Write a story or keep a journal about quarantine experience:
I bet you could write an amazing story about your experiences with quarantine and hybrid/remote learning. I recommend writing a story or journaling about your experience at some point, even if it is not today. I promise, years from now when you read it again, you’ll be happy that you did! I know this because I wrote in a journal every day for the 4 months I studied abroad in Italy. I go back to read it from time to time and it brings me back to so many memories.

Write a song parody to the tune of your favorite song
There have been many song parodies circulating around social media. A song parody is a copy of a well-known song that usually involves keeping the tune, but changing the lyrics. Most song parodies are meant to be funny. Weird Al Yankovic is known for his parodies!
Try writing your own parody. It can be about the quarantine, social distancing, ways to stay safe, remote learning, or about ANYTHING that you want! It doesn’t have to be about quarantine at all!
