I've been social distancing since Sunday. I spent my spring break in Florida, and although I have no symptoms, I chose to self-isolate. While there is no official lockdown in effect yet for Massachusetts, most people I know are also self-isolating in fear of getting the disease. Most businesses and schools are also closed until further notice. I decided to go on social media and ask what people were doing to keep themselves entertained, and I was surprised by how varied the results are.
This is a great time to finally read those books you bought awhile ago and almost forgot about!
Playing a *lot* of Video Games
Redecorating Their Bedroom
Binge Watching Every TV Show on Their Netflix/Hulu Watch List

While yes, social distancing is boring and mildly annoying, it is for the greater good. Chances are you know someone who is elderly, immuno-compromised, or both. Their health and safety is just as important as your own.
