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.

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!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
