There are a few traditional New Girl easter eggs you may already be aware of. For example, how they say something about bears every episode, or how every football game they play is a recording of a University of Oklahoma football game. However, I’ve watched this show five times all the way through since August (I’m fine, kind of) and I picked up some things that I believe are subtle enough to have been missed by many. They could also just be coincidences.
Here are 16 examples of foreshadowing and easter eggs in New Girl:
(Spoiler alert, obvs)
When television and movies first began, there was a huge battle over censorship. The U.S. government tried hard to implement censorship requirements. In order to keep some creative freedom, Hollywood created the Motion Picture Production Code of 1930. Then, Hollywood proceeded to make movies with inappropriate references disguised as double entendres. That way, they were able to still make the content they wanted, it just required audiences to think a bit.
(That is a very, very, very simplified way of explaining televisions history with censorship, but it’s all the background needed to emphasize my next point).

I’ve been fortunate enough to have not yet contracted COVID-19 (knock on wood). I have, however, been exposed a number of times by people who swore to me they were quarantining. So, am I allowed to be angry with them?
Short answer, yes.
Any kind of anxiety or anger you feel is valid. However, it isn’t helpful to lash out at someone who already has a deadly virus.
It can be argued you shouldn’t be upset with someone for exposing you because you should’ve been quarantining this entire time. This argument is flawed, though.
We have spent almost the entire…
This year has been a productive one for many artists out there. Thus, lots of music was created and/ or released during lockdown. Here are some of the ones that made me happy enough to forget the world was on fire for about three minutes. These are not claiming to be the “best songs from 2020”, just some that you may not have heard that brought me some joy.
This year has been the perfect time for a lot of people to learn something new. Many of my friends have started taking online classes, baking, and learning a new skill. Something I’ve been reading a lot about during quarantine is zodiac signs.
Now, when I say “reading a lot about”, I mean I’ve seen about 30,000 Tik Toks about zodiac signs.This means I am not qualified to give my opinions on the zodiac signs.
But I’m going to anyway.
The following are my vague, out of context, views on the twelve zodiac signs.
Don’t take anything personally, my opinion…
The COVID-19 pandemic has killed hundreds of thousands of people. It has destroyed so many lives. When I talk about my experience, it is not to mitigate anyone else’s. This post is just things I found interesting as someone with OCD in a pandemic.
I am privileged in that my negative experiences with the COVID-19 pandemic have thus far been mild. I know that hasn’t been the case for so many people.
Growing up, a pandemic was my literal worst fear. My OCD manifested heavily on cleanliness and disease, which led me to be a super annoying germaphobe.
It can be difficult to ask your parents if you can go to therapy. Before you ask your parents, there are a few things you should prepare yourself for regarding their reactions.
A very common reaction from the parent of a child who wants to go to therapy is self-blame. Because mental health is so stigmatized, most parents in this day-and-age feel like they’re responsible for their child’s mental health. Instead of validating your concerns, they will often try to tell you things aren’t that bad, or you’re making it up for attention. …
I ’ve never been diagnosed with Face Blindness (Prosopagnosia), but it’s a running joke in my family that I have it. There are so many instances where I will have watched a movie and thought two main characters were the same person. There are also several instances in which I mix up celebrities.
I really hope I’m not alone in this.
Here’s a list of all the celebrities I genuinely confuse one another for:
Erik Dane and Josh Duhamel:
Zac Efron and…
People who talk about how they want to change or “fix” their body often offend those who haven’t ever given it thought. It can also be hard watching someone bruise and wince for the sake of cosmetics.
Because plastic surgery is so life-interrupting and sometimes life-threatening, it’s easy to be upset with someone for putting themselves through that just to change something about themselves. However, it is rude and unkind to express that resentment toward them.
It can also be hard to watch someone get a surgery you feel you also need. It can make you feel like you’re not…
Since I was little, I had a theory that people’s names gave a decent warning about who a person was. This theory is NOT based in fact. It is based on a series of coincidences that have led me to believe I have a good guess of who a person is from their name alone.
Not every name in the world will be listed. Mainly because I haven’t met many people. But also because I am a white, twenty-year-old girl with very little cultural background and knowledge.
If your name is the same as any of the following, it is…
