Between Homework And Exams, Find Time To Watch These 10 Shows On Netflix

I am not a huge fan of drama, but the mystery component of "Riverdale" has me hooked.


Watching shows or movies on Netflix is one of my favorite pastimes. If you don't watch any show on Netflix, I really don't know what to say. I decided to compile a list of my top 10 favorite things I like to watch on Netflix, and that I think everyone should watch at least once in their lifetime.

1. "Friends"

This show is a CLASSIC. It isn't very hooking so you don't have to worry about getting addicted. The episodes are only 20 minutes long and they are sure to bring up your mood. I love to watch "Friends" when I am getting too stressed with school work and need a small break. I recommend you do too.

2. "The Office"

To be honest, I JUST started watching "The Office." I am not a huge fan and I definitely like "Friends" better but my friends tell me the show gets better and it is also a very funny, light show.

3. "Riverdale"

I made the mistake of starting to watch this show thinking that it was like the Archie comics series. I was wrong. The only similarity between Archie comics and "Riverdale" is the name and looks of the character. That and they both are very good pieces of entertainment. Unlike Archie comics, "Riverdale" is not the light comic relief: it is filled with drama and mystery. I am not a huge fan of drama, but the mystery component of this show has me hooked. Fair warning though, the start of season 2 is kind of boring. It gets better throughout season 2, so keep watching!

4. "Sherlock"

If you haven't watched "Sherlock," you are missing out. "Sherlock" is yet another classic. Each season, each episode just keeps getting better and better. Each episode will blow your mind.

5. "The People vs OJ Simpson"

I rarely ever watch crime/law shows (though there are many on my to-watch list). However my friend forced me to start watching this, and I can confidently say that I do not regret it. This is one of the most hooking and interesting non-fiction show. Even if you aren't a big crime/law show fan, this one is a MUST WATCH. The event this show/documentary is based on still amazes me.

6. "Hasan Minhaj Homecoming King"

Hasan Minhaj is my FAVORITE comedian. He is hilarious and finds a way to beautifully insert social commentary in his skits. His Netflix show "Homecoming King" is HILARIOUS and really accurately portrays the life of an Indian American. Everyone should watch this at least once.

7. "Stranger Things"

I liked the first season better than the second, but I still love the show. I think "Stranger Things" is one of the few shows that are very popular shows that is not overhyped. This show has its supernatural element without being cringey. It is an amazing show and if you haven't watched it yet, drop everything you are doing and go watch it right now.

8. "Jane The Virgin"

When I initially watched the first episode I thought that it was very "meh." Not a show I would like. But, as I kept watching, I fell in love with the show. I recommend you watch!! The show keeps getting better each season. This show is a relatively lighter show which has humor, drama, and suspense. A mix of each genre in this show. The acting is amazing and each character is so loveable.

9. "Grey's Anatomy"

If you didn't already know, "Grey's Anatomy" is one of my FAVORITE shows. This show is filled with drama, romance, and sometimes even humor. The only downside to this show is that it can get VERY addicted but also VERY dramatic (more than I would like at the time). When it gets too dramatic I usually just take a break and watch "Friends" or "The Office" or "Jane The Virgin." Despite the at-times-excessive drama, I still highly recommend watching this show. It will take you on one big roller coaster.

10. "Coco"

This movie is honestly the cutest family movie ever. It will make you laugh at some parts of the movie and cry at other parts. I have watched this movie three times and I can definitely watch it one more time.

Realistically, there are SO MANY MORE movies and TV shows you can watch. But these were just the top 10 that I thought were must watches. Have fun watching!!

13 Father's Day Shirts Under $30 To Gift The Dad Wearing The Same Two Every Day In Quarantine

You've been begging him to change it up, and now he won't have a choice.

Let's be honest: most of our dads are wearing the same shirts today that they probably wore while changing our diapers and holding our hands as we learned to walk. Sure, we love them for it. But whether you're quarantined with him wearing the same two shirts on rotation every week, or every time you FaceTime him, you know what he'll be wearing before he answers the phone, he needs to add some new items to his wardrobe rotation.

And you know dads — they'll feel guilted into using practically anything you were to give them. But these shirts are sure-fire ways to get him to switch up his wardrobe, and he'll be more than excited to wear each and every one of them. Plus, most of them are under twenty dollars, so no harm in dropping more than a couple in to your cart and letting Dad have his pick of his favorites.

I Sat Down (Virtually) With Hollis Tuttle To Talk About Coronavirus's Impact On The Wellness Industry

Just because coronavirus has greatly impacted the wellness industry doesn't mean wellness stops.

If you're anything like me, your weekly fitness classes are a huge part of your routine. They keep me fit, healthy, and sane. Honestly, these classes help my mental health stay in tip-top shape just as much as they help my physical health.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, gyms and fitness studios are facing temporary closure. Yes, this means my personal routine is thrown a curveball, but this also means the wellness industry is one of many that is looking at unemployment and hardship. Do I miss my Monday spin class? Of course. But do the wellness professionals whose worlds were flipped upside down have a lot more to overcome than a slight change of routine? Absolutely. Thankfully, if anyone can prove the ultimate flexibility, it's the wellness industry.

My Boyfriend Has Changed Since Quarantine Began, And I Don't Know What To Do

"All he says is 'I love you,' which is great and all but OMG I can't get anything else out of him."

Each week Swoonie B will give her advice on anonymous topics submitted by readers. Want to Ask Swoonie B something related to dating and relationships? Fill out this form here — it's anonymous.

Dear Swoonie B,

My boyfriend and I have been dating for almost a year, which has been the best year of my life (as far as i know). Well we go to different schools and are both very involved in sports and school activities which makes it hard to see each other. During this quarantine it is especially hard. Since we haven't seen each other in over a week things are kind of tense. He won't really talk to me much and I always check in on him to make sure he is doing well and to just see how he is, ya know being a girlfriend. Well apparently that is driving him crazy and I don't understand how. I'm not being controling or clingy, i'm just checking in on him. While this is happening, I also have noticed how he just doesn't really care anymore. I'll leave him paragraphs of sweet love letters to wake up to and I encourage him throughout his day but I just don't get it in return. I love him with all of me and I obviously care about him a lot. Also, I've compared how he talked to me before all of this has happened. He was so sweet and caring, texting me a lot and telling me he loves me and just making sure everything is OK but he doesn't do that anymore. All he says is "I love you," which is great and all but OMG I can't get anything else out of him. He is a little stressed at home with trying to find another job to pay for his car, constantly having to do things for his mom, being responsible for his siblings, and managing school. I know thats a lot but im doing a lot too right now and going through a lot of the same stuff he is but It seems to me he just does not care and i don't know what to do. Please help me or give me some advice on what to say, what not to say, what to do, what not to do. Anything at this point will help. Thank you!

If I had a dollar for every time I heard "these are unprecedented times," I'd be rich. But that's because it's true!

Tower 28

On paper, Amy Liu appears to be one of the most intimidating women in the beauty business. Not only was she the person to build Smashbox Cosmetics into what it is today, she went on to lead luxury, high-end brands like Kate Somerville and Josie Maran — just to name a few.

But sitting down to meet Liu for the first time in an underground New York bar over a year ago felt like meeting a friend I'd known since childhood. As she walked into the bar in a chic red dress, it was impossible not to feel her immediate warm presence. When she talks about her history as an entrepreneur (and truly, at heart, she always was one), you don't get the sense that she's selling you anything, though with her impeccable taste, I'd use anything that had her glowing review attached to it.

Sixth grade was the year that you were allowed to participate in a school sport. This was what my friends and I had all been waiting for since we started middle school. I had already made the cheer team with my friends, but I had to wait to start that in the winter since we cheered for basketball. I really wanted to have some sort of activity in the fall, but I did not know what to do. Somehow, I decided to run cross country. Not really sure how I decided on a sport where it was quite literally just running. A few of my friends were doing it as well, so I knew it was going to be fun.

Working Out Every Day During Quarantine Helps Me Feel A Sense Of Control

Physical activity helps my mental health in a world that feels uncertain.

Before the pandemic, I exercised a handful of times a week at best. In quarantine, I've been exercising every single day. I don't want this article to be another spiel about how exercise "changed my life," and all the other cliches that health gurus use to convince others to work out more. Rather, I want to reveal that exercise is a tool that works for me because it boosts my mental health when I feel like the world is spiraling out of control.

To say that 2020 has been a bit of a roller coaster is an extreme understatement. Who knew that this decade was going to start off like THIS!? Not me, not you, and not that sweet old lady who lives down the street. One thing is certain though — while the world may be a mess right now, you can still fuel your body with food that keeps you happy and healthy. Thankfully, as we are all spending more time inside, you can get healthy snacks delivered straight to your front door! Amazon has never been more convenient (and tasty).
