You can start by improving your vocabulary and grammar. Then, pick a topic that interests you. You can look up prompts or make up your own, whatever suits you! After that, you just have to start writing and rewriting until you end up with an essay that you actually like. In addition, maybe ask some of your friends or a professor to review it for you and give you feedback on how to improve!

Our world today is becoming increasingly technical, and learning to code is important for anyone who wants to maintain skills that are relevant to the continuously-evolving job market landscape.  

Learning to code will be very beneficial for you no matter which field you’re going into. You can use code to automate processes in finance, analyze data from the stock market, build websites for your start-up and so much more. 

Starting with learning to make websites is probably the best and most common approach. It’s relatively easy and fun, and you get to see the results of your work almost immediately. You can find a variety of courses for almost all programming languages on Coursera, edx, and Udacity. 

Skill 6 : Understand Personal Finance

Straying away from academic or work-related skills, budgeting and taxes is something you will most definitely have to learn as a part of adulting. So why not start now and spare yourself some stress? 

Learning to manage your money helps you stay secure and comfortable if you know how to do it well. You can read many articles online about different personal finance systems and choose which one fits you. You can learn about the tax system in your country. You can get a bullet journal and track your spendings. You have a lot to learn. 

If you find yourself intimidated along the way, remember this is normal and you’ll slowly figure it out. I believe in you. 

Skill 7 : Learn Basic Sewing and Stitching

You can simply follow along the basic techniques shown in youtube tutorials and do a little bit of practice until you get the hang of it. I promise you’ll thank me later. 

So those were the new skills everyone should acquire during the quarantine. I hope these help you overcome the insurmountable quarantine boredom while also learning skills that will actually come in handy!
