Alone Together

This is not how any of us thought we would be spending the end of our school year. I’m sure many of you are in the same boat as me, when not doing homework, there is nothing to do while quarantined. I have made this list of Netflix recommendations for everyone in case you’re like me and feel like you’ve seen everything there is to watch. Trust me, you haven’t. Hopefully, you can find something on this list to help escape the boredom. These are in no particular order, but I believe they’re all must-sees. Happy quarantining everyone. Stay safe and stay well.
