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 a few things you can do to try and make the time pass by quicker:

— Take an online class. There are many free online courses of all sorts of subjects being offered right now from photography to step dancing.

— Learn how to cut hair. The Art of Shaving’s Master Barbers are giving tips for facial grooming and at-home haircuts.

— Find new Zoom backgrounds. With many meetings being done through Zoom, it might be nice to spice up the presentation a little by making it look like you’re on the beach or in the city with a new background.
