5 Things To Do While Stuck At Home

During these insane times, we all have to find ways to stay sane while staying in. Although being stuck at home because of a pandemic isn't ideal, it does provide for a lot of time to do things for yourself! If you haven't been staying home and continue to galavant around town, please stay home, and maybe this list can give you some inspiration!

1. Rewatch Gossip Girl


One of the greatest love stories of all time, Chuck and Blair. This quarantine has provided ample time to rewatch the entire Gossip Girl series, and allow you to fall in love with them all over again. If you never watched Gossip Girl originally, then I am fiercely envious of you, because now you can experience it for the first time in such a way that really allows you to soak in the fabulousness of the show.

2. Learn to cook


So obviously this isn't something I will be learning to do during this self-isolation, however I have seen tons of influencers on Insta learning how to cook now. I tried to cook something the other day, and it ended in tears and some super burnt food. Cooking isn't for everyone, but if you're good at cooking, then it's a great skill to have under your belt!

3. Go through your old school yearbooks


Going through your old yearbooks is hilarious because you can see how much people have changed, or how they've stayed entirely the same. Bonus points if you start cyber-stalking old classmates and they now have a kid. (or multiple) Doing this also helps you selfishly feel better about yourself because you realize there are some people who will literally never leave your little hometown and at least your out here doing something!

4. Rearrange your space


Rearranging your space is a fun way to change the vibe of the room and it's genuinely just fun. You don't even need to buy anything new to redesign, there are tons of ways to display the pieces you already have! Doing this makes you feel like your on your own episode of an HGTV show, 10/10 would recommend!

5. Write a letter to someone


Write a letter to your grandparents, high school friends, an old teacher, it doesn't matter! Handwriting someone a letter is a lost art, and it will really make the person receiving it so happy, because they know you took extra time to think about them and do this!

As any other person on this planet, it sometimes can be hard to find the good in things. However, as I have always tried my hardest to find happiness in any and every moment and just generally always try to find the best in every situation, I have realized that your own happiness is much more important than people often think. Finding the good in any situation can help you to find happiness in some of the simplest and unexpected places.

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.

Recently, an article on Total Sorority Move called 23 Things My Boyfriend Better Not Get Me For Christmas, was going around on social media.

I would like to represent the girlfriends out there who disagree with her standpoint -- the girlfriends who would be more than happy to receive any of these gifts from their boyfriends.
