Are you wondering how other people are spending their quarantine? I know for a fact that the extrovert in me is EXTREMELY ready for some social interaction.

I asked my friends to send me a recent picture of themselves with a description of how they've been spending their time in quarantine. I told them I would use their picture and their description in my article.

"Quarantine is non existent for me since I'm still working. A lot of people have taken a leave of absence so the hours that I've been working have increased by a lot." -Savannah H.

"Still wearing my blues. Thankful that TSA has limited staffing so everyone is taking turns with shifts. Blessed to still be getting paid in full for the average hours I work. In the meantime I'v picked up painting, been learning new songs on guitar, as well as spending time with my horse." -Sarah S.

"i have been doing a lot of homework, house work, and a lot of wishing i were more productive and making better use of the time that i have now that i do not have to be at school all day or work, or be involved in extra curriculars in college. i've felt so guilty because of this. finding the motivation is even harder because there's almost nothing to really set me up. i've just been worrying about my classes nonstop." -Rebecca W.

Especially during times like these, I wanted to take some time to show some appreciation to my friends by giving them a platform to share their own story.

With the semester coming to an end and the summer quickly approaching, I am looking forward to the times spent with friends and family when legally able to do so. We can do this!

Not only does nature exert a bountiful force on adults, but it also serves as a therapeutic antidote to children, especially during their developmental years.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

I have been excited for this movie ever since I saw the NYC skyline in the trailer that was released earlier this year. I'm a sucker for any movie or TV show that takes place in the Big Apple.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.

Open-mindedness. It is something we all need a reminder of some days. Whether it's in regards to politics, religion, everyday life, or rarities in life, it is crucial to be open-minded. I want to encourage everyone to look at something with an unbiased and unfazed point of view. I oftentimes struggle with this myself.
