I have already done five weeks stuck indoors and my Netflix is empty. So, most of the links are cures for boredom or ideas for side-hustles.
A couple of apps I use have offered month-long trials. This link gives you a month's trial of Waking Up if you are interested in learning some meditation.
If you need some productive music, then I also have this link which will give you a month to try Brain.FM.
Enjoy this bunch of web miscellany,

⛓️ Ten Must See Links of the Month
- It doesn't matter what skills you have, they give you something you can write about. This article has great tips for finding freelance writing work.
- Inspirational websitesi curated by the team at Tympanus. Pretty much every 2020 design trend can be found in the list.
- Funny code comments are the best thing the internet gave us.
- Guess My Word is a great way to spend a few minutes (it took me way longer than that but I am trying to be cool here). Enter any word and the site will tell you whether the secret word falls before or after, alphabetically speaking, it.
- I'm in love with the subtle animation on these radio buttons.
- A list of over 500 museums you can view from your couch. I don't want to get you too excited, but the Bruce Lee Foundation is on the list. Take that, Mr. Chuck Norris, sir.
- This Instagram feed visualizes the funniest one-star reviews of America's great national parks. My pick is Zion National Park which has "distant" and "impersonal" scenery.
- Kapwing is an easy-to-use video editor. The free plan is quite good with no watermarks and 500MB upload limit.
- If you're going to be working from home, then this is a good list of productivity tools to help you stay on task.
- An interactive guide to TikTok dances is either a great way to embarrass your kids or a ticket to fame and fortune.
