Hello fellow COVID patients, we truly hope you aren’t feeling too sick and all have speedy recoveries. In the meantime, if you’re looking for something else to do, maybe wanting to switch it up from the routine of staring at your ceiling or avoiding the treacherous journey from your bed to your desk, we have the solutions for you. 

First of all, there’s nothing better about being sick than finally having the time to go on a perpetual television binge. Netflix’s “Are you still here?” can be a little humiliating, but let’s be honest, we’ve all been there. 

Ex-COVID patients reported some of their favorite quarantine titles, including You (Season 3), Behind Bars: The World’s Toughest Prisons, Maid, Cobra Kai, The Godfather, and Death to 2021 (timely, to say the least). 

The free time on your hands may also be the perfect opportunity to catch up on all the sleep you lost during first semester. Whether it’s taking countless naps or finally achieving a healthy sleep schedule, take advantage of the free time.

Since your infection started at the beginning of 2022! There is no better time to completely “reinvent yourself” than when you are locked in a room with no company except your own. Start journaling, learn how to paint, take up a new sport. 

This one is aimed especially at the seniors and juniors. Finish your FAFSA, study for your SAT, complete your graduation requirements. In this time where you have absolutely nothing required of you, finish the stack of assignments you’ve so blissfully ignored.

Although this isolation time may feel lonely and boring, there are so many ways you can safely enjoy the limitless alone time you have. While missing school may seem very stressful, remember how important it is to prioritize your health and recovery. Stay safe and stay healthy Bears!
