4 New AND Good Shows On Netflix For Your Quarantine Entertainment

It's about two months into the coronavirus quarantine, and things are undeniably boring. In accordance with social distancing rules, opportunities for activities and entertainment are pretty limited. That show you've been wanting to finish for a while has now been completed, and the 'Trending' bar on the Netflix home screen is just a daunting task.

Having trouble figuring out what to watch next? These new releases on Netflix might just help you out.

"Never Have I Ever"

This new series follows high school sophomore and first-gen Indian-American Devi Vishwakumar, who, after a traumatic year involving her father's death and being in a wheelchair, is looking for a way to redeem her social status.

She embarks on a mission to win over the coolest guy in school and navigates the new challenges she faces in life along with her two best friends.

Produced by Mindy Kaling, filled with love triangles, humor, and accurate representations of teenhood and grief, this show is sure to please.

"Outer Banks"

It's the show that's sweeping the nation and has enough adventure and drama for you to live vicariously through the characters (though maybe only for a day, as you'll probably finish it in that time).

This popular show follows teenagers in the Outer Banks of North Carolina who embark on a treasure hunt to find the secret of who murdered protagonist John B's father -- oh, and a ton of gold. It's the perfect mix of a fun-filled summer and a dramatic mystery and is definitely worth the watch.

"The Half of It"

The new Netflix coming-of-age film adds a new twist to a typical romance plot. Shy Ellie Chu takes it upon herself to help a newly-befriended school jock to win over a girl who he likes.

The catch? Ellie likes her too. It's a beautiful story about friendship, love and sexuality, and racial identity, and is one that will make you feel something again. (Kidding, but not really.)

"Too Hot to Handle"

Fine, I'll admit it-- I watched it. This MA-rated reality TV show is an instant guilty pleasure, where, as these bachelors and bachelorettes mingle, they must compete for a $100k prize -- just for being celibate.

For many of the contestants, however, it proves to be a bit of a struggle. If you're looking for a mindless yet enjoyable watch, I would recommend.

We're all struggling in this isolation, and at times you may feel discouraged towards the future. But remember that this cannot go on forever, and we will eventually return to normalcy -- and, until then, you have plenty to watch on Netflix.

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

No one prepares you for the honeymoon phase wearing off

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

Let's start off with the simple fact that God made everyone differently. That statement could not be more evident. We try to embrace our differences and set ourselves apart from the rest of the world. What that doesn't prepare us for is when we yearn for a characteristic of someone else. For example, have you ever met someone who can experience this great heart ache and hardly shed a tear? This person just had their heart ripped out and they find a way to carry themselves through it with great composure. Well, not all of us have that desirable trait. Some of us wear our hearts on our wet sleeves. When a person has their heart on their sleeve, it can be viewed as a good thing, that the individual isn't shallow. However,

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.
