Keeping Busy Indoors

Ever feel like you are stuck indoors and don’t really know what to do with your time. This might be a real issue especially for International students (I know cause I am one), with winter break coming up. If you haven’t already made plans to visit relatives, friends in other cities and states, or simply don’t have a definite idea about what you are going to do.

Here’s a little list of things that you could easily do right at the school without spending a bunch.

  • Try your hand at Origami: 

    Take my word, this is therapeutic, satisfying and beautiful. Not only do you get to create a piece of art, but you get acquainted with a new skill. I suggest starting with basic things like butterfly, flower, dog, crab; moving on to slightly advance forms of bunny, crane, and then making way into complex models like elephants, pentagon rose, wolf and many more. There’s a endless ocean of tutorials from different artists on Youtube. However, I recommend ‘Jo Nakashima’, and ‘Camila Zeymer’ for the simple fact – that’s where I learnt from.

  •  Compose a Poem:

    This particular virtue was inculcated in me by my father. Coming up with two liners that rhyme to not just make plain sense but also have depth, contrast, and meaning. This at first may seem quite tedious, more so if it’s your first time. But hey..there’s always a first time! Give it a shot. Scribble. Rhyme. Be Silly. And you’ll have a creation of your own soon to treasure.

  • Cleanup your Closet: 

    Oh yes! That is one and the last on my list to things you can do indoors, low budget, and on-campus so far. Go through your stuff, discard stuff that is no more usable, donate things that you no longer use and are in decent condition, bundle things up (season-wise), color coordinate your wardrobe for easy and simple access, fold your cloths in a manner you please, just get up and organize! Doing so will not only bring back memories as you find little treasures in your stuff, but will also help you reacquaint with your own self. It will make you feel more clear-minded and organized.

    I hope this helps those who were looking for it. Keeping occupied, happy, and stable isn’t difficult if we have the right tools and direction to guide us.
