I am a big TV show enthusiast. I can spend hours binging shows on Netflix, or dedicate an hour to a show's time slot each week. There is nothing quite like falling in love with a show and connecting with their characters.

When our favorites feel pain, so do we. When our favorites are happy, then we are happy. So when it is time for a show to end or a certain characters' story is concluded, sometimes the writers do a good job and give the characters justice.

Other times...not so much. I created a list of TV show characters who got a terrible ending and did not deserve it. Whether it be out of character writing or an unfair death, here are characters who deserved better.

1. Allison Argent (Teen Wolf)

Of course, she is at the top of this list. There is nothing I love more than a strong and bad ass female lead. She died to save her friends but I really wish her story did not end here. Her loss was a loss of Teen Wolf's pack, and she deserved so much more than this ending.

2. Stefan Salvatore (The Vampire Diaries)

The award of "Most Robbed Character in TV history" goes too... Stefan. Hands down. The Vampire Diaries was HIS show, and after 8 long seasons, the writers wrote him off in a horrible way. I will never not be bitter about his ending. #JusticeForStefan

3. Cheryl Blossom (Riverdale)

At first glance, the character that is Cheryl Blossom can seem eerie, mean, and a bit harsh. But it is always the characters that have hard edges that have a soft, broken side to them. After her brother was killed by her own father, how could she not be savage at times?

4. Hannah Baker (13 Reasons Why)

Is this not an obvious choice for this list? The show caused tons of controversy after following the life of a teenage girl who committed suicide and showing the events that led to her death. To say she deserved better is an understatement, but I hope this show changes people's minds about bullying.

5. Nate Archibald (Gossip Girl)

An oldie but goodie. Nate Archibald: the golden boy of the Gossip Girl universe. Not only was he ALWAYS out of the loop and confused whenever things would go down, but his finale was lacking. It seems like every character got a happy ending except him. My poor sad puppy.

6. Poussey Washington (Orange is the New Black)

I still cry over Poussey and my heart still aches. This show always pushes the boundaries and makes me think in new ways, and her ending did that for sure. I felt for everyone affected and it made me want to take action in today's world.

7. Bonnie Bennett (The Vampire Diaries)

Okay so are we ever going to talk about Bonnie's ending? Season after season, she constantly sacrificed herself (and sometimes her own life... more than once... this is The Vampire Diaries after all) for her friends, and she got the season finale in return. SO unfair for such a sunshine.

8. Michael Cordero (Jane the Virgin)

OUCH, THIS HURTS. Michael's death was unexpected and shocking. His character brought such warmth and kindness to the show that I am still missing it to this day. The show made me feel like I lost someone as well. #MichaelDeservedBetter

9. Finn Hudson (Glee)

What an unfair ending for the show AND in real life. A humble and sweet character and person both lost. I cried enough at the memorial episode that I could fill up the Atlantic Ocean. We would all have loved to see Finn and Cory have a happy ending.

Michigan Rain Vs. California Rain

SO, I've just recently had the fortunate experience to be reminded just how Michigan rains. Now, before you roll your eyes at me, I HAVE EXPERIENCED RAIN (in regards of the the popular joke that Californians haven't). However, I have to agree; after experiencing one of Michigan's thunderstorms (with my college's sirens blaring in the background), it comes to mind just how different "rain" is between the two states:

If you have been following me for a long time, then you know I write about two main things: relateable articles and communication media based articles. Now, it is time for me to combine the two.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
