Quarantine Vibin'

A little quarantine bucket list, if you will.

Quarantine Vibin'

I'm the type of person who always likes to have my endgame in mind, which is a huge reason why quarantine is stressing me out. I don't know how long this will go on and I don't know how this will turn out. I have no end game.

When I worry... I don't stress eat, stress cry, or stress sleep. I plan.

I'm determined to make quarantine as productive and positive of an experience as possible. So I made a Quarantine Vibin' list.

I organized it into four sections: Career (self-explanatory), Wellness (much-needed), Youth (I need to stay young), and Wholesome (I try).


1. CAREER

Prep for consulting.

Time to grind on mock interviews, resume and cover letter revisions, and mental math (I highly recommend the Mental Math app)! I want my brain to stay sharp during quarantine.

Watch Netflix in Chinese.

My Mandarin is really bad so I'm planning on watching Chinese dramas with English subtitles. After elementary school, I stopped working on my Chinese — and this is the perfect time to start learning again!


2. WELLNESS

Workout and do dance videos.

The goal is to workout one to one and a half hours a day and dance along with The Fitness Marshall (check out his YouTube here: https://www.youtube.com/user/TheFitnessMarshall).

Walk Sunny (my dog).

He deserves the best… and what better time to give it to him than now?

Do yoga.

Breathe in, breathe out.

Stretch.

I used to be a dancer, and it's time to get my flexibility back! Stretching right before bed also helps me have a deeper and more restful night.

Read.

What better time than now to cozy up with some good books? I'm planning on reading Option B, Becoming, and Girl Boss.

Sunbathe.

Originally I had "tan" on my list, but I'm trying to focus on enjoying the process rather than evaluating the result. In a time like this, it's important to stay as positive as possible.

Glow up my room.

Now that I basically live there...

Write letters to friends.

Taking a break from technology while staying in touch with friends… what could be better?

FaceTime friends.

FaceTime is the closest thing we have to meeting in person! I love FaceTiming friends while going on a walk — this helps me get moving when I'm feeling lazy!

Throw Netflix parties.

Who says you can't throw parties without social distancing? https://www.netflixparty.com/


3. YOUTH

Laugh more.

Laughing is a great stress reliever!

Learn how to twerk and yike.

Why not?

Sing more.

I was a singer in high school but I stopped singing when I entered college. After being quarantined for a few days, I realized that this is a great opportunity to get back into it. Once my friends started requesting songs, it evolved into a fun project!


4. WHOLESOME

Plan for Mother's Day.

Mother's Day 2020 is less than two months away! Since we're quarantined now, I have plenty of time to plan something special for my mom.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

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.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

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.
