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.

How I Celebrate Valentine's Day

Every person, every couple celebrates Valentines in different ways, but there are a few things to keep in mind.

How I Celebrate Valentine's Day

Ah, Valentines Day, a day of excitement for some and heart break for many. There are three kinds of people on Valentine's Day: the ones who make it a big deal, a little deal, and those who are single, but Valentine's Day can be fun for anyone if you have the right spirit in mind.

1. You don't have to feel guilty about flirting with customers for tips (or just for shits and giggles).

2. You can be obnoxiously flirtatious with anyone you want. You are free to be that girl that flirts with everybody and makes 'em all smile (it's especially fun when the guy is as cute as Collin Jost). No shame.

3. Making random men nervous with your superior beauty and intense eye contact just for the hell of it is really amusing and empowering.

4. No one gives two poops if ya legs are hairy (your man shouldn't either but *Kermit the Frog meme* That's none of my business)

Black History Month? Try Black History Year

What does Black History Month mean to you?


African Americans have done so much and will forever be remembered for their accomplishments. In my opinion, there is no such thing as Black History Month. All year, we should celebrate the amazing poetry, music, inventions, and accomplishments that has surfaced over the last 100 years. Let's take a look...
