5 Shows We Used To Watch On Cable TV That Are Now Available Online
Do you still remember the times when you’d get home from school and turn on the TV to watch shows through your family’s cable subscription? Good times, good times. Those were the days when online streaming services weren’t a thing yet. Now though, things have leveled up. With proper internet connection, we can now watch unli shows by streaming them—even on our phones.
Some of the shows we used to catch on cable TV at certain timeslots are now made available on various streaming sites like Viu or Netflix. If you’re up for a walk down memory lane, put these shows on again. It’ll be just like the good, old days—except now, you can watch it any time, anywhere (Hopefully, you’re staying put at home for the time being though!).
Glee was really popular among students for many reasons. It’s one of the few shows back then that made the uncool kids cool and showed almost true-to-life experiences of actual high school kids. The recreations and covers of songs are a huge plus, too.
Stream it on: Netflix
Back when vampires were a huge thing in pop culture thanks to the Twilight movies, the TV series version of attractive blood-suckers that caught people’s attention was Vampire Diaries. At some point, you were probably switching between Team Damon and Team Stefan, weren’t you?
Stream it on: Netflix
This was one of the shows that first taught us about girl power. A trio of high school girls leading double lives as spies, casually owning laser lipsticks, and saving the world in style—we wish we were like them! It didn’t matter if you were the brainy one, the tomboy one, or the maarte one, these fictional ladies taught a generation that they can be exactly who they are and still kick ass.

Avatar: The Last Airbender
Long ago, the four nations lived together in harmony. Then, everything changed when the Fire Nation attacked… You probably read that in Katara’s voice, didn’t you? Then you probably have the rest of the lines memorized, too. LOL.
Stream it on: Netflix
Plenty of K-drama enthusiasts probably fell into the K-drama black hole through the Korean dramas being aired on cable TV. The Heirs is one such show, which featured the love story of a chaebol son and a hardworking student, played by Lee Min Ho and Park Shin Hye, respectively.
Stream it on: Viu (titled The Heirs), Netflix (titled Inheritors)

Here's my two cents on the letter, call for help of our medical frontliners. Let’s hear what our healthcare workers have to say and try to understand it from their point of view, they have every right to criticize how this medical crisis is being handled by the government... after all, they're the experts on the topic. Though we see the frontliners as heroes in our eyes, the lack of concrete plans from the government to combat COVID-19 makes them feel otherwise. Healthcare workers are already starting to voice out how they feel as though they are being sacrificed as they follow through their sworn oath. We wouldn’t send our soldiers to war unarmed and without a concrete plan; the same should be expected for our frontliners. How can we send them to battle without proper gear? Why is there still a debate on whether mass testing is needed or not when the experts on that field continuously insist its importance in flattening the curve? Why is this still not the priority when it’s literally our lives on the line? It’s not like the medical experts demanding for mass testing are just stating their opinion about this mindlessly, they studied this laboriously. Make them feel heard so that all the sacrifices that they’re doing and all the deaths of their colleagues are not in vain. More than the words of praises, what our medical professionals truly need right now is TANGIBLE support. Here is to hoping they get that soon. @errren.22

Here is a photograph taken yesterday from the photo shoot I did in our house. ? I really love dressing up and being dolled up, it makes me feel great and confident of who I am ?
I was actually hesitant to post these pictures of mine. My sister eveb asked me to change my Facebook Profile Picture and it took me hours to decide if I should. But, I realized that this is me, the real me. I should be confident of my body and of who I really am.
At the end of the day, I dress up not for other people but for myself ? To all the ladies out there and even gentlemen who are taking a second to think if they should post their pictures, worried about what will others say their body, remember that we just need to be just ourselves. Be confident and let us support each other ? Let us be friends! IG: @romynaaaaaaa_
They say time heals all wounds, but it has been ages - is heartbreak exempted?
I have forgotten when was the last time we shared a smile - the last time when I saw the glow in your eyes and the last time when you whispered an I love you to me. I have forgotten when, but here I am - writing to you again.
I do not know if you will read this or you will just add this one to my proses and poems that you left unread, but you see, I am still hoping. I am mailing the pain of us to the gods out there - hoping they can take the pain away. I should have gotten over you, but instead of forgetting and accepting our ending, I am writing about us in tissue sheets, carving about us on trees, telling about us on the back of my journals, hoping that a thousand or a million write ups about us, can make me forget about what happened.
I am writing, waiting for the point where I can no longer write anymore, for I have none to tell - but when? I have nothing in me anymore, but the memories of us - and no matter how hard I try put those to its own grave, the memories grow back like lilies in the swamp - painful and beautiful at the same time.
No matter how hard I try to silence those and put it at the back of my mind, those ring back, playing like the favorite song we used to listen. They say heartbreaks turn into poetry and that is what happening to us - but poetry should be dulcet and dreamy, why does ours sound like pain and agony? They say time heals all wounds, but it has been ages - is heartbreak exempted? Darling, I guess not.
Bored this quarantine? Ever heard of the #chloetingchallenge? Since you got a lot of time in your hands, why not try Chloe Ting's workouts for free? YES! You heard it right. For FREE!
Aside from the fact that you can do it comfortably inside of your home, it doesn't require any equipment. You just need to be present! If you don't have any yoga mat, you can use a towel instead. For weights you can just use your body weight or water bottles.
Don't worry, based on my personal experience (and for others who already tried it) it's quiet effective. Tho the 2 Weeks Shred is a bit repetitive but some of the programs are not. If you are already curious about Chloe's programs, here's the link: https://www.chloeting.com/program/
