10 Virtual Date Ideas When You're Stuck At Home

Quarantine dating is NOT the same as long-distance. I don't care what anyone says. Not being able to see each other for an indefinite period due to a terrifying, potentially world-altering reason is nothing like moving to another town. You run out of things to talk about because nothing at all is happening in your respective lives, and the days just seem to dredge on. Doing some fun things together while apart can keep it fresh and interesting! I wanted to offer some ideas for couples struggling with their newfound separation.

1. FaceTime Dinner

Giphy

Dress up and set up nice meals on FaceTime! Pretend you're at a restaurant and talk about random subjects. Try to go abstract, philosophical, or deep/personal in your discussions.

2. Movie Night

Giphy

Download Netflix Party and watch a movie together!

3. Games

Giphy

You can use iMessage games or another platform, but competing with each other is a fun way to bond.

4. 20 Questions

Giphy

This is sooo middle school, but you can find tons of other "get to know you" games like this that are more interesting/relevant that will help you get to know each other better. Especially for couples who have been together for a long time, you can learn things about each other that you never knew before!

5. Cooking Challenge

Giphy

See who can cook the best-looking meal with random ingredients from their kitchen. Recreate top chef! You can also just cook "together" on FaceTime.

6. Virtual Tour

Giphy

Lots of museums have free virtual tours! FaceTime and look through them on your laptops.

7. Make a Post-Quarantine Bucket List.

Giphy

When life resumes, you're gonna wanna do everything! Think of fun things you've been wanting to do and write them down! It will give you something to look forward to as well.

8. Mail Love Letters to Each Other

Giphy

So romantic and thoughtful! Pour your heart out! Words of affirmation are very important! Make sure to sanitize them if you take them out of the mailbox within 24 hours (ish) of its delivery.

9. Watch the Same TV Show

Giphy

Watch or read the same series, designate amount of episodes/chapters, and discuss once a week!

10. Watch the Sunset/Sunrise Together

Giphy

FaceTime and enjoy the stars, nature, sunset, or sunrise together! This can be a nice way to reconnect to nature and feel hopeful about the future. This too shall pass.

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.
