I can't be the only one that has a countdown for the Stranger Things Season 2 premiere, right? And I certainly can't be the only one who has had this countdown since the they watched the last episode of Season 1.

Stranger Things, nominated for 76 awards and winning 21 of those awards, is back for their second season premiering Friday, October 27th. Season 1 left us on quite a cliff hanger, and more importantly, emotionally distressed. If you have not watched Season 1 yet and just so happen to stumble upon this article, go. Stop what you're doing and go watch it. Now.

The first thing that I predict will happen in Season 2 is that Nancy will fight to get Barb back, now that Sheriff Hopper and Joyce Byers went into the Upside Down in Season 1 and were able to successfully get Will back home. Nancy got involved in this situation in the first place because Barb went missing, and she believed there was something more than her "running away," as some of the officers were trying to play it off as is.

As for Will's fate, if some of you remember the last episode of Season 1, Will is seen in the bathroom of his home. He had told his mom (Joyce Byers), he was going to wash his hands before dinner when he starts coughing. He coughs up a toxic looking slug and the seemingly normal looking bathroom turns into the same bathroom but in the Upside Down. This scene alone tells us that whatever we thought was over, is not at all. I think that Will will end up with serious conditions, having trouble depicting the real world from the Upside Down. I also think he will help lead the group back into the Upside Down and take down Hawkins Lab.

Sheriff Hopper, in my opinion, was the main character throughout Season 1. He was the one able to see what is wrong with the members of Hawkins, and that in this town, there is something much more strange going on. He knew that they were hiding something and took it upon himself to break in and figure out what it was. Although they successfully got Will back, and no one asked any questions, I think something much darker will open another portal to the Upside Down and this time Hawkins won't be able to hide it. One of the last scenes was Hopper putting waffles and some Christmas snacks into a box in the middle of the forest. If you also remember, Eleven had sacrificed herself for her friends, the main group of boys, to survive from the Demogorgon. I know I am not the only one that believes that Hopper was placing those waffles and goodies in the box for El. I do not think this was the end of El, and she will be back to help the group once again in Season 2.

The last thing I want to bring up is when Joyce and Hopper were looking for anyone that could help give information about Will, when they stumble upon a woman by the name Terry Ives. This woman is believed to be Eleven's biological mother, but has never been officially said. I believe this character will have a larger role in the new episodes, and Eleven will be introduced to her, sparking some sort of memory or something to make her question what she has known for all her life.

I'm hoping for the strangest, craziest things to happen in Season 2, focused around El and the boys entering the Upside Down together. This should be a very interesting season, so everyone do yourselves a favor: take October 27th and 28th off, hunker down in your favorite blankets and get ready to visit the Upside Down once again.

50 Quotes from the Best Vines

If you're picturing the vines in your head, you're doing it right

In 2017 we had to say goodbye to one of the best websites to ever roam the internet: Vine. In case you have been living under a rock since 2013, Vine was -(sad face)- a website and app that took the internet and the app store by storm in Winter 2013. It contained 6-second videos that were mostly comedy- but there were other genres including music, sports, cool tricks and different trends. Vine stars would get together and plan out a vine and film it till they got it right.

It was owned by Twitter and it was shut down because of so many reasons; the viners were leaving and making money from Youtube, there was simply no money in it and Twitter wanted us to suffer.

There's been a ton of threads on Twitter of everyone's favorite vines so I thought I'd jump in and share some of my favorites. So without further ado, here are some quotes of vines that most vine fanatics would know.

8 Things My Younger "Sister" Taught Me without Even knowing it

Family isn't defined by blood.

13
views

As my younger sister--the one that's not really my sister, but has always felt like one, you have taught me a lot of lessons. Some of those have been more intense than others, but I'm thankful for them all. Over the course of the past seven or so years, you have been influencing my life for the better –– and that's exactly what little sisters are for! Oh, and to make fun of and hang out with of course.

1. It's okay to give her all of your unwanted (probably too small) clothes.

Buying clothes is sooo expensive and this is a great way to show her you care! You want her to look cute and just because you don't fit into them anymore.

2. Family isn't defined by blood.

We all know this is true.

3. It is important to have a goofy side.

Being serious all the time can drain you--being able to have this goofy side can really help to ease your mind.

4. A true friend is one you can go days (or even weeks) without talking to and when you do speak , it's as if you never stopped.

5. Make sure you get the right size nose ring.

The other day, she called me in a panic because she couldn't get her new ring in! Then I did the same thing... so, lesson learned!

6. Food will always be something people bond over.

Giphy

I cannot even count the amount of times we have hung out simply to eat. We are foodies for sure.

7. Always do your homework ahead of time.

I struggled to accept this at first, but soon grew to appreciate her hard work ethic in school. If it wasn't an A and wasn't done ahead of time, it wasn't going to work for her. She inspired me to carry this on to college and other aspects of my life.

8. You do not need to depend on makeup to feel pretty.

This one is pretty self-explanatory. A lot of girls won't even leave the bathroom after they shower until they have makeup on an we really shouldn't be that judgmental of one another. Imperfections and all, you are still pretty without makeup.
