When I heard that I would be working from home for a solid 2-3 weeks, my first reaction was to jump up and down with happiness. Finally, an introvert’s dream come true: I can work, sleep, eat in my bed and no one’s gonna say anything. And while we have to do everything within our reach to stay at home, practice social distancing and isolate ourselves, it can get boring after a while. 2 weeks in and I’m yearning to go out with friends already! And even though we cannot right now, we will in the next few weeks (hopefully!). Till then, let’s stop binge-watching Netflix and do something more creative, shall we?
