13 Shows To Binge Over Summer Break

Summer is long and can get boring compared to the rest of the year. There's only one holiday breaking up the monotony and overall it feels too hot to do much. With these 13 TV shows, you can live vicariously through characters without breaking a sweat.

1. "Supernatural" (Netflix)

"Supernatural" has about 20 episodes per seasons and Netflix carries 14 seasons. "Supernatural" has anything you could want; horror, mystery, friendship, hot guys killing monsters. Well, maybe that's just what I want but it is still so much fun to follow and always has something keeping you on your toes.

2. "Dead to Me" (Netflix)

There are only a few episodes out right now but it is a great one to watch if you only have a day or two free. It has quite a few plot twists, romance, murder. Even my mom wants my Netflix account so she can watch it, but it isn't exactly family friendly.

3. "Friends" (Netflix)

Maybe you need something just to have background noise, "Friends" is perfect for that. Everyone knows the main premise, they're friends in New York. You can tune in and out as you please and with 10 seasons they'll keep you company all summer.

4. "The Office" (Netflix)

If you watch it solely for Jim and Pam, that's OK. It does require more attention than "Friends" but can still be used to make the summer feel less lonely.

5. "Parks and Recreation" (Netflix)

"Parks and Rec" is quite possibly the most awkward, hilarious sitcom of all time. Leslie Knope is everyone at one point in their lives and who I would elect as this country's leader. We deserve Leslie Knope. There's nothing to dislike about this show and every episode will leave a silly smile on your face.

6. "Paradise PD" (Netflix) 

There are 10 episodes of all-out raunchiness. This show is off the wall and absolutely insane, there's drugs, raunchy jokes, sex, and everything in between. It's a good short show that is good for late nights when you need to just laugh until you cry.

7. "One Day At A Time" (Netflix)

I have written about this show before and I will again. "One Day At A Time" is a wholesome, family-oriented show that anybody can relate to. It has three seasons that will just make you smile and feel warm inside.

8. "Brooklyn 99" (Hulu)

"Brooklyn 99" is unproblematic, hilarious, and overall the most engrossing show on television. Andy Samberg is America's father and the king of the world. It has love, comedy, "drama," loveable characters, and life lessons. There are seven seasons and each one somehow gets better and better.

9. "Catfish" (Hulu) 

We all know "Catfish," people faking online. Hulu has 7 seasons and they just hit their 100th episode. Nev and Max are so fun to watch and the episodes are always so crazy that you might not even believe it.

10. "Drake and Josh" (Hulu)

There are four seasons that all '90s and '00s babies will love. It's a blast from the past that will complete your summer.

11. "Bob's Burgers" (Hulu)

There are nine seasons of cute and silly behaviors. The Belchers are how you picture your family but slightly funnier. You can't even pick a favorite character because they're all so adorable and lovable.

12. "Dr. Pimple Popper" (Hulu)

If you can stand a little blood and enjoy surgery, Dr. P.P. is for you. It isn't too long but enjoyable for anyone that isn't too squeamish.

13. "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" (Hulu)

If you need some mind-numbing television that will keep you occupied this summer? Kim Kardashian has got you covered. In the words of Khloe, "thanks for f--king on camera!"

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

Nordstrom's Biggest Sale Has The Most Legendary Deals On Luxury Beauty Brands We've Ever Seen

Counting down the days to the Chanel box set gracing my front door.

I oftentimes (excessively) use the excuse of my job as a writer to justify my excessive spending habits.

I needed the new Huda Beauty palette before anyone else in the name of journalistic integrity. It was my job to test out the new Francis Kurkdjian fragrance to make sure I could tell people whether or not it was truly worth the splurge (it was).

Listen, you can do whatever you want with your free time. It's yours to spend and you have free range. However, I hope you recognize that there are a ton of proactive things you can do right now instead of stalking your man's ex – yes, I know you do it becuase we are all guilty of it.

Take this time to research your privilege. There are always new things to learn and ways to deepen your understanding of yourself, this world, and your surroundings. We live in a multi-dimensional, ever-changing society that needs your help and your time. By that, I mean there are so many layers to each and every one of us, and with our physical, mental, spiritual, or emotional selves, we can create real, positive change.

Preview These Top Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020 Picks — From Luxury Purses To Skincare

Currently 3 million people viewing the Stella McCartney purse I absolutely must have.

Online shopping has been a guilty pleasure of ours for years, but now more than ever it's been a shopping lover's outlet for all our home redecorating projects and resort wear we're purchasing for that trip we had to cancel.

One of my favorite places to (virtually) window shop has always been Nordstrom. I admittedly can't afford to go on sprees there often, but I still get a high off of adding things to my cart I know I'll never actually end up buying. But sometimes, that's not enough — that's when I, like the masses of luxury-, beauty-, fashion-, and decor-lovers around the world count the days down to the annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

I remember the days where closet drinking before going to a party or bar was part of the night's itinerary. It was a requirement to have a good buzz flowing before calling the Uber to take you to that bar where you see everyone from your high school at. The pregames were the best part of the night, but it wasn't ever because of the alcohol, it was because of the atmosphere and those who were in it. The number of times I've heard "Wait, why aren't you drinking tonight? C'mon, get drunk with us" is endless, but think about it. Where were you when you were asked that? You were at the goddamn pregame and being there doesn't mean you need to be ripping shots. Being social doesn't require alcohol.

I asked 20 people how they cut back on alcohol while still being social.

Rihanna is known for many things: her music, fashion, makeup, and now skincare. As a makeup artist myself, I can confidently say that she rocked the makeup world when she released her makeup line in 2017 and has been influencing the beauty world ever since.

Trying some of her makeup products myself, I know that she doesn't skimp on quality, and even though some of her products may be a little pricey, trust me, you get what you pay for.

Friends, no one needs to be reminded that the COVID-19 pandemic rages on in the U.S. Frankly, this is because we have all collectively decided not to do the one simple thing that was asked of us and wear a mask.

I could make this a very boring article, and berate you with facts and statistics and the importance of wearing a mask, but I have opted against that for both of our sakes. Instead, I will attempt to reach you in another way. You might not care about a disapproving look from me, but from Nick Miller? Maybe that will be enough to change your mind.
