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!

The pandemic has been in our world for more than half of 2020 and people are still acting stupid. If anything, they're getting stupider. They think that the virus is gone. It's not. Stop going to frat parties. Stop trying to go places without a mask. I wish things were normal, too. They're not.

In the summer of 2017, 20 type 1 diabetics completed a 10-week 4,000+ mile bike ride from New York to California. They biked against the advice of doctors, family, and friends. Many were skeptical that people with diabetes could complete such a physically challenging trip without putting themselves in danger due to their disease.

Seasonal Depression Is Real And It Deserves Our Attention

Check in on your friends throughout the winter season, it can be brutal.

As we transition seasons and enter the last few months of the year, some are feeling grand about this natural shift. But that doesn't mean everyone is thrilled that the weather is cooling down — it's important to extend your knowledge to the phenomenon that is seasonal depression.

The lack of sunlight during the later seasons of the year, beginning with autumn, triggers a state of depression for about 15% of the population. This results in the lack of serotonin provided by the sun, causing it to be hard for some to do a lot of the things that would normally be deemed simple tasks to do during the earlier times in the year like getting out of bed, showering, going to work/school, etc. A major difference is an intense need for sleep similar to a hibernation effect.

September Is Suicide Awareness Month, But Mental H​ealth Is An Everyday Discussion

Mental illnesses deserve our attention 365 days a year.

1421

September is Suicide Awareness Month, providing an opportunity to raise awareness, further educate yourself, and remember the reality that mental illnesses present. Yet it's critical to understand that suicide awareness is not an annual Instagram hashtag to use and forget. Actively advocating for mental health resources, progress in education, and a broken stigma is an everyday ask — an activity that we can each participate in.
