My 5 Staples of Quarantine Thus Far

The Occasional Chipotle Run

I have come to realize this past year that I may have a Chipotle OBSESSION! I could probably eat it every day if I could. But to constantly crave a bowl filled with goodness within has kept me sane. Luckily Chipotle has the quick pickup inside their restaurants, it is a quick in and out. You know, not only be safe during these times of uncertainty but it also helps when I order it by the time I get there it is ready.

The Daily Dose of Coffee

College has definitely had its effects on my drinking of coffee, but this past year I surely cannot go without my morning coffee. Whether it is hot coffee or even an iced coffee, even a whipped coffee (Thanks TikTok) every now and then.

Binge Worthy Shows

I mean is this even a question for a quarantine staple. I watched, for the first time, Game Of Thrones within a span of only a few months. One of my favorite shows yet and I cannot wait for House of the Dragon to come out. Trinkets and The Rain are more favorites, and I just started watching Tiny Pretty Things.

Cooking and Baking

I have always enjoyed baking and cooking, but with more time on my hands I have enjoyed it a little more. I swear I baked like 100 loaves of zucchini bread from homegrown zucchinis from our family garden. I have learned how to make homemade cinnamon rolls too.

And Yes, my Family

I do not know what I would do this past year being by myself, I am lucky enough to have had my family at my side. Besides the craziness that we call this year, game nights here and there have been a part of the agenda as well as the occasional laugh at each other.

Black Friday: Explained

Time to question this unofficial corporate holiday.

On a personal level, Black Friday has always confused me. Everyone just ate a ton and spent all day with their families—why would we want to go out and vigorously shop, fighting crowds? I totally see why other people want to go do it, but I’ve never quite understood the concept myself. While I’ve been Black Friday shopping once or twice, I don’t get that excited about it unless it’s an opportunity to spend time with family or friends. Don’t get me wrong; I am the queen of bargains. Still, I never seem to have the energy to go out into the jungle of shoppers early the day after Thanksgiving, or even immediately after Thanksgiving dinner. Many people, though—including my loved ones—are enthusiastic about Black Friday shopping, and it seems most other Americans are the same way. So, it’s worth looking at the reasons for this commercially-driven, unofficial American holiday.

#OptOutside This Black Friday

I am opting to go outside this Black Friday, and I hope you do so as well.

Ross Woodhall

The day after Thanksgiving has always been regarded by many as the beginning of the Christmas season. While not a federal holiday, many people take off work, spend time at home with their families, and enjoy the beginning of the holiday season. This Friday off turned into a prime opportunity to begin the never-ending chore of Christmas shopping. Soon it became one of the busiest shopping days a year, which companies capitalized on by bringing the best deals of the year to this day we know as Black Friday.
