Top 5 Best (And Worst) Shows to Binge On Netflix
Gawker

1. Stranger Things

I know it sounds super overrated and that everyone is talking about it, but they're talking about it for good reason. It's suspenseful, it's creepy; it's got all those plot lines that make you want to throw your computer against the wall but also click 'Next Episode.'

2. Grey's Anatomy

Pretty typical, but if there is any show that is both the best and the worst at the same time, it's Grey's. The characters are perfect, and yet there's always some new tragedy that they have to overcome. With every new trauma, we lose a patient, an important character and also traumatizing to everyone in the audience. But we love to hate it and can't help but fall madly in love with the people at Seattle Grace. (Curse you, Shonda Rhimes.)

3. Lost

It's an emotional roller coaster from start to finish with new adventures around every corner along with the occasional polar bear. Just when you think it can't get any worse for these people stuck on a deserted island (or so they think), it gets way, way worse. Every episode leaves you with new questions that you fear will never be answered, so you can't help but watch until your eyes are tired. Love it, hate it - no matter how you feel - binge it. You'll only cry your eyes out a couple of times.

4. The Walking Dead

So it's a show about zombies, right? The first episode does to you what a Walker does to its victim: makes you feel dead inside but also addicted, except you're addicted to a TV show, not human flesh. You get to see bad-ass characters mutilate zombies while also battling their own inner demons. And if that isn't enough to make you want to binge the ever-loving crap out of it, I just have two words for you: Daryl Dixon.

5. How I Met Your Mother

This is probably surprising for all of my readers, but if you're a fan of HIMYM, then you'll understand why it is the best AND the worst. It's not suspenseful like the Walking Dead or Lost; it's just plain stressful. You get so invested in Ted Moseby's love quest, and yet, at the end of every episode for practically nine seasons, you still don't figure out who the mother is! 208 episodes of torture! So why should you binge it? Because it's still, arguably, one of the best shows of the past decade. (And no, I'm not including Friends because nothing beats Friends.) Hold on to the fact that eventually you get closure, just maybe not closure you wanted the whole time.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
