I Am Addicted To Crime Shows And I Need Help ASAP

I Am Addicted To Crime Shows And I Need Help ASAP

I can definitely tell you who broke into your car. Don't even bother calling the police.

Hi, my name is Katherine, I am eighteen years old, and for the last nine years, I have been addicted to crime and legal tv shows. I think that it all comes back to my mother, because she's also addicted to crime and legal tv shows, and I used to always watch tv with her when I was little, which was really the start of my addiction. Since then, I have always watched crime shows, never getting tired of them. Even though they are all kind of the same, I will never get sick of them.

They control my life. They always have, and they probably always will.

For a good while in middle school, my addiction was so bad that I was convinced that I was going to join the Boston Police Department and become a detective and do a million undercover missions.

That did not happen, and probably will not happen, but isn't it nice that the shows at least motivated to do something? I think that it's a good thing, but I also clearly have a bias here.

Are you extremely invested in my addiction and wondering just exactly what shows I am addicted to? Of course, you are! But look right ahead, as I will show them to you.


It was the original! And it's been one forever! And it's amazing!

2. NCIS: Los Angeles

The NCIS franchise has done some great things for the world, believe me.

3. Rizzoli and Isles

It's based on a series of books! It takes place in Boston! It's centered around two women who are at the top of their fields! Just watch it it's on Hulu.

4. Blue Bloods

It's centered on an entire family of police officers and one prosecutor! It has Richard from F.R.I.E.N.D.S! They always have big family dinners and it's really cute okay.

5. Hawaii Five-O

It takes place in Hawaii and literally everyone on the show is amazing and I love them. Also, it's on Netflix so like just watch it already?

Thank you for listening to my rant on crime shows. See you next week.

I was never really big on cocktails. Tequila soda is always a go-to drink for me because of its simplicity and, to be honest, lack of extra calories from mixers chock-full of sugar, chemicals, and other unknown ingredients. I like tequila, and like to be able to really savor it.

This all changed when, a couple of years ago, a friend of mine made me a margarita from scratch — no funky mixers involved — and it tasted incredible. It was light, refreshing, and complemented the tequila without overpowering it.

I was blessed with thick, full hair up until my late teens. At the time, I cursed my hairiness — this was before full eyebrows became trendy or cool, and were instead a point of bullying many of my fellow full-browed teens can relate to.

Later in my 20s, hormonal stability was something I was thankful for, though a major side effect ended up being hair loss — on my head, lashes, and brows. I now find my filling in my brows on an almost daily basis. As much as I enjoy toying with and testing out different brow-filling products, it'll never be quite the same as being able to have "I woke up like this" full, Gigi Hadid-esque brows.

May Is Mental Health Awareness Month, A Reminder We Need Even More In Quarantine

You're going through something brand new — that's worth talking about.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month. This isn't new to 2020, but oh man, if we ever needed a reminder about the importance of mental health, now is the time. With different states all over the place in regard to stay-at-home orders, phased reopenings, and a "new normal," we're experiencing conflict, fear, changes, and unknowns that can easily trigger mental struggles we already have or spark feelings we've never had before. Yes, May is always Mental Health Awareness Month, but in quarantine, that need for positive mental health is taken to a whole new level.

These 11 Face Masks On Etsy Support Small Businesses While Fighting The Spread Of Coronavirus

We're staying safe as states start lifting lockdown guidelines.

I, like most people who have had the luxury of being able to stay at home during this time, haven't spent much time outdoors at all. But when I do brave the great outdoors for a walk or to get to the grocery store, you won't find me without a mask.

My family and I were lucky enough to have family friends who were sewing some and had extras to give to us, but most of my friends and loved ones outside my immediate family have had to order some (or make a makeshift one out of scarves or bandanas).

13 Reasons We're Using Quarantine As The Ultimate Excuse For Online Shopping This Month

The one thing we haven't distanced from is our bank account.

Throughout quarantine, I've been FaceTiming most of my friends in a full turtleneck or the go-to cozy sweater I keep wrapped around the chair in my room. Either way, I always have tea in my hands to keep myself warm — till this past week.

For most of the country who hasn't had the luck of quarantining in 90-degree weather on their family's lake house or with a backyard pool, things began to change this month. Our favorite shows came out with summer seasons, the sun came out, and we started spending more time outside.
