Netflix added some great movies and shows to the line up this past month. With the new year comes time to add more to the Netflix queue. In the past weeks, I've had a lot of time on my hands. Netflix was my go to time killer when I wasn't working or hanging out with my friends, but with my winter break coming to a sad end I decided to share my personal watch list to you.

1. "The End of the F***ing World"

An eight-episode British Television Comedy that showcases two troubled teens who decided to run away together. James, a 17-year-old psychopath, teams up with Alyssa the new mysterious girl in school. With plans to make her his first human kill, he agrees to be her boyfriend and run away to find her estranged father. Each episode running a half hour makes for an exciting 4-hour binge of this show.

2. "The First Time"

With off-screen couple Britt Robertson and Dylan O'Brien, this movie should be written down as a must see coming of age movie. Still being a freshman in college, this movie is still relevant to my life, showcasing the unpredictability of your first love. The two main characters stumble upon each other at a party and develop an intoxicating bond.

3. "Batman"

The 1989 classic take on the beloved character features Micheal Keaton as Batman and Jack Nicholson as the Joker. Everyone should add this Tim Burton classic now added to Netflix, Christian Bale has nothing on Keaton's performance of Batman. Not only can this cinematic gold be found on Netflix, but its equally amazing sequel with Danny Devito and Michelle Pfeiffer, "Batman Returns".

4. "What Happened to Monday"

This Netflix original although added in August, it took me a few months to uncover. Noomi Rapace, otherwise known as "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo," plays 7 identical twins in a near future where siblings are forbidden. Noomi gives the audience a spectacular performance with each character uniquely different and likable in their own ways. This movie is by far the biggest must-see on this list. With excellent writing and visual effects it's almost undetectable that Noomi is the only actor of the seven sisters.

5. "Heartthrob"

With Netflix's "Atypical" lead Keir Gilcrest and "Nashville" star Aubrey Peeples comes to an independent film that showcases a relationship between two uniquely different teens. This film documents love so strong it becomes Gilcrest's character, Henry, to reach a dangerous level of obsession. This is a film won't be everyone's favorite, but worth watching if you enjoy independent films with two fantastic actors.

6. "Stardust"

Stardust is simply one of my favorite films, but it's not well known. Based on a very dark novel comes a stellar cast of actors thrusting the audience into an epic fantasy world where fallen stars are used to win girls hearts and bring youth to witches. A film of comedy, romance, and intense action provides joy to any audience member.

7. "Atypical"

Although I watched this series when it came out in August it's a show that needs to be watched. As I've previously, mentioned Keir Gilcrest stars as Sam Gardner, an autistic teen who thinks it's time to find a girlfriend. This show is absolutely worth watching, showcasing the struggles the whole family experiences as they try to find normalcy with two teen children trying to figure out the ways of love. Being a big sister to a brother with autism, this was also a great show to watch to develop a better understanding of what autism is.

Something happened today that I never thought in a million years would happen. I opened up a drawer at my parents' house and I found my pink, 4th generation iPod Nano. I had not seen this thing since I graduated from the 8th grade, and the headphones have not left my ears since I pulled it out of that drawer. It's funny to me how music can take you back. You listen to a song and suddenly you're wearing a pair of gauchos, sitting on the bleachers in a gym somewhere, avoiding boys at all cost at your seventh grade dance. So if you were around in 2007 and feel like reminiscing, here is a playlist straight from the iPod of a middle schooler in 2007.

10 Places From Movies And TV You Can Visit In Real Life

It's like stepping into Hollywood!

I am constantly so enamored by the world of Hollywood and by going to visit places I have seen on screen. It's always such an unreal feeling to see where my favorite pieces of entertainment were shot. Here are 10 places from some of our favorite movies to see and visit in the real world!

The High School from "10 Things I Hate About You"

If you have ever wanted to dance on the same stairs as Heath Ledger or just stand in the same courtyard as Julia Stiles then you're in luck! Along the water in Tacoma, Washington, Stadium High School is located which was used both inside and out as the high school from one of the greatest teen movies of all time. This school is massive and so beautiful it's almost Hogwarts level stunning.

Pacific Coast Academy from  "Zoey 101"

Growing up I always dreamed about going to Pacific Coast Academy and being best friends with Jamie Lynn Spears and one of those things can (kinda) become a reality! Located in Malibu is a beautiful campus called Pepperdine University and it is the school they used to shoot scenes of Zoey and the gang at PCA. It is a christian based college and is prestigious in it's own right so if unlike me you are smart enough you can live out my dreams.

Central City Police Department from "The Flash"

Have you ever wanted to show up to Detective Joe West's place of work? Well head to the Vancouver City Hall in Vancouver, Canada and you will recognize your surroundings as the Central City Police Department! If you are lucky enough to show up on a filming day, you might even seen the man himself — Barry Allen.

Forks High School from The Twilight Saga

Personally, I am more invested in Bella and Jacob but for all my Team Edward ladies (and gentleman) you can visit the real-life school where Bella and Edward first met and their love blossomed into whatever obsessive weird thing it was. They also used the parking lot at this school to film the infamous scene where Edward saves Bella from getting crushed by a car. The school is called Kalama High School and is located in Kalama, Washington

Max And Dani's House from "Hocus Pocus"

Anyone with taste loves the movie Hocus Pocus — that's just facts! And I have some good news for fans of the film...you can visit the infamous Denison house! Located in none other than Salem, Massachusetts you will find this beautiful home where my favorite siblings once lived.

Silent Hill from "Silent Hill"

I will say before talking about this place that visiting it is EXTREMELY dangerous as just like in the movie the town as been burning from below for years and years. This small town is called Centralia and is located Pennsylvania and has a roaring population of about four people.

Hobbiton from "Lord Of The Rings"

I am personally not a fan of Lord of the Rings but I know a lot of people are so I wanted to include this super cool place on the list. If you ever find yourself in New Zealand you can visit Hobbinton from the movies and spend a day living like your favorite characters.

Platform 9 3/4 from the Harry Potter Series

Now this place will unfortunately be packed with muggles of course but you can find it at King's Cross Station in London! If you are anything like me and are obsessed with these magical movies this is a dream destination just don't run too hard at the wall if you're a muggle it will probably end in a concussion.

East High from the High School Musical Saga

Located in Salt Lake City Utah is the real life East High that was used in the filming of all three High School Musical movies. It is my absolute dream to attend this high school and walk the halls of the greatest high school of all time. They used both the outside and inside and the school so every inch of the school will remind you of these great teen movies.

Gus and Hazel's Bench from "The Fault in Our Stars" 

If you ever wanted to visit the site of this kiss between star crossed lovers you're in luck! Located along a canal in Amsterdam is a bench that is clearly marked by all the fault in our stars graffiti. Recreate this cute picture with your significant other and use a quote from the movie — then you'll just win in life.
