Go to bed by midnight and wake up early in the morning at 9 A.M. All those all nighters and early morning bedtimes at university isn't doing great things to your memory. Refresh your brain over this break and sleep at a proper time every night and you will feel extra fresh during the morning. Your memory will thank you later.

Be more knowledgeable about your faith

Whether it is Christianity, Islam, Buddhism or any religion, being at home is a great time to relearn and read more religious text, helping you reinstill important values and beliefs into your life. Keep those affected with the virus in mind and come out of the crisis with a better relationship with your religion and with the people around you.

Decide a tattoo that you really want on yourself

Chances are, you probably are considering getting a tattoo, or at least one in the next couple of years. Do you want something creative and personal, or just something that is surface level? Now is a great time to ponder about a lifetime symbol on your own skin.

Brainstorm a dedicated hobby that you want to pursue

You've been used to university's hustle and bustle and the truth of the matter is, you didn't get to truly spend time with a hobby that you loved. Now is the time to think about something that you truly want to dedicate part of yourself to that gives your life joy and meaning. Push aside Netflix and spend time on providing value to your life.

Become good at Excel, photoshop, or video editing

Watch a documentary about a topic that you are truly interested in

When was the last time you watched a documentary outside of school? Chances are, that's low. Whether it be sneakers, snowboarding, astronomy or food, take time to dig deeper into your niche. You'll have more to say during conversations and be even more passionate about your area of interest. Learning never stops.

Every Track On Ariana Grande's 'Positions' Album Ranked

Ariana Grande has achieved major success with her new album and we're ranking every track.

11737

Ariana Grande surprised fans in October, tweeting that her new album was being released. What followed was yet another number one peak on the Billboard 200 albums chart. The album's title track and lead single, "Positions," also hit number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

With "Positions," Grande took a much more light-hearted approach than the confessional nature of its predecessor, "Thank U, Next." It was a welcome and refreshing change of pace. Now that the album has been out for a solid month, it's the perfect time to see how the songs rank.

Let me just say, first and foremost, happy Thanksgiving! This holiday is known as a time for families to get together, to be thankful for the blessings in our lives, and to dig into a lot of very delicious food that you'll be having as leftovers for the next week. However, this family time is certainly not without downsides, as we are forced to confront certain family members on matters that should best be left out of Thanksgiving discussion, and in my case, this happens to be my father, who is the only republican in our family (that I know of).

(FYI: Since I still live with my dad, it's not just Thanksgiving when I'm forced to listen to him talk about politics, as I had gotten a taste of where he stands just from earlier this year alone.)

I have had many different types of baked mac and cheese and most are dry. I do not like a dry mac and cheese, it just does not seem appealing to me. If you like the creamy cheesy essence of mac and cheese, look no further, this recipe is for you.
