Matthew McConaughey took his role as Austin, Texas’, “Minister of Culture” to relay a very important message to the city’s residents. In early April, the actor joined Mayor Steve Adler and Judge Sarah Eckhart to deliver a public service announcement. Mostly, he wanted to deter students from going on spring break this year.

To all of the teens and college students, McConaughey said, “I’m sorry you have these responsibilities on you at this time. It’s an unprecedented time in all our lives, but face the facts that they’re here. This is a science-fiction film no more. It’s reality, man. Deal with it.”

Sheeran has decided to take this time to work on his garden. Honestly, it’s not a bad way to spend your days, considering we’re not supposed to be near people. At least Sheeran can be close to nature and outside instead of staying cooped up in his house all day.

Self-isolation means making sure to keep your life as interesting as possible. Days can start to be redundant and boring, so it’s important to keep yourself on your toes even if that means scheduling each day out with a themed outfit.

Take Joey and Hunter King, for example. The sibling duo took a whiteboard calendar and marked each day with a different theme they have to dress up for. One Tuesday is “Turtleneck Tuesday,” while the following Wednesday is “What are thooossee Wednesday.” The good news is that you get to catch all of their wacky styles on their Instagram accounts!
