8 Fun Things to Try Doing During Quarantine

I know we're all getting tired of being cooped up inside now. But we have to do it for safety, so we might as well make the best of it. Now is the time to get things done while you're sitting at home!

1). Knit (Or Do Another Craft)

I haven't knitted in a while, and now I'm almost done making a scarf. It's actually pretty easy to learn if you give it a try (it can also become addicting)! If you're not into knitting, then try another craft. Pinterest has great ideas!

2). Read a book

To me, this is the perfect time to catch up on my reading! I don't know about any of you, but I own a bunch of books I haven't even read yet- and now's my chance!

3). Watch a "new" movie

Lately, some movies I've never seen before and have been wanting to see have been on tv. I bet you've got some movies you'd like to see, too! Why not see if any of them are on tv? Just because the movie theater is closed doesn't mean you can't see new movies.

4). Don't know how to do some hairstyles (like, for example, a French braid)? Learn how! 

I'm always up for learning how to do new hairstyles. I've always wanted to learn how to French braid, and now I'm beginning to learn. It's quite simple really, it just takes practice.

5). Play a game! 

The family's all inside together (hopefully). Spend time with each other, and have fun!

6). Try out a recipe

It's fun baking and trying out new recipes to see how you like them (you get either a meal or a dessert out of it)! Look online, see if anything looks interesting! The worst that can happen is it not being to your liking.

7). Clean out your stuff

I've been working on organizing my shelves more (remember what I said about books?). Now I have more room, and it feels great!

8). Write

I finally finished writing something I started a long time ago. Feels good! If you don't write stories or articles or anything like that, then just try to keep a journal! This is historic! You're gonna want to remember this!

I know it can boring just sitting at home. If it was an ordinary summer I'd probably be lifeguarding or interning somewhere right about now. But if you give any of these ideas a try, then you might not be so bored anymore! Stay safe (have fun inside), and remember: we are all in this together!

As the holiday season draws nearer, many of us find ourselves drawn to the same old Rankin-Bass Christmas specials and the perennial favorite, "A Charlie Brown Christmas." However, I would like to suggest an overlooked alternative, "Arthur's Perfect Christmas." It is a heartfelt, funny, and surprisingly inclusive Christmas special that deserves more recognition.

Reclaim Your Weekends From The 'Sunday Scaries' With 'Self-Love Sundays' Instead
Olivia DeLucia

Laid back and taking it easy — sometimes that is the motto we all need after a busy week. Sunday scaries? Yes, they are valid – but you know what else is? A Sunday full of self-love. A lazy Sunday spent doing what you feel needs to be done to ease into the next week. Self-Love Sundays are a guilty pleasure that isn't only essential for our mind, and body, but are also a surprisingly proactive way to devote the upcoming week with a clear mindset.

So, what is a more suitable way to dedicate your week's end than a beautifully, connected playlist to accompany your face masks and journaling? Cheers, to a Self-Love Sunday (and a playlist intertwined with it to match). (Please note: "Sunday Morning" isn't included in this list, due to the obvious, but feel free to blast it anyway, we know you want to).

Sunset Girl

The sun rose and peeked through the sheer curtains. Rose’s alarm shrieked. The loud bells caused her phone to jump on the side table. It was time for her to get ready for church. Blindly reaching for her phone, she shut the alarm off and pulled at the covers providing her a cocoon of warmth and tossed them to the side. She swept her bare feet across the bed to touch the cool wooden floor.

Rose softly tiptoed to the corner of the bedroom to grab her clothes dangling on the arm of the bedroom chair. Scooping all of the items of her chosen outfit, she headed to the bathroom hoping that she wouldn’t drop anything.

Round, piercing blue eyes stared back at her in the bathroom mirror. Rose fingered the wrinkles forming around her eyes. So many of them bore signs of laughter and smiling. Slowly dropping her hands, she couldn’t remember the last time she laughed in her home with Tom. Shaking her head as if to erase the negative thoughts, she reached for her makeup bag and went through her regular routine.

Applying her favorite deep rose lipstick, Rose headed downstairs to make her coffee and bagel to take with her to church. The smell of dark-roast coffee swirled in the air as Rose sliced her cinnamon raisin bagel. Hearing the Keurig sputter with the fresh brew, Rose found the interruption of the stillness comforting. The toaster signaled that her bagel was done with a soft pop. It had a delicious golden brown color. Placing the bagel on the counter, she generously spread honey nut flavored cream cheese across both halves. Gathering her bible, notebook, and pens from the side table on the porch she stuffed them into her purse. Purse hanging on her right shoulder she juggled her coffee and bagel in both of her hands as she headed to the garage.

This Holiday Season, Choose To Be Eco-friendly And Reduce Pollution

Many of us have old magazines lying around, fully read and not of much use anymore. However, we can use their bright colors and prints as a stylish and trendy wrapping paper!

It can be overwhelming to see the detrimental effects of climate change and pollution on the news, from animals dying and forest fires spreading, but there are smaller changes that we can all make to reduce our carbon footprint, and it begins with our gifting season.

On average, Americans throw 25% more trash between Thanksgiving and New Years, which translates to 25 million tons of garbage. That's 1 million extra tons per week.
