Game of Thrones is back after being away from our hearts for a year+ and everyone in the world is losing their minds.

I am literally doing my absolute best to dodge spoilers and I’m really close to failing this task. Here’s a word of advice, avoid posting about any spoilers or you’ll be the most hated person there is. Here are some quick tips to avoid spoilers:
1- Don’t read texts from people you don’t trust (or trust).
2- Don’t view Snapchat and Instagram Stories.
3- Don’t read tweets from people you don’t trust (or trust).
4- It would be safer if you just turned off your phone.
5- Don’t check out or attempt to gawking any graffiti in the streets.
6- If you have douche bag Game of Thrones fans in your workplace, avoid talking to them until you watch the episode.
7- You could just take a sick leave day every Monday for the next seven weeks. Explosive diarrhea is a very legitimate reason.
8- Twitter has introduced a new feature where you can mute tweets that contain words you don’t want. Thus, add (Game of Thrones, Jon Snow, GOT, OMG, Season 7, Episode 1… etc.)
