Have you seen "Stranger Things"?

It's an eight-episode Netflix original series, that gave us all the feels and left us wanting more. If you haven't watched it yet, go watch it because you do NOT want to be spoiled! If you have, read on and relive all the emotions this show made you feel.

1. The realization that something horrible is about to happen.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F27%2F6360792092429491652099618911_giphy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=145&h=ace658de203fdde6995b463228978b2551bdbd45b9c9908d878b59341c796985&size=980x&c=832746389 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F27%252F6360792092429491652099618911_giphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D145%26h%3Dace658de203fdde6995b463228978b2551bdbd45b9c9908d878b59341c796985%26size%3D980x%26c%3D832746389%22%7D" expand=1]

The thing is, we have no idea what. Which might be all the more terrifying. The scariest part of the first few episodes was having no actual picture of what we are afraid of.

2. The all-consuming anger that Eleven's own father treated her like an experiment.

Not to mention how sad you were when she still only wanted his love and acceptance.

3. The joy you felt when Will talked through the lights.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F27%2F6360791887625748841878220452_stranger-things-ep3-40-27.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=323&h=0ff35e04082674e35bfa4d45a325bcb32b30024d6c03f7a34fdf43340add1031&size=980x&c=1737016467 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F27%252F6360791887625748841878220452_stranger-things-ep3-40-27.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D323%26h%3D0ff35e04082674e35bfa4d45a325bcb32b30024d6c03f7a34fdf43340add1031%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1737016467%22%7D" expand=1]

And they all thought she was crazy.

4. The terror you felt when Will talked through the lights.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F27%2F636079183569402308-569678923_tumblr_oajacrie6x1r0ywveo1_500.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=884&h=daab29e2e8edf539ba3c00b46c1e13d87c35e0cff2ce3dd90d54a14c368ac3c5&size=980x&c=2261710283 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F27%252F636079183569402308-569678923_tumblr_oajacrie6x1r0ywveo1_500.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D884%26h%3Ddaab29e2e8edf539ba3c00b46c1e13d87c35e0cff2ce3dd90d54a14c368ac3c5%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2261710283%22%7D" expand=1]

"How can I help you?"

R. U. N.

5. If "Awww" is an emotion, you felt it at this moment.

When Eleven thinks she looks pretty. And Mike thinks Eleven looks pretty. And everything is so cute that you actually can't deal. It's a nice break from the terror.

6. The hopelessness of this scene.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F27%2F6360791999798131061052250600_stranger-things.1.2.3134000.62.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=12&h=080c9a4ec2d509b2469f5a230a284b8971d01ceaad699950055b23bb35b98b19&size=980x&c=3627329102 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F27%252F6360791999798131061052250600_stranger-things.1.2.3134000.62.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D12%26h%3D080c9a4ec2d509b2469f5a230a284b8971d01ceaad699950055b23bb35b98b19%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3627329102%22%7D" expand=1]

Not only did you feel bad for Barb, the supportive best friend when she waited for Nancy even after Nancy told her to leave, you also felt horrible when you saw the blood hit the water. Because you knew what was coming next.

7. The middle school satisfaction you felt during this scene.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F27%2F636079210097634165161976236_stranger-things.1.4.1876000.65.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=944&h=bb9e39f65c26f8e7a4ba4b482aa99dea5005ad42253953218cbed85ddce25bb6&size=980x&c=3574833314 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F27%252F636079210097634165161976236_stranger-things.1.4.1876000.65.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D944%26h%3Dbb9e39f65c26f8e7a4ba4b482aa99dea5005ad42253953218cbed85ddce25bb6%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3574833314%22%7D" expand=1]

Even that nose-swipe was sassy enough to fend off the bullies.

8. The relief after Eleven saved Mike from falling to his death.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F27%2F6360791865079243901626156309_eleven-stranger-things-1.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=258&h=bdd107fca52756bf5e94839bb0427bef72849ded24cbde1a013f86aa5de6f5b9&size=980x&c=2954592927 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F27%252F6360791865079243901626156309_eleven-stranger-things-1.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D258%26h%3Dbdd107fca52756bf5e94839bb0427bef72849ded24cbde1a013f86aa5de6f5b9%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2954592927%22%7D" expand=1]

And this group hug was just the cutest.

9. The second-hand power you felt when Eleven flipped the van.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F27%2F636079185284020545-1998729914_fd23926032abe6e0593cf1a3e2f72c5f135e5fce.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=51&h=17cfbfcb85121b3ce8e9701c567090a50c8b8b922b51b9e8a9fb104d25bdcca5&size=980x&c=1865306535 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F27%252F636079185284020545-1998729914_fd23926032abe6e0593cf1a3e2f72c5f135e5fce.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D51%26h%3D17cfbfcb85121b3ce8e9701c567090a50c8b8b922b51b9e8a9fb104d25bdcca5%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1865306535%22%7D" expand=1]

Our reaction was the same as Dustin's:

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F27%2F6360792890038975381827912179_tumblr_oan9r2RmBy1v65ieho3_250.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=178&h=c5449e5a7c48582b11615987a3943df2b20324cdb894479eab3717c52a2df29a&size=980x&c=4090165360 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F27%252F6360792890038975381827912179_tumblr_oan9r2RmBy1v65ieho3_250.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D178%26h%3Dc5449e5a7c48582b11615987a3943df2b20324cdb894479eab3717c52a2df29a%26size%3D980x%26c%3D4090165360%22%7D" expand=1]

10. How awful you felt with every revelation we got about the Sheriff.

And you didn't think he would be central to the story, did you?

11. This scene when Nancy turned into a fighter.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F27%2F636079191068605363919499645_NancyGun.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=888&h=d465f1c0b69907efbf7d9edae8cc287db86d7344849511a695c297e70c78156c&size=980x&c=1822496370 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F27%252F636079191068605363919499645_NancyGun.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D888%26h%3Dd465f1c0b69907efbf7d9edae8cc287db86d7344849511a695c297e70c78156c%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1822496370%22%7D" expand=1]

Nancy, who was so sweet and quiet, kind of turns into a ninja in order to get her best friend back.

12. How proud you were of Steve's character development.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F27%2F636079200651698375-1956045885_636079199355678304-753799327_tumblr_oao6xcWi5Q1srnvs1o1_500.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=78&h=241cf357b501d144890f9ac2ded12289428f84a0068d57a67cfa4a06c96a9723&size=980x&c=2773427498 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F27%252F636079200651698375-1956045885_636079199355678304-753799327_tumblr_oao6xcWi5Q1srnvs1o1_500.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D78%26h%3D241cf357b501d144890f9ac2ded12289428f84a0068d57a67cfa4a06c96a9723%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2773427498%22%7D" expand=1]

I still don't know where I stand on the Steve-Nancy-Jonathan love triangle, though.

13. The strength and sadness of this sacrifice.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F27%2F63607918711218462314133318_eleven-demagorgon-goodbye-mike-gif.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=912&h=c7001b7caee060c299b283592d104168c0edc843afaab4ec6a3f57880837c2dd&size=980x&c=4056225013 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F27%252F63607918711218462314133318_eleven-demagorgon-goodbye-mike-gif.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D912%26h%3Dc7001b7caee060c299b283592d104168c0edc843afaab4ec6a3f57880837c2dd%26size%3D980x%26c%3D4056225013%22%7D" expand=1]

14. Even though it's bittersweet because Eleven is gone, this friendship makes your heart happy.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F27%2F636079184244952876-798821572_84cbf393-stranger-things-1-0-12000.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=788&h=28d8ee416f17e2f7e1e8cbbfeae4f8ea51a6dd4454384789d2320eb89d82487f&size=980x&c=228529485 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F27%252F636079184244952876-798821572_84cbf393-stranger-things-1-0-12000.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D788%26h%3D28d8ee416f17e2f7e1e8cbbfeae4f8ea51a6dd4454384789d2320eb89d82487f%26size%3D980x%26c%3D228529485%22%7D" expand=1]

One of the most real representations of middle school friendships.

15. THIS.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F27%2F6360792106760220111916603591_giphy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=184&h=cc8c84df0e14467e5e65492078a314a94cbbddcf657bad3d4727c8ba2548ead0&size=980x&c=2495118234 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F27%252F6360792106760220111916603591_giphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D184%26h%3Dcc8c84df0e14467e5e65492078a314a94cbbddcf657bad3d4727c8ba2548ead0%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2495118234%22%7D" expand=1]

NOOOOOOOO.

So now we wait for the second season, which is confirmed to be happening (YAY!). The only problem is, we have no idea when this is happening. So, in the mean time, enjoy this adorable picture of our favorite best friends.

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?

14465

If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
