7 Ways To Be Creative During Quarantine

So you happen to have a load of free time on you hands now, and you aren't entirely sure what to do with it. Here are seven different things that you can do during quarantine to make sure that you don't regret how you spent your time.

First and foremost, what do you want to do? The best and easiest way to find this out is to see what skills you are jealous of other people for having. It could be as simple as learning some basic card tricks to creating a new business, but figuring this out will be a massive help to furthering your goals even in the future.

Cooking

Cooking is a basic life skill that every adult should know in order to survive on their own, and if you're stuck with your own cooking for life, you may as well make sure it's good. There are quite literally thousands, if not millions of videos online tailored to helping beginners learn to cook meal that they can love.

New Language

English is a good language to know, and you could easily get through life knowing only English and never have to even think about anything outside the scope of what you know. However, only 20% of the world speaks English. That is 80%, or almost 6 billion people, whom you are closing yourself off to. 6 billion lives worth of knowledge you will never find, so pick a language, one that you like for the sounds, the look, the letters, anything, and learn.

Group Projects

First off, no, not a group project for school or to create a presentation about a socioeconomic issue, but if that is what you would enjoy, all power to you. Pick something you enjoy, but you've never been motivated to finish. Find people with the same passions as you and get to work. Numerous studies have shown that being a part of a group motivates people to do more work and not give up. I personally think this is due to yourself not being the only person you let down if you quit, so go out there and finish that one thing you've always wanted to complete.

Online Classes

This one is simple enough, and fits in with the whole "passion" set of things. But chances are, if you have a passion, there is a class online for that, and a lot of them are extremely cheap and/or free. And even if you don't have a specific interest, a lot of places have classes that are interesting enough to merit a closer look, so check it out!

DIY

There is a world of arts and crafts that are left untouched due to being classified as useless. But that doesn't matter. DIYs are fun, regardless of whether or not the final product is something that you even need and/or want. It just having a good time and challenging your motor and creative skills.

Baking

I know this seems to go hand in hand with cooking, but there is a difference worth meriting. Cooking's primary purpose is to keep you fed, while baking is meant to have fun with making food. Not to say that cooking can't be fun, it is in fact very enjoyable, but when you think of having fun cooking with the family, baking cookies and cakes is most often what comes to mind, so go and bake some cookies and cakes!

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.

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.
