20 Shows To Binge Watch RIGHT NOW

20 Shows To Binge Watch RIGHT NOW

I may have waisted years of my life watching more TV then I can remember, but hey, I made this really cool list... so that's something!

I am proud to say that I have binge-watched just about everything there is on both Netflix and Hulu. Starting in eighth grade with "90210", I feel that in my 19 years of existence I have seen most TV shows. I am now happy to share my list of 20 shows you need to binge-watch right now! Living vicariously through characters is just like really living your life!

1. "Saved By The Bell"

"Saved By The Bell" is a total classic. 10/10 would recommend. This show follows total babe Zach Morris and his friends through his middle, high school and college years. This show is adorable and I am beyond obsessed with it to this day. Mario Lopez is also on the show and is a total cutie so please please go watch right now!

2. "90210"

I've only watched the remake of "90210" but I heard they're both pretty great. This was the first show I ever binge-watched, even though the second season was the absolute worst. This show follows a group of high schoolers in California who live the most insane extravagant lives that are the most fun to watch from the outside

3. "The Secret Life of an American Teenager"

For me, this show was insanely interesting to watch because these teenagers lived lives so completely different than mine. "Secret Life" follows Annie Juergens who gets pregnant in high school. It is one of my favorite shows I have ever watched.

4. "Parks and Recreation"

"Parks and Rec" is the funniest show I have ever seen with a unique concept on television in my opinion. If you need to laugh, watch "Parks and Rec", nuff said. #TreatYoSelf

5. "Gossip Girl"

Being from New Jersey, I sort of always felt like "Gossip Girl" could be my life. This show follows the socialites of New York City and the insane lives they live. It has similar feel to "90210" but with an east coast vibe. Also, it has Chuck and Nate which no one complains about.

6. "Prison Break"

I was skeptical of starting prison break because I hate scary shows but this show pleasantly surprised me. This show is really what the title implies, about Michael Scofield breaking out of prison. It's so much better than I could ever describe.

7. "White Collar"

I love "White Collar". "White Collar" is the absolute best show that has ever been on TV ever. It follow's Neil Caffrey, a passionate art loving felon, and Peter Burke, an FBI agent. The two are literally the perfect pair and anyone who likes anything, in general, will LOVE "White Collar".

8. "The OC"

Okay, I lied. "The OC" is the greatest show ever. Once again, following the elite teens of Orange County in California with Ryan, the outcast, of the group. All of the teens are dealing with different issues and it truly is a fantastic show. 10/10 would recommend.

9. "Community"

"Community" is a hilarious comedy following a group of misfits in community college. It truly is one of the funniest shows I have ever seen.

10. "Melissa and Joey"

I watched "Melissa and Joey" years ago but I loved it so much. The characters also have cool names if that's something you're into which I totally am. The show is hilarious with an awesome family type dynamic.

11. "Workaholics"

I am obsessed with "Workaholics". I started it by accident and it was the best accident. This is the funniest show on television that follows a very, um, uh...unique?..type of office. Anyone with a sense of humor will love "Workaholics".

12. "The League"

I have never once cared what so ever about football until I started "The League". This show is about a group of men and their fantasy football league. It honestly is so funny and I would recommend anyone to watch it.

13. "Happy Endings"

This show is not necessarily what the title implies. "Happy Endings" follows a group of friends in Chicago and the hilarious lives that they lead. The best part of this show is that it makes your unstable life seem so much more stable.

14. "Nurse Jackie"

"Nurse Jackie" is truly a special show. It is a nurse dealing with a crazy life and drug addiction. It is dark and funny and sad and truly a phenomenal show,

15. "United States of Tara"

"The United States of Tara" is a very different show from anything I have ever seen before. It deals with mental illness and family issues. I was not sure of what to expect from "The United States of Tara" but I was pleasantly surprised of what it was.

16. "Blue Mountain State"

"Blue Mountain State" may have caused me to lose brain cells but in the really good kind of way. This show is about a college football team and their crazy antics that they get into. It was really really a great show and there is even a movie!

17. "Royal Pains"

"Royal Pains" is really really one of my favorite shows ever. It is about a concierge doctor in the Hamptons, Hank, and the company he creates, HankMed. It has drama, it has love, and it is funny. Really really great show.

18. "Dexter"

"Dexter" is the only scary show I have ever seen. I did not finish "Dexter" because I couldn't close my eyes in the shower but I am a total wimp. "Dexter" is about a serial killer who happens to also be blood splatter expert who solves crimes.

19. "Freaks and Geeks"

Total classic. I loved "Freaks and Geeks" because not only how awesome the show is but the cast is literally filled with young stars. The show follows a group of high school misfits. James Franco, Seth Rogan, Jason Segel, and my favorite John Francis Daley. Maybe this is my favorite show.

20. "Hart of Dixie"

I love "Hart of Dixie" so much. Okay this is my favorite show. This show follows Zoe Hart, a big city doctor, who moves to Alabama. There is an amazing love triangle and a character named Lemon. Who could ask for more?

To That Guy

"You are my Love from the Star and I was your love sent from Above"


          Did you know my life was better without you in it? Way back before I even met you? But it was the best when you came unexpectedly. I can’t say that you are the perfect guy because there is no such thing as that. But I appreciate on how you made yourself perfect for me. The first time you laid your eyes on me I was like “woah, that’s the kind of look  I want to see for the rest of my life.” Our first meet was not that memorable, it was in a certain mall and we don’t have that much time because you are flying back to your country. But you know what? It’s not being memorable or what, it is being with the person who stood by beside you.

          I was scared the moment you left my side that day, but it was the scariest when you ask me to be yours and have this thing we called “Long Distance Relationship”. I don’t know what to say or to react that time, I was speechless but part of me was happy, I mean, isn’t that the best feeling in the whole world? When a guy came into your life and accepted the whole of you? Being with you was indeed a ride of a roller coaster. We’ve got our ups and downs, fights and arguments and sweet and bitter love just what like normal couples do. I always told you how blessed I am to meet someone like you. You are my love from the star and I was your love sent from above. We always make God as the center of our relationship. And you always say, “for this relationship to work we just need to be honest and be loyal to each other.” For a moment there, I thought “us” would actually work until the end.

         It’s been how many months since we had our last conversations as a couple right? I know I’ve been really busy this past few days and it’s been a tough fight between the two of us. We tried and fought for the love we thought we had, but things just don’t end the way we expected it to be. I am not writing this to tell everybody the whole story of us instead, I am writing this because for those months that we’ve been together I’ve kept you a secret from everyone. You may call this too late, but I am here now to show the world how great of a guy are you and how thankful I am.

          You are the most effort guy I had ever encountered. Imagine? Sending me those stuffs every month just to remind me that I am loved was the best part of you. Writing a book for me was the most incredible thing you ever did and going home just to see me was the perfect. But I lost all of that. We may lose the relationship we had but I want to thank you for saving our friendship. Can ex-lovers be friends? We’ll see.

          This last gift you sent hit me hard. Your note says “I know you will see a lot of girls holding flowers, chocolates and bears everywhere and I am not there for you to experience it, so I’m sending this instead. I just want to say sorry and thank you. Sorry for the pain I’ve caused and thank you for everything. Moments with you was irreplaceable. I know that how happy we are right now, you and I will always carry a piece of each other, let it be known that we found home in each other’s warmth and you’ll always have a piece within me. You deserve the best and nothing less.” That note made me realize how lucky I am. You are a single lesson, but a lot was learned, what we had made me who I am today, and I am thankful. To that guy who was always there for me, you may not have my heart, but I want you to know that you always have my full support. See you again soon, my friend.

The New In The Old

Sometimes in order to travel forward, it means taking a couple steps back...

Have you ever had one of those day where it seems like nothing is going the way you planned? And all you can do is look back at the mistakes you made or could have done better?

Or have you ever looked back at moments in your life and wished that there was a button that you could push? A button that could cause you to rewind, whatever you did? Or whatever you said?

If only life really worked life that, right?

This year I’ve tried to take a novel approach to this notion. Instead of trying to change the past or run from it. Sometimes it can be better to embrace. Embrace those things that may not have worked out as planned.

Sometimes to travel forward it means taking a couple steps back...

There is a quote from one of my favorite movies My Big Fat Greek Wedding that states, “Don’t let the past dictate who you are, but let it be a part of who you will become”.

Does that mean that we should obsess and dwell over the past? No. I don’t think so. But, I think that if we should face our past mistakes and breathe life into them. Rather than carrying them like burdens on our back.

Now with all this in mind, it’s not an easy thing to do. There are many times that I may think back to little mistakes that I’ve made and shake my head. But acknowledging what we could have done instead and keeping that in mind for the next time is the first step.

American Cartoonist Bil Keane once said “Yesterday’s the past, tomorrow’s the future, but today is a gift. That’s why it’s called the present”.
