By INDIA KRUG – Remember what we all told ourselves when quarantine started? That we were going to deep clean our houses, get all of our work done, start a new project. Soon, we realized that was all a pipe dream and as the days in quarantine increased, so did our screen time. Well I’m here to give you 30 alternative activities to scrolling through social media.
Junior Kade Duffee shares, “I’ve been spending a lot of time learning new things like podcasting and securities trading. I’ve also been watching movies and shows I’ve been meaning to watch.”
Junior Allie Rutledge states, “I have been trying tons of new recipes during quarantine to pass the time! It’s something I love to do because it’s fun to make and try new foods.”
Senior Maddie Caroff says, “I’ve been going outside as much as possible! Even though it has been rather rainy I love going for runs in the woods or playing disc golf with my dad. If I have a lot of work I set up outside so I can still enjoy the nice weather.”
See? There are lots of other ways to spend your day that will be more interesting and gratifying. So get off Instagram, because I know you have Distance Learning work to catch up on. Then, maybe try something from this list!
