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

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

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


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!

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.

Kourtney is leaving the show because it was taking up too much of her life and it was a "toxic environment" for her.

We Asked You How You Felt About Resuming 'Normal' Activities, And Some Of Your Answers Shocked Us

The New York Times asked 511 epidemiologists when they'd feel comfortable doing "normal" activities again, considering COVID-19. We asked our peers the same thing, for science.

Last month, the New York Times surveyed about 500 epidemiologists asking about their comfort level with certain activities once deemed normal — socializing with friends, going to the doctor, bringing in the mail. That's all well and good for the experts, but they are a very niche group, not the majority of the population. What do "normal" people feel safe doing? In certain states, we've seen how comfortable everyone is with everything (looking at you, Florida), but we wanted to know where Odyssey's readers fell on the comfort scale. Are they sticking with the epidemiologists who won't be attending a wedding for another year, or are they storming the sunny beaches as soon as possible?

Disney Plus

Millions of musical-lovers around the world rejoiced when "Hamilton," the hip-hop-mixtape-turned-musical harder to get in to than Studio 54, came to Disney Plus.

For those who had the luxury of being able to watch it in person and rewatch it with us mere mortals on our screens, the experience was almost as gripping as sitting feet from Lin-Manuel Miranda himself. From the stunning sets, graceful choreography, witty dialogue, and hauntingly beautiful singing, the experience was one even my musical-averse family felt moved by.

There has been a Keto diet craze going around in the past couple of years, with many of its followers claiming significant weight loss. With any new, trendy diet claiming miraculous weight-loss, one starts to wonder what exactly is happening behind the curtain. The keto, or ketogenic, diet is a very low-carb, high-fat diet that claims to help the body shift its fuel source from carbs to fat. In the medical community it has been prescribed to patients with uncontrolled epilepsy to reduce the frequency of seizures, but other than that there is little conclusive evidence to other potential benefits.
