What To Do Now That the Rochester Auto Show Is Cancelled

September 1st, 2021

By Sammi Cohen

If you were one of the many people looking forward to the Rochester Auto Show this year, you’re unfortunately out of luck. COVID-19 and its spread have canceled this event for the year, leaving many people with few options for fun. Thankfully, there are still many things that you can do to keep yourself entertained and avoid pandemic boredom concerns. These ideas might just help you get through this tough time.

Research New Car Options

Get online during your slow time or call specialists to learn more about different auto models and various facts about the field. For example, did you know that there were ever only 538 unique 1964 Mark II models created? Not many people know about these kinds of facts. Researching them will help to make your auto collection more complete and create more fascinating potentials for your collection.

Take Time to Learn a Language

Have you always wanted to learn a new language but never seemed to have the time? The pandemic is the perfect time to master Spanish, Italian, German, or even Japanese! Many language apps are free, such as Duolingo, but may limit how often you can practice. No matter what language you want to learn, there should be a unique option that will likely appeal to you and your learning needs.

Remodel Your Home

During the downtime through 2020, 3-in-5 homemakers (61%) performed some serious home improvement projects. They spent around $6,438 on the projects, improving their home value and style at the same time. Either hire someone to handle these projects for you or handle some DIY steps yourself. You’ll transform your house and keep yourself busy at the same time: a major win-win.

Catch Up on Reading

If the world around you seems depressing and hard to tolerate, it is time to jump into a new world with a fantastic book. While binging television shows and movies may be easier for some to handle, reading helps to keep the mind busy and can even improve your cognitive skills in many ways. Thankfully, you can also buy electronic options if you find it hard to read regular books.

Try Social Gaming

Board gaming and video gaming have become more popular than ever during the pandemic. People often meet up online to play digital versions of board games or play online social games. For example, Minecraft has reached a record population in recent years, with 600 million people playing the game. Around 400 million of these come from China, though many other people play around the world.

Start Journaling

If the pandemic has been hard for you to handle emotionally, why not write your emotions down in a journal? You don’t have to be an excellent writer to get many benefits from journaling. This step is often a great one for those Rochester residents who love getting down what they think and have a hard time expressing themselves to others. Likewise, you could even start that book you’ve always wanted to write.

Practice Music

Do you play a musical instrument or have an interest in learning one? Then, you might want to pick up a keyboard or guitar and start playing. Your playing will be a bit rough at first, naturally. However, online lessons can help teach you how to handle your instrument and give you the chance to enjoy playing music. You might even get into songwriting and performing!

Even though the Rochester Auto Show is canceled, these activities should keep you engaged and excited. So why not try one of them out today to see how they feel? You might find that they meet your needs perfectly. And if you’re skilled enough, try out many of these options to thrive even more. You might be surprised at just how much fun you can have if you’re willing to expand yourself.
