2 Adult Swim Cartoons To Ease Your Mind

The world is a scary place right now with all the political corruption and military threats. I personally know how difficult it can be to find distractions from how real and close to home those threats really are. However, with a little help from some mind-numbing television, it's easier than we tend to think. In no way am I saying to ignore the news or to not be informed about the world around us (it's especially important in case of something serious happening), but stressing out about things if they don't directly affect you quite yet never helps any situation. Be prepared, but take a mental break and check out Rick and Morty and Bob's Burgers.

1. "Rick and Morty"

Ahhh, there's nothing better than reverting back to your childhood self and watching Saturday morning cartoons. Except you can watch them whenever online. And they've grown up a lot. Like, A LOT. Rick and Morty, an Adult Swim series focused on Morty, a twelve-year-old boy who travels through space and other dimensions with his mad genius/scientist for a grandfather, Rick. With plenty of societal satire and sexual innuendos, the Rick and Morty's travels are sure to get at least a few chuckles out of you even if this isn't your style of humor. Despite the otherworldly problems that Rick and Morty face, their family also faces very real problems in marriage and in raising children correctly, but all in a very dysfunctional and humorous light. Kick your feet back, numb your mind, maybe lose a few brain cells, and travel to places such as Gazorpazorp and Rick's friend's insides for a fun and sometimes disturbing time.

2. "Bob's Burgers"

Bob just wants to make burgers at his burger joint that has been re-opened numerous times which can be seen in the show's title sequence. Set in New Jersey (figured most likely because of Linda's accent), this dysfunctional family of five knows how to get weird. There's the already mentioned Bob, who just wants to make his burgers, and his wife Linda, who is known to set up the Christmas tree the day after Halloween and name the raccoon who digs through the trash in the alley El Diablo. Their three children include Tina, a girl with awkward social skills and a notoriety for making strange noises, Louise, known for her pink hat and love for causing trouble, and Gene, the youngest, known for fighting with Louise and making strange remarks. Their dysfunctional family is known for causing mayhem together and getting into fights, but at the end of they day, they all come together in some strange way or another and wind up teaching an odd yet valuable lesson. Again, you might kill off a few brain cells, but at least you'll be laughing while doing it.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Urban Intellectuals

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.

"Arthur's Perfect Christmas" Is The Perfect Holiday Special, Move Over Charlie Brown

Arthur Read is here to deliver the real meaning of Christmas.


As the holiday season draws nearer, many of us find ourselves drawn to the same old Rankin-Bass Christmas specials and the perennial favorite, "A Charlie Brown Christmas." However, I would like to suggest an overlooked alternative, "Arthur's Perfect Christmas." It is a heartfelt, funny, and surprisingly inclusive Christmas special that deserves more recognition.

Reclaim Your Weekends From The 'Sunday Scaries' With 'Self-Love Sundays' Instead

Everyone needs a day to themselves sometimes.

Reclaim Your Weekends From The 'Sunday Scaries' With 'Self-Love Sundays' Instead
Olivia DeLucia

Laid back and taking it easy — sometimes that is the motto we all need after a busy week. Sunday scaries? Yes, they are valid – but you know what else is? A Sunday full of self-love. A lazy Sunday spent doing what you feel needs to be done to ease into the next week. Self-Love Sundays are a guilty pleasure that isn't only essential for our mind, and body, but are also a surprisingly proactive way to devote the upcoming week with a clear mindset.

So, what is a more suitable way to dedicate your week's end than a beautifully, connected playlist to accompany your face masks and journaling? Cheers, to a Self-Love Sunday (and a playlist intertwined with it to match). (Please note: "Sunday Morning" isn't included in this list, due to the obvious, but feel free to blast it anyway, we know you want to).

On Sunday Morning

Breaking Free

Sunset Girl

The sun rose and peeked through the sheer curtains. Rose’s alarm shrieked. The loud bells caused her phone to jump on the side table. It was time for her to get ready for church. Blindly reaching for her phone, she shut the alarm off and pulled at the covers providing her a cocoon of warmth and tossed them to the side. She swept her bare feet across the bed to touch the cool wooden floor.

Rose softly tiptoed to the corner of the bedroom to grab her clothes dangling on the arm of the bedroom chair. Scooping all of the items of her chosen outfit, she headed to the bathroom hoping that she wouldn’t drop anything.

Round, piercing blue eyes stared back at her in the bathroom mirror. Rose fingered the wrinkles forming around her eyes. So many of them bore signs of laughter and smiling. Slowly dropping her hands, she couldn’t remember the last time she laughed in her home with Tom. Shaking her head as if to erase the negative thoughts, she reached for her makeup bag and went through her regular routine.

Applying her favorite deep rose lipstick, Rose headed downstairs to make her coffee and bagel to take with her to church. The smell of dark-roast coffee swirled in the air as Rose sliced her cinnamon raisin bagel. Hearing the Keurig sputter with the fresh brew, Rose found the interruption of the stillness comforting. The toaster signaled that her bagel was done with a soft pop. It had a delicious golden brown color. Placing the bagel on the counter, she generously spread honey nut flavored cream cheese across both halves. Gathering her bible, notebook, and pens from the side table on the porch she stuffed them into her purse. Purse hanging on her right shoulder she juggled her coffee and bagel in both of her hands as she headed to the garage.
