January 6, 2021

While most people are still going through lockdown during the worldwide pandemic, there are many things people have been doing since the very first day of quarantine. These activities include making bread, baking, writing a book, going outdoors, and so much more. Here is some motivation to keep your spirits high and look on the bright side during these unprecedented times. 

Those who have made the most of this quarantine have gone all out. Such as Amy Schumer releasing her new show from the beginning of lockdown, Amy Schumer Learns to Cook.”Comedian and actress Amy Schumer and husband, Chef Chris Fischer, are quarantined on Martha’s Vineyard, MA, with their baby Gene. Fisher prepares meals from their pantry with Schumer’s help, who isn’t great in the kitchen but can mix up a tremendous cocktail-States on Food Network.

Other celebrities such as Seth Rogan, Lauren Conrad, Martha Stewart, Josh Gates, Taylor Swift, and many more have taken lockdown to the next level. Rogan gained new skills and knowledge to begin selling his pottery and ceramics during the pandemic, and Conrad began to cultivate a garden with fruits and vegetables galore. 

Stewart created a new show, Martha Knows Best, starring herself. She talks about her tips and tricks regarding household chores and interviews with top celebrities to learn how to make their garden the best it can be.

On Gate’s new show, The Josh Gates Tonight Show, Gates interviews celebrities worldwide with questions, comments, and more about their time in the spotlight, whether that’s acting in movies, quarantine activities, or hobbies– you name it.

Swift utilized her time in lockdown and released two new surprise albums. These albums received excellent reviews, such as the album she wrote, where fans could not believe how beautifully written and meaningful the song truly is. ‘epiphany’ is the 13th track on Folklore where Taylor pays tribute to her grandfather — while ‘Marjorie’ is also the 13th track on her new album Evermore, which is the name of her grandmother-Tweeted at TSwiftNews.” While also has become many people’s new go-to song for 2021, as Swift becomes a new figure and idol to all her fans during these challenging times. 

Despite all this, you don’t have to be a celebrity to be making the most of the pandemic. These celebrities have given many people and students ideas of making the most through tough times. For example, Most people and students have begun baking bread, writing stories, starting small businesses, gardening, going outdoors, learning a new language, and even becoming Tik-Tok famous.
