9 Times 'Schitt's Creek' Explained How We Are All Feeling During Quarantine

Since the only thing I'm doing now is watching Netflix.

9 Times 'Schitt's Creek' Explained How We Are All Feeling During Quarantine

The unfortunate reality of quarantine is currently making almost everyone on edge. Even if you're using this time to be productive by exploring your hobbies or working on your fitness from home, we are all counting down the innumerable days until we can return back to our regular routines.

Unlike those who are experimenting with art or doing anything even remotely productive, I am taking this time in isolation to finally watch some television shows that have been on my list for years. I'm usually hesitant when it comes to engaging in something new since I prefer to rewatch the same series over and over again. Once I realized that I was beginning to memorize every line of Parks and Recreation, I knew it was time to branch out.

One of the most recommended shows on my list was Schitt's Creek, a series created by a father and son who happen to be two of the main characters: Eugene Levy and Dan Levy. It follows the hilarious journey of a wealthy family who loses everything and has to relocate to the small town of Schitt's Creek. It took me a few episodes to really become invested, but after that, I was hooked.

Alhough most of us can't necessarily relate to losing billions of dollars in a matter of days like the Rose family, we know what it's like to have our normal life ripped away from us during this global pandemic. For an upper-class family, they're much more relatable than I thought they would be.

1. When We Were First Told About Having to be Quarantined


Let's face it: no one wants to be stuck at home all day.

2. Trying a New Hobby Since You're Bored


Never crocheted in your life? Want to learn how to paint with your feet? This is your time to shine!

3. When the Days of Quarantine Keep Being Extended


We know we can't do anything to fix it, but that doesn't mean we have to be happy about it.

4. Finally Forcing Yourself to Change Out of Your Pajamas


It's the small victories that really count during all of this.

5. Just Thinking About Reading the News


When things keep getting worse every day, it's hard to even want to stay informed.

6. Realizing the Government Could Have Taken Action Sooner


Honestly, those $1200 relief checks don't even begin to cut it.

7. Doing Your Best to Practice Social Distancing


The perfect excuse to avoid talking to my siblings.

8. Modeling Your Unwashed Sweatpants for Your Family


They may have day-old stains from pasta sauce, but they're still fashionable.

9. Watching All Essential Personnel Continue to Work


Thank you to all the doctors, nurses, cashiers, baggers, stockers, truck drivers, teachers, and everyone else who continue to risk their lives for our safety.

Quarantine definitely sucks, but as long as we stick to it to the best of our abilities, we will get through this. Remember: staying inside can save lives!

Exposing Kids To Nature Is The Best Way To Get Their Creative Juices Flowing

Whenever you are feeling low and anxious, just simply GO OUTSIDE and embrace nature! According to a new research study published in Frontiers in Psychology, being connected to nature and physically touching animals and flowers enable children to be happier and altruistic in nature. Not only does nature exert a bountiful force on adults, but it also serves as a therapeutic antidote to children, especially during their developmental years.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
