Because Eleven is everything.

11 Reasons We LOVE Eleven

Can we just talk about Stranger Things for a moment? Like many people I know , I have been sucked into this Netflix phenomenon, and I can't get enough of it! Thankfully, the trailer for season two was recently released.

While 2017 seems impossibly far away, it gives fans like us something to hope for and clamor over while we wait to see how the story continues. So, to help pass the time, here's a list of 11 reasons Eleven is near and dear to our hearts!

Before you scroll down, it should be noted that this list contains SPOILERS for Season One of Stranger Things. If you haven't seen it yet, what are you waiting for? Check it out (exclusively) on Netflix.

1. She's a strong, independent young woman who knows what she wants.

And gets what she wants. And what she wants is the delicious taste of Eggo waffles. Get it, girl!

2. She loves her friends.

She might even love them more than we do. Maybe.

3. Speaking of love...

Mike + Eleven = OTP! Because it would be weird to go to the Snow Ball with your sister.

4. She's not shy when it comes to fries.

I feel like we could just go to Red Robin and hang out in our very own judgement-free zone. Keep those bottomless wedges flowing!

5. She's Daddy's Girl.

There will always be a place in her heart for her Papa. Even if she would murder everyone else in the room without a second thought. That's devotion.

6. She speaks her mind.

Even if that means almost blowing her cover. Friends don't lie, but they do cover for you from time to time....

7. She knows how to get out of a jam.

Even if it's a traffic jam. L8er, h8ers!

8. Her #SQUADGOALS are on fleek!

It doesn't matter where. It doesn't matter when. No worries. Eleven's always got your back in epic fashion.

9. She knows when she's in too deep.

Even Eleven can be vulnerable at times, usually due to her selflessness and affiliations with those around her. But if Papa would have only listened, none of this would have ever happened.

10. We know she's still out there. Somewhere.

After all, someone has to eat all those Christmas cookies and waffles that Hopper leaves in the drop box. It was empty when he lifted the lid! #ElevenLives!

11. And, lastly, as Dustin would say...

And we love her. And we can't wait to see her again in Stranger Things, Season Two.

Is Meaningful Casual Sex A Paradox?

Why noncommittal sex is more complicated than we'd like to think.


I lost my virginity to a graduate student from Los Angeles. We’d met at a rundown cafe whose Yelp page complained of an alleged rat infestation. His name was Ken and he was 25. What drew me to him was the peculiar way his mouth was perpetually fixed into a sideways, half-moon shape that was like a smirk but without any trace of smugness. But the two most striking parts of Ken by far were the dinner plate roundness of his face and his small, expressionless teddy bear eyes. Of the things that mattered to him, there was his best friend, a college dropout who sold computer parts in Toronto, and sex.

13 Signs You Are A True Cancer Of The Zodiac

Calling all babies born June 21st - July 22nd!

My Astral Life

I'm the first to admit that I am one of THOSE people who uses their zodiac sign as a description of themselves. I realize not everyone believes in astrology-related anything, and there are plenty of people who don't fit their signs. However, I'm one of the people who truly fits their sign to a tee. I'm a Cancer, a Crab, a Moon Child. It's currently our season fellow Crabs! So without further ado, here are all of the signs that you're a Cancer.

The Blessing of Lacking Sex Appeal

To all the fellow non "it" girls out there


Lacking sex appeal is not a desirable thing. It makes you fee not ugly, but wrong. Not having charisma is not a life goal. It doesn't make you fee friendless, but isolated. Not being the "it" girl happens, and tonight (and every nigh prior to this)

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

It is truly the worst place to be

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

Look. If you are anything like me, complaining about being single is such a hard thing to because you are genuinely happy for your friends, but as they continue to be happy in their relationships, the ever crushing weight of being the single friends can become overwhelming. For context, my primary friend group consists of four people. We are all roommates and it is a great time here. All three of my roommates have boyfriends/girlfriends, which makes our friend group of four quickly jump to seven, and it is wonderful! I love my roommates so much and I love their S.O's, but no matter how much I love them I always get extremely jealous and sad. The sad thing is that the only part that ever truly ends up bugging me is that since I am single, they are my go-to top priorities and it has been really hard to watch myself slip from the top of their go-to's to not being their go to when they feel the weight of the world. What makes it harder is that expressing that I feel alone and unwanted makes me sound jealous and like I don't want my friends to hangout with their people. I get it. I do. But there are just days I want to be someone's first pick and I'm not.
