Confessions of a Vampire Diaries Addict

Hello, my name is Julie and I'm addicted to the Vampire Diaries. You may remember my blog post from a little over two months ago stating that I first started watching the show, but it's gone way past just liking the show...

To a full blown addiction. I guess you could say I've discovered the joys of binge watching. Just when I thought I was going to delete my Netflix, too, I watched Vampire Diaries. The minute I watched it, I knew I was going to like it, but I didn't know it would take me less then two months to complete almost all 5 seasons.

But when you have Netflix and when they decide to throw in those mini cliffhangers almost every episode, it's hard not to get hooked in order to find out what happens next. However, since I am in season 5, I'm trying really hard to slow it down a bit. When you are addicted to something, that's easier said then done. 

Especially with what's going on right now. My favorite character has lost his memory. Yes, I'm Team Stefan, have been since day one. Then there's the whole trying to bring Bonnie back to life thing. Seriously, does the whole staying dead thing, not stick with these people? Jeremy has died who knows how many times. Matt is starting to rank up there pretty high and let's not forget Alaric who died so many times he started to form an alter ego that went on killing binges.

Ok, just by saying that, it doesn't sound like a very friendly show, huh? So, why do I like it so much? Well, I don't really know, actually. Maybe it's because it's so different from anything I've ever watched. For those who keep up with my blog, you know I'm right. Or maybe it's because I am loving the whole drama of Mystic Falls. This seemingly pleasant town that got turned upside down and revealed all its secrets when Stefan decided to move back to town. 

Or maybe it's just one of those mysteries that I can't answer as to why I've gotten so addicted to a show I tried to stay away from as along as possible. Yes, I didn't want anything to do with the show. Mainly because I thought it was a knock off of Twilight. But it's not and sorry Twilight, I do love you, but Vampire Diaries is way better. 

So, that's my confession. Do I regret ever watching the first episode and falling in love with the show? No, no, I don't.
