  It‘s not easy to be closed off from the rest of humanity at times like these. Social distancing is an important aspect in these times of uneasiness. However, you are not alone. Many people are taking this situation and making the most of it. One way people are making it through is by turning to streaming services to entertain themselves. 
  Jilda Torres, CSU Bakersfield biology major, said she has been watching the popular anime show, “Naruto.” 

  “It is funny and interesting to watch. It will keep you busy since it has many episodes,” said Torres. 

  “Naruto” can be found available for streaming on Hulu. 

  Edith Juarez, CSUB communications major, has been watching the comedy show “New Girl,” featuring Zooey Deschanel, on Netflix. 

  According to Juarez, “New Girl” provides a funny distraction during the current COVID-19 pandemic. 

  Daniela Alamos, CSUB psychology major, has been watching the popular HBO series “Game of Thrones.” 

  “This is my favorite show. It is my second time watching it and it doesn’t fail to surprise me how well it is put together. It is a good option to watch in quarantine because it is a show that you won’t get tired of. It has everything: love, drama, horror, comedy, fantasy and more. The production value is so good. The characters are well put together and very impressive,” said Alamos. 

  “Game of Thrones” has eight seasons with many episodes. If you have never seen it, it will definitely fill your free time. 

  There are many other shows available during this time of staying home. The important part is to enjoy them either with your family or by yourself. 

  Remember to keep your distance, and please wash your hands.
