Netflix: The Benefits Of Binging

It's exam week. You should probably watch more Netflix.

Netflix: The Benefits Of Binging
Huffington Post

It's exam week. Crunch time. Stress. Panic. Time to pull all-nighters and to cram junk food down our throats that we'll regret later on. But hey, amongst the stress and upcoming tests, there's Netflix. There's "Grey's Anatomy," "Prison Break," "Friends," "Parks and Rec," and "Parenthood" to binge by the season -- so listen to the bad influencing voice in your head that says "Yes, you can fit one more episode in before you really need to study." I know you're thinking, "There are tons of reasons not to listen to that illogical voice of reason." That's cool, but I'm gonna give you the benefits of binging Netflix anyway.

1. You can become an uncertified doctor

If you've watched Grey's, you're basically a doctor and every day is a beautiful day to save lives. Binge watch Grey's over the holidays and you'll be ready to assist in any tragedy.

2. You can break out of prison

I've never been to prison and I don't plan on going...ever. BUT. Just in case I'm framed and the government is after me, I'm totally prepared thanks to "Prison Break." Those brothers have escaped with unprecedented skills.

3. Relatable shows give you peace of mind

Who doesn't love "Friends?" No matter how stressed you are this week, you'll be able to relate to the lovable group hanging out in Central Perk. They always seem to be procrastinating work and responsibilities, too.

4. Your friends are probably binging, too.

How does this benefit your Netflix binge? You can gather together, bring food, binge watch, and study all at the same time!

OK, so I couldn't really think of more benefits to binge watch your favorite show during finals weeks. I'll admit this wasn't my greatest advice, but take it or leave it. It's finals week and we are all oh-so-done and ready to sleep. Good luck, students!

21 EDM Songs for a Non-EDM Listener

If you have been following me for a long time, then you know I write about two main things: relateable articles and communication media based articles. Now, it is time for me to combine the two. For those of you that don't know, I am a radio DJ at IUP, and I DJ for a show called BPM (Beats Per Minute). It is an EDM, or electronic dance music, based show and I absolutely love it.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
