The Best And Worst Netflix Options To Comfort Your Weekend Anxiety.

For being the first Monday with no class on the horizon, you would think I may find myself in a state of bliss over the rest of the summer. Wrong, the crippling uncertainty has led to some brutal anxiety. How do I cope with it this? Netflix. The streaming service is the best way to comfort some uncertain issues that can’t be immediately handled. In the morning I’ll hit the ground running but right now, after seeing some of best friends graduate today and having to move back home, I’m feeling pretty rough. Some of you may feel the same way right now, so if I can help you out I might feel a little better. So here’s the good bad and ugly in terms of dealing with some uncertainty via Netflix.

The Good.

The Office. This is the bread butter right here. Nothing special but it will get the job done. 30 minute run times mean you can hammer out a couple episodes to take your mind off what troubles you. The Office has also become very re-watchable over the years. The only down side is sometimes the cringe worthy antics of Michael Scott make my skin crawl. Usually around that time Creed says something outrageous and brings it all back.

Stand Up Comedy. When I’m really feeling down, and need some extra juice to get the engines turning this my go to. I don’t need to worry about plot structure or characters I just need someone to tell me jokes to make me happy. Tom Segura, Hannibal Burress, and John Mulany are all great if you are uncertain.

Friday Night Lights. You need inspiration there’s no better than Coach Eric Taylor. He’s quite game is 100 and just hearing him mold the young boys of Dillion, Texas into men via football makes me feel better about myself. Especially after a rough weekend where I might have made some questionable decision. Coach Taylor just spits some wisdom at me and I pick myself up. All this is being done with one of the most epic soundtracks in history. Everything about the show is money, whenever you need it. Just don’t watch the one where Matt’s dad dies in Iraq, just don’t skip it, skip season 4 altogether if you want. Clear eyes, full hearts, can’t lose.

The Bad

Bojack Horseman. I love Bojack but it is not what you want on a Sunday night when you are scared about what lies ahead of you in the morning. For as funny and great as the show it can send you spiraling in self-pity and anxiety. The show cuts into some deep stuff and when it does, it doesn’t give you comic relief you want when it does. Seeing Bojack struggle with his life doesn’t exactly bring me out of the pit of disaster that is my own life.

Madmen. Similar to Bojack, I can’t watch Don Draper’s life crumble around him while he does nothing to better himself and be okay with it. Also seeing everyone smoke makes me want to. That’s not a good way to finish your evening. I blame Madmen for causing me to be a nervous wreck every time I put on a suite. I’m not cut out for that lifestyle.

Any documentary about how awful something is. Catch all title I know but I don’t want to know how bad sea world is right before I lay my head down for the night. Or how messed up the food industry is after dropping 15 bucks at Wendy’s earlier in the day to comfort myself. Or how much Enron screwed people out of money when I’m looking at single figure bank account balance… Moving on.

The Ugly

True Detective. This is a cop out because it isn’t on Netflix, but this is the worst. I don’t even really want to talk about how brutal this show made me feel. The only saving grace was McConaughey’s voice. It was still brutal though, I want no part of this anymore…I’m going to bed I’ll see you all in the morning.

How My Long Distance Relationship Changed Me

My personal experience on distance and dating

10745
Bayly Grosskopf

I never thought I would be the kind of person to be in a long distance relationship. I always though that it was selfish to be with someone when you can't really BE with them. I grew up not having a very good example of relationships in my life. My parents were divorced at age nine and I had to mature a lot faster than most, and I never really got to experience that "one big, happy, family" scenario that every other small town American family seemed to have. I never imagined myself to be okay with seeing someone every once in awhile and practically dating a technological device because you couldn't actually be with the person in real life.
