Just wanted to throw together some things that help me and may help you enjoy the physical distancing a little more.

TV and Movies

Scrubs

My all-time favorite show. It resonates, even more, these days.

Stream on Hulu

World War Z

A really cool movie about Codid-19 zombie outbreak.

Rent or buy anywhere

Outbreak

A little naive and fairly old movie about an outbreak of a virus in a particular city.

Stream on Netflix

Contagion

If you ever wondered if anyone ever predicted Covid-19 outbreak, wonder no more. This movie is strikingly accurate when it comes to what we are experiencing today. Pretty fascinating!

Rent anywhere

Games

If you're a gamer, definitely try Ori and the Will of the Wisps. It's a fantastic game, but I couldn't play it — it got too complex for my non-gamer taste. But you will enjoy it, I promise!

Ori and the Heartbreak of Non-Gamers

Sayonara Wild Hearts

Fantastic, dynamic, beautiful, and quick. Challenging enough to keep you entertained, but casual enough to be played, well, casually.

Video Happy hours

Happy Hour with @rosnovsky

Consider this an invitation to a casual ad-hoc happy hour! Bring beer, coffee, Red Bull, or soup. Pajamas ok, pants are highly recommended :)

Podcasts and such

Going for a walk? Quick workout? Cooking something? Put on a podcast and get twice the fun!

Conferences & Meetups

It's interesting how conferences adapt to this new reality. And I must say, most are doing a fantastic job transitioning to 100% online. Some still charge quite a lot, some are very flexible (pay-per-track, pay for VOD, or only pay for workshops, for example), and some gone completely free. Well, my conference budget just got waaaay more flexible as well. I think, I'm going to attend them all BECAUSE I CAN 😂

Tutorials (and other learning)

There are hundreds upon hundreds of fantastic tutorials and resources to keep you sharp and leave isolation with a bunch of new skills and projects!

Books

Books are awesome. Fight me! Here's a list of books I am reading, will be reading soon, or have read in the past and highly recommend.

Bonus: Home improvement projects

Nah, I'm not the kind of person who's into DIY. But I've got a pretty serious urge to make our back room into a proper office and lounge space.
