There are a ton of random ways to keep yourself entertained and productive at home during the coronavirus quarantine, but these are our quick and easy picks. (Tried to keep 'em as non-cheesy as possible...except for number 4.)
5 UNIQUE THINGS TO DO DURING QUARANTINE INSTEAD OF TEXT YOUR EX:
1. ATTEMPT TO MASTURBATE WITH YOUR NON-DOMINANT HAND
Important things at the top of the list, obviously.
Also, don't forget the lube.
2. LEARN STUFF
The podcast-a-verse is a black hole of information. Same with YouTube. Stay curious!

3. ORGANIZE YOUR STUFF
If you're single, this is a pretty sweet Jedi mind trick for impressing the next date you bring over (*after isolation*). For bookshelves, get OCD and line books up by their size and/or color. Or size, then color! (Hi, it us.) Vinyl record, DVD or (gasp)! CD collection? Organize them alphabetically. Closet: group clothing items together by how much you wear them. Makes it so much easier when getting dressed (to hang out in the living room). Hawaiian shirts to the back!
4. CREATE UNIQUE EATS
Create your next lunch or dinner -something you've never made before- using the 'stray'/random ingredients you have on hand. There are NO rules when it comes to nachos - they are the perfect vehicle for canned foods, misc. vegetables, and pretty much any type of meat. Pro tip: using a big ol' bag of mozzarella cheese and a few eggs as waffle batter is next-level snack material. You can thank us later (after you make your first "Chaffle" sandwich).
5. UPDATE YOUR RESUME
Whether your work has or hasn't been affected by the fallout of this pandemic, it never hurts to have a fresh, clean resume on hand, should shit go awry at any point in the future. Alternative: Clean up or create a LinkedIn profile. Find some easy resume tips here.
