8 Thoughts Everyone Who Does NOT Watch Game Of Thrones Can Relate To

For those of us who aren't really into mythical creatures and people killing each other on camera.

8 Thoughts Everyone Who Does NOT Watch Game Of Thrones Can Relate To

Nowadays, it feels like everyone everywhere is a huge Game of Thrones fan. Don't get me wrong, I don't have a problem with the show or its +21039384930 person fandom, either. If anything, I'll admit a show with that large and strong of a following must be amazing. But, as an outsider, here are some thoughts that go through my mind every time the topic of GOT comes up.

1. Should I start watching???


Everyone tries to convince you to watch. Your mom watches, your dad, your friend, your friend's friend, your boyfriend, even your DOG. Should you just start to? I mean if that many people love it so much it has to be good, right?

2. Does every single person *on this planet* watch except for me?


Why does Game of Thrones come up in every single conversation I take part in? Does seriously everyone watch the show except for me?

3. It can't be that scary/gruesome...


Ok, we get it. There are humans eating humans and weird creatures and old people with beards...I just don't get how a show about mythical creatures can be scary.

4. How can a show with dragons in it be that good?


Maybe it's just me but the last good show I watched that had dragons in it was Dragon Tales. I thought dragons were for fairytales and children's shows. Can a show for adults with dragons in it really be that great?

5. Should I just pretend like I do watch it when everyone else in the group is talking about it...?


In all honesty, the FOMO is getting kind of old. I feel left out of every conversation that has to do with Game of Thrones (which at this point is pretty much just every conversation in general). So, should I just pretend like I do watch and save myself from embarrassment?

6. New episode tonight = ~no plans~ because everyone is watching


When every human being on planet Earth watches, life is pretty boring during the new episode premieres. Everyone's plans consist of watching the show, so Sunday evenings = no plans time. Not complaining, though.

7. Why the FRICK are people are dressing up as characters from the show?


I'm sorry but WTF. Feels like we're in middle school again and the new Star Wars just came out.

8. When the heck did this show even become so popular?


Not that I don't remember hearing little things about Game of Thrones here and there a few years back, but now it seems like here and there has become literally frickin' everywhere. Somehow everyone got the memo to start watching - except me. I would start now, but I think it's already gone too far for me to catch up.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
