The Truth About 'Post-Netflix' Depression

Will we ever find another show?

The Truth About 'Post-Netflix' Depression

Dear every Netflix viewer,

I know what you are going through. That one special show has just ended, and you do not know if you’ll ever find one like it again.

Once finishing, the mere mention of the show sends you through a bout of nostalgia. Seeing the show disappear from your “continue watching” section, makes you want to cry.

Trust me, we’ve all been there.

I just finished One Tree Hill. Before that, I finished The Vampire Diaries, Gossip Girl, and many others. After the last episode of the last season that graced my screen, I sobbed. For real. I’m not joking. A good television show has you invested in the characters it portrays every episode. We wonder if Caroline will get Stefan (The Vampire Diaries). We long for Dan to seek redemption from his sons (One Tree Hill). We want Roman to find true happiness (Hemlock Grove). Or, even simply, we want to know who the heck Gossip Girl is and how that will affect the characters.

From the spoilers, cliffhangers, binge- nights, and endless gasps for air, ‘Netflix and chill’ has been wonderful and yet so heartbreaking.

After my recent heartbreak with One Tree Hill, I promised myself that I would just re-watch it. This is exactly what I said after every other show. But, I know that there are more shows out there for my eyes to see and for my heart to invest in.

I guess that’s my advice to you: find another show that makes your heart skip a beat, inspire you to do more, and one that makes you laugh until your sides hurt.

In other words, what would Brooke Davis do? (sorry, I’m still in the post-show depression phase so bear with me with all the One Tree Hill references)

Holidays With A Small Family

I wouldn't trade what we have for the world.

Matt Johnsn

When I was a kid I always went to my grandparents house whenever we celebrated any sort of holiday. We were a decently sized family and it was always a blessing to be in their house and surrounded by love during the holiday season. However, that all changed when my grandfather passed away and my grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. The family then began to drift apart and life went on, and we ended up all celebrating our own holidays with other family members.
