“COVID-19.”

“Social Distance.”

“Shelter in home.”

“Quarantine.”

“Recovery Rate.”

“Death rate.”

Those have been the main words we hear everyday now as we have a pandemic spread, not only through our neighborhoods and cities, but throughout our country–and our world. We are forced to sit at home and wonder what will happen when this is all over? Or perhaps, what will you do when this is all over? 

Yes, we know, a typical bucket list contains the top things to do before you do. Well, welcome to the new norm. Because Dm’s COVID-19 version lists our ambitions when we’re allowed once again to live.

After asking more than 50 students, teachers, and parents; Wolf’s Print has been able to make a Post-Corona Bucket List for you to use, when quarantine is over. Use wisely, because with a great list comes great loads of fun.
