I'm not really sure what it is but some reasons my parents think TV Land is just the hottest channel ever. I mean, yeah, it has some good shows from the past. But hang on. THEY ARE FROM THE PAST. This is 2018. We have the ability to watch anything we want! There are handful of channels out there with brand new, action packed shows. Of course, my parents would never know this though. In our house the TV stays on one channel...


1. Me: Do we really have to watch M*A*S*H* again?

Mom: *says nothing

Dad: * says nothing


That's fine. It's not like we have Netflix shows to catch up on or anything.


2. How my Dad looks when he watches the same shows every night on TV Land.


Someone come get my Dad. Help me, please.


3. When my Mom asks me, "Have we seen this episode before?"


Yes, we did. In fact, we watched it last night too. So bye now.


4. How my parents act when I talk and it's not commercial break yet.


Well, I guess it's punishable by death.


5. Me trying to figure out why we have cable, premium channels, and Netflix but literally just watch the same shows we watched at the turn of the century.


It's almost like we time traveled back to 1999! We have streaming now for a reason!


6. Me to me: I could unplug the cable right now and end this all.



And then they would have no choice BUT to watch Netflix.


7. How my Dad acts as soon as he gets home from work and turns on the TV.


I guess it's just his hobby now.


8. Me: Can we watch an episode of "Longmire" tonight?

Mom: No, it's too late.

Dad: No, it's too late.


*proceeds to watch three more episodes of "Everybody Loves Raymond."


9. Actual footage of my Mom telling me to be quiet when they watch TV.


For real! Who found this video of my Mom!?


10. When it's a marathon of "The Andy Griffith Show" and you just keep hearing that theme song. Over and over again.


SOS. THE WHISTLING NEVER STOPS. SOS.


11. When I'm watching some vampire show on Netflix and my parents yell at me to "turn something good on."


Okay. Well, you know, like some people actually enjoy TV shows from this decade! Okay!?


12. Me: Mom! Dad! These shows are boring! I don't know how you guys watch them every single night!

My parents:



*throws hands into air. That's it! I give up!


13. Me when I sit down to watch TV with my parents every night, full on knowing that we are about to watch the same shows we watched last night. But I do it anyways cause I love my parents.


Alright, ya'll caught me. They are annoying, they laugh at the same jokes of the same re-runs. But come on? Parents are cool!

9 Reasons You're Still In Love With Tim Riggins In 2019

Clear eyes. Full hearts.

If you're a Friday Night Lights fan, you know very well who Tim Riggins is. And if you've never seen the show, he's basically just the bad boy football star and sensitive hottie of your dreams, all wrapped into one heart-throbbing package. If you haven't already fallen under the Tim Riggins spell, you're about to...


1. He's the star running back of the Dillon Panthers.

Basically every girl who has walked this earth has fantasized about having that cliche football relationship. No shame. #33 on the field, #1 in my heart.

2. He's actually really sensitive.

Tim Riggins may seem hard and dysfunctional on the outside, but he's really just a big softie. He's no JD McCoy, who grew up lavishly and extremely fortunate; Tim had a rough upbringing. He and his brother, Billy, had to work hard all by themselves just to stay above water, which is most likely what keeps him so grounded and humbled.

3. He loves kids.

Tim didn't even think twice about taking his neighbor under his wing when he moved in next door. And for some reason, there's just somethin' about cute boys holding babies that makes us girls swoon.

4. He's genuine and honest.

Sure, maybe he took advantage of his football-star status and slept with most of the rally girls, but once he fell in love with Lyla we saw his compassionate side. (You probably envied Lyla and maybe even hated her for a while because of it...I know I did.)

5. He knows how to have a good time.

It's 5 o'clock somewhere.

6. He's a family man.

Tim took the blame for his brother's crime and went to prison for it...if that's not loyalty then I don't know what is.

7. He's affectionate.

If you either hate Lyla or you want to be Lyla or a combination of the both, you are not alone.

8. He's protective.

Probably the only time you've ever wanted to be in a tornado was when you watched the episode where he shielded Julie from flying debris.

9. He's beautiful.

You're welcome for blessing you with this GIF.

May you all find your own Tim Riggins. Amen.

Poetry On The Odyssey: It's a Girl

An ode to the little girl raised to be insecure.

569

They raise little girls to be insecure

Little girls grow to be big girls

People always ask big girls why they're so insecure

Big girls aren't quite sure

Day after day the big girl can't keep up

She's exhausted

Her soul feels worn

The big girl learns to grow hard

In a way, she's a bit stronger

People call her a bitch

Bitch

What is that?

How can she let that affect her

It's simply the only way to be her

She mourns that little girl

Hoping that one day

She'll be strong
