My Monday Musts

Happy Monday, readers!

Hope you’ve all had an amazing week! I’ve been super professional this past week – I ordered my books for next semester, had a three hour meeting planning out fall semester social events for my sorority, put myself on a budget, decided how I want to redo my bedroom and ordered the new bedding (be on the lookout for a post once my room is complete!), and of course, working at my summer job.

All of this professionalism didn’t leave for much time anything else this week. So whenever I was free I spent my entire time vegging out and binge watching Netflix, which is why there is only one Monday Must this week…..

“Orange is the New Black”

In the GroupMe group message between me and all my college best friends, they all kept saying how excited they were when the new season of “Orange is the New Black” premiered on Netflix. Then, my twitter feed was filled with tweets about OITNB from almost everyone I could think of. Even customers at work were asking me if I watched the Netflix original show. I had finished Greek (I still can’t believe that I finished it all), so, I decided to jump on the bandwagon and start the show. Next thing I knew, I was staying up until I would fall asleep on my laptop binge watching the show! I completed the first season in about 2.5 days. I was watching bits and pieces of episodes on my lunch break and finding any other time possible to watch. It’s safe to say that I am now completely obsessed, as I’m now halfway done with season two.

The show starts out with  upper-middle class New York City woman, Piper, being sent to an all female prison for a crime she committed ten years ago. The show’s plot then continues around Piper’s stay at Litchfield Prison, while she learns the ropes of the prison and the prison hierarchy.  The show introduces viewers to the other inmates and through flashbacks shows more about each character’s past. These flashbacks make for amazing character development – probably the best character development I have ever seen on a show.


Even though that is it for this week’s Monday Musts, I just wanted to remind you to about my partnership with The Collegiate Standard. Use coupon code SAMI10 to get 10% off your purchase of fabulous sorority and fraternity jewelry! Plus, money from your purchase will go towards whatever Greek organization you made your purchase for. You can read more about it in a previous blog post.

Enjoy the rest of your week, readers! Keep sparkling!

    • Hi Kelly,

      I wish I could be smart and ration it out. I get so obsessed that I just keep clicking onto the next episode! I’m already halfway done with season two and I started it Sunday night – whoops!


    • Hi Sarah,

      I completely agree! I wish they could do something like how a TV show episode premieres each week, they premiere an episode each week. I’m halfway done with the second season. I can’t stop watching it, but I know as soon as I’m done I’ll put myself into the depression you get when you finish a show on Netflix. lol


    • I only have two episodes left in the season, so I know as soon as I finish I’ll be doing the exact same thing.

      I’m just too obsessed to try and ration out my time.

      Thanks for stopping by my blog!
