I recently had a COVID scare when one of my best friends' roommates tested positive. I was negative but still had to stay in my room for 10 days. Here is what I did and what I recommend to stay entertained.

Watch So Much Netflix

It is SO hard to find time to watch Netlfix. As much as I hated being in quarantine, I caught up on so many movies that I wanted to see, and shows that I wanted to finish. It helped me relax and also helped to pass the time.

I wasn't sick, so I wanted to find a way to get some exercise. I had a yoga mat in my apartment, and made sure I took this time to myself. It was good for my mental health.

Open A Book

Ok, I'm so bad with keeping up with reading. I used this time to finish an entire book! I felt so accomplished.

Get Ahead On Work

Journaling about my feelings and listening to good music always helps to boost my mood.

I hope these tips help you get through your quarantine as much as they helped me. Remember you are helping to keep everyone safe. Don't worry, you'll get through this!

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
