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.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
