9 New Things To Try With Your S.O. In Quarantine That'll Actually Make Staying Inside More Fun

Social distancing has led to a lot of couples staying in quarantine together, but doing the same thing all day, every day can get pretty monotonous — and boring. So, to help spice up your co-quarantine life for you and your boo, here are 9 things to try together to break out of your routine.

Try a couple workout

There are a lot of fun couple workouts on YouTube that are free. A couple workout could be fun whether you and your boyfriend/girlfriend are prepping for the Olympics or just trying to have a laugh while burning off those tater tots.

Grow a plant together

You and your significant other growing plants together would be a great bonding experience! You could start with just one plant inside or start a whole garden outside. Checking in on your plants is a good way to break up the day when time seems to stand still for everything else in quarantine.

Try a Harry Potter virtual escape room

I love escape rooms, so this virtual Harry Potter Escape Room was fun to try. While it's not exactly like a normal escape room, it's still a good 20 minutes of fun with your partner.

Make a shared Pinterest board

Having a Pinterest board together could give you both a place to put things you want the other one to see. This could include activities you want to do together, memes, or anything else Pinterest has to offer. You both can pin things separately and look at the board when you have time. This could be good if you have differing work schedules.

Try a new recipe

Now could be the best time to make a fun dish that you have never had time to try. We are all stuck inside anyway, so you could both find recipes to try on your Pinterest board and get cooking your next Gordon Ramsey meal.

Get artistic

Another great use for your Pinterest board could be finding art projects to do together. There are so many possibilities ranging from guided canvas painting to making towel animals that you see on Carnival cruises.

Have a Nerf gun fight

Being in quarantine with your significant other could be getting a little tense being with them for 24 hours a day. Having a Nerf gun fight could be a fun stress reliever! To add a whole other level of fun, you could both make blanket forts to use in your epic Nerf gun battle.

Read a book together

Reading the same book, especially a murder mystery to embrace your inner Sherlock Holmes, would allow you to do something separately and then come back and talk about it. If you prefer audiobooks, Audible has a first month free trial that could be great to utilize while in quarantine.

Have a virtual double date playing games

Using Zoom to screen share a party game from Jackbox with another couple or just your friends could be a great pass time. Another option would be to play Pictionary with a free website called Skribbl while Facetiming with other people on another device.

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.
