Welcome to Limboland

Stuck at home?

Can you smell that? It's the faint tang of freedom in the air! There's light at the end of the COVID-19 shutdown-tunnel, and while it's going to take some time for everything to go back to normal, at least we know we can start stretching our wings a bit. 
 
If the idea of freedom gives you extra energy and motivation, start channelling it to get your future-thinking ducks in a row. Where are you at with your studies? Do you have an idea of a career path? Any plans to jump on the opportunities coming your way?

Solve your own problems

Looking for, finding and actually landing a job is challenging. Share your job hunting stories with us at #JobDiaries: you're not alone out there!

Under normal circumstances, if we're told to go outside to be active, socialise and experience the world, half the time we can't even be bothered. But when someone tells us 'no', that's it, we wanna do it!

Our resources will help you stay busy and find some purpose. Because NO, this is not the end of the world, and YES, you will come through it okay. If we can do it, so can you. You could even try some of the below, all tried and tested by us...
  • Puzzles: Buy a proper 1,000 (or 2,000) piece puzzle, and get to figuring it out!
  • Books: catch up on your reading. Pick three books you've always wanted to read, but never had the time for...
  • Board games (Monopoly is one that could go on for a week...)
  • Video games (Duh.)
  • Online training and skills courses (Do it!)
  • Language apps: learn to communicate with people from all over the world.
  • Cooking: get ready to apply for the next season of Masterchef...
  • Napping: it's an artform, people.
  • TikTok: welcome to the rabbit hole.
  • Card games: like, Exploding Kittens. Or Cards Against Humanity...(now available to play online!)
  • Design apps: the future is calling.
  • HouseParty: for when you just can't be alone anymore.

Speaking of TikTok, we've been feeling a tad trapped between the four walls of our own homes, so we thought why not share it with errrryyyboooody. First up, think you have what it takes to compete against our #toiletpapertrickshots? Prove it!
