New Girl, The Modern Day Friends?

New Girl, The Modern Day Friends?

As a college student and an avid TV/Netflix watcher I haveto say one of my favorite shows by far is New Girl. It’s one of those shows that no matter what mood or what time of day it is this show satisfies, to me it is like a modern day Friends.


For those of you who haven’t seen it, New Girl begins when the main character Jessica (Jess), a bubbly young teacher whose boyfriend cheated on her, answers an ad on Craig’s list looking for a new roommate. Her new roommates turn out to be three young men: Nick, Schmidt, and Winston. From there the show follows how their friendship develops, their interconnected lives as they navigate through complex romantic relationships, their career choices, and ultimately shows their growth as they try and find their place in the world.

This show has it all smart and witty humor, drama, romance, and perfectly imperfect characters. Guys and girls alike will be hard-pressed to not find at least one of the characters they can’t relate to. Overall it has won me over and often my friends and I will get together just to watch it. Have I convinced you to watch it yet? If not, here are a few of my favorite quotes from the show that hopefully you will find as entertaining as I did! (For those of you who already watch New Girl I know you must be as excited as I am for the new season premiere Tuesday, September 16th!)

There is something serious I have to tell you about the future. The name of my first-born child needs to be Reginald Vel Johnson

I lost a bet to Schmidt. –Nick   

Girl, I got an a...sandwich...meeting. –Winston   

I'm in a limo! I wish I had really long legs so I could stretch 'em out the length of the limo! –Jess

Everyone remembers the first time they went to one of the Disney parks. Spinning in teacups and having Goofy wrap his arms around my 8-year-old self were some of my fondest childhood memories, and I'm surely not alone in that.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.

Kourtney is leaving the show because it was taking up too much of her life and it was a "toxic environment" for her.

We Asked You How You Felt About Resuming 'Normal' Activities, And Some Of Your Answers Shocked Us

The New York Times asked 511 epidemiologists when they'd feel comfortable doing "normal" activities again, considering COVID-19. We asked our peers the same thing, for science.

Last month, the New York Times surveyed about 500 epidemiologists asking about their comfort level with certain activities once deemed normal — socializing with friends, going to the doctor, bringing in the mail. That's all well and good for the experts, but they are a very niche group, not the majority of the population. What do "normal" people feel safe doing? In certain states, we've seen how comfortable everyone is with everything (looking at you, Florida), but we wanted to know where Odyssey's readers fell on the comfort scale. Are they sticking with the epidemiologists who won't be attending a wedding for another year, or are they storming the sunny beaches as soon as possible?
