It seems like there’s no end in sight. Like most I thought that at the start of 2020, and the start of a new decade, it was a time to start things afresh, let go of all the negativity in our lives, and welcome the new decade with open arms. Sadly, things have taken a turn for the worst and worldwide we are in the midst of a pandemic. Countries have gone into lockdown, were in a state of national emergency, resources are depleting, and society is becoming more fractured day by day. Incase you are self-isolating indoors for the foreseeable future, here’s a list of things you can do to pass the time.
