       Due to the human malware situation many people have been stuck at home, unable to leave. There are many problems that come up because of this, getting food, working, etc. But there is one question that is far more important than any of the others. What do you do to entertain yourself?

       You’ve beat Netflix and watched every Disney movie 3 times over, so what comes next?

       Here are some fun ideas and activities you can participate in from the comfort and safety of your own home.

       #1 Start a prank war with your family members. For a fun activity that unleashes your creativity, each day have one family member do a prank, and rotate. Some ideas include teepeeing your siblings room or barricading your parents into their room… just make sure you’re careful, because they will get you back!

       #2 Change your wardrobe. Pick a new style, new clothes, shoes, or dye your hair. If you’re at home anyway, who cares? It lets you be as creative and colorful as you are, or not colorful if that’s more your style. Style reflects personality, and you can also spend a ton of time on it.

       #3 With nothing else to watch, make your own show. Write a screenplay, make characters, and get creative. Have an intriguing plot, possibly even record it. It doesn’t matter if you want others to see it or not, make something you can enjoy, either alone or with friends.

       #4 Draw something, if you’ve been drawing a lot and you can’t think of anything, find some character prompts. There are some that base your characters traits off of your personality, they’re actually pretty fun, and a great way to spend an hour or two. If you don’t want to do that, then just color. Coloring is a great way to relax during a very stressful time.

      And #5, do your homework, I know it’s not a popular opinion, but your grades are important. If you just take the year off, it will negatively affect you and your future.
