9 Things I've Learned About My Boyfriend While Quarantined With Him

You don't really get to know your SO until you're quarantined with them.

9 Things I've Learned About My Boyfriend While Quarantined With Him

I've been in quarantine with my long-distance boyfriend for almost a month. What started out as my last spring break trip to visit him in Texas became a month-long quarantine. I have to admit, aside from not being able to go out and get a drink or have a nice dinner at our favorite restaurant, it's been a pretty good quarantine.

We've spent every day together, hanging out and sometimes I step on his toes, but we made the best of our inability to leave the house. I've learned a few new things about my boyfriend in the process, things I'd never noticed before since we'd never been able to spend so much time together. Here are nine things I've learned:

He does not sleep in, even on his days off from work.

"I get up every day at 6 a.m. I can't just lie in bed all day."

He can eat Chick-fil-A and Whataburger almost every day.

"You want Chick-fil-A?" he'll ask, after the third time of eating chicken sandwiches in a week.

He never gets bored of playing his Xbox.

"I'm done playing Call of Duty for now. I'm gonna switch to a game I've beaten multiple times already and play it again."

He uses two towels when he showers.

"One for my upper body and one for my lower body." (Apparently this is a joke, but I don't believe him.)

Intermittent fasting is his worst enemy.

"I only eat between 12 p.m. and 6 p.m." *initiating hangry-sequence*

He misses being able to go to the gym... a lot.

"I miss making the gains!" *proceeds to order sand bags to work out with.*

He hates mowing the lawn, more than anything in the world.

"I hate cutting the grass. It's the worst thing in the world. I hate it more than anything."

He wears a hat all the time, even when he gets out of the shower.

"My hair is crazy, babe. I have to wear a hat to keep it under control."

He started keeping extra napkins in his glove compartment, just for me.

"You always complain I don't have napkins. Well, not anymore!" *Opens glove compartment to reveal three napkins*

Holidays With the Family?

Should retail outlets close on holidays so their employees can be with their families?


For the past few years, having stores open on Thanksgiving has become a popular trend. The sales have started earlier on the day known as Gray Thursday. Now, the Mall of America has taken a bold stand and is closing its doors on Thanksgiving. They are very excited in giving the day back to their workers so they can spend time with their family.

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.
