Oh what to do

With no end seemingly in sight as of right now for this pandemic you may be running out of things to do to keep yourself busy while practicing social distancing. Here are few things you can do to try and make the time pass by quicker:

— Complete a puzzle: The more pieces the better! Feeling extra saucy? Take on a Rubik’s Cube. More of a word person? Crossword puzzle!

— Start a journal or blog. Sure, it can be about the coronavirus, but it could also be about a specific interest from chess to cheese.

— Write poetry. Perhaps you can craft a haiku for Mother’s Day, or something without a specific structure. Just try it!

— Write actual letters to family and friends. After that? Write thank-you notes to service people who you remember went out of their way for you.

— Put on a soap opera. Mute the sound. Create your own dialogue.
