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.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
