This global pandemic can be unsettling and for many, this means you're stuck at home. While self-quarantining is important, and vital to conquering this virus, it can seem impossible to fill your days at home. Whether you're a displaced student or employee, here are fifteen activities to keep you busy this quarantine season.

1. Make a journal.

if you already have a journal, make time each day to write down your thoughts and talk things out. If you've never journaled before, considerthis the time to break out a new notebook and dump your thoughts onto paper.

2. Foster a pet.

If you're stuck at home all day for a couple weeks, why not consider a short-term foster? You might end up meeting a forever best friend.

3. Catch up on your favorite shows with your friends.

Netflix has this great new feature where you can have a watch party and chat in real time. Take advantage and have a movie party without coming out of quarantine.

4. Organize your junk drawer.

Everybody has one, don't play coy. You know as well as I do that it's high time to get things in order.

5. Read that book you never have time for.

You know the one. It's been siting by your bed for weeks. Now is the perfect time to crack it open and dive into an escape from reality.

6. Video Chat with your friends. 

Odds are, they're missing you too. give them a call and quarantine together apart.

7. Learn to cook.

Whether you're an accomplished chef or just a beginner, you can always learn something new when it comes to cooking.

8. Break out those board games.

If you're one of the lucky ones who have a roommate or family to quarantine with, this can be a great way to relieve some stress. If you're quarantining alone, video chat with someone else who is a solo quarantine and play hangman, tic tac toe, or charades just to name a few.

9. Watch a concert.

Many artists are live-streaming concerts during this time of quarantine. Here's a link to a complete list:


10. Catch a brand new movie on demand.

F9, A Quiet place Part Two, Birds of Prey, and many more are choosing to release on demand so you don't have to miss a thing.

Holidays With A Small Family

I wouldn't trade what we have for the world.

Matt Johnsn

When I was a kid I always went to my grandparents house whenever we celebrated any sort of holiday. We were a decently sized family and it was always a blessing to be in their house and surrounded by love during the holiday season. However, that all changed when my grandfather passed away and my grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. The family then began to drift apart and life went on, and we ended up all celebrating our own holidays with other family members.

Safe Spaces Or Regressive Spaces?

Turns out shielding yourself from ideas can be detrimental to your ability to learn


College is a place for people who want to learn. That is the primary function of any academic institution. Its purpose is not to coddle us, nor should the community always be in agreement with us. We are supposed to surround ourselves with a variety of viewpoints that challenge us to learn, not the same repetitive points of view that make us happy.

Last week my twitter feed was full of exclamations of how excited people were that our local mall, Westmoreland Mall would be closed on Thanksgiving Day this year. For those who work during the busy holiday days and hours, a celebration was in order. For the die-hard deal finders and shoppers though, they didn’t seem very happy.

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

There's been a recent boom in the popularity of vintage style looks and up-cycling thrifted finds to sell at, usually, an outrageous price. Is this ethical? Or does it defeat the whole purpose of thrifting in the first place?

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

One day, I was scrolling through Twitter and came across a tweet about upper-middle-class class people thrift shopping. I personally was against the up cycling/re-selling trend because I thought it to be greedy. Then, I began to see more and more tweets, and then stated to see ones about those who buy thrifted, name brand items and sell them for what they're actually worth instead of the very low price they got them for.
