THINGS I'VE WATCHED IN QUARANTINE...

Updated: Apr 4

This is my watching journey from March 2020 - present day give or take a few things that I simply cannot remember!


To be completely frank, I've always said I want a vacation where I don't have anything to do, and nothing pressing to do in the future (so like completely stress free, blank slate, nothing on my mind.) Good to learn that this: #Quarantine is NOT what I wanted.


With that being said: I've had a lot of time to binge watch smart things, dumb things, things I've already watched and wanted to re-watch, all the things. So here's my list. Grab your popcorn, log on to your wifi, it's time to #NetflixandChill.
