Bored or super bored? Here are 30 weird and fun things to do at home

April 08, 2020

Disclaimer: We don’t wanna use that dreaded ‘buzz-word (you know that word going around literally everywhere, and our ears are bleeding from hearing that, metaphorically) … so, let’s just call it Voldemort (that-who-cannot-be-named).

So, Voldemort is here. And his evil forces are everywhere. To be safe from its clutches, we gotta be in our homes and we have soooo much of time on our hands. Seriously! There used to be times when we wished for a 48-hour day, and now, even 24-hours seem to just draaaaaaaaaaag by at snail’s speed. Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hotstar, Youtube, all done, snacks are over, gaming is done, cleaning done, Marie-Kondoing done, even colour-coding clothes and keys and books and cables and everything else - DONE! What now?

Lie on the sofa whole day and ponder over the meaning of existence? Umm, that’s an option, but let’s keep it as the last resort. For now, read on this list of funny and weird things you can do while at home and on the internet.

P.S. - This is NOT another sleepy-yawny-super-boring or intellectual kind of ‘what-to-do-how-to-do’ post. We promise! (And we got a surprise for y’all at the end…)

  1. Think of cleaning your email inbox…but not doing it - because you’re reading this super-amazing list of things to do!

If you could choose the flavour of your life, what would it be? For us, it would be totally tamarind. Khatti-meethi imli keeps life happy and sweet but excitingly tangy. This versatile fruit is a DESi favourite used in cuisines across the country: it goes in the chutney for the amazing samosa, is the star of heavenly pulihora (tamarind rice), makes delicious pickles and of course, (drumroll) super yummy candy!

The good ol’ School days. You know what made them extra special? Our best friend.


Remember how we used to make elaborate plans with our best friend for the day ahead — whether s/he was coming to school, for picnics, group presentations, home study sessions (that eventually turned out to be a party). And… hiding the homework from the teacher if one of us hadn’t done the work, and standing outside the class with our hands up for punishment… You both were inseparable.
