10 New Things You Can Teach Your Self In Quarantine

Sunday, April 26, 2020

I remember I always wanted to learn how to french braid. I loved seeing all these fancy braid designs with jewels and glitter. Then I would become really sad because I would have to go to a braid bar somewhere in order for me to get my braid fix. I just wanted to be able to get my bangs out of my face and not have to pin them up.

During quarantine, I told myself this was going to change. I had a little extra time in the morning since my commute was cut, and I was going to take that time to learn how to french brain my hair. It took me a couple days, and a few sore arms from keeping my hands in the hair, but NOW I can braid my hair.

This was such an exciting feeling that now I have a learning craving that I want to meet. Here I have compiled a list of videos and blog posts that you can check out that will teach you something.

Anything goes on this page, so feel free to scroll through and find one you like.

French Braid Your Own Hair

If you've reached this point you know that I was ecstatic when I taught myself how to french braid my hair, and I want you to be to. I used a combination of videos and one tip that really helped was to look at left-handed braiders. It seemed to reverse everything the right-handed braiders were doing and made it easier for me to understand.

I'll let Jenny D take it from here.

Learn to Take Care of Your Plant That Keeps Dying

I think, secretly, we all want to have a green thumb of sorts. We want to be good moms and dads to our plant babies, but for some reason, they just won't grow. Is it our fault, maybe. Is it the environment's fault, defaulting to it being our fault? Also, maybe. Let's learn to be better plant parents and get our green baby growin'!

Learn a New Language

Make Your Own Rice Milk!

The days of picking between whole milk, skim, milk, or 2% are long gone. The endless options we have now could easily take up an aisle at the supermarket. However, the prices on them can be a little more than what we would typically like to pay for a dairy-free product. Making your own rice milk can be an extremely easy and cost-effective way to add in a new type of milk into your diet and keep your checkbook balanced (do people still do that?).

Even if one of these lessons was not right for you, I hope you feel encouraged and motivated to learn something new! What is something you have been working on? ANy fun skills you have taught yourself?
