One of the best, most missed forms of amusement during this period of quarantine is visiting art museums.
I recently found peace during this stressful spring by baking some Bon Appétit chocolate chip cookies courtesy of Chef Chris Morocco, which received rave reviews from the friends I delivered them to. The freezer is now a friend and frozen veggies, fruit, bread and Eggo have become unexpected staples in my diet. I have also watched a fair amount of food-related content during my quarantine, inevitably exhausting Netflix’s supply of “The Great British Bake Off” and marveling at the Barefoot Contessa’s hilarious cocktail hour Cosmopolitan recipe on Instagram.
As an art history major, the places where I feel most at peace are art museums. What I find most fascinating when I visit a museum are the visitors. Museum goers are all united by the common goal of learning. Everyone stares at the work on the walls and is in their own little mental bubbles, learning something new.
As I’m writing this, my quarantined brain is wired to remind me that it has been five years since Zayn Malik left One Direction, my all-time favorite band. Malik went on to pursue a successful solo career and released two albums in 2016 and 2018.
It’s been a week since my sophomore year physically ended a little abruptly and I left Rutgers University—New Brunswick to engage in some social distancing with my sister in Indiana.

It was a rather lengthy and opinionated analysis of the Netflix hit “To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before,” written by a naive romantic-comedy fanatic who wore her rose-colored glasses with great pride. Since then, much has changed in terms of my worldview of romantic optimism, but there is still a lot to admire in this film.

The album peaked at #1 on the Billboard 200 Chart on Dec. 28 and is currently fourth on the chart.
