Things to do During COVID-19

  • Do a puzzle.  
  • Learn guitar.  The Fender Guitar Company is offering free lessons online for 3 months.
  • Keep up or get ahead on your required reading. Lots of classics are in the public domain and so are free online.
    A few of the best websites:
  • Go full Kondo on your room
  • Learn to make dinner for your family. Countless videos on YouTube from terrific cooks can show you all the basics. Cooking is a life skill every person should know. You can’t live on cup noodles for the rest of your life.

    Make your mom happy. Empty the Tupperware drawer onto a clean surface. Match all the lids. Throw away any lids that don’t have a match. Return organized Tupperware to drawer. Pat yourself on the back.

    If you have a younger sibling or two, or three, spend some quality time with them. Play their favorite board game, watch a movie that they want, build some Legos together. Hopefully give them some positive memories from this mess.
  • Meditate Meditate or Meditate.  
  • What are other Teens saying?
