Im bored in the house and Im in the house bored

Sitting around is starting to not be as enjoyable as it would have been 3 months ago before being confined to our houses. School work can only keep me busy for so long and hurt my brain so much. If I have to write another 7 page single spaced paper I might scream. After next week though I will be done with school for months. What am I gonna do? I can only watch Tiger King and confirm that Carole Baskins killed her husband only so many times. I can't binge watch Infinity War and Endgame back to back for the 5th time without having another mental breakdown at the end of Endgame. I thought after seeing it twice I wouldn't cry as hard, yea that's not gonna happen. So what the hell am I going to do to keep busy for months.



 Maybe I will take up gardening. I just recently pot planted some cooking plants in my backyard such as rosemary, basil, fennel, etc. I was thinking to plant some tomatoes and cucumbers and maybe even plant a lemon tree. I started small with succulents when I first got home and have been taking care of those while home. They are super easy to take care of and really hard to kill. I wanted to take on more responsibility and plants that needed more attention.


In high school I was a huge painter. Given I'm no Leonardo Da Vinci but it is something that brings me joy. I quite enjoy just painting, putting on a good playlist, and lighting a candle and putting on the canvas whatever comes to mind. I also considered taking online classes to try and improve my painting skills and who knows, maybe one of us is a hidden Leonardo Da Vinci.


One thing to know about me is that I absolutely LOVE to read. Whether its a book, blog post, or even a recipe book. Ever since I was a kid my mom would have to come into my room late at night and take my books away from me. I often read 1-2 books at a minimum a week and I am a SUCKER for a good romance book. Need a little bit of romance in my life while being home alone. On a non busy day I can read 2 in one day. So this is a no doubt one thing I will be doing over my long break. But looking into reading, someone had to write the book or the piece. I used to try and write when I was a kid and once wrote a whole book in an old leather skin notebook. It took me a whole summer to write but I tool that notebook with me everywhere. To all my brothers baseball games, in the car, even to friends houses sometimes (never wrote anything when I went there.) I hope to get back into my writing craze again both here in The Corner Booth but also maybe a short story I have wanted to write for awhile but never seemed to have the time. Now I am over flowing with time.

Hopefully, if we all do our part, we can help stop the spread of covid-19 and minimize the amount of people who have been affected by the virus. It is deadly, devastating and not a joke. If you are not social distancing, you hurt everyone around you. Be smart and be safe and let's do our part to stop corona and be allowed outside our homes.
