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.

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?

The Girlfriend's Guide to College

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?

Up until last week, I always had a major. I was an international business major, finance major, psych major on the pre-medicine track… and now (finally) I am exactly where I should have been when I started college: undecided. I think there is too much pressure as a high school student to have a designated path about what you want to study, be when you 'grow up' and essentially spend the rest of your life doing. As an 18-year-old, I really feel like I tried to pin myself down to a major so that I had a set path to follow and something to look towards. This is probably very conventional and I know tons of people at school who have their minds made up about what they want to study.

Life Is Messy

Finding who you are in your 20s

Life Is Messy

I am 25 years old and just now learning who I am. When I separated from my husband I was terrified of what would follow. I did not know who I was outside of a relationship, nor did I know how to be on my own. It was scary, and I was so lost. I spent months discovering who I was, and what I wanted to be. I am still searching as I believe we never truly know who we are even when we "grow up". I came to the realization that I had been hiding a part of myself for my entire life. Coming out was not easy, growing up in the church made it scary, and hard. I was told growing up that being anything but straight was such a sin, and that i would spent my life in hell because of it. I came out to my parents when I was 25 years old. I picked up the phone and called my mom, and uttered the words "I'm queer" through tears. I knew my parents would be supportive, but that didn't make it any easier for me to vulnerable and raw. Since then, I have slowly started being more authentic in who I am, and not hide parts of me just because of people's shitty opinions.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.
