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:

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.

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.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

2235
J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

Allyson Foutty

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s. Before this time, and throughout it, we often look back at the things we've learned and how they've influenced who we are as people today. Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.

11192

Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
