Need to Kill Time In Quarantine? InternDave Has the Answers


As we slowly crawl back into our self-isolation corners, or quarantine for some – it’s good to keep up with what fun and exciting activities we left behind these last two months!

So here is a list of my Top 7 Quarantine activities at your disposal!

7. Zoom Dates

Sure, meeting your better half in person for the first time is one of the best things that can happen on any given day, but who needs any of that nonsense when we have Zoom-Dates?

Matched with someone on Tinder? Great! Just send them over a Zoom link and enjoy 40 minutes of virtual romanticism like never before. And the best part is that whether the date goes well or not, you can still be in your underwear!



6.Clean Your Entire House… Again!

I’m very sure you haven’t dusted a single shelf since COVID Season 1, so why not pick up that duster again?

I’m sure you’ll have plenty of time on your hands to clear out even the most unseen of corners, and who knows? Maybe one day you’ll be sitting in your spotless home and realise you forgot to clean the few millimetres between your sink and your fridge, and you’ll suddenly have something else to do! It’s a gift that keeps on giving, and it’s good cardio!



5. Amazon Shopping Spree

Do you have anything on your Amazon or Aliexpress wish-list that you have been putting off from buying? Well – forget your bank account and go for it!

Think about it; the more useless stuff you buy now, the more surprises you’ll get over the coming month or two to remind you of all that money you spent! But hey, look at the bright side, at least you’re now the proud owner of one of those vibrating ab machines!



4. Catch Up With Pen Pals

No, I don’t mean write a letter, we’re in a 2020 Pandemic not the middle ages. What I mean is sending a text!

Why not reply to that annoying friend or relative that you know will spam your messages at any given moment? You’ll feel like a celebrity with all those notifications popping up on your phone, and you won’t even have to post anything on the ‘Gram! And if you get really bored, you might even consider actually carrying on the conversation.


3. Having a Drink With All Your Friends… From Home

Can’t meet in groups of more than 15? Not a problem! Just buy 15 phones (it is a little pricey, but worth every cent!) and place them around a table.

Facetime each of your best friends, pour them a shot each and drink up! Yes yes, I can hear you asking, “Dave, can’t we just messenger group call?”. The answer is no, just stick to the plan.

Sure, it’s not the same as your friends actually being there, but it’s like having a night-out in your own kitchen!



2. Meet New People

If you don’t have a very exciting contact list, why not give it an update? Being stuck at home is the best time to meet other people sitting home alone just like you! Now it may be tempting to do something silly and go on Facebook, but forget that.

Do it the old-fashioned way: stick your head out of the window and scream at the top of your lungs! If at first you don’t succeed, try again! I’m almost positive that if no one answers your screams, you’re sure to find people coming to see if you are OK. But you know, beggars can’t be choosers!



1. Play Monopoly.. Alone!

This is definitely way better than playing chess alone! After all, there is thousands of Monopoly Dollars in cash involved, and who doesn’t want to feel like a Monopoly Millionaire?

The best part is, you can do practically anything; you can legally steal from the bank, get out of jail without paying, and build hotels on any property you land for free! Now it may get a little lonely after a few minutes, but I have a solution for that too! Just break out a few of those old Lego or Playmobil figures from your childhood and pretend they’re playing too.

Unlike family members, plastic toys won’t get angry or frustrated when you cheat the whole way through. There is really no better way to spend your time at home!
