If you use Instagram, you might’ve noticed a lot more people posting stories, going on Live, doing some sort of dance to that ONE song, or mysteriously captioning “until tomorrow …” You may find it completely annoying, but, hey, if you can’t beat ‘em join ‘em. One Instagram challenges to try on your own or with friends is #shotforashot. It’s as simple as it sounds, and all you have to do is record yourself taking a shot, tag ten friends to do the same, post it, and watch the domino effect. You can also do the pushup version, or make one up.

If you have been around small children at any point you’ve heard, “Do you have any games on your phone?” and by now, a game or two doesn’t sound too bad. Dive into virtual reality and brush up on your gaming skills with a few friends on FIFA, 2K, Call of Duty, or whatever’s your jam. If you can’t be bothered by staring at a screen for a second longer, play fun card games like UNO, spoons, or spade – you’d be surprised by the intensity. Also, remember when you were THEE Monopoly champion? It’s time to reclaim your title. But, word of caution if you’re competitive- keep in mind you live with who you play with!
