10 TV Shows To Binge Watch Over Break

Now that finals are over and you are left with so much time on your hands, there is no better way to spend it than laying in bed and watching episode after episode of a new TV show!

After a long semester all I want to do is go home, cozy up in my bed, and watch TV. Over breaks I can easily get through a season of any show in two day's time and, with winter break being a month long, I have plenty of time to watch and potentially finish new series. Here are 10 of my favorite shows to binge watch after a stressful semester.

1. The Ranch

This is one of the funniest shows I have ever seen. I catch myself laughing out loud often, which is usually a hard task for a TV show to accomplish. Part 6 was just released on Netflix and I am currently making my way through it. Not only is this show hysterical, but Ashton Kutcher is in it and that would be enough for me.

Also if you are a fan of That 70's Show, there is a lot of appearances from that cast as well as Steven Hyde playing the main character Rooster!

2. Fuller House

A new season was just added to Netflix! This show is so lighthearted and cute. It is perfect to watch with friends or family. I like it for the nostalgia quality and cuteness factor. It is also a good show if you just want something on in the background as you do other things.

3. Drugs Inc.

If you like documentaries, you will love this! Me and my roommate were watching episodes of Drugs Inc. throughout the semester and, as soon as we finished one, we had to start another. This show is very interesting and shows a deep look into the lives of people who do and sell drugs. Also, from this show my roommate found out that there are drug dealers in Minnesota... very educational!

4. Gossip Girl

I've probably binge watched Gossip Girl at least four times, but it is always one of my favorites. There is something about watching their rich-kid drama unfold and hating almost all the characters yet being unable to turn it off. It always makes me want to live on the Upper East Side and fall in love with a rich man.

5. Hart of Dixie

I love Rachel Bilson! Also everything about this show is wonderful. It follows a New York City doctor as she moves to a rural Alabama town where she just causes a bunch of problems and eventually falls in love. I feel like every component about this show makes it binge worthy.

6. Gilmore Girls

This show makes me feel so cozy and at home. I think Stars Hollow is such a special place and I would love to just insert myself into their little town. A bonus would be to binge this with your mom so you can feel like Lorelia and Rory!

7. The Night Shift

This is easily my favorite medical drama I have ever watched. I seriously finished it in a week. Unlike shows like Grey's Anatomy, it follows around more than just the surgeons, which I think makes it a lot more interesting. The characters have intense cases, a lot of passion, and interesting personal lives, which makes it hard to stop watching.

8. Law & Order SVU

In the criminal justice system, sexually based offenses are considered especially heinous. In New York City, the dedicated detectives who investigate these vicious felonies are members of an elite squad known as the Special Victims Unit. These are their stories. *DUN DUN*


This show is a classic. Olivia Benson is a queen. You can never go wrong with watching SVU for hours or even days. I rest my case.

9. The OC

THE O.C., (backrow, l to r): Tate Donovan, Rachel Bilson, Melinda Clarke, Peter Gallagher, Kelly Row

I love this show so much and it is the current one that I am binge watching. I'm pretty much just trash for early 2000s teen TV shows, but I stand by this choice. Also Seth Cohen is so cute and funny and dorky and I recommend falling in love with him. Unless you're more into hot and broody bad boy Ryan Atwood, that is also a good choice to fall in love with and I will not judge you for that.

10. One Tree Hill

Out of every show on the planet to binge watch this is the one I would choose time and time again. If I was only allowed to watch one TV show for the rest of my life it would be a no brainer. One Tree Hill is easily the greatest show of all time and so so easy to watch for hours on end. If you aren't already asking yourself "What would Brooke Davis do?" you should probably start.

I Ghosted My Old Self For 5 Months In An Effort To Reevaluate My Life

My life fell apart faster than a drunk dude approaching a Jenga stack.

BREAKING (not fake) NEWS: It's true, you have to hit your lowest before hitting your highest.

I want to share my lowest with you, and I'm almost ashamed to say it had nothing to do with the loss of both of my parents. I like to think I handled that like a warrior.

Turns out I didn't, and the hurt I've been burying from that hit me all at once, the same moment my life fell apart faster than a drunk dude approaching a Jenga stack.

My life flipped upside down overnight back in August. I had my heart broken shattered, lost two very important friendships that I thought were with me until the end, lost my 9-5 job, my health took a hit stronger than a boulder, and I was absolutely lost. For the first time, ever, I let go of the reigns on my own life. I had no idea how to handle myself, how to make anyone around me happy, how to get out of bed or how to even begin the process of trying to process what the f*ck just happened. I was terrified.

Coming from the girl who never encountered a dilemma she couldn't fix instantaneously, on her own, with no emotional burden. I was checked out from making my life better. So I didn't try. I didn't even think about thinking about trying.

The only relatively understandable way I could think to deal with anything was to not deal with anything. And that's exactly what I did. And it was f*cking amazing.

I went into hiding for a week, then went on a week getaway with my family, regained that feeling of being loved unconditionally, and realized that's all I need. They are all I need. Friends? Nah. Family. Only. Always.

On that vacation, I got a call from the school district that they wanted me in for an interview the day I come home. It was for a position that entailed every single class, combined, that I took in my college career. It was a career that I had just gotten my degree for three months before.

I came home and saw my doctor and got a health plan in order. I was immediately thrown into the month-long hiring process for work. I made it a point to make sunset every single night, alone, to make sure I was mentally caught up and in-check at the same exact speed that my life was turning. I was not about to lose my control again. Not ever.

Since August, I have spent more time with family than ever. I've read over 10 new books, I've discovered so much new music, I went on some of my best, the worst and funniest first dates, I made true, loyal friends that cause me zero stress while completely drowning me in overwhelming amounts of love and support, I got back into yoga, and I started that job and damn near fell more in love with it than I ever was for the guy I lost over the summer.

But most importantly, I changed my mindset. I promised myself to not say a single sentence that has a negative tone to it. I promised myself to think three times before engaging in any type of personal conversation. I promised myself to wake up in a good mood every damn day because I'm alive and that is the only factor I should need to be happy.

Take it from a girl who knew her words were weapons and used them frequently before deciding to turn every aspect of her life into positivity — even in the midst of losing one of my closest family members. I have been told multiple times, by people so dear to me that I'm "glowing." You know what I said back? F*ck yes I am, and I deserve to.

I am so happy with myself and it has nothing to do with the things around me. It's so much deeper than that, and I'm beaming with pride. Of myself. For myself.

I want to leave you with these thoughts that those people who have hurt me, left me, and loved me through these last couple of months have taught me

Growth is sometimes a lonely process.
Some things go too deep to ever be forgotten.
You need to give yourself the permission to be happy right now.
You outgrow people you thought you couldn't live without, and you're not the one to blame for that. You're growing.
Sometimes it takes your break down to reach your breakthrough.

Life isn't fair, but it's still good.

My god, it's so f*cking good.

Becoming Kinder To Myself

My biggest bully is my own mind and I'm sick of being the victim.

I've always known how important self-love is, but I've only recently realized the depths of what it means. For me, the hardest part about loving myself is the fact that I've been conditioned to hate myself. I say the meanest things in my head and constantly try to tear myself down. While I am confident in the person I am, I don't think I love myself in the way I need to.

It's 2019, and I've decided it's going to be the year of me. This year, I will fall in love with myself. I will stop thinking I am the problem. I will stop letting my worries get in my way. I am constantly motivating my friends and encouraging them to do whatever is necessary to make themselves happy.

So, why haven't I been doing that for me?

I show kindness to everyone I meet, but perhaps I am the one who needs my kindness the most. I'm never going to get what I want if I feel as though I don't deserve it. I'm never going to achieve my goals if I don't think I have the ability to do so.

I would never kick someone when they're down, so this year, I'm going to start applying that to myself. The negative thoughts will come and go, but it's time that I stop feeding them. I see myself negatively, and the only way that's going to change is if I fight it with a lot of positivity.

Self-love is more than being confident in your own skin; it's being kind to yourself and treating yourself right. I always feel like my mind controls me, but it's time to start controlling my mind. My mind is going to become a place of positivity and encouragement, and it all starts with simply replacing my thoughts that stem from hatred to thoughts that come from love.
