Yes, I do want to see Steve Harrington adopt children every day.

Your Not So Basic List Of 9 Binge-Worthy Shows That You'll Never Get Sick Of

If you're sad, bored, or simply looking for a good way to procrastinate that paper you have due in three hours — television is always a great way to deal with any of the above. Some shows are simply not shows you can watch over and over for hours at a time, but there are some that are just so binge-worthy it's scary.

1. Stranger Things

What show could I possibly start with other than this classic?

Whether you're in the mood for some government conspiracy theories, extradimensional aliens, or even just some humor, Stranger Things is a definite go-to.

Who wouldn't want to watch Steve Harrington become the best mother Hawkins, Indiana has ever seen?

2. Sherlock

This show is one you can watch over and over and every time you watch it you catch a new and interesting line.

This BBC mini-movie series is awesome for a rainy day when you feel like you can pay a particularly large amount of attention to the television. Or, you know, just to watch Benedict Cumberbatch run around being the cutest detective you have ever seen.

3. Brooklyn Nine-Nine

While most cop shows are heavy and action-based, Brooklyn Nine-Nine is strictly humorous.

Even in some of the darkest moments of the show, our dear Andy Samberg finds a way to make it funny. Even if you aren't watching for the plot, just go ahead and watch it to hear Gina Linetti's classic lines.

4. It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia

While this show takes a particular kind of humor to appreciate it, it's still one of the most well-written shows I have ever seen.

The humor is dark and crude and truly will have you cracking up while watching it. Same with this show, you seem to catch a new and fun line every time you watch it.

5. New Girl

Awkward and eccentric, New Girl is one of those shows you can watch no matter how many times you've seen the episodes. It's never not funny, and that's a fact.

Jess Day's awkward personality paired with her eccentric male roommates never fails to entertain.

6. This Is Us

This show never fails to surprise its viewers. Every episode is an emotional roller coaster, but the absolute best kind of emotional roller coaster. Not only this, but it'll truly make you raise your standards in what you look for in a man. Unfortunately, no men will ever be Jack or Randall Pearson.

7. Rules of Engagement

I feel like this show is truly underappreciated. This show is similar to any sitcom, but still keeps you on your toes and laughing at all times.

8. Veep

If you thought Julia Louis-Dreyfus' role in Seinfeld ruled, you are not even prepared for her role as the Vice President of the United States.

Though the show is quite literally political, you still are never quite sure what political party Vice President Selina Meyer is part of. Her entire team is completely incompetent most of the time and you get to watch every shenanigan they get into over in Washington, D.C. Plus, it's pretty interesting to watch a show about the government without it being so dramatic and scandalous.

9. The Office

Yeah right, like I was going to forget the most iconic show of all time. This one doesn't even need an explanation. If you haven't seen it, your life isn't complete and that's final.

Preview These Top Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020 Picks — From Luxury Purses To Skincare

Currently 3 million people viewing the Stella McCartney purse I absolutely must have.

Online shopping has been a guilty pleasure of ours for years, but now more than ever it's been a shopping lover's outlet for all our home redecorating projects and resort wear we're purchasing for that trip we had to cancel.

One of my favorite places to (virtually) window shop has always been Nordstrom.

But sometimes, that's not enough — that's when I, like the masses of luxury-, beauty-, fashion-, and decor-lovers around the world count the days down to the annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

In the midst of all of the amazing statistics and records that these players are breaking, though, we also just love the NBA because well, there are some pretty good looking guys out there. Here are the 19 hottest NBA players (in no particular order) you would totally let slam dunk on you now that the NBA has returned.

Rihanna is known for many things: her music, fashion, makeup, and now skincare. As a makeup artist myself, I can confidently say that she rocked the makeup world when she released her makeup line in 2017 and has been influencing the beauty world ever since.

Trying some of her makeup products myself, I know that she doesn't skimp on quality, and even though some of her products may be a little pricey, trust me, you get what you pay for.

- Though as a little girl, I had the silkiest, softest hair that would get compliments everywhere I went, since I turned about thirteen I've since had coarse, dry hair no amount of deep conditioning masks or sulfate-free shampoo could fix.

- I started using the Raincry's Condition Boar Bristle Brush several months ago, and while I noticed that my hair had been softer, silkier, and shinier than it had ever been, I didn't make the connection because I never thought a simple hairbrush could make any difference in my hair texture.

- I will be the first to admit that I thought it was ridiculous to spend nearly a hundred dollars on a hairbrush, but this one eliminates the need for me to use any heat tools or styling products on it.

- I put some oil or a serum in my hair when it's wet, brush my hair with the boar bristle brush once it's dry, and end up with the lowest maintenance, shiniest hair I've had since I was 8 years old.

Bingeing a romantic comedy is always a good idea, and during this pandemic, these movies bring us one of the only elements of romance we can get. Through all the break-ups, obstacles, and struggles in our love lives, romantic comedies have always been there to make us laugh and keep us company while we cry.

While we love these movies for the beyond gorgeous male love interests, the female protagonists are still the ones we always remember. Although rom-coms are far from reality, it is always fun to imagine what our life would be like if a cinematic studio was behind our love life. So what does your favorite romantic comedies say about your dream guy?

Plenty of people are familiar with the "calories in, calories out" (CICO) method of dieting which can be used for losing, gaining, or maintaining weight. This method relies on calculating a person's total daily energy expenditure (TDEE) to ensure that they are not overeating or undereating to achieve their desired weight. TDEE considers a person's height, weight, age, gender, and level of activity to determine what their caloric intake should be — some calculators can factor in body fat percentage as well. When I used a TDEE calculator online, it said that my TDEE would be 1,990 calories if I was trying to maintain my weight, but are all calories created equal? I'd argue that they're not.

It might seem obvious to some of you that 1,990 calories of macaroni and cheese are not healthy at all compared to 1,990 calories of varied foods (fruit, veggies, meat, bread, etc.).
