Coronavirus has had a serious impact on our world.

From the economy to the way we socialize, everything is different these days. So, if you're back in school this fall and finding it hard to socialize because of all the new rules and regulations, don't worry because you are most definitely not alone.

Need some tips? Keep reading for ways to be social at school during the days of COVID-19.

Start a Club

If you're a hybrid student or you're back at school full time, we're sure it feels pretty weird to be walking around wearing a mask all day, not sure if you spotted a friend or a stranger. In order to expand your horizons, why not start a club, or even join an existing one? Depending on what your hobbies and interests are, we're sure there's a place for you to let yourself shine, along with like-minded people! Whether it's a club for history, comic books, makeup or anything in between, we urge you to find a creative outlet.

Join a Virtual Community

When we say to join a virtual community, we aren't necessarily talking about getting on yet again another Zoom call. No, we're thinking more along the lines of something interactive, like a video game! Here at Sweety High, we're very up-to-date with all the latest and greatest games, so ask some fellow classmates, friends or even strangers if they'd be interested in playing with you sometime. And the best part? You can communicate with them while playing from the comfort of your own couch. It's a total win-win. If games aren't for you, try searching for a Facebook group with similar interests and start from there!

 

Stick to a Friend "Bubble"

If you're worried about maintaining social distancing and limiting your actual hours of interaction with other people, there are plenty of ways around it. Of course, the best way would be to avoid people at all costs, but, unfortunately, that's just not the type of thing we can all really do. We'd recommend sticking to a friend "bubble," meaning you only interact with a certain amount of people together. If you all agree to only hang out with your bubble, you'll be able to limit your chances of exposure by a substantial amount.

Switch Up Your Social Media Habits

Social media is a big part of our lives these days. From TikTok to Instagram to Snapchat and more, at times it can honestly get pretty overwhelming. However, if you feel like using social media to your advantage, it's a great way to make connections. We suggest you start commenting on more videos, liking more pics, creating more polls in your stories, and so on. This is a great way to spark a conversation with other like-minded people, and we're sure you'll have loads of fun while doing it.
