The midseason finale of “The Walking Dead” is coming up and after that, fans will need to wait until February to see what happens during our favorite zombie apocalypse. That’s two plus months of non-zombie living to do. So what can you do during the midseason break? Here are a few ideas.
Learn to Shoot a Crossbow
It looks easy, right? Daryl makes it seem like shooting that crossbow of his is a piece of cake. Sounds like a great hobby to take up and a valuable skill to learn…just in case. Spend your midseason break learning to shoot like Daryl!
Take Up Needlework
Believe it or not, learning to crochet or knit can be a very soothing hobby. While you are waiting for “The Walking Dead” to return, go ahead and take up needle and yarn and make a hat or a scarf. Or two. During a real zombie apocalypse, this will be a much underrated skill. With just a little yarn, imagine how much you could help your group survive? You can outfit everyone with scarves and hats and other apparel to keep them warm, create a net for catching fish, maybe make an afghan or two to keep everyone warm while they sleep. When you aren’t knitting or crocheting, the needles can double as great zombie defense weapons!
Learn Survival Skills
In the event of zombies, you will need to know how to survive. Sure, you might think you will be great at wielding a sword or a crossbow (you learned to shoot one right?), but there’s more to survival than just killing zombies. You will need to know how to scavenge for food, how to purify water, how to cook on a campfire, how to dress minor wounds, and many other things. Take some time during the midseason break of “The Walking Dead” to brush up on your own survival skills. After all, there are other things besides a zombie apocalypse that could happen and require you to know how to survive.
Get in Shape
If you’ve got more rolls than a bread truck, then it might be time to get in shape. You don’t want to be the first snack walkers take out do you? You’ve seen how slow they move — you need to move faster! The midseason break is a great time to start exercising, eating right, and getting into better physical shape. Just in case. You never know when zombies or some other disaster will happen.
Try a Few New Recipes
While you’re getting in shape and eating healthier, try some of those new recipes you’ve been eyeing! You will now have some time on Sunday nights. Dedicate your Sunday evenings to trying out new dishes to serve your family. Maybe combine those survival skills with the new recipes. Who doesn’t want to try fried worms and breaded slugs?
Make your midseason break productive. Pick up a few new skills and be ready when “The Walking Dead” returns!
