    1. Watch Tiger King.

    Netflix

    Get ready to become completely entranced by the world of Joe Exotic and his friends and foes. This series will keep you on your toes, with a "WTF" expression never leaving your face.

    One of my coworkers accurately described the show as, "Imagine knowing someone who has a crazy aspect to their life, which makes them the most interesting person you know. And then imagine that every single person in this documentary has about 10 different crazy aspects to their life. Even if they had just one, they would be the most interesting person you know — but they have 10 each." That, in one paragraph, is the beauty that is Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness.

    Watch it on Netflix.

    Alternatively, the fourth season of Money Heist is coming to Netflix this weekend. It's a Spanish drama about, you guessed it, a heist. But it's done so well that you won't be able to resist watching episode after episode until you no longer know what sleep is. If you haven't seen any of it yet, I'm not saying you can binge all three seasons in three days. But I'm not saying you can't. Watch it on Netflix from Friday here!

    2. Read The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho.

    For the longest time when people would ask me what my favourite book is, I'd try to come up with something different and unique. But honestly, I'm ready to admit that The Alchemist has won time and time again. The story is about finding your life's purpose and completing it. It's philosophical and will force you to pause and think, which is the perfect mindset for what we're all going through now, right?

    Buy the paperback version from Amazon Australia for $14 or the Kindle edition for $14.99.

    Alternatively, you could listen to it on Audible for $33.37 or for free with a 30-day trial.

    3. Download TikTok. Just do it.

    4. Try your hand at making delicious homemade pasta.

    My wonderful colleague Nat rounded up a whole list of pasta you can make at home. Whether you're a gnocchi or tortellini kind of pasta lover, you're sure to find something you'll like. Plus, because all the store shelves are a little bare on the pasta front, I found this list of recipes to be an absolute lifesaver.

    And if you want to go all out, treat yourself to this pasta maker too.

    5. Play Exploding Kittens with your self-isolation buddies.

    Exploding Kittens is so much more fun than it's given credit for. The rules and cards you play with are similar to Uno, however the stakes are higher and the pay off is so much more satisfying. You can die (lose the game) in an instant if you draw an 'exploding kitten', but there are ways around it — and the ability for you to sabotage your fellow players.

    Buy it from Catch for $44.10.

    6. Listen to Dua Lipa's sophmore album, Future Nostalgia.

    7. Follow Martina Martian (@martinamartian) on Instagram.
