If you're stuck inside with your significant other and searching for "date night" ideas, I've come up with a few. Sometimes it's altogether too easy to end up laying around and doing nothing, or finding things to do separately, but I made a short list of activities you and your lover can do together. That being said, these things work for roommates, friends, and family as well.

Movie marathon

This seems intuitive and like something you may have done even before the COVID-19 crisis, but with all of this time stuck in quarantine, you may as well choose a theme and stick with it for a while. You could watch the Marvel Cinematic Universe, binge the Harry Potter series, or even force him to watch Twilight (I'm still working on that one). Make up a comfy space to watch, whether it's a bed covered in pillows or a pile of blankets on the living room floor, and get to streaming your favorite films.

Puzzles

Here's something sort of productive while still just laying around. Find a fun-themed puzzle and lay it out on the table or floor for more space, and get to work. This can be relaxing but also frustrating, so keep that in mind when deciding on the kind of puzzle!

Homemade gourmet meal

Yeah, you can order takeout like you have for the past few weeks, or you could make a grocery run and pick up all of the ingredients for your significant other's favorite food. Might as well grab drinks and dessert while you're at it, and make a whole night of it. If you're really feeling it, you could even get dressed up and pretend you're at a fancy restaurant. The world is your oyster!

Games

Board games, card games, video games, etc. Challenge your boo to a little friendly competition and see who is the best at MarioKart or Smash Bros...I already know that I would lose in a video game no matter what, but that doesn't make it any less fun! Pick up your favorite board game from your childhood or FaceTime friends and stream a digital game. There are so many possibilities and you could do different games each time.

Crafts

I know that not everyone is as into creative activities as I am, but I really think it would be a cute idea for a date night! For Valentine's Day Graham and I painted pottery and it was a blast, so bringing that sort of date home would be pretty cool. When you're on your weekly grocery run grab a few canvasses and paint or even some white clothing items and tie dye. There are so many different options and everything can be 100% customized. Find what works best for you and run with it.

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).

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.
