Things To Do During Quarantine

If you’re a procrastinator like me, there’s no time like the present to complete the tasks you’ve been pushing off.

We have ample time so no more excuses!

Here’s my to-do list and potential ideas to consider.

Revise my resume.  Making a career transition into a different occupation and a  different industry is an exciting challenge. It takes time to craft an exceptional resume you feel confident enough to send through 10-20 job application portals weekly.

Update your resume with your recent work experience and highlight your accomplishments. Check out The Muse for resume tips.

Learn how to style my natural hair.  As an impatient perfectionist, I’ve viewed hair maintenance as an arduous task my entire life. Now I’m forcing myself to learn how to both two-strand twist and cornrow. I told myself I would spend 15-30 minutes per day practicing twist techniques after watching tutorials. If you have any tips for beginners, comment below.

Finish reading one of several books I purchased.  One of the meetups I joined is reading Michelle Obama’s Becoming. They’re hosting a book discussion April 30th which forces me to finish the last half in 15 days.

Open that book you’ve been meaning to read. Reread your favorite book you haven’t read in awhile.

Clean my entire apartment. I am a semi-hoarder. There are several college textbooks and folders sitting in a large, black bin under my windowsill. I thought I’d use them in the future but never did.

Decluttering your home creates more space.

Start with one task. Whether it’s throwing away papers, worn accessories or unused items.

Choose what screenwriting project to finish first. There are several unfinished stories sitting under my desk dating back to 2013. My goal is to finish one this year.

If you have unfinished projects, revisit them. Look at where you left off and go from there. Start over if you want.
