13 Shows To Binge Over Summer Break

Already bored this summer? Here are 13 shows to keep you occupied.

21

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!"

This Survey Shows How Quarantine And Drinking Relate, And I Can't Say I'm Surprised

"5 o'clock somewhere" is more of a guideline now than ever.

As it stands, and my friends and I are finally 21. We're extremely excited to be able to go out to bars and "get lit" as the kids say, but due to the pandemic, all of our plans have been put on hold. We'd rather wait and go when it's safe than risk spreading the infection and hurting our loved ones. So, we've all been quarantining apart, getting on the occasional wine zoom call. This made me wonder if anyone else our age were doing the same thing.

Then, I discovered this survey: We Surveyed Millennials And Gen Z About Their Quarantine Drinking Habits — Cheers. Here are 3 things that I discovered through the survey results.

There are plenty of ways to bring yourself out of whatever rut you're in. You could go for a run, have a snack, or read a book. Or, if you're really looking for an adrenaline rush, go shopping.

I Wore A Butt Mask Every Day For A Month, And It's Officially Essential In My Daily Self-Love Routine Now

Thirty days later, my booty's as smooth as a baby's.

- Blissfully unaware that butt-care beyond squats was even something I should be considering in my self-care routine, I tried one of Bawdy Beauty's butt masks for the first time a month ago.

- I've never really given my butt a second though till I took a look at improvements that could be made with the mask — if one of the hydrating, firming, detoxifying, or brightening masks in the kit I received could either smooth out cellulite or tone my skin a bit more, I wasn't going to complain.

- Each Bawdy Beauty sheet mask comes in an individually-packaged sheet, soaked with a serum I massaged into my skin after removing said sheet. The clay butt mask comes in a convenient stick format I simply draw on to my skin and leave to set for about 10 minutes before hopping into the shower.

- I set a goal of committing myself to butt-care every day for one month. Between the regular use of sheet masks, clay masks, and their CBD Butt Balm in between, I didn't have many expectations.

- I thought the whole concept may just be a gimmick, but my butt has never looked so toned in my life, and the cellulite I had is almost completely gone. I wear one every single day when I get the chance.

I'm incredibly skeptical when it comes to marketing ploys and gimmicks in the beauty world. I'll be the first cynic to try out the latest serum on the market every influencer is raving about just to negate every grandiose claim it makes.

Friends, you don't have to be quarantined to use a personal massager, you know? Because, sure, quarantine made for a lot of extra quality time with yourself, but no matter what phase of the reopening process you're in, it's normal and actually healthy to take care of your sexual needs on your own.
