It’s Coronavirus time, now what? Here’s a massive list of 157 things to do now that you have some extra time.

Now that you’ve been quarantined into the abyss of loneliness and despair, just think, now’s the time to do those things you wish you had the time for. Plus Spring Break is here, so you’re bound to be looking for some ideas to keep you busy.

Just a reminder, it’s still an amazing time to be alive!

And if you’re an opportunist like me, you’re also thinking, “what can I do now to get ahead?”. I just love getting ahead. It drives me. When I’m doing something, I think, what else can I add to the mix. You know, 2 birds 1 stone. So now that we’re all forced to consider the consequences of being in public, and getting sick, this really is a great opportunity to catch up on the backlog of “to-do’s” and “wish I could’s”.
