While I wouldn't recommend it, it's possible to live and work without worrying about the world outside your front door. I will note, though, that we have a term for this: agoraphobia.
This is easier as a programmer, or a designer, or some other profession that lends itself to remote work.
- Head over to WeWorkRemotely, StackExchange, or any number of language specific job boards to find some remote work.
- Get whatever groceries you need off of Instacart.
- Order takeout through Fluc or Eat24.
- If you're looking to save some money on food, try SpoonRocket or Munchery (or even Soylent, if that floats your boat).
- Again, pick up whatever cleaning supplies you need via Instacart.
- For a deeper clean, book an appointment with Homejoy or HandyBook.
- Don't have an in-unit washer/dryer? No problem, just use Wash.io.
- Movies? Netflix. Video games? Steam. When it comes to digital entertainment, the internet has your back.
- For nearly anything physical (books, games, etc), you'll want the everything store, Amazon.
- If you want to get your drink on, get Postmates to grab a six pack.
- 4/20 friendly? No worries, Eaze is on it.
- After a long, hard day of staying at home, get an on-demand massage via Unwind Me.
- Okay, if there's something seriously wrong, call 911 and leave the damn house.
- But otherwise, book a housecall with Medicast or videochat with a doctor via Doctor on Demand.
- I'll admit, this one is a bit tricky. The best I got is to use Tinder to meet someone nearby, then suggest coming over for dinner (I'm sure by now you're a pro at delicious homemade dinners, right?).
- Make up for it by sending flowers with BloomThat.
