100 Things You Could Do During Quarantine

Whether you like it or not, we are quarantined for the safety of our future world! Be true to your introverted self during this forced time of self-cleansing, because while you are being asked to do your part, living inside the comfort of your own home, others are working diligently, attempting to control the spread of disease.

Below is a whole range of ideas explaining different things you could do during quarantine that DO NOT IN ANY WAY suggest putting yourself in crowded, public areas ridden with airborne illness (*some suggestions submitted friends on Instagram, enjoy):
