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!

8 Reasons Why My Dad Is the Most Important Man In My Life

Forever my number one guy.

Growing up, there's been one consistent man I can always count on, my father. In any aspect of my life, my dad has always been there, showing me unconditional love and respect every day. No matter what, I know that my dad will always be the most important man in my life for many reasons.

1. He has always been there.

Literally. From the day I was born until today, I have never not been able to count on my dad to be there for me, uplift me and be the best dad he can be.

2. He learned to adapt and suffer through girly trends to make me happy.

I'm sure when my dad was younger and pictured his future, he didn't think about the Barbie pretend pageants, dressing up as a princess, perfecting my pigtails and enduring other countless girly events. My dad never turned me down when I wanted to play a game, no matter what and was always willing to help me pick out cute outfits and do my hair before preschool.

3. He sends the cutest texts.

Random text messages since I have gotten my own cell phone have always come my way from my dad. Those randoms "I love you so much" and "I am so proud of you" never fail to make me smile, and I can always count on my dad for an adorable text message when I'm feeling down.

4. He taught me how to be brave.

When I needed to learn how to swim, he threw me in the pool. When I needed to learn how to ride a bike, he went alongside me and made sure I didn't fall too badly. When I needed to learn how to drive, he was there next to me, making sure I didn't crash.

5. He encourages me to best the best I can be.

My dad sees the best in me, no matter how much I fail. He's always there to support me and turn my failures into successes. He can sit on the phone with me for hours, talking future career stuff and listening to me lay out my future plans and goals. He wants the absolute best for me, and no is never an option, he is always willing to do whatever it takes to get me where I need to be.

6. He gets sentimental way too often, but it's cute.

Whether you're sitting down at the kitchen table, reminiscing about your childhood, or that one song comes on that your dad insists you will dance to together on your wedding day, your dad's emotions often come out in the cutest possible way, forever reminding you how loved you are.


7. He supports you, emotionally and financially.

Need to vent about a guy in your life that isn't treating you well? My dad is there. Need some extra cash to help fund spring break? He's there for that, too.

8. He shows me how I should be treated.

Yes, my dad treats me like a princess, and I don't expect every guy I meet to wait on me hand and foot, but I do expect respect, and that's exactly what my dad showed I deserve. From the way he loves, admires, and respects me, he shows me that there are guys out there who will one day come along and treat me like that. My dad always advises me to not put up with less than I deserve and assures me that the right guy will come along one day.

For these reasons and more, my dad will forever be my No. 1 man. I love you!

From One Nerd To Another

My contemplation of the complexities between different forms of art.

Aside from reading Guy Harrison's guide to eliminating scientific ignorance called, "At Least Know This: Essential Science to Enhance Your Life" and, "The Breakthrough: Immunotherapy and the Race to Cure Cancer" by Charles Graeber, an informative and emotional historical account explaining the potential use of our own immune systems to cure cancer, I read articles and worked on my own writing in order to keep learning while enjoying my winter break back in December. I also took a trip to the Guggenheim Museum.


I wish I was artistic. Generally, I walk through museums in awe of what artists can do. The colors and dainty details simultaneously inspire me and remind me of what little talent I posses holding a paintbrush. Walking through the Guggenheim was no exception. Most of the pieces are done by Hilma af Klint, a 20th-century Swedish artist expressing her beliefs and curiosity about the universe through her abstract painting. I was mostly at the exhibit to appease my mom (a K - 8th-grade art teacher), but as we continued to look at each piece and read their descriptions, I slowly began to appreciate them and their underlying meanings.


I like writing that integrates symbols, double meanings, and metaphors into its message because I think that the best works of art are the ones that have to be sought after. If the writer simply tells you exactly what they were thinking and how their words should be interpreted, there's no room for imagination. An unpopular opinion in high school was that reading "The Scarlet Letter" by Nathaniel Hawthorne was fun. Well, I thought it was. At the beginning of the book, there's a scene where Hawthorne describes a wild rosebush that sits just outside of the community prison. As you read, you are free to decide whether it's an image of morality, the last taste of freedom and natural beauty for criminals walking toward their doom, or a symbol of the relationship between the Puritans with their prison-like expectations and Hester, the main character, who blossoms into herself throughout the novel. Whichever one you think it is doesn't matter, the point is that the rosebush can symbolize whatever you want it to. It's the same with paintings - they can be interpreted however you want them to be.


As we walked through the building, its spiral design leading us further and further upwards, we were able to catch glimpses of af Klint's life through the strokes of her brush. My favorite of her collections was one titled, "Evolution." As a science nerd myself, the idea that the story of our existence was being incorporated into art intrigued me. One piece represented the eras of geological time through her use of spirals and snails colored abstractly. She clued you into the story she was telling by using different colors and tones to represent different periods. It felt like reading "The Scarlet Letter" and my biology textbook at the same time. Maybe that sounds like the worst thing ever, but to me it was heaven. Art isn't just art and science isn't just science. Aspects of different studies coexist and join together to form something amazing that will speak to even the most untalented patron walking through the museum halls.
