Join real-life sisters Sydnee McElroy (Sawbones), Teylor Smirl, and Rileigh Smirl as they help bridge the gap between the teenagers of yesterday and today. "How do you party?" "What do I do with all this hair?" Still Buffering has the answer."

Still Buffering: How to Fan

Even though the beginning of this week's episode sounds like we've started a new Riverdale fan/hatecast, I promise we haven't, we just get really passionate about Archie and teen dramas. Since we needed to discuss the legitimacy of this new show, we thought it would be fitting to discuss the idea of fan-ing out over celebrities, and find out that all three of us have done some somewhat creepy-ish things over the years...

Still Buffering: How to Birth Control

In this week's very timely episode, the sisters discuss a somewhat more sensitive topic (and one that makes Rileigh very uncomfortable at times), birth control. Since birth control is a phrase most all teenagers have had to hear or even experience at some point in their lives, the sisters thought this discussion would shed some light on the stigma and social acceptability of birth control throughout the years. Also, there's a lot of butt talk this episode so...there's that.

Still Buffering: How to Snow Days

As the cold, dreary winter season continues to make life a little bit worse for everybody, the sisters reflect on one of the only enjoyable factors of winter during school, snow days. From the trio's combined hatred of winter sports, to the pure joy they all felt when waking up to find school had been cancelled, to learning some surprising slang terms for snow, the sisters have covered all the bases this week and hope you can relate to at least one of those feelings. (Also, it's been one year since Still Buffering began! Thank you all for your continued support and love.)

We aren't really sure what happened this week, we planned on talking about jobs and somehow the majority of this episode is about troll butts, Batman pizza, and Sydnee's new boat life. So...we tried to stay on topic and we hope you gain at least a bit of insight about teen jobs (but that might be hard to do.)

Happy New Year from the Smirl sisters to you! It's finally 2017, and we're all happy that 2016 is over. But, is New Year's even really a holiday when you're a teen, and how do teens actually celebrate it when they can't party and none of them have the "sacrificial parent?" I guess they could have musical theatre nerd parties like Sydnee did (but they sound kinda lame.) Find out the answers to all of these and more on this week's episode, and join us in ringing in the New Year!

As the holiday season comes to a close, it's time to think about what the most important thing is to do after you receive all of those lovely, thoughtful holiday presents...return them all. This week the sisters try to determine a set of rules for returning and re-gifting presents from the holidays and realize that Claire's is a never-ending, sacrificial pit of food-shaped earrings and fake glasses.

As the testing season begins for most high schoolers (including Rileigh), the sisters remember some of their favorite memories of school tests and college-entry tests and try to give their youngest and most stressed out sister some advice. Which seems to include a lot of talk about...power donuts?

Still Buffering: How (Not) to Bully

In another special late-night edition of the show, the sisters tackle a more serious topic: bullying. All three have many stories to share, many of them about bullies that were surprisingly thorough and dedicated to their bits. But don't worry, the sisters have moved on from those terrible middle school days and are ready to goof about them and hopefully help some of you who may be dealing with some bullies right now.
