My true life pt. 2: I'm addicted to a Netflix series

Parenthood is taking over my life

My true life pt. 2: I'm addicted to a Netflix series

I’m not even a big tv watcher but this one series has me hooked

Parenthood, a show that is so raw and awkward and beautiful. It has me hooked, for the better or for the worse. Now I’m not here to rate the show (obviously it would be a 6/5 stars) and I’m here to talk about my addiction. It’s getting very serious. I catch myself dreaming about it. I think about it in class. I’ve even contemplated skipping a meal to watch more, I haven’t yet because I still have my priorities straight, but the thought has definitely crossed my mind.

Any opportunity I get I feel the need to watch it. When I say any opportunity, I mean ANY. From the minute my computer opens, an episode is playing. I’m not even going to lie when I say there was an episode on when I wrote this. It’s starting to become my motivation. I’ll start to write an essay and I’ll make a goal to finish the essay before I finish an episode. Granted that doesn’t always work, in which case I stop finish the essay as fast as I can. That way I can continue watching more episodes without the burden of an assignment on my mind.

Whatever happens to them affects me. Whenever one of the characters suffers a break up, my heart breaks. If someone gets a promotion, I’ll celebrate. When Grandpa Braverman landed an audition, I stayed up all night because I was worried as to whether or not he would get the part. Their tears are my tears, my feelings are their feelings. I’m apart of the family, I’m basically a Braverman (that’s the family’s last name for all you outsiders.)

Currently I’m only on season three, so when it ends, I’ll probably have a lot more free time. My life will be a little more dismal but I’ll have more time. I’m not a big TV watcher either, so I’m not really sure how I’ll cope when it’s over, but I’ll keep you updated. My guess is there will be a lot of withdrawals.

The only other series I care to spend my time on is F.R.I.E.N.D.S, but I’ve seen that series 3 times through, forward and backward, so I know it like the back of my hand. And yes, I did cry when it ended. Though I’m much more invested in this show so the post series blues could be severe and I’m doing my best not to think about it.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

Allyson Foutty

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s. Before this time, and throughout it, we often look back at the things we've learned and how they've influenced who we are as people today. Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
