5 Stages Of Binge Watching Netflix

5 Stages Of Binge Watching Netflix

Don't feel bad if you finish a whole season in one day.

We’ve all been there, where we grab our laptops or turn our TVs and prepare for a long night of watching our favorite TV shows or finally sitting down to watch the new movies that were released on Netflix for the month.

1. Finding the show that initially pulls on your interests

This is a crucial part of the process, finding the right show that can keep your interest for the several hours…. or days that you plan on putting yourself into a Netflix coma.

2. Grabbing the necessary snacks and junk food that will ensure you will be safe from starvation.

Once you immerse yourself into your show of choice, getting up from your position on the couch will seem nearly impossible, so it's important to order an extra large pizza with extra cheese and pop a bag of movie theater popcorn to ensure you survive your binge watching.

3. Getting a couple episodes in and contemplating hitting the next button.

It's been a good solid three hours and you have class tomorrow but you desperately need to know what happened after the bar fight in Gossip Girl, so you hit next even though you have an 8am.

4. Continuing to watch episode after episode, burrowing deeper and deeper into your reality TV show.

The sun's coming up but who cares, your favorite two characters just confessed their love to each other no way you can stop watching now.

5. The sad realization that the first season has come to an end.

The 10 Stages Of A 2:30 P.M. Kickoff, As Told By Alabama Students

But we still say Roll MF Tide!


We all have a love-hate relationship with a 2:30 p.m. kickoff at Bryant Denny Stadium, especially when it's 94 degrees.

1. Immediate sadness


What do you mean I have to wake up at 9 a.m. to get ready?

2. Bracing yourself for the worst


It's a marathon not a sprint ladies and gentleman.

3. Accepting the game is going to happen


Rain or shine we are all in that student section screaming our heads off.

4. Trying to wear the least amount clothes possible without being naked on the Quad


Is it me or does it get 10 times more hot the minute you walk on to the quad?

5. Shedding a tear when you walk out your front door once you feel the heat and humidity on your skin


Is it fall yet?

6. Drowning your sorrows inside a Red Solo cup at 11:30 a.m. at a fraternity tailgate


Maybe I'll forget about the humidity if I start frat hopping now.

7. Getting in line to go through security realizing it'll take an hour to actually get inside Bryant Denny


More security is great and all but remember the heat index in Alabama? Yeah, it's not easy being smushed like sardines before even getting into Bryant Denny.

8. Feeling the sweat roll down every part of your body


Oh yeah I am working on my tan and all but what is the point of showering before kick off?

9. Attempting to cheer on the Tide, but being whacked in the head with a shaker by the girl behind you. 


Shakers are tradition, but do we have to spin it around in a full 360 every two seconds? I have a migraine from just thinking about it.

10. Leaving a quarter into the game because Alabama is kicking ass and you're about to have a heat stroke.


I'll watch the rest in air conditioning thank you very much!

We may not love the 2:30 kickoffs but Roll Tide!
