Bright Ideas While You’re Stuck Inside #6
COVID-19 continues to keep the majority of us stuck inside, and we all continue to face difficulties with work / life balance.
We’ve spent some more time searching for information that we hope you can benefit from or, at the very least, put a smile on your face.
So Bright, So Smart, Some School, Some Art
Get Harvard Educated
There’s going to be plenty of stories and gossip to compete with at your first post-lockdown party, though will any of them really be more impressive than emerging from quarantine with a Harvard education? We doubt it. During this quarantine Harvard is offering a suite of free courses that you can take online. Let the gossip commence my fellow Harvarders.
NJPAC In Da House
For all of you Yalies, and for those of us who simply prefer the performing arts, NJPAC would be a better source of education. You can achieve this goal with NJPAC in your living room. Though depending on where you typically use your computer it could be called anything really. NJPAC in the bathtub, NJPAC in the dark scary partially-finished basement, NJPAC on your neighbor’s WiFi, the options are bound only by your imagination and your property lines.
Out Of This World Education
NJPAC Jazz refresher lesson? Check. Harvard Bioethics certification? A breeze. Now that you’ve exhausted all of the educational resources available on Earth (that we know of), it’s time to set your sights on the biggest of pictures – the universe. NASA is providing free educational content for 24-hours a day, 7 days a week. That’s almost 168 hours of free content!
Fun Stuff To Keep You Sane
Unexpected Movie Masterpieces
Since we’re all going to be TV and movie buffs by the end of this quarantine you might as well get a few of these 30 underrated films under your belt. We’ll do the same and when this is all over we can plan on having a 75-minute discourse on why Babe: Pig In The City is one of the darkest cerebral takes on the balance between individual autonomy and adolescent anonymity. #HarvardEducated
Video Maker For Special Days & Special Hoorays
Celebrating birthdays, anniversaries, and other special events is a lot harder when you can’t leave your house or gather with friends and family. Though this doesn’t mean they can’t be as memorable. With VidDay you can send custom video celebrations/montages to whoever you please for only a few bucks!
As Benjamin Franklin once famously said, “All of my hopes and dreams revolve around live streams”. We couldn’t agree with you more Benny. This week, we bring you Birder’s Paradise, where as this is being written we are literally watching 3 baby eagles snuggle with one another. In fact, this website has a number of great live cams for a variety of animals, so if baby eagles aren’t your thing you can watch full-grown animals or rocks or other similarly less adorable options.
