In March, I would never have guessed that we would still be dealing with this pandemic in November. Maybe my science-fiction loving brain thinks that it will work out like it does on the big screen. Movies solve pandemics in an hour and a half, right? I know that is totally unrealistic, but wishful thinking.
Working and virtual learning has fostered a new hobby for me. I haven’t decided if it’s healthy or not yet. Since I love it so much, I won’t dive too deep into finding the answer for that question.
Hello, I’m Ronisha, and I have a new love for binge watching.
Sure, I have had Netflix and Hulu accounts for years. I clipped the cable cord long ago. As a single mother working full-time, I guess I never found time to just sit and watch TV for hours. I know, I know, I need to limit screen time. But what’s a girl to do when the show is just that good? Or maybe I should say that interesting? Some of the shows have been complete trash, but once I’m dedicated I have to see it through.
I didn’t mean to become a lover of binge watching. It was an accident.
Once my daughter got the hang of doing her virtual schooling on her own, I needed background noise. I turned on the television and started a show. The rest is history!
So, what shows am I binging right now?
I’ll give you my Netflix list but please don’t judge me too harshly! The first three on this list came as a recommendation when I needed something to take my mind off of other things. They are continuations and some of the seasons have over 20 episodes!

I’ve also adapted to making a snack when I’m able to curl up on the couch to binge these shows. My go to has been charcuterie plates (because a board would be ridiculous, right?). I am also a fan of popcorn. I found this neat little silicone microwave popcorn popper that makes it so easy to enjoy popcorn any way you like it (butter, seasonings, etc.) – my favorite is a little popcorn oil and a sprinkling of garlic and herb Old Bay.
