Well, it happened. Winter storm Stella hit Western New York. Both my university and the school that I work at were on the list of 430+ closed for a snow day *yikes*. I knew before I went to bed last night so, thankfully, I got to sleep in a little bit this morning! When I woke up, I did not expect it to be bad but let me tell you, it has not stopped snowing. I mean, this is literally what I see right now:
So, with no stopping in sight anytime soon for us peeps being hit by this storm, here’s a few things you can do to cure your boredom!
- Binge watch Netflix or Hulu. Today, I actually got to catch up on some of my shows! And in a big way! I was able to watch the entire new second season of the Netflix original, Love. I also made some major progress on my newest obsession, The Mindy Project, on Hulu. There is nothing better [at least to me] than cozying up on the couch with a bunch of blankets and a hot cup of coffee.
- Complete, or get ahead, on assignments. In grad school, I constantly find myself ‘behind’ on my work. I use the term behind very loosely because I am never actually behind, it just feels that way because of all the work that constantly gets piled on day in and day out. Take a day like today with no interruptions and crank out some A+ work! And if you’re all caught up, nothing better than getting ahead!
- Organize. It seems like the only time I ever get the motivation to organize my makeup, my clothes, or my room in general, is when I am absolutely bored out of my skull. Use this time wisely!
- Online shopping. If you got it, flaunt it. Money, that is. Why not take some of this extra time to treat yourself?! You’ve been working hard. Maybe it’s time you actually bought yourself that top or that eyeshadow palette you’ve been swooning over for weeks! And a major perk of online shopping, you don’t even have to leave the warmth of your own bed!
- Bake something sweet or cook a nice dinner. If your significant other, roommate, or BFF wasn’t one of the lucky ones to have today off, I’m sure walking into a nice treat like a hot home cooked meal, or a delicious dessert will perk them up after trekking through the snow all day!
What are some ways you cure your boredom on days like today?! xoxo.
P.S. Anyone at work, out and about, traveling, etc. today, please stay safe!
