6 Fun Things To Do Inside During A Snow Day

The weather outside can only be described as one thing: awful! This type of cold should only be found in the deepest parts of Antarctica. While Mother Nature unleashes her icy fury outside, here are a few activities that will keep you occupied so you do not have to put on five layers of clothing and trek out into the unforgiving cold.

1. Binge watch a show...any show

While binge-watching is an everyday staple for many people (especially colleges kids), turning on Netflix on a cold day and watching season after season of a show really hits the spot.

2. Online shop until you drop

Let's be honest, shopping is the best. Nothing and I do mean nothing, can beat it. Why not curl up on the couch, grab that laptop, and get those amazing online deals? If people judge you, just tell them you couldn't go to the stores because it was too cold outside. Nobody can disagree with you on that one.

3. Spa day

Spa days always make for great days, so have one inside and watch outside as the wind blows and the snow comes down. If you know a snowstorm is about to come your way, buy a few bath bombs, a face mask or two, and a few magazines and pour yourself a nice bath and relax. You deserve it!

4. Try out new recipes

Trying out new recipes can always be an exciting thing to do on a day in! It can even be better when you do not have to leave the comfort of your house to go get a ton of ingredients that you might not use again. Apps like SuperCook let you make a list of ingredients you already have and suggests recipes based on those ingredients. So pull out the pots and pans and make something warm and hearty to keep you from freezing!

5. Declutter

Let's face it, we all have way too much stuff laying around our rooms. From the pile of clothes we haven't worn since junior year of high school to the pile of empty water bottles under our bed, there are plenty of things we no longer need. So, why not Marie Kondo-it-up on a cold day and figure out what things "spark joy" to you and which things need to be thrown in the trash.

6. Learn a new language

Out of this whole article, this suggestion might be the most boring. However, you can actually have lots of fun downloading a language app from the app store and playing around with it. Apps like Duolingo allow you to learn multiple languages spanning from Russian to Chinese. With all the hours in a day, you'll be able to learn a new language to curse out the awful weather in.

The winter weather can be something of our nightmares when we think about it. With the nasty winter weather comes potential snow days which can be quite boring when you have nothing to do. So the next time you get lucky and have a snow day, pick a few of these options I've listed for you and enjoy your day at home and out of the extreme cold.

I'm so proud of Demi Lovato's new, powerful breakup ballad, "Still Have Me." After her split from fiancé Max Ehrich, she is pulling herself out from the darkness, picking up the shattered pieces, and realizing that she's got this. If that's not inspirational, I don't know what is.

Trader Joe's has been my favorite grocery store since I knew it existed — from the small, community-like feel to the prepped frozen snacks I throw in the oven 10 minutes before having guests over, it's been a go-to for me for over a decade.

During the four years in college I didn't live near one, friends and I would make a semi-annual pilgrimage to the one nearest us hours away to pick up our favorite essentials, all on a college budget.

It's important to recognize that we all go through different experiences based on the reproductive systems we're born with. Yes, the penis and vagina do different things. I want to understand what it's like to walk around with a pair of balls and I'd hope others are curious about what it's like to bleed once a month, endure infertility issues, and just have a uterus and identify as a woman.

I'm not going to lie — I was pleasantly surprised by the answers I received when I asked 12 men about some basic reproductive health. Here's what they had to say.

Many people want to help when they learn someone they know is going through or has been through, a rough period in life. The issue lies in the right way to approach the situation without making it worse. These encounters, whether they be continuous or a single conversation, are never easy. It's okay to feel discomfort and to question whether or not you're handling it properly.

There are a few things I've found to be mostly universal in theory (if not in full thought) from the person going through a tough time. I hope this brings some understanding and perspective for the next time you have a sit down with someone you care for.

PCOS Is The Worst, But The Women Battling It Every Day Are Extraordinary

Women are learning new ways to assist hormonal health every single day.

Everyone knows someone who has polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). Maybe you don't know that you know, but with 10% of women in the United States having the autoimmune disease, it's more common than you'd think. The hormonal hell that many of these women go through is not only painful, but it's exhausting, with too few answers thanks to a lack of research and consistency.

This lack of research makes the disease rather "trial and error" for many women, as everyone's case is different and requires them to figure things out based on experimentation. Thankfully, the women of the world are good at fixing problems. While PCOS has caused me a lot of hurt, I've been blown away by the women I've met who continue to tackle this battle head-on, one day at a time.

I'm very invested in politics. And supporting and liking certain politicians over others is a part of being invested in politics.
