Social Distancing Activities

I think by now, we have realized that Social Distancing will be the new normal for at least a few more weeks. I have also hit a new stride with a new routine, of homework, writing, looking for a job, exercising and doing things around the house. But, eventually you have been productive enough for the day, or you have finished your to-do list and maybe it is time to try something fun and new… that’s kind of what my roommate and I were deciding too.

In the spirit of not trying to make all aspects of Social Distancing negative (because it is not), we decided we would also take this time to create some fun memories of activities that we normally would and would not have done. I thought I would share our list with you to help you come up with your own list…
