If you’ve never had a chance to watch Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, this is your chance to pour yourself a glass of punch, rip open a family size bag of chips, and binge watch (then read this article, because warning: spoilers). It has the spunky spirit of Sex and the City, the family-friendly but hilarious humor of Bob’s Burgers, and the color palette of an overzealous kindergardener. What isn’t to love??
Beyond the entertainment, there are some really amazing things you can take away from this show, from its makeup/fashion inspiration to the surprisingly life-changing advice the characters give. Its portrayal of a positive gay relationship, its insight into the effects of a less-than-ideal childhood (to say the least), and its peppy colorful optimism are just a few reasons why this is a great show to watch to chill out from finals. Admittedly, there are some iffy plotlines, but overall, this is an amazing and light hearted show with a lot to offer!
Here are five life lessons to take away from UKS that will make you feel like a million bucks!

3. Embrace your inner child
