Like you, I’m looking for sensible indoor activities during this temporary quarantine. I’ve tried a few. Juggling was fun but there are still stains on the ceiling and glass particles in the carpet. So I told my family that instead of throwing things up in the air and dropping them I’d buy a ukulele and learn to play it.

If you're a photographer, you've probably heard about or been afflicted by G.A.S.: Gear Acquisition Syndrome. Basically, it's a tongue in cheek way to describe being addicted to buying camera gear.
