It’s spring 2020 and instead of enjoying the beautiful weather, traveling, and spending your time with friends and family you are stuck at home for who knows how long. It’s stressful, annoying, and simply awful, yet it is the only way to save the world. After all, when would we have another opportunity to save the world and become heroes by laying on our couches?
Certainly, self-isolation is extremely boring for lots of people, including me, but there is nothing we can do about it except for obeying. Thus, we have to figure out how to make these days beneficial for us and a little bit more fun. So let us start then, shall we?
First things first, let us figure out the cause of our struggles as well as the ways to avoid it. Well, the cause is obviously a brand-new disease that appeared at the end of 2019 known as COVID-19 or coronavirus. The disease causes severe pneumonia, which eventually leads to the death of those patients, whose immune system is not capable of fighting the virus. Thus, it is believed, that the virus is extremely dangerous for elderly people and people with chronic illnesses such as diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, cancer, etc. At the same time, the mortality rate of coronavirus is relatively low, which is approximately 5%.
What makes this virus so dangerous is the fact that it is highly contagious and spreads very rapidly. For instance, as for 15 April, over 2 million people got the disease, more than 485K people recovered and over 126K died. The main reason why it spreads so fast is because this virus is new and people do not have an immunity to it. For example, fly is not that dangerous for us because most people already had it (and more than once), which means that our bodies know how to react and produce the right antibodies in order to recover as soon as possible. Besides, there is a vaccine against flu and some people are immune to it because they have been vaccinated. Apart from that, the incubation period of flu is only one day, so you get sick the next day after you’ve been contaminated. In the case of COVID-19, you might have the virus for at least five days before you get the symptoms and during this time you might infect hundreds of people without even knowing it.
The virus’s high contamination rates eventually lead to the collapse of the healthcare system, which is simply not able to cure that many patients at the same time. Thus, without proper treatment and care, many of those who do not belong to the risk groups (young and healthy) might die as well. Plus, there is no treatment or vaccine for it yet, which makes the recovery process more complex and longer. This is why the disease is so dangerous and this is why we are stuck at home.
To sum up, you have to keep in mind the following: the coronavirus is highly contagious, it is deadly for particular groups of people, and there is no treatment or vaccine for it. So the only thing that we can do now is to stay at home and follow the WHO and your local authorities recommendations.
Well, here is a little guide from the World Health Organization on how to protect yourself during the pandemic:
Obviously, staying at home is super boring, especially when the weather outside is so nice but you cannot do anything about it, so you have to come up with some other ways to keep yourself busy these days. Well, surely I am going to help you with that, so here are some ideas that came to my mind:
Exercise at home;
Well, the list is rather long, but today I’m going to concentrate on the two last items from it, which are making t-shirts and online shopping. These two seem to be the most fun to me at the moment, so without further ado, let’s dive in.
T-shirt is the very item of clothing that pretty much everybody has and wears almost every day. Not only are t-shirts comfy but also rather stylish and quite often represent people’s beliefs and interests. Originally, t-shirts were items of underwear. Made of soft material and rather comfortable, t-shirts were worn as undergarments by the U.S. Navy since the beginning of the 20th century.
The undergarment started to gain its popularity after World War II when soldiers who returned home from the war started casually wearing their uniforms. However, the real glory came to this item of closing in the 1950s after Marlon Brando wore one in “A Streetcar Named Desire.” Since then t-shirts have officially become a stylish item of closing that we know today.
Nowadays, t-shirts are rather popular in merchandise since they are easy and inexpensive to make. Moreover, they are a means of self-expression since thousands of teenagers and young adults all over the world proudly wear t-shirts, which feature their favorite bands, movies, comic books, and TV series. For instance, such companies as Hot Topic are famous for their tees that feature pretty much every significant for the popular culture thing starting from Disney and finishing with metal bands.
In my opinion, a tee with your favorite band, a comic book character, or simply with a fun inscription is a pretty cool and stylish way of expressing yourself. At least this is how I prefer to express my personality and many people all over the world would definitely agree with me. So if you still don’t know how to express your bright personality, why don’t you start with dope tee?
Certainly, when it comes to making a standout and you’ve chosen to do it with the help of a t-shirt, you might want to try and make one on your own. So let’s figure out how do you do that.
In fact, there are two ways to create your own one-of-a-kind tee. The first one is cheap, not very easy, and rather fun. So you basically get a white t-shirt, some painting brushes, fabric dye and markers from Amazon, and simply start painting right on your tee. Of course, this way is for those of you who can draw and have at least a little bit of experience in painting because it’s quite challenging and you might not get what you wanted at your first try. Yet this way is rather exciting and you’ll definitely have lots of fun, which means that it is a perfect way to kill some time during the quarantine. However, note that such a t-shirt might not survive multiple washings. At the same time, everything depends on the fabric dye you use, professional ones should not fade after the first washing.
Another way to create a fancy and unique tee is much easier yet might be a little bit more expensive and less fun. Using this method, you have to find a digital image or inscription or just make one by yourself and place an order on a website such as Uber Prints, and in a couple of days, your lovely tee will arrive. Such a t-shirt is surely going to be of nice quality, so you shouldn’t be afraid of washing it as many times as you need, but the process of creation is not going to be as exciting as painting it yourself.
Well, pick the method you liked the best and make your tee today. In case, you don’t feel like creating anything, you can simply buy a fancy t-shirt online from Amazon or Hot Topic.
