Cooking – Nah, way too complicated

We know that cooking is something that lot of people find difficult to accomplish, but even more now. Being in self isolation it seems more necessary than ever.

Cooking actually isn’t super scientistic and even when you only know how to turn an oven on and put a little salt, that a good start! You can start somewhere super easy, for example pasta or pancakes or you can even bake. Baking is way more fun! And of course, cause it’s sweet…dah!

A website called Tasty makes cooking and baking receipts in a such a fun way and easy to understand. They have so many variety of things you can cook and bake and so much more. They even have now their own app, it’s even more easily accessible and you can save your favorite receipts.

Start cooking now! Really, if not now, then when! When you’re hungry of course.

It’s time to get organized!

How to organize computer

Now is the time, when to rearrange our computers, phones or whatever device you might have. For sure we have so many files and unnecessary screenshots, we actually don’t need in our devices. Firstly, when we look for something specific, it’s easier to find, when we have made correct folder. Second, well it all looks nicely arranged and visually perfect, when everything is organized. Right?

So, go over your folders and files and look what you don’t need anymore. After don’t forget to empty your bin too. Things you need and documents what are similar put to one folder. Categorize your folders, so later it’s easier to search for them. If you have lot of pictures, put them to folders.

Separate them by time, or by event, however you wish. Delete apps from your phone you don’t use but have been sitting there for a long time. Old messages, pictures. Make some GB’s for your phone.

And voilaa, now everything looks way more arranged and nice!

Cleaning fun? Noup

It might not be the most fun thing to do, when you could just watch your favorite TV show and let the cleaning be. But here’s the thing, wouldn’t it be way more better if you know that you have done a deep cleaning and now you don’t have to worry about it.

There is this thing – big Spring cleaning. Our houses need that too. So crab your broom and put on your favorite playlist and let’s get it!

Bathroom can be the starting point. You can even clean your kitchen, the shelves, the fridge. Name me something more satisfying than a good clean kitchen where you could practise your cooking, am I right? Or even more, you can clean your WHOLE house. After long hours of cleaning, you sit on a couch and admire what a good job you did and relax.

Then you could watch your favorite TV show, knowing in mind, that everything is sparkling clean.

Blue? Yellow? Drawings? Or all of them?

You see that plain white boring wall in your living room. You try to spice it up with pictures on the wall and couple of plants in the corner, but that still doesn’t do anything.

Idea. What about you give it some COLOR? Literally paint it or draw something there. In internet you can see so many cool videos how people remodel their living room walls or a bedroom.

Down below you can see, how in a easy way you can change the image of your room. If you have white wall, tape and wall paint, there you go. The result is actually really cool!

If you’re really good in drawing, then maybe something like this could be a good challenge for you. A beautiful painting on a wall.

And in the end it’s actually really satisfying thing to do. You put music on and paint. If sometimes you do it on paper, now you could do it on wall. After couple of days, you see the job you have done and the result is amazing!

We hope we gave you some ideas. If not, that’s okey too. Maybe you have some ideas, what to do durning these days while in self isolation and share them with others. Let us know and let’s be productive together!

Study Period – 6 months

At this school, you will find that learning is not first and foremost about listening to the teacher.

The school’s Program consists of a range of intense and spirited activities, theoretical studies and experiences that constitute the sum of learning and life processes carried through by a group of people who for a considerable period of time share a Program with each other that demands cooperation and efforts, and which at the same time is sprinkled with elements that are inspiring and also quite out of the ordinary.

Thus, learning will also take place through communication, deliberations, through working out your plan for learning and sticking to it, and putting to use what you learned, the methods you used, the ideas you got from it and the results you harvested from the training.

You will train yourself in being adventurers and survivors, living and traveling under very humble conditions, not using much money and always finding a way out by ingenuity, being smart and sticking together with your teammates.
