Things to do at home during quarantine

Quarantine may be a negative experience, but you can make it worth it. (Michelle Loria)

The possibility of being quarantined has existed since COVID-19 appeared.

Even though cases are going down, and everything seems to be going back to normal, the possibility of being quarantined still exists. To avoid boredom, here is a list of things you could do at home during quarantine. 

Before getting into your comfort zone, remember to check Schoology (or TEAMS if your teacher uses it instead of Schoology) and do all the work available. This will benefit you when going back to school because you will not have a pile of missing work.  

Knowing this, let’s get into the funny and relaxing stuff. 

  • Discover new hobbies: Hobbies are a wonderful way to spend time while learning something new. Some interesting hobbies include origami, photography, dancing, writing, singing, quilting, knitting, cooking, and gardening.   
  • Create content: Social media is always a great resource to get distracted. You can post pictures, phrases, videos, or even a writing sample. Get involved outside your house without leaving it.  
  • Clean your closet: A productive way to spend a tough time is by helping others in their difficult times. Check your closet for clothes you do not wear to donate when you get out of quarantine. This will put a smile on many strangers’ faces.   
  • Read a long book/ Watch a long movie or show: Everyone at some point has wanted to read a book, watch a show, or a movie, but has not had time to do it because it is too long. If this describes you, it is your chance to do it. Here are some recommendations for popular book series:    
  • Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin 
  • Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling  
  • Twilight by Stephenie Meyer  
  • Percy Jackson by Rick Riordan   
  • Vega Jane Series by David Baldacci  

Here are some shows and where to watch them:  

  • Once Upon a Time – Disney+  
  • Grey’s Anatomy – Netflix  
  • Criminal Minds – Netflix  
  • Boy Meets World – Disney+  
  • Modern Family – Amazon Prime  

Lastly, these are some movie series you could watch:  

  • Harry Potter – Some are PG, some are PG-13 
  • Fast and Furious – PG-13  
  • The Hunger Games – PG-13

Quarantine may not be a positive thing, but you can make it a worthwhile experience.
