19 Snow Day Activities That Don't Involve Netflix

Snow days provide endless opportunities, opportunities that often go down the drain in favor of extra screen time. Here are 19 alternatives that you just might enjoy more.

1. Go outside.

HAHAHA because that's the last thing anyone wants to do when it actually snows. Good snow days seem to become rarer as the years go on, so take advantage. Whether it's sledding, walking your dog around the block, or making snow angels, get out there and feel alive.

2. Treat yourself to a homemade breakfast.

3. Break out the bubble bath and cucumber slices.

A little sprinkle of self-care always does the trick.

4. Marie Kondo your life.

All those impulse purchases you've accumulated over the past several months? You probably don't need most, if any, of them.

5. Read a book (yes, they still exist).

6. Plan ahead for the warmer days to come.

It's bitter and miserable outside right now, but summer's coming and so is vacation.

7. Home video marathon.

If you happen to be snowed in with the fam, one of the best ways to avoid cabin fever is bonding over home movies.

8. Try a YouTube tutorial.

9. Dedicate your day off to learning a new skill.

If there's something you've always wanted to learn, now's the time.

10. Write a letter to someone you haven't seen in a while.

Grandparents adore letters, just saying.

11. Nap. Time.

...but don't sleep the day away.

12. Write that paper you've been putting off.

Now's the time to be an overachiever. Get it done and out of the way.

13. Give a new recipe a go.

Worst comes to worst, at least Gordon Ramsey isn't there to tell you what you already know.

14. Help out a neighbor.

15. Clean up your space.

16. File your taxes.

Not only is it snow day season, it's also tax season. Take the extra day off to knock out one of America's most-hated activities.

17. Clean out your inbox.

I don't know about you, but looking at the thousands of emails sitting in my account is a huge eyesore.

18. Board game extravaganza.

Monopoly and chill, amirite?

19. Create a masterpiece.

You don't have to be Rapunzel to create something beautiful. It can be a simple watercolor or color-by-number page, anything to get your creative juices flowing.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
