I have been struggling to try and find things to do with all my free time. Just if you have to leave the house practice social distancing because even if you are confident in your immune system other people might not be so respect others personal space. Stay Healthy!

Watch Netflix

I watch a lot of Netflix. So far I have watched the whole Glee series, I am half way through Grey's Anatomy.

Some show/movie suggestions: I am not okay with this is really good. Marriage Story is excellent, The Fundamentals of caring, He's just not that into you, Self Made is a good series, Love Is Blind, New Girl, End of The Fxxxing World, Life As We Know it, Somone Great, To All The Boys I loved before and To All The Boys I loved before P.S I still love you.

Paint 

Painting is a good way to get your eyes off a computer/phone screen.

Knitting

I have made three scarves, I learned how to knit from YouTube. It has kept my hands busy while I watch Netflix.

Playing Solitaire/Doing Word Searches 

These games keep your mind fresh and focused on something.

Going for walks 

Just being outside, it always good for the mind and body. Fresh air will make you feel more alive.

Working out

Even though the gyms are closed that doesn't mean you have to stop working out. Keeping your body in good shape will help you feel better.

Communication 

Keeping up conversations with your friends and family will help you not feel alone.

Writing

Great way to channel your feelings during a time where you might not have someone to talk to about everything that's happening.

Meditate or watch a church service

Meditation can help with reducing anxiety and releasing stress.

Plant a Garden 

Doing some gardening can make your house look better and it might get you outside for a little while. Also a nice break for your couch and Netflix.

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.

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
