Dear Netflix, Yes, Of COURSE We're Still Watching

Dear Netflix, Yes, Of COURSE We're Still Watching

I know the same show has been on for days, please stop asking.

Do you even have to ask?

I'm truly offended that you even dare to question if I'm still watching another episode of The Umbrella Academy or The Office. After lying on my bed for 12 hours straight, my eyes glued to my laptop screen, only reluctantly moving to use the restroom or get more snacks, I am indeed still binging the same series for the third time.

That blank screen and those four words never fail to make me take a hard look in the mirror. Seeing your reflection on your screen of choice after having binge watched a whole season of a tv show is not a pretty picture... at all.

My eyes? Tired and irritated.

My hair? Unwashed and a mess on the top of my head.

My outfit? I'm wearing pajamas all day, obviously.

Not only do I completely judge my appearance when that dreaded screen pops up, but I start to question my choices for the day. Could I have done anything else with my day than have a Disney movie marathon? Yeah, probably. I could have probably attempted studying for the test I've been worried about, or I could have started the assignments for my math class that I've been putting off for days. Maybe I could have gone to the gym instead of eating a pint of ice cream or scarfing down a family size bag of chips by myself. Perhaps I could have gone downtown or socialized with friends instead of ignoring texts and invites as I finish another episode.

Netflix, there's no need to ask us if we're still watching — of course we are. Stop making lazy college students feel worse about their lack of productivity. Just let us enjoy our favorite shows and movies without the third degree. Let us waste our Sundays in our jammies so we can recuperate after a long weekend out without all the questioning. Let us stay up way later than we probably should to watch another Big Mouth episode without making us feel the need to turn the app off out of shame.

Alright, so I might be being just a bit dramatic. After all, you're only asking us a simple question. A simple but unnecessary question.

You don't have to worry about us, Netflix. We're perfectly fine and quite content being sprawled out across our couch watching our shows and movies. So just please leave us be so we can finish our next season of whatever show it is that's caught our attention this week.

I don't regret my binging marathons, no matter how many times that cursed question makes me feel like I should reconsider my use of time. Trust me, I will be doing it again and again.

Yes, Netflix, we are still watching. Now please let us watch some more in peace.

If you haven't seen the new "Game of Thrones" season 8 teaser trailer, then you need to get out from under that rock you're living under and WATCH.

Game of Thrones | Season 8 | Official Tease: Crypts of Winterfell (HBO) www.youtube.com

For those who don't know me, I'm a huge "Game of Thrones" fan. I've watched and re-watched the series probably six or seven times at this point in my life, and the time spent not watching it is spent watching theory videos about it (hmu for all my season eight predictions).

Since this is the last season, some of us (mainly, me), are upset over it. So, to cope, I've come up with the ultimate "Game of Thrones" drinking game. Please note: you may die by the end of it, but it'll be an adventure (much like the show itself)!

Take a shot every time someone says "Winter is coming."

Take a shot any time that the Stark boys are too goddamn honorable.

Stupid, noble idiots.

Finish your drink every time someone has sex.

Take two drinks whenever you see boobs.

Take a shot every time something bad happens to Sansa.

Which is often.

Finish your drink when someone says the word "ale."

Take a drink every time Tyrion drinks.

Start chugging when Bronn sings and don't stop until he's done.

Take a shot every time Daenerys says "Dracarys."

Finish your drink every time one of your favorite characters dies.

To cope, more than anything.

Take a shot every time someone gets beheaded.

Chug every time Dany rides on her dragon's back.

Take a shot every time incest happens.

Also, surprisingly often.

Take a drink whenever Littlefinger betrays someone.

Take two drinks every time Littlefinger makes inappropriate moves on Sansa.

Chug your drink when Dany has her long-ass title presented to someone, and don't stop until it's over.

Queen Daenerys Stormborn of the House Targaryen, the First of Her Name, Queen of the Andals, the Rhoynar and the First Men, Lady of the Seven Kingdoms and Protector of the Realm, Lady of Dragonstone, Queen of Meereen, Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, the Unburnt, Breaker of Chains and Mother of Dragons.

Take two sips every time Arya kills someone.

Take a sip for every time Jon Snow gets stabbed.

Take a shot every time Melisandre tries to seduce someone. 

Finish your drink whenever an animal dies.

Again, to cope.

Take a drink whenever a White Walker shows up.

Take two drinks whenever they change someone into a wight.

Three if it's a baby.

Take two drinks whenever Ramsay does something psychotic.

Don't forget to drink if it includes Sansa!

Drink any time someone says "The King in the North!"

And any time someone says "dragons."

Take two drinks any time someone unsheathes a sword.

Drink any time a Lady in Red gives some cryptic-ass prophecy.

Finish your drink whenever Beric Dondarrion gets resurrected.

Take a shot whenever someone says "fuck."

And finally, take a shot for every person Cersei kills.

Bonus: Chug a whole bottle of wine when the series ends.

Because the old gods and the new know that we'll need it.

11 Times Tree Hill Ravens' Number 23 Was The ONLY One For You

Always and forever.

469

If you know me, you know the worst day of my life was when "One Tree Hill" was taken off Netflix. I know it's sad, but I did watch "One Tree Hill" about 9 times in 2.5 years. It is hands down my favorite show. Nathan Scott, your classic villain who turns into a good guy is hands down my favorite character. Maybe it's because I liked him as a person in the show, or because he is so cute. Here are 11 times we all would wish Nathan Scott was our boyfriend.

1. Even when he was a jerk, he was still romantic 

Don't say I never gave you anything

"Don't say I never gave you anything" is one of the most classic lines of the whole show. In the beginning, you really want to believe that Nathan is a jerk. This is one of the moments as a hopeless romantic that you have a little bit of faith in him to become a good guy.

2. When he threw rocks at Haley's window and then they had their first kiss 

Naley first kiss

Let's be real, we all dream of this happening to us. In 2019, this probably wouldn't happen with all the technology we have. But come on, wouldn't your heart melt if someone did this to you?

3. When he was hot as hell playing basketball

I mean look at him..."One Tree Hill" is defiantly a show that revolves around basketball. I have never really been that into watching basketball, but let's just say I don't mind watching basketball when Nathan Scott is playing it.

4. When he promises Haley he will always protect her 

Nathan protecting

The way he protects Haley in the show will always continue to make me feel mushy and gushy inside. During this scene, Haley thinks she may have rushed into marriage (I mean they were 17 years old), but Nathan reminds her that he will always be there for her and protect her through it all. This is exactly what he does through all they went through.

5. When he teaches Haley how to play basketball.

Get you a man who balls and can make it romantic. I feel like I have watched so many movies or shows where a guy "helps" a girl play a sport like gold but end up just making it romantic by holding them. This scene was especially cute because Haley is not athletic at all and Nathan is the big basketball start of Tree Hill. He shows Haley how to ball while making it cute and romantic.

6. When he knows what Haley is thinking, even with his eyes closed 

Nathan cuddling Haley

When your boyfriend knows you better than you know yourself. Honestly, that is when you know that you found a keeper. The way Nathan knows Haley so well shows why their relationship is so strong. He knows when she is happy, sad, or when something is going on in her mind.

7. His romantic ways 

Nathan romantic

To put this into perspective, Nathan gives Haley the bracelet and she says it is beautiful. He then responds how she is the one who is beautiful and this is just something to add on. Yes, I know the show is scripted, but this line is one of my absolute favorites. Each time I rewatch it, my heart melts a little more each time.

8. When he gives Haley her dream wedding 

Nathan and Haley wedding

Even after they already got married once, Nathan gives Haley her dream wedding after all they went through. From Haley leaving Nathan to go on tour, and Nathan resisting to let Haley back in his life, they still find a way to make it all work out. Haley always had a dream wedding planned and that is exactly what Nathan gave to her.

9. His loyalty 

loyalty

If this scene doesn't make you cry then I don't know what will. I kid you not, I cry every single time this scene happens. The background music mixed with the adrenalin pumping when Nathan returns to Haley is one of the best Nathan moments of the whole show.

10. Every time he kisses Haley in the rain 

Rain kiss

A rain kiss is every 2000 kids girls dream after watching "A Cinderella Story." Rain kisses became and Nathan and Haley classic kiss throughout the whole show. Every romantic moment, I swear it would magically start raining and Nathan would kiss Haley and it was the cutest thing ever.

11. When he is good with kids 

Nathan with kids

All I have to say is a man who is good with kids exceeds everything else.

Although Nathan Scott is just a fictional character from a T.V. show, I will continue to watch it (on Hulu) and have my heart melt every time he does something the slightest bit romantic. If you are a sucker for romance, "One Tree Hill" is full of young love, relationships, and life lessons.
