3 Post-Quarantine Activities!

Some activities you can do with friends now that quarantine is lifted while still staying six feet apart!

3 Post-Quarantine Activities!

Quarantine has officially been lifted in some states, which means you can finally go outside and hang out with friends, visit your grandparents, and even go eat out at a restaurant -- while still abiding to social distancing guidelines, however. As someone with a high-risk family member, I am still wary about COVID-19 spreading, and I cannot risk getting the virus in fear of infecting my ill family member. Therefore, I will still be staying inside as much as possible, wearing facemasks when I go outside, and taking showers after I get back home. I do miss my friends and family though, and so I will definitely want to visit them and do in-person activities that don't require much contact. Here are some relaxing post-quarantine activities that you can do with your friends and family that will still follow social distancing guidelines!


Frisbee is a very fun sport to play in an open area, which will help you maintain social distance! The game requires two or more people to throw the frisbee disk back and forth. If you have enough people, playing ultimate frisbee would make for a rigorous outdoor activity with friends and family.

Drawing with chalk!

It's time to show off your art! Drawing on pavements or streets with chalk is such a fun and creative activity to do. You can write uplifting quotes, draw beautiful art on each sidewalk block, or work together to create a floor mural! You can even have an art contest with your friends. There's so much you can do with chalk art, and it doesn't require that you are less than six feet apart!

A cozy outdoor picnic!

So many people are having picnic dates with their friends and family, even during quarantine! This is a great low-budget activity because it only requires a blanket and fresh food, ready to eat. It is also very easy to set up while still maintaining six feet of social distance. There's something very therapeutic about eating outdoors when the sun is out under a shady tree with friends you haven't seen in person for a while that makes you feel relaxed and more appreciative of life pre-quarantine. PS: Picnic dates make great Instagram photos too!

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Fibonacci Sequence Examples: 7 Beautiful Instances In Nature

Nature is beautiful (and so is math). The last one will blow your mind.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
