    So many wonderful suggestions! A group of friends and I are going to have a video chat together tomorrow night and play an online game.

    I actually enjoy this stay at home time because it gives me more time for myself. I use this extra time to write, to sleep more, to spend more time with my family, to read, to watch my favorite movies and TV shows, hobbies, talking to friends. I don't get bored and time doesn't feel slow; on the contrary — it passes just as fast as usual.

    Stay positive and have a great weekend!
