Do you love Game of Thrones on HBO? Can you just not get enough Westerosi drama? Are you literally dying because there’s no GoT on TV? Then these things will help you make it until the 8th and final season airs in 2019!

Here's a countdown if you want to count the seconds until you can watch new GoT again.

1. Re-watch the Series

This one is the go-to move for when you're experiencing Game of Thrones withdrawals. If you can't wait for the next season and need something to tide you over then a re-watch is usually your first move.

2. Read the Books

So, you've already re-watched the show about fifty times and now know all the lines and subtle intricacies. The next step for you is to experience GoT in a different way. George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire novels span 5 books long, and they cover the story as shown on TV up until about the end of season 6. Compared to the show, they have far more detail and tiny bits of foreshadowing scattered throughout the pages. I really recommend this to any GoT superfan, but the fact that there has not been a new book written in the series since July 2011 remains incredibly infuriating (c’mon George).

3. Join the Conversation

Reddit and other websites of the sort contain many communities that revolve around the Game of Thrones television show or the novels. On Reddit for example, r/GameofThrones has content and discussions about the show on HBO.

r/ASOIAF has content and conversation based on the novels. This includes wild theories based on tiny bits of evidence that could reveal what GRRM has in store for the books and show.

r/Freefolk is the GoT memes page. Serving as the r/dankmemes of Westeros, the free folk proudly differ from the normies at r/GameofThrones. I'll leave you with a taste of their content and you can hazard a trip if you want.

3 & 1/2. Make Memes or Crazy Theories

Now that you've read and experienced the various subreddits and such, you can make your own theories, memes, or whatever you want. This truly makes you a part of the community and allows you to experience GoT with other people who love it as much as you do.

4. Play the Games

For my birthday, I was given two awesome gifts: the GoT card game and the GoT trivia game. Both are incredibly fun and allow me to play as the characters I love in the card game. I really like the trivia game because I get to flex my knowledge of the world of Ice and Fire. These games let me participate in the action the world of thrones and finally have my favorite characters not be killed for once.

5. Solve Puzzles

Also at Christmas, my mom gave me a puzzle globe of the world in Game of Thrones (even though it isn’t technically confirmed that the entire globe in GoT has been discovered). I love these because I really love puzzles, Game of Thrones, and room decorations. My globe looks gorgeous in my dorm room, representing my favorite show and also my skill at puzzles.

6. REPEAT

Considering that we have well over 300 days until the next season of Game of Thrones airs and no set premiere date, we’re going to need to find more ways to deal with our withdrawal from one of the most enthralling shows on television. Until then, the only way we’re getting through this is together, until we can gather around the TV on the couch in a little under a year and finally watch Game of Thrones again.

10 TV Shows That Can Replace 'The Office' On Netflix By 2021

"NOOO. GOD NOOOOO."

Netflix has done it again. Created a mass panic. But this time the reason is not that "Friends" is being taken down or renewed for a giant price.

No, this time it is much worse.

Netflix has said in just TWO short years, it is likely NBC will be taking 'The Office' down. I know, it is unthinkable. What else are we suppose to rewatch a hundred times and quote endlessly? You cannot simply take Michael Scott off of Netflix.

The best thing to ever happen was for Netflix to put "The Office", they made it popular again. And you @ me on that. But now they are removing it. I guess we will just have to watch other shows now.

Find other shows on Netflix to watch and to fill the void that NBC is creating for us.

Poetry On The Odyssey: It's a Girl

An ode to the little girl raised to be insecure.

They raise little girls to be insecure

Little girls grow to be big girls

People always ask big girls why they're so insecure

Big girls aren't quite sure

Day after day the big girl can't keep up

She's exhausted

Her soul feels worn

The big girl learns to grow hard

In a way, she's a bit stronger

People call her a bitch

Bitch

What is that?

How can she let that affect her

It's simply the only way to be her

She mourns that little girl

Hoping that one day

She'll be strong
