A College Student’s Daily Schedule in Quarantine
Start writing a post

These few weeks have been crazy for all of us I'm sure. As a college student, it's hard to find the motivation to do anything in the comfort of my home. I try to get into a set schedule, but it never works out. Here's how my days usually go:

9:00 AM

I have my alarm set to wake me up. I slap the snooze button and go back to bed.

11:00 AM

After hitting snooze for the past two hours, I finally wake up. I don't get out of bed though. Instead, I remain under the warmth of my blankets and scroll through social media.

12:30 PM

I finally drag myself out of bed and trudge down the stairs in my pajamas to fix myself some breakfast. My mom is always at the table eating lunch and shaking her head in disappointment. After breakfast, I lounge about on the sofa and watch some videos on the internet. I might check my emails, it just depends on the day. I have schoolwork to do, but I just don't have the effort to do it.

3:00 PM

The realization that I have due dates approaching hits me and I reluctantly brush my teeth and hair before shuffling into my room and beginning some work.

6:00 PM

I take a break from schoolwork to eat dinner. I lounge around for another hour, talking with my family and relaxing, before I take a shower to wake myself up for a night of schoolwork.

9:00 PM

I get super stressed about all the work that I have to do so I hunker down and get super focused on some schoolwork.

10:00 PM

I start to get tired and mentally burnt out so I take a small break to relax my creative muscles by writing. I've got a personal creative writing project that I'm working on progressively. Then I spend the next hour or so finishing up the schoolwork I started earlier.

12:00 AM

To chill out before bed, I brew some relaxing tea, grab a light snack, and snuggle up with some blankets to watch some TV shows.

1:00 AM

I tell myself I'll go to bed at this time and wake up at 9:00 AM. That doesn't happen. Instead I start listening to some music; a terrible decision.

3:00 AM

Everyone in my household is asleep, even my cat. Meanwhile, I'm doing a full on performance in my room to "Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go" donning a hoodie and a pair of sunglasses. It's become a nightly ritual.

3:15 AM

A sad song comes on shuffle and I have a mini existential crisis.

3:30 AM

I'm back in the groove and start vibing to the Eagles.

4:00 AM

I realize how late it is and actually get to bed.

The whole cycle repeats itself. It's such a hard cycle to break.

The return of these characters comes after Meredith was diagnosed with COVID-19 and began experiencing hallucinations of her loved ones.

I love listening to Christmas music just as much as the next person, but when I turn on my local holiday radio station each year, it just feels repetitive. No hate to musicians like Burl Ives or Nat King Cole, but Christmas music needs an update. Personally, I'm tired of the same "Let It Snow" and "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas". So plug in your Christmas tree, make some hot cocoa, and listen to these amazing (and updated) holiday songs.

10 Christmas Songs For Your Festive Playlist

I have no shame in starting to feel festive super early.


All of these songs are definitely popular. However, I have the strong opinion that having the songs on your Christmas playlist be popular is extremely important. Having everyone sing to the songs is most of the fun; it adds to the festivity of whatever you're doing.

Personally, I love to bake cookies and hum along as I cannot sing and no one should ever hear me. Whatever you do for the holidays, enjoy your festive time and the season!

5 Movies And TV Shows That Got Mental Illness Right​

There is a very fine line between representation for mentally ill people and demonizing them for the sake of entertainment. Hollywood has a tendency to sensationalize mental illness, but these shows and movies got it right.


At the risk of being dismissive of all the progress we've made, mental health representation is still seriously lacking. Many shows fall into the traps of making their mentally ill character violent, making professional help seem useless, or making characters who don't reflect the reality for people living with mental illness.
