The Parent Trap Handshake

An iconic childhood movie is The Parent Trap, starring Lindsay Lohan. In multiple parts of the movie, main characters Hallie, Annie, and her butler do a fun handshake to say good-bye to each other, or just for fun! For my entire life, I’ve wanted to learn this handshake, but I never got around to actually learning it. For this hometask, I finally taught myself the handshake (and my brother too)! Although it’s not perfect, I hope you recognize this from The Parent Trap and hopefully you can teach it you your family too for a fun quarantine dance!

Make-your-own Mannequin

When thinking about how to do something extraordinary with a pair of trousers, nothing that sounded especially extraordinary popped into my mind. But then I had another thought: What if the extraordinary aspect is making the trousers appear in their normal setting, but through a different medium? I walked around my apartment, searching for ways to portray my trousers, when I came across my brother’s crutches. I put the crutches into the legs of the pants, added a white blouse, a tie, and a jacket, and topped it off with a cap and sunglasses. Although it’s apparent there isn’t a physical human inside the pants, they still look seemingly normal-and that’s the extraordinary part! I created a new normal. I added some build-up music from the Rocky Balboa theme song to create dramatic effect. Here, you can watch my extraordinary creation!

Goal!

Using tupperware as a goals, I decided to turn my kitchen into a soccer/tennis arena. I used a tennis racket to hit some of my dog’s balls into my makeshift goals… and I actually scored a few! I’ll need to work on my aim and maybe finding some sturdier goals, but I am definitely making strides to becomes the player I’ve always hoped to be! Here you can watch my video. Enjoy!

White-out

I have worn the same white sweatshirt every day of quarantine, so I knew it had to be incorporated into my camouflage. I concealed myself with a beige scarf and white bag to blend in. Then, I stood inside my white closet and revealed myself amidst the white background, just like a ghost. Boo!

Here is my movie!

Welcome to the Quaranclub

For my bathroom nightclub, I took a creative spin on it by incorporating some common coronavirus qualms into the storyline. I wrote a sign on the door that said “Welcome to the Coronaclub” and handed the bouncer my ID. However, he did not accept it and pushed me out of the way so I came back with purell. Even though he didn’t accept my ID, he still let me into the nightclub in exchange for a squirt of coveted purell. Once I entered, the music was blaring and I handed the bartender cash to buy a drink. He did not accept the cash and only accepted toilet paper! This video shows what it would be like to attend a nightclub in today’s world. People would not accept money but only scarce items. This bathroom remodel was a lot of fun to create, and I really enjoyed finding various items in my home to incorporate that I never thought would fit in with the theme. For instance, I used blue and yellow wires as decorations as well as a red exercise band.

Yoga Throw

My throw is spectacular because I swiftly incorporated it into my yoga practice. During quarantine, I’ve taken up yoga, which has helped me calm down amidst the chaos happening in the world. Watching my peers’ throws, I noticed a pattern of students taking very drastic measures to throw the piece of paper into a trash bin. I wanted to find a way to throw that fit right into my daily routine. While many of the other throws are creative, my throw is spectacular because I demonstrate how small tasks can be incorporated into every aspect of daily life. Quarantining has forced us all to help out more around the house, which includes taking out the trash more often. While many people might complain about taking out the trash more often, my throw illustrates how people can easily incorporate these chores into their lifestyle without it disrupting their flow of life.
