Running Through Game Of Thrones For The First Time

Up to the end of episode four, anyway.

Running Through Game Of Thrones For The First Time

This article is brought to you by the same person who started to read the Percy Jackson and Heroes of Olympus series in 2014/2015, only about four years after it stopped being popular.

It's been a long time coming, but I recently got access to the first season of Game of Thrones. I'm -- what? -- about 6 years late? It's nothing. And after all of the memes that have run through every news feed to exist, I have references for days but no legitimate substance from the show. So, I invite you to relive your innocent days and, through naive eyes, to watch the show that tore your soul apart and made you hate harder than you knew possible.

Note: At this point, I have watched through Season 1 Episode 4.

Am I supposed to hate the Lannisters so much already?

By the end of the second episode I decided the entire family, excluding Tyrion, are the annoying rich people in every movie with egos so inflated that they have their own feather pillows. Plus, royal twincest and tossing a kid out of a window are pretty much par for the course in royal families. But lying about being disarmed by a woman because of your pre-teen masculinity and getting adorable dire wolves killed in the process? I can't forgive that.

I'm just waiting for Viserys to get what's coming to him

But beyond Joffrey's ignorant, self-indulgent, recklessly violent personality, I may even hate Viserys more. Being so belligerently obsessed with getting his crown back, he repeatedly abuses his sister physically, emotionally and mentally. Going along with that, he's a child with the rank to throw temper tantrums and only have it thrown in his face when the Dothraki are around, or when Daenerys decides to own her Khaleesi role. He's more of a snake than a dragon and I can not wait for him to bite the wrong end of a sword or something.

So does everyone just communicate via veiled threats constantly oooooor...

Considering the way everyone in this show talks to each other, though, that doesn't seem too far off. By the end of episode four, everyone from Jaime Lannister to King Robert has seemed to have issued some sort of threat to another person under the guise of casual conversation and/or banter. It's really helping the whole "everyone is your enemy" thing come through loud and clear.

I hope Arya becomes a badass

If anyone is preparing for their enemies to face off against them, it's Arya Stark. Whether she's armed with a stick, Needle or a practice sword, she's pushing herself so she doesn't end up defenseless. She has a really strong moral compass that strays her away from the royal family politics and any status quo that stops her from being who she is. She's got what it takes to become my favorite, for sure.

I look forward to more interactions between Tyrion and Joffrey

Joffrey has only really done one terrible thing so far, but there's almost nothing more satisfying than watching Tyrion smack him around a bit. I'm not condoning child abuse in the real world, but Joffrey could use a little bit of it, to say the least.

As any other person on this planet, it sometimes can be hard to find the good in things. However, as I have always tried my hardest to find happiness in any and every moment and just generally always try to find the best in every situation, I have realized that your own happiness is much more important than people often think. Finding the good in any situation can help you to find happiness in some of the simplest and unexpected places.

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!"
