For those of you living alone, how are you keeping yourself entertained during social distancing? I’m hundreds of miles from my family and the loneliness is starting to get really hard. Zoom/FaceTime calls seem to make the feeling worse, not better. I just feel so isolated. I’ve gone for some outdoor walks with a friend who lives nearby, but otherwise I go weeks without in-person interactions. Any suggestions?

Advice question: I am having a home maintenance issue that’s affecting my sleep (something with our pipes or something in the ceiling that’s causing a lot of noise at night, totally sucks). In addition to being a tired monster, I have been watching myself on Zoom and my eyes are super puffy and have giant bags under them. Have allergy- and acne-prone skin so have never worn much makeup - any advice on what I could try? Thanks so much 🙏

Right now I’ve got a fat lump sum just sitting and wasting in savings.
