It all starts when you discover a new show. You've seen the first few episodes and are hooked to the point where you've diligently watched every week (or binge-watched all it's seasons on Netflix). But then, it happens. You've watched the last available episode. After a few moments of denial, you look up when the next new episode is set to premiere. Then, suddenly, your worst nightmares are confirmed as you see the words 'Next Summer (Or Fall/Winter/Spring) 20xx.' Then it dawns on you that you've got to go on without new episodes for at least another three months. What will you do? No worries, I've got you covered:


Re-watch the entire series again

This is especially true for shows with a deep plot, be it mystery, political or drama. Sometimes, when we watch a show the first time through, in the awe of watching such an amazing show, we miss some important clues to future plot development or hints to what is really going on. Going through the show, no longer wondering what happens, can give it new perspective and get you to appreciate the show that much more.

Look up fan-made theories

After re-watching the series, you may have developed some of your own theories on what will happen. Naturally, you're curious about who else may be sharing these thoughts. As a result, you can look up forums where others are discussing what has happened with your show/and or what this could possibly mean for the next season. You can also bond on how hard this waiting period will be for you all.

Read the books

This one only applies to TV shows that were based off a book series (ex. "Game of Thrones", "Pretty Little Liars", the "Vampire Diaries", ect.) As is the same with movies, many of the on-screen adaptations stray from the original novels, but often times, they do stick close to the original plat. Kind of as a way to continue getting more from the series you love, try reading where it all started!

Try a new TV show

When you've gotten your fill of your favorite TV show, try starting up a new series! You never know how much you can enjoy it! For all you know, you could end up loving this series just as much. Plus, you may get yourself a a new favorite to watch between seasons of the show you love the most.

Watch the new season as soon as it premieres (Go Back to 1.)

At this point, your shows come back and is ready to take over your life for the next few months until it leaves you again for another few months. After watching everything until the last filmed episode, go back to tip 1 and repeat as followed. As you can tell, this has become a cycle and will continue (unless your show get's canceled or ends that is).


There you have it! Those were a few of my tips on what to do while you wait for the next season of your favorite show to premier. Although it isn't the end of the world, it can sure feel like it when you think about how long it will be until that next episode. Hopefully, these tips will help you cope. Happy watching!

10 Reasons Your Big Sister Is The Best Person In Your Life

"There is no better friend than a sister, and there is no better sister than you."

As much as I hate to admit it, my big sister might be sort-of, slightly, cooler than I am.

Sometimes. She's the one I call when I can't call mom and the only one in the family who can properly handle my attitude. Big sisters are the people you'd choose if they weren't already family, and here's why.

1. She is your first and truest friend.

Big sisters are (literally) there from day one. They see every dirty diaper, every bad haircut, and every melodramatic breakup. They deal with every bad day and drama queen attitude and still love you in the most unconditional way.

2. Her closet is your closet.

For some reason, her clothes always look better on you. Funny how that works, huh? With a big sister comes a big closet, and who doesn't love having a double wardrobe? I'd also like to take this opportunity to apologize for the clothes I will never give back (but I'm not really that sorry).

3. She knows what it's like to deal with your parents.

Anything you could possibly be going through, they went through it first. It's kind of like having an instruction manual or a key to the future. Either way, it's always nice to have someone who will always understand the struggle.

4. There are no boundaries.

Wanna dance around in your underwear all day? Cool. Life talks while she's on the toilet? Also cool. There's no awkward moments or changing in the bathroom with the door locked. There's just the kind of freedom that only comes with siblings.

5. Thanks to her, you know about all of the cool movies/music/fashion trends from years back.

Thanks to my sister, I have every Too $hort and Ludacris song you could ever think of downloaded on my phone. I've seen every cheesy '90s movie, and when a fad from 10 years ago comes back in, I already have the hookup.

6. She tells you like it is.

We all have those friends who tend to sugarcoat everything. Yeah, sisters don't do that. She's the first person to tell me when I'm making a terrible decision and that I really shouldn't triple text that boy again. She keeps it real with me and deals with my attitude, and that's why she's the best.

7. Her home is always open.

Sometimes you just need to get away from life and binge watch Netflix, and sometimes you need all of that plus your sister. She always has her door open when you're two seconds away from losing your mind, and she also has good takeout and a dog.

8. She knows what you're capable of.

My sister knows exactly who I am and what I can do. She knows when I'm not doing my best, and when I need to be set straight. She's always there to remind me who I am and what I'm capable of accomplishing. She's always been my biggest fan.

9. She's a lot cheaper than therapy.

For some reason, my sister always knows just what to say. Even if I don't see it at the time, she's usually right (don't tell her I said that). Big sisters are like wizards, somehow they always magically make you feel like life's gonna turn out alright in the end. If she wasn't already awesome at everything else, I'd suggest she be a therapist.

10. She will always be your go-to gal.

No matter the situation, she will always be by your side. There is nothing you could say or do to make a big sister leave, and that's why they're the best. Whether it's a speeding ticket, a mean girl or you just need to laugh, big sisters are always going to be there to lift your spirits and set you straight.

I couldn't make it without ya sis, I'm sorry for ratting you out on Thanksgiving that one time, and for running away at the zoo. Thanks for taking me to see Aaron Carter even though he's way too old to still be singing "I want Candy," and thank you always for being the best role model, sister and friend I could ask for.

Poetry On The Odyssey: It's a Girl

An ode to the little girl raised to be insecure.

185
views

They raise little girls to be insecure

Little girls grow to be big girls

People always ask big girls why they're so insecure

Big girls aren't quite sure

Day after day the big girl can't keep up

She's exhausted

Her soul feels worn

The big girl learns to grow hard

In a way, she's a bit stronger

People call her a bitch

Bitch

What is that?

How can she let that affect her

It's simply the only way to be her

She mourns that little girl

Hoping that one day

She'll be strong
