I don’t know about you guys but I think I’ve officially lost track of the days, again. There’s talk about the provinces opening up by the end of the month, I’m not entirely convinced that we’re in the clear yet but let’s stay optimistic! Anyways, for those still inside going stir crazy, here are some possible things you can do.
Play Some Games
I’ve been able to catch up with some games that I was interested in, and finally be able to play/check them out. Everyone has their own game tastes but I’ll give some suggestions to pass time. On mobile: Last Day On Earth Survival, Westland Survival, Hotel Empire Tycoon. Last Day On Earth in my opinion, can be very unforgiving so you may have to check out tips online when you first start. I personally play Westland Survival the most out of all the games.
For desktop: Stardew Valley, Slime Rancher, The Sims 4 and Harvest Moon Light of Hope. I haven’t touched any of my desktop games so far, because I’ve been busy with Westland. However, these games are pretty good to play if you want to pass time, it’s easy to get really caught up in it so I usually end up setting an alarm.
First, see if your school gives you access to Adobe products. With some time on your hands, try messing around with Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator and etc. I’ve been trying to use photoshop to lightly brighten the images a little because some pictures were in the wrong light and made some products look darker.
Well, it’s not the beginning of spring anymore, but spring cleaning (in a sense) can still occur. I think it’s a good time to see what’s in your closet, what you’ll still wear and etc. However, with donation boxes temporarily unavailable due to Covid-19 I would just set aside anything that you want to donate. I did my spring cleaning pretty early on so my extra stuff made it’s way in the boxes before closure. It’s taken a lot of willpower to not buy anything thus far…
Build Your City Bucketlist
This is related to when your area opens up again. Go online and find some places that you’d be interested in visiting when restrictions are lifted, and make a list of them. I would make a note of the address too because some stores could have multiple locations. Search for cafes, boutiques, specialty restaurants, small restaurants, mom and pop stores and etc.
Create Your Ultimate Travel Guide
If you have someplace in mind that you want to visit one day, and if you have a lot of time available, try making your ultimate travel guide via internet searches and etc. You’ll need to get pretty in depth if you’re going to commit to this so finding a comfortable nook in your home may be ideal. I’ve taken a few hours a day to complete this in a word doc, and while I think I’m almost done, I also feel like I’m missing things.
You may want to add things such as: Places to stay, tours to book, sight-seeing places, places to shop, activities to book, cafes to visit, etc. The process is kind of similar to building your city bucketlist, especially the activities part. I’m focusing this guide on Seoul, South Korea but in the future I might make one for Japan.
Learn A Language
If you have a lot of time on your hands, learning a new language could be added to the list. Personally I’ve been using Duolingo on and off for the better part of the year to learn Korean and re-learn French (at my mom’s insistence). I originally thought to try Vietnamese but it was a lot harder than I thought…
I hope this little list helps to find some stuff to do if you decide to stay home a little longer, or at least until the restrictions are lifted.
