How to Maintain A Relationship During Quarantine

With the Coronavirus pandemic, it has been essential for every individual to be self quarantined in order to reduce the spread of this virus. Unfortunately, I have seen a lot of younger adults at the beach for spring break or partying without caring about what is going on. Although a healthy young adult will probably be okay if they get sick, they can still be carriers of it. Then, it can be spread to someone who might have an immune deficiency.

With all of this happening, I have had friends asking me how they can maintain their relationships when they can't see their significant other. It's hard for them, especially the ones starting with someone new.

Here are some ideas of how to self-quarantine while maintaining this relationship:

1. Quarantine and chill

Lol, this one is kind of hard because it can really only be safe if neither party has been exposed to someone with the virus.

2. Watch Netflix with them online

"Netflixparty" gives Netflix the capability of watching Netflix with friends online. There is even a chat section on the side. This allows for a cute, long-distance movie night date.

3. Facetime

Technology advances woo hoo! Facetime for lunch or dinner, or even for late night chat.

4. Snapchat

Share cute pictures about your day.

5. Tik Tok

Duet each other's videos and become a Tik Tok couple.

6. Share a playlist

Show them how much you care by putting together a playlist.

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.

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
