Top 10 Things to Do While in QuarantineIn many places in America, we are now in mandatory house quarantine for the next couple weeks so it looks like a good time for a list of things to do while stuck in the house.
One of the oldest forms of entertainment, and with so many options in so many different genres, why not give it a try?
I've read almost all my dystopian books since February.
Get as much information as you can about this "pandemic."
Just because we can't go to the gym anymore (though I'm sure there are still people that do) doesn't mean you can't work out. You're bored anyways, the perfect time to devote an hour to doing push-ups, crunches, squats, etc.
I have a 40-pound dumbbell, and lifting that thing is like lifting Mjolnir.
Whether it be video games, board games, or puzzles, this is a productive way to keep entertained that will at least give your brain some exercise.
If your mom keeps nagging you to stop playing video games and go outside, use this as an excuse.
I have been playing Five Nights at Freddy's a lot.
I usually watch movies at night, and that's why I end up sleeping at 4 a.m.
Whether it be old VHS tapes your parents have, DVDs that have been collected, or streaming, this is an easy way to kill about 90 minutes-2 hours at a time.
I just saw Parasite. It's one of the best movies ever!
For those that are constantly working, it is the perfect time to get the much-needed rest you have needed.
Sleep is like a time machine that can make quarantine feel shorter.
What I do anyway.
I always do this. Music is awesome. I'm listening to Nothing Can Shake Me (From Your Love) by Survivor as I type. It's a good song.
I mean, I always listen to music.
I am doing a lot of music.
Just because we are stuck in isolation doesn't mean we can't talk with friends via a form of FaceTime.
I've been using Discord to keep up with friends recently.
My violin lessons are on Skype.
YouTube animation has been the best thing I discovered during lockdown. Highly recommend Somethingelseyt!
There is always random entertainment to be found on YouTube.
With not being able to work, it is the perfect time to catch up with all the TV shows you have fallen behind on or check out the shows you weren't sure about.
I've been re-watching the Thomas classic series since quarantine. Highly recommended if you're into trains.
This show is helping me get through quarantine.
It doesn't have to be school! Art classes, cooking classes, boxing classes, makeup classes!
Bad idea, but it's not like I had an alternative.
Do we really have a choice?
Well, I don't know how to do cursive, but I am pretty creative.
Whether you write in cursive or not, creative writing is awesome.
I eat, sleep, and breathe drawing and its creations.
Does anyone here draw chibis? The little anime characters but they are like babies almost.
Who here makes comics? I do.
I've tried with the guitar. I broke the tiniest string a few years ago, and it still hasn't been fixed. I'm a good baritone voice, though.
I write piano music. It is a lot easier than it sounds!
We are all in bad moods about being under quarantine, and with social media, we can get together to help elevate that by complaining about it, suggesting ways to cope with it, and making silly challenges.
This is the most productive thing you can do. I've got a bunch of recipes, have explored ingredients in cooking, and practiced new exercising methods, all of which get my day going. Self-improvement really does make you change for the better.
I used to do gymnastics, and it was fun. Plus, it is a good way to impress your peers!
Literally anything. No one's going to stop you. Anything will kill boredom.
They say cleaning makes the heart grow fonder.
That's what my family is doing now!
I clean my room every day.
Prank calling people is the best. What's better is that if they get mad, they can't beat you up because of quarantine.
I seriously suggest this one. I write novels in my spare time and always have since I was five. Not even kidding. Who knows? Maybe you will end up liking it as much as I do. I plan to do this for the rest of my life.
I love to write, but I have so many big ideas that I can't sew into a plot. However, in quarantine, I wrote a short story.
That's what I've been doing in quarantine.
