As an oncology patient, I have spent a good chunk of the last 5 years on isolation. With what seems like the shutdown of the outside world, I would like to formally welcome y’all to the club of isolation. The good thing? NETFLLIX!

The Vampire Diaries
I will never not tell you to watch The Vampire Diaries! I am currently watching the series for the seventh time. I started watching this show about six years ago and I have spent many long hospital stays watching this one.
Love Is Blind
This show is new to Netflix and you just about have to be living under a rock to not have heard of it. It is a reality show where couples date and become engaged before ever seeing each other. It is awful in the best kind of way!
Gossip Girl is such a classic. Whether you are watching for the first time or the ninth, it is sure to be a good choice.
This is a super light-hearted show! My entire family enjoys this and it is nice to have on in the background (read: ideal for working from home).
