The Top Ten Best Things To Do While Self-Quarantining

So, life is temporarily being put on pause and you're bored out of your mind? Hit my list below.


Since COVID-19 hit the earth, things have gotten pretty serious, pretty quickly. Our lives have been on pause lately, especially with everything being shut down. However, staying at home can get pretty old and boring, pretty quick in my opinion. We are human, and we crave socialization and being able to interact with our outside world. But, don't worry, I have come up with the best possible way to not become bored during this self-quarantining period in our lives as we go down in history for having experienced a pandemic in our college years. Check it out below, and hopefully, it will help settle your ongoing napping cycle.

1. Work Out

This can be your perfect excuse to get some at-home equipment and push yourself to your limits!! 2020 is all about being and staying healthy in style.

2. Take A Walk Outside

... or even better yet, go for a run. Enjoy the beautiful outdoors and nature this world has given us to explore!

3. Binge Watch A Show

This is the time to not guilt yourself about sitting on the couch and watching your favorite or a new tv-show or movie series. Time to self-isolate means being able to catch up on shows you missed during college season.

4. Re-Organize // Clean Your Room

There is no better feeling than re-arranging and cleaning up your room. Decluttering could also help with stress and anxiety levels!! Also, to top it off, lighting a candle hits different with a cleaned room.

5. Bake

This could be the time that you learn how to cook or bake something amazing- which is a perfect recipe to share later on!

6. Board Games

yes, this may be so 2010 but board games will always hit home and remind us of our childhood. Plus, it is a great way to bond and spend some time with your family while passing the time.

7. Read

I don't know about you guys, but I was a huge bookworm when I was a kid and had the time to be indulged by a good book. Since life hit me and I had to grow up, I never really had the time to sit down, relax, and enjoy a good book and now I do!!

8. Make A Photo Album

This could be a good time to ask your mom to pull out her scrapbooking stickers and paper and make your very own scrapbook full of college memories of you having a good time!! Plus, you can always add onto it later down the road and it will be great to look back on.

9. Facetime With Friends And Family

Not all of us are so lucky to have all of our friends and family be a couple minute drive or walk away, so phones for sure do come in handy.

10. Make A Playlist

I don't know about you, but I have a playlist for dang near every mood and event possible (for the most part). Having your music organized, it just hits different and you are prepared for every milestone and emotion possible. Trust me, you will not regret this one.

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.

The Mets And Me

They may be the worst sometimes, but this baseball team has given me more than I could ask for.

On September 3rd, 2001, a sea of children littered my home's navy-carpeted den to watch baseball during my dad's 40th birthday extravaganza. A baseball game flickered on the TV, and a red and blue bubble of a scoreboard sat in the bottom right corner of the screen. The New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies were in a wild game at Veterans' Stadium. As I, a five-year-old boy with a jumble of curly blonde hair, sat in the back of the kid clump, I wondered which team I should root for. After a long debate with myself, I decided that I should root for the team that's winning (duh). But, as the ninth inning rolled around with the Phils maintaining a 7-5 lead, some magic occurred. The Mets put up five runs in one frame, stunning the Phillie fans in the room and winning the game 10-7.
