Staying Fit in Quarantine

So we are all in quarantine right now and a lot of us don’t really know what to do. Most of us are staying up super late and waking up super late, and our sleep schedules are way off. With that happening, it’s really hard to find motivation. We wake up sometime in the afternoon. […]

Podcast Recommendations

A step-by-step guide to baking a cake

Baking is one of those things that seems pretty daunting at first. But in my experience, baking is totally doable. Why bake? Well, the primary reason is to eat!
