Now that classes are online and you find yourself adjusting to this new lifestyle, do you feel restless? I sure do, but I realize this is the time for me to do all the things I had always said I would do, if I had more time. If you are a marvel fan like me, you have probably felt the urge to binge watch all the movies at some point. This quarantine season, I have been going through the list chronologically (and believe me you pick up on so many cool details):

  1. Captain America: The First Avenger

  2. Captain Marvel

  3. Iron Man

  4. Iron Man 2

  5. The Incredible Hulk

  6. Thor

  7. The Avengers

  8. Iron Man 3

  9. Thor: The Dark World

  10. Captain America: The Winter Soldier

  11. Guardians of the Galaxy

  12. Guardians of the Galaxy vol 2

  13. Avengers: Age of Ultron

  14. Ant-Man

  15. Captain America: Civil War

  16. Spider-Man: Homecoming

  17. Doctor Strange

  18. Black Panther

  19. Thor: Ragnarok

  20. Avengers: Infinity War

  21. Ant-Man and The Wasp

  22. Avengers: Endgame

  23. Spider-Man: Far From Home

Another thing I do when I have a lot of time on my hands is bake and cook. Here is a make your own chocolate truffles kit. I think we could all use a treat to sweeten up this time at home!

Although we can’t go out to shop, we can still make our wardrobe a bit brighter ;) Tie-dye is always in style, no matter what time of the year it is, you can try out this tie-dye DIY kit to convert some clothes you already have into trendy new pieces, without having to leave your home!

Getting bored of staring at empty walls? Well, here is a string art kit that could jazz up your room. Create your own theme and revamp your living/working space to feel more energized, I swear it makes a world of difference!

Decorate your notes and make them more eye-catching. Now that you have so much more time to devote to your notes, you might as well make them more interesting. Here are three things I do when note taking: Use:

  1. Different color pens and highlighters

  2. Printer paper instead of regular binder paper

  3. Use different fonts and sizes
