One of the upsides of being quarantined at home for months on end is all the extra time you have. Even with remote schooling and working from home, we’re all spending a lot more time together, in the house. Parents aren’t going out to dinner or the movies, errands are limited, kids don’t have playdates or playgrounds to go to, there are no long commutes to the office, etc.
For many of us, this extra time isn’t amounting to much more than a lot of binge-ing TV shows and drinking beer. But some people are taking advantage of the quarantine to exercise their creative muscles by learning guitar or a new language, or increasing their TikTok output, maybe even writing a novel.
