Shows On Netflix You Must Watch
Start writing a post

It's that time of year again.. And no, I'm not talking about summer (well I technically am but..). I'm talking about Netflix binge watching season. School is out for almost four months and, as an avid Netflix watcher, it's my favorite time of the year, because I now have time to catch up on all of my favorite shows. If you're like me, you probably have a short list of shows you haven't watched. However, if you are new to the Netflix game, here's a list of shows you should totally consider watching this summer.

The Vampire Diaries

Of course it's a totally cliche show about super attractive high school students that just happen to be vampires. And werewolves. And witches. And basically every thing in between. Their lives are certainly more interesting (and threatening) than the average teen.

Once Upon A Time

If you grew up watching the Disney classics like most children, you'll absolutely love this show. It puts a modern twist on all the Disney character favorites. And not so favorites.

One Tree Hill

Okay, so I'm just going to be a basic white girl for a minute and say "OMG, just take my word for it. You have to watch it!" It's a show about normal high school students with more drama than they can handle and extreme family issues. But what normal teenager doesn't?

Gossip Girl

It's a show about snobby teens that have more money than most of the adult population in the U.S. and spend their free time ruining people's lives. Who wouldn't love it?

Gilmore Girls

They're making a spin off of the show so there's no better time like the present to catch up. Just your normal mom trying to make her genius daughter's life awesome.

The Walking Dead

Zombies and determined characters. What more do I need to say?

Breaking Bad

High school chemistry teacher turns drug dealer. Things are about to get serious. Someone just say his name already!


A plane crash leaves several people stranded on an island to fend for their lives, not to mention they all have secrets to hide. Things are bound to become pretty interesting.


Two brothers go out on a mission to fight the supernatural beings that were the cause of their mothers death. Suspense and action are constant components of the show.


A girl pretends to be someone else, to get well deserved revenge, after her father is wrongfully charged for heinous crimes. She's out for blood and she won't stop until she gets what she wants.

The 100

It's a post apocalyptic world and people are now living in space. 100 juvenile delinquents are sent to earth to see if the land is inhabitable. Once there, things aren't what they seem. Let's just say it's Zenon meets The Hunger Games.

So many shows... So much time. There are endless possibilities. So why are you still reading this? Grab some friends and food and get to watching!

Exposing Kids To Nature Is The Best Way To Get Their Creative Juices Flowing

Constantly introducing young children to the magical works of nature will further increase the willingness to engage in playful activities as well as broaden their interactions with their peers


Whenever you are feeling low and anxious, just simply GO OUTSIDE and embrace nature! According to a new research study published in Frontiers in Psychology, being connected to nature and physically touching animals and flowers enable children to be happier and altruistic in nature. Not only does nature exert a bountiful force on adults, but it also serves as a therapeutic antidote to children, especially during their developmental years.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
