So- quarantine is obviously a blow.

So- quarantine is obviously a blow.

So- quarantine is obviously a blow. Being a relatively social person it’s been frustrating to not be able to go talk to my friends. I know a lot of other people feel that way.

So luckily for you I have compiled a list of things for my fellow extroverts to do while at home- also for my beloved introverts who are running out of things to do, so without further ado…

1.) Paint!

-I love painting, I think it’s one of my favorite mediums. Lately I’ve been painting on jeans and it’s been so great to help take my mind off things. If you’ve never painted on clothing before I suggest you use something old or clothing you wouldn’t mind getting ruined.

2.) Try on new outfits

-Like…why not? No ones going to see you if it looks bad, plus with all the given free time you can really get a better idea of what you want your closet or aesthetic to look like.

3.) Online window shop

-Now, this is how I shop because I’m officially broúqe (that’s how el French say broke ). Do some online shopping and take screenshots of the clothes you want. You can add them on a folder in your phone and then when quarantine is over you can go out and buy them!

4.) L I S T E N  T O  N E W  M U S I C

-My personal favorite musicians include, BTS, Cavetown and Conan Gray. My spectrum of music is pretty diverse. I listen from everything to K-Pop and J-Rock to Indie and LoFi. Music can really put you in the mood to do just about anything, so I suggest broadening your musical spectrum.

5.) Do your school work

-We both know you have online schooling, so before you do any of the fun stuff I just suggested go turn in your work!

Welp, thank you for listening to my Ted Talk, my name is Emily and have a good day.
