7 Activities For Quarantine That  Aren't Binging T.V.

Not that there's anything wrong with binging T.V.- we're all doing it!

7 Activities For Quarantine That  Aren't Binging T.V.

Lets be honest, we all see those super intense quarantine fitness challenges or whatever challenge you happen to see on your feed and most of us just scroll on by! Most days alot of time is occupied for most people by an increase in social media use and television consumption. After all, now is the perfect time to start a show that you've always wanted to checkout but never got around to. Some days, however,, one finds themselves in the mood to do something other than T.V, but maybe your not sure what to do! Here are some things that I've found myself doing or seen other people doing to occupy time!

1. Diamond paintings 

Super fun, you can get them on Amazon. It's basically a paint-by-number but with small, colored diamonds!

2. Hiking

An active, socially distanced activity that gets you outside for a bit!

3. Driving

Sometimes you just need 30 minutes out of the house, even if its driving nowhere. Bonus tip if you can blast your music.

4. Trying new recipes

We all love to eat during quarantine- why not up your cooking skills.

5. Painting

You can get a set of ten canvases on amazon for pretty cheap. Eve if you're not an artist ( I'm certainly no picasso) it can be fun to sit outside with some music and painy.

6. Reading

Here me out... I feel like we all used to read for fun and then school sucked the life out of us. Well now's our time! Pick up those murder mysteries ladies!

7. Spend time with your pets!

Just chill with them or take them for a walk! I'm sure they love having their humans home!

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

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.

I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

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.
