PSA: Don't Start A New Netflix Series In The Middle Of A Semester

Last spring semester, I saw so much hype on social media about the new "Grey’s Anatomy: episode that recently aired. People were going crazy over this show that I knew nothing about. All of the teachers at the school I was working at came in on Friday mornings discussing last night's drama-filled episode of Grey's. I felt very left out since I have never seen the show, and since everyone raved about it, I decided that I must watch it. To be honest, “McDreamy” and “McSteamy” seemed like characters I would really enjoy (for obvious reasons). I decided to venture onto Netflix one day. Even though I had 18 credits on my plate, I proceeded to click on "Grey’s Anatomy" Season 1, Episode 1. It was the worst and best decision I have ever made. I instantly fell in love with my new show, but quickly fell behind in my classes. The worst part of it all: finals week was quickly approaching. If you decide to "Netflix and Chill" in the middle of a semester, be prepared for the (dangerous) side effects.

You begin to feel guilty for wasting a beautiful spring day by binge-watching Netflix.

Then you realize you are not wasting time, you are simply enjoying life.

Class? What’ class?

You turn down a night out with friends to stay in and watch Netflix.

No one understands why you keep canceling plans.

You refuse to leave your dorm room.

Not even for food.

That is what delivery is for.

You forget to shower.

Your roommate starts to worry about you.

But then she joins you and becomes just as obsessed as you are.

You lie to your mom when she asks how your classes are going.

You keep comparing your relationship to Derek and Meredith's relationship.

Your boyfriend is not amused.

You get severely depressed when one of your favorite characters die.

You died a little bit too.

You realize finals are in a week and you know nothing.

But it's OK, you are switching your major to nursing anyway.

On the other hand, maybe not. Nursing majors can't "Netflix and Chill" all day.

If you are considering staring a new Netflix series, I suggest waiting until break to do so. Not only did my grades go down, but so did my social life. "Grey's Anatomy" completely took over my life. However, somehow I don't regret any of it. At least now I can save lives because Grey's has taught me so much about medicine and diseases. However, maybe I should leave that up to the professionals.

Summer is hot and humid, and it's almost like summer was made specifically to drink the refreshing, cold, crisp wonderful, delicious, nutritious nectar of the gods. Which is none other than beer; wonderful cold beer. With summer playing peek-a-boo around the corner while we finish up this semester, it's time to discuss the only important part of summer. And if you haven't already guessed, it's beer. There are few things I take more seriously than my beer, in order are: sports... and beer. Here are my favorite summer brews:

Bruce Springsteen's Top 7 Lyrics

Everything Bruce says in his classic rock songs.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.
