Never ending quarantine
April 7, 2020
This past month quite possibly could go down as the strangest month of my life. Of course it started out fine, but everything abruptly changed and the entire world flipped upside down.
These last weeks have been pretty tough for me. Unfortunately, all of this quarantine stuff has taken away some of the most important things to me: baseball and being able to connect and hang out with my friends. It has been a while since I went this long without being able to get out on a field or get to go to one of my friends’ houses, but like everyone else I have learned to adapt and be content with what I can do.
Over the days, I have gotten somewhat of a schedule down and I rarely stray away from it (on the weekdays at least). I start my day by waking up around 10ish and immediately get started on my school work. It might not be the best thing to do, but I have found it to be the most productive. I get the most work done in the morning when I am free of distractions and still tired enough to not want to leave my room. Depending on how much school work I have, I usually get up and out of my room by 12ish and start the rest of the day, which consists of not too much. I eat some lunch and then I try to go for a bike ride or workout or go play basketball with my brother. After that I kind of just do whatever I want considering I don’t have too many things to do. At this time I usually end up playing video games (mostly MLB The Show) with my friends, watching a movie or just falling asleep.
Around 7ish I end up eating dinner with my family. Family dinners are always interesting, especially with my brother back from college, just because it’s back to how it used to be when he still lived here. That definitely is one thing that is pretty good about this whole quarantine stuff, my brother being back from college, and we usually mess around and hang out for the better half of the day.
After dinner we usually find a board game to play and that usually lasts around an hour and by 8:30 I find myself with nothing to do, except play video games or talk to my friends. I do that until I get tired enough to get back into my bed and just relax and usually listen to music. Eventually around 2-3 in the morning, I fall asleep, wake up and start the whole thing over again.
