Being trapped in most of the day and not being able to talk to other people face to face can be a bit of a drag, can't it? Even those of us who enjoy a little, or quite a lot, of time being left alone, are starting to go a bit stir crazy.

However, there are still a few people out there who are clinging on to any bastion of entertainment value they can in life, albeit from the comfort of their quarantined states. So, without further ado, here are 13+ people who are handling quarantine pretty well!
