Sometimes You Have to Say Goodbye

When I first started watching Netflix, I was amazed by how much content was available for me to view. It wasn’t until a month later that I noticed that a series that I had been wanting to watch had disappeared unexpectedly. I searched everywhere, but couldn’t find it. I didn’t know that the series had been removed from Netflix, along with many other movies and shows. This was the first time I found out that not everything on Netflix was permanent. Now I always look on to find out when new shows and movies are being added, and when old one are going to be taken away.

From viewing the website, I found out that a movie that had been added a year ago was going to be taken away in the following month. I had been wanting to watch this movie since the day it was released in theaters, but I wasn’t willing to pay the high ticket prices to see it. I prefer to watch movies from the comfort of my own home. When it came to Netflix, I was ecstatic, but I could never find the time to sit down and watch the movie, because of my busy schedule.

I planned out one day in the month on my calendar to watch the movie before it was taken from Netflix for good. I scheduled everything else before or after that day so I wouldn’t have any distractions that would prevent me from seeing the movie. I bought a big jar of popcorn kernels and popped them in my popcorn popper, buttered it up, and sat down on the couch to watch the movie in front of my big screen television. The movie was even better than I expected it to be. I wish it didn’t have to go, but nothing lasts forever.
