No time like the present, am I right? So if you’re like me you’re handling this current pandemic by keeping busy. To each their own, of course, but I’m less anxious when I’m keeping myself occupied. Not saying I’m about to write a novel or anything, but I am looking for new ways to keep myself entertained. So in the spirit of that, I called on some of my friends and favorite content creators to share posts of theirs that will help you learn a new skill or experience something new to you.
