Netflix During The Winter

So you are home for the holidays. Either you just finished finals and you are back home for winter break're just home, whatever. For those of you are in college, coming home for breaks is a huge emotional roller coaster. You are excited to take a break from classes, see all your friends and family and just relax! But then're back home living with your family. You are back in that rut you were stuck in during senior year of high school where you were interrogated every time the thought of you exiting the house was brought up--even if you were going to check the mail outside.
And even worse, if you go to school in a big city, or even any college town, and you come back to your podunk hometown, you will be dying of boredom before Christmas Eve. Even if you are able to leave the house, you cannot avoid running into those annoying kids from your past. Like the "popular" kid who obviously peaked in high school and now busses tables at the local wine bar. There goes the chance of you using your fake ID at happy hour. And it's fucking winter. If you live in a normal climate zone, it is too cold to even do anything. There is no question of partaking in any outdoor activities--for those of you who still do that?
Now what do you do? You are basically a prison within your household, any escape from the prison is met with extreme awkwardness and it is too cold and miserable outside. Crawl back into your bed, open your computer, and open yourself to Netflix. Unless you somehow found a job for the winter, you will have enough "prison" time to finish all eight seasons of Grey's Anatomy within the month.
