Activities While Staying Home

There’s nothing better than having a relaxing day at home but once the days start to add up people start to get stir crazy and the days become longer and longer. The students of Woodland Park High School have been doing many activities throughout these trying times. Things like music, video games,movies and television are what we have right now to keep us from going insane. Getting into a good show can mesmerize the many viewers that watch the show. Hours go by like minutes, some great shows that I would recommend watching would be the greats like The Sopranos or Breaking Bad. These shows are great because they are very long and there is a lot of drama and tension in these shows to keep the viewer engaged. Being lonely is also a huge downside of being stuck at home but if you have a great cast of characters on the television to keep you company then that eases some of the pain of staying at home. Some of the other activities that students have been partaking in would include playing video games. We asked students what games they have been playing to keep themselves busy. Jackson Schubloom stated “Lately I have been playing a lot of Madden and Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege. These games are great because they keep me focused and they are great for passing the time.” Day by day we go, almost everyone out there seems to be playing video games to keep them busy unlike what Jared Blair is doing, he stated that,“I like spending most of my time out on hikes with my girlfriend and friends, but mostly I stay at home watching netflix one of my favorite shows right now is Tiger king and that has kept me entertained for a good chunk of time.” Streaming Services are a savior for situations like this and while they may be taking advantage of a pandemic to sell their services they are still great for catching up on all the great movies and shows that everybody tells you to watch.  Keeping up with the world news is also very important, to see what problems are happening in the world and possibly to even know when the stay at home recommendation will be revoked matter of fact it was stated that on Sunday April 26th the stay at home order was lifted. There were a lot of pedestrians that lurked the streets after the order was removed. The moral of the story is that we should be using this time to stay home and keep doing nothing with our family. This is the best we can do right now and all wounds heal with time.
