It’s safe to say that we’re living in some interesting times that we’ve never really faced before. We all know that staying inside right now is the right thing to do, but there is no denying that it’s gonna make us all a little stir-crazy.

Luckily for us, we live in the age of the internet, where people are able to share their unique and interesting ways to beat the boredom that seems to have taken over all of us.

Some Of Us Are Working From Home

And let’s be serious, those of who are working from home have been switching between our sleeping pajamas, and our nicer, work-appropriate pajamas. Let’s keep those remote meetings audio-only, please!

It’s a little bit hard to pay attention the same way you do at the office with so many fun distractions at home like pets or personal hygiene. Let’s not even get started on Netflix.

Remember that if you’re going to adopt, it’s because you still want to keep it afterward! But, beware, because as mentioned before, these beautiful little creatures are a world of distractions.

Ever wanted to have a prank war? Well, according to Twitter, now is the time! And what is it that everyone is flocking to in these desperate times? That’s right, toilet jokes.

It’s become a really fun thing to dress your toilet up like a person who’s smoking, and then everyone laughs about it. Or at least that’s what I’m assuming is supposed to happen.

If this had always been a thing, maybe there would have been other people who wouldn’t normally watch the show feeling kind of into it. Everyone loves a good game of Guess Who!

If you happen to live with roommates or your family still, then maybe it’s time to get just a little bit competitive about things. I mean, nothing will foster love more in self-isolation than creating life-long grudges.

He knew he couldn’t go to see her because it wasn’t safe for her to have visitors, so what’s the cutest possible thing he could think of? Serenading his mother from the sidewalk.

But that might be counterproductive as well, because, for all the good information you’re going to get on it, you’re going to see some stuff that is going to make your eyes roll big time.

It’s great to spend your time doing things that challenge the mind like building a puzzle you had made of your child (for some reason), but that couldn’t end up totally creepy at all.

There is no better time than now to eat all those snacks you always tell yourself not to. Let’s be real, most of us finished our two weeks’ worth of groceries in a handful of days.

Look how happy he is to have finally built that ring of Pringles! We could all spend this time chasing our dreams and doing the things we keep putting off.

You’re going to be spending a lot more time around your pets for the next little bit, so you might as well get to know them, right? Play a couple games, ask some questions.

A little bit of grooming never hurt anyone! And cats love mutual grooming. You can pick up the habit of sad cat ladies where you make things out of your cat’s old hair.

Maybe you know someone who needs to be seriously self-isolated in your home. Don’t go near them if you can help it, but make sure that they have what they need.

This is what actually will make you a king in this day and age. It seems absolutely insane, and to a point it is. This person missed their calling as an architect.

This guy has raided someone’s fancy hand sanitizer collection and decided to channel the part of him that’s always wanted to go to Comic-Con. Let’s hope that his magic glove works as well as Thanos’s.

Times like these really make you appreciate what normal is and how, at any other time, normal feels like the worst thing ever. It’s weird how that seems to work out.

But being able to cut open a clementine and take out the little babies without making a mess is a skill that I know I would love to have. Maybe she’s got this whole thing figured out.

Don’t forget to celebrate the special moments that are still gonna happen in these times. Like these people, who took some anniversary photos that are somehow tasteful and tasteless at the same time.
