Things To Do While You Are Stuck At Home

Okay, so I'm cooped up inside the house, no school because of the COVID-19 Coronavirus. And I know a lot of things are shut down, everything is closed, people have to stay home. But you can still be active and do things. I encourage you to go outside every day, get some sunshine. I am always in my backyard, playing with my brother, and that helps a lot. And it is also an opportunity to learn something new. I am trying to pick up new chords on my guitar, for Stairway to Heaven, and I've been improving my sprint time. So since a lot of us are bored, it is time to pick up a new project, something to do. Here are some websites that can help, because doing something new can be very beneficial, so I thought I would add this post.
