Things to do during the Caronavirus outbreak

Everyone is now stuck at home because of this Coronavirus outbreak and it is very easy to get bored after doing the same things every single day. So, I am going to give you some ideas on what you can do now that you are stuck at home with your family.

Things to do during the Caronavirus outbreak

Here are 5 things that you can do at home either by yourself or with your family:

1. Binge watch on Netflix


Since it is Spring Break, treat yourself by giving your brain a relaxing break by hopping on Netflix. Some great shows are: The Vampire Diaries, Supernatural, Grey's Anatomy, You, and Sherlock. Whatever genre you choose, make sure you sit back and enjoy this extra free-time that you've been given.

2. Do a puzzle


As boring as it may sound, a puzzle is a good way to get your brain to think. So before you binge watch your favorite Netflix show, pick out a puzzle in your house and work on it for an hour or so. Once you get started, you won't be able to stop.

3. Knock out the school stuff

online school

Even though we may not be on campus, our teachers have somehow still manage to make us feel like we are still in school. So instead of waiting for the last minute like we always do, use all this extra time that we have and knock the homework out. Once you get it out of the way, you can chill and do whatever you want.

4. Get cleaning

Since we've been on campus for the past semester and haven't been home at all, dust has started to collect on everything in our rooms. So instead of just looking at it and saying you'll do it later, turn on some of your favorite tunes and crank it out. Look at it as getting spring cleaning over and done with.

5. Family time

We all know that with COVID-19 going on we aren't allowed to leave our house and are stuck with everyone in the house till who knows how long. So instead of locking yourself in your room and making the situation worse, try to make it better. Have dinner with your family, play board games, have family movie night, or even go on a walk around your neighborhood (but don't forget at least 6 feet apart from strangers). If you're gonna be stuck with your family, you might as well make the most of it.

Holidays With the Family?

Should retail outlets close on holidays so their employees can be with their families?


For the past few years, having stores open on Thanksgiving has become a popular trend. The sales have started earlier on the day known as Gray Thursday. Now, the Mall of America has taken a bold stand and is closing its doors on Thanksgiving. They are very excited in giving the day back to their workers so they can spend time with their family.

Black Friday: Explained

Time to question this unofficial corporate holiday.

On a personal level, Black Friday has always confused me. Everyone just ate a ton and spent all day with their families—why would we want to go out and vigorously shop, fighting crowds? I totally see why other people want to go do it, but I’ve never quite understood the concept myself. While I’ve been Black Friday shopping once or twice, I don’t get that excited about it unless it’s an opportunity to spend time with family or friends. Don’t get me wrong; I am the queen of bargains. Still, I never seem to have the energy to go out into the jungle of shoppers early the day after Thanksgiving, or even immediately after Thanksgiving dinner. Many people, though—including my loved ones—are enthusiastic about Black Friday shopping, and it seems most other Americans are the same way. So, it’s worth looking at the reasons for this commercially-driven, unofficial American holiday.

#OptOutside This Black Friday

I am opting to go outside this Black Friday, and I hope you do so as well.

Ross Woodhall

The day after Thanksgiving has always been regarded by many as the beginning of the Christmas season. While not a federal holiday, many people take off work, spend time at home with their families, and enjoy the beginning of the holiday season. This Friday off turned into a prime opportunity to begin the never-ending chore of Christmas shopping. Soon it became one of the busiest shopping days a year, which companies capitalized on by bringing the best deals of the year to this day we know as Black Friday.
