa28590abe3494e65b0d716f2be838ead8aa0d05%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3235103535%22%7D" expand=1]

This show is the 2000s version of Friends. I don't think its nearly as good but its funny enough to re-watch a few times, even if its only for the one-liners. Barney Stinson is too much of a spectacle to not enjoy this show. And sometimes its always good to play a round of "have you met Ted?"

5. Don't Trust the B**** in Apt 23

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F09%2F20%2F6360994368487629691954771495_giphy-6.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=916&h=1e0e1ed186711eab8325d05981a71df08b153219092b7bbd589bdcdf3709a1b7&size=980x&c=2018539294 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F09%252F20%252F6360994368487629691954771495_giphy-6.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D916%26h%3D1e0e1ed186711eab8325d05981a71df08b153219092b7bbd589bdcdf3709a1b7%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2018539294%22%7D" expand=1]

This show is so easy to binge-watch because its only two seasons! It's underrated and truly hilarious. Just try to treat your roommate better than Chloe treats June. The Dawson's Creek references are just a bonus.

6. Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F09%2F20%2F636099438300210442-221622141_giphy-8.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=565&h=e7e0b82a490b0ebc6f63d73ec04baebca993c22dc1a638077cafc00bde7c98e4&size=980x&c=3650775017 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F09%252F20%252F636099438300210442-221622141_giphy-8.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D565%26h%3De7e0b82a490b0ebc6f63d73ec04baebca993c22dc1a638077cafc00bde7c98e4%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3650775017%22%7D" expand=1]

Again, this show is super easy to binge-watch because there are only two seasons (so far)! Ellie Kemper is absolutely hilarious and the antics that Titus and Kimmy get into are so much fun to watch!

7. New Girl

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F09%2F20%2F6360994406389881581253960931_giphy-9.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=209&h=3928f5d35945dc4a37b50dc85a79fde760c3eaedc36c20896cdfecb739d99b6b&size=980x&c=608809018 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F09%252F20%252F6360994406389881581253960931_giphy-9.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D209%26h%3D3928f5d35945dc4a37b50dc85a79fde760c3eaedc36c20896cdfecb739d99b6b%26size%3D980x%26c%3D608809018%22%7D" expand=1]

Jess and her roommates in apartment 4D are always up to something and its definitely worth watching. The episodes are short so its easy to sneak a few in every once in a while. Jess' infectious attitude will quickly warm its way into your heart while Nick's cynicism brings out a bitter side of you. And Schmidt's unique approach to life and luxury will always keep you laughing. They add the new seasons often to Netflix which is a bonus!

I realize that all the shows on this list are comedies, but thats because they are the best for background noise and binge-watching! They're easy to follow and fun to watch repeatedly. So happy binge-watching!

P.S. Don't forget that school comes first and that Netflix should only be used to reward productivity.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

Allyson Foutty

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s. Before this time, and throughout it, we often look back at the things we've learned and how they've influenced who we are as people today. Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
