Stay Home and Start A Movie Marathon

Although Georgia’s stay-at-home order is to end pretty soon (on April 30), it is still not safe for anyone to go out. Sure, some businesses are reopening under Governor Brian Kemp’s brilliant recommendation, and you are dying to resume your fun activities. However, staying home and following the guidelines of public health officials, who actually know the dangers of the virus, is the smartest decision right now. The COVID-19 pandemic has not yet finished its wreaking havoc since we have not yet experienced the second wave. There is still a lot of damage awaiting us.

And no, President Trump is not a health expert; his advice suggesting that an “injection inside” of the human body with a disinfectant such as bleach or isopropyl alcohol could help fight the virus is laughable. Though the president said he was being sarcastic, some people might take him seriously. So, please, don’t try it. Just stay home, wash your hands regularly, and take your vitamins. 

In the meantime, I have an idea! A great way to make the time go quicker is to start a movie marathon. So, here is a list of film series that you should definitely check out. There is something for everyone. Enjoy!
