5 NEW Netflix Shows To Get You Through The End Of The Semester, No Matter What Your Favorite Genre Is

From horror to comedy to romance, there really is something for everyone.


If you are anything like me, the end of the semester has turned into the last leg of a seemingly never-ending race to summer vacation. And if you are even MORE like me, then Netflix has become one of your favorite things to turn to when procrastinating on yet ANOTHER research paper, unhelpful study guide, infuriating group project, or mind-numbingly dull homework assignment that is somehow worth 15% of your grade. So, when you inevitably turn to Netflix to propel you through the last couple weeks of the semester, here are a few suggestions to keep you entertained and less stressed.

1. "The Umbrella Academy"

"The Umbrella Academy" is a fast-paced show about an unlikely family of superheroes who are on a mission to save the world packed with action, adventure, time travel, and fantasy.

3. "Our Planet"

"Our Planet" is a brand new docu-series about how the Earth is being impacted by climate change. You'll be astounded by the planets natural beauty...and you might just learn a few things too.

4. "Sex Education"

May Is Mental Health Awareness Month, A Reminder We Need Even More In Quarantine

You're going through something brand new — that's worth talking about.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month. This isn't new to 2020, but oh man, if we ever needed a reminder about the importance of mental health, now is the time. With different states all over the place in regard to stay-at-home orders, phased reopenings, and a "new normal," we're experiencing conflict, fear, changes, and unknowns that can easily trigger mental struggles we already have or spark feelings we've never had before. Yes, May is always Mental Health Awareness Month, but in quarantine, that need for positive mental health is taken to a whole new level.

The one thing we haven't distanced from is our bank account.

Throughout quarantine, I've been FaceTiming most of my friends in a full turtleneck or the go-to cozy sweater I keep wrapped around the chair in my room. Either way, I always have tea in my hands to keep myself warm — till this past week.

For most of the country who hasn't had the luck of quarantining in 90-degree weather on their family's lake house or with a backyard pool, things began to change this month. Our favorite shows came out with summer seasons, the sun came out, and we started spending more time outside.

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.
