After spending about two years trying to convince myself that I could live without Netflix, I finally bit the bullet and rejoined the Netflix and chill crew. Although, let’s be honest, there has been way too many great shows and movies that I’ve missed, there hasn’t been time to chill.

Happy 2018 my beautiful internet friends!

For a second, I almost didn’t recognize you. As you know, new year, new you.
