Today wasn’t the best day. I woke up with a migraine and I didn’t really feel like doing anything. I could barely eat or open my eyes, cause of how bad my migraine was. But, as the day progressed it got better and I ended up doing some homework and stuff.

Again another boring day. Nothing really happen I just had to do homework and try to understand what I am doing. And some more Netflix, and tv.

Day whatever of lock down. Everything is fin eI guess just bored out of my mind. Nothing has happened and I don’t think anything is going to happen for a while. I just have to stay inside and do homework or read. There is tv and Netflix and stuff but that gets boring after a while. I really have nothing else to say so, I’ll just end it here.

Day 4 of lock down was okay. I woke up late and honestly didn’t feel like doing homework so I didn’t do a lot of it. I played a little bit of the guitar today. Hopefully by the end of the “break” I’ll know a couple songs. I honestly don’t have a lot to talk about because nothing really happened today so I’ll just end this post short.
Book of the day: This is Where it Ends by Marieke Nijkamp. It’s a book about a school shooter. It has multiple point of views and you really get to see what different people think during a situation like that. It is a really good read and it isn’t a super long book either. The ending was honestly heart breaking to me though.
Favorite quote from the book: “You can’t always keep your loved ones with you. You can’t always settle your life in one place. The world was made to change. But as long as you cherish the memories and make new ones along on the way, no matter where you are, you’ll always be at home.”

Day 3 of the lock down was fine. I of course did some more homework, I read, binged watch some Netflix, and some tik-toks. I have been feeling super upset just being in the house all day. I really just want to go out with my friends but I can’t even do that. It’s just annoying because we’re supposed to be enjoying our teenage years but we can’t even leave our rooms.
So i said yesterday that i was going to play the guitar today, but I didn’t. Instead I painted a pair of old jeans I had. It actually turned out really cute. So now I just want to paint all of my clothes but I will try to hold back. So that’s pretty much all for today.
Book of the Day: Turtle’s All the Way Down by John Green. It’s a story about a girl with a mental illness and how she’s struggling with that. And she also is trying to solve a murder case. The main character has obsessive compulsive disorder, and the book shows how it can affect daily life.
Favorite quote from the book: “One of the challenges with pain—physical or psychic—is that we can really only approach it through metaphor. It can’t be represented the way a table or a body can. In some ways pain is the opposite of language.”

Day 2 of the “break” has gone a little bit better than the first day. It was another day of reading, homework, watching tv, and going on my phone. I did some stretching and did as much gymnastic as I could do in a room. I’m definitely missing going out and hanging out with friends right now.
I’ve decided that everyday I’m going to try something I usually don’t do. Today’s thing was drawing. I used to kinda draw a lot as a kid but I was never that good, and I usually didn’t have the time. But, today I did actually ok. I was genuinely surprised. Tomorrow’s thing is going to be guitar, since I used to play and have now forgotten everything I know.
My brothers and I have surprisingly gotten along. My little brother played xbox with my for a little bit and my older one helped me take a picture for this blog. And Later this week I have to help him take “90’s theme” pictures. So that should be interesting.
Book of the Day: One of Us is Lying by Karen M. McManus. Five high school students get detention. None of the knew each other really and one of the students mysteriously dies. The remaining four of them are now suspects in the case and are trying to figure out who really did it. The twist ending was the best part. If you have read a murder mystery or if you haven’t, I recommend this book.
Favorite quote from the book: “I guess we’re almost friends now, or as friendly as you can get when you’re not one hundred percent sure the other person isn’t framing you for murder,” – I honestly that it was funny that’s the only reason.

Today has probably been one of the most boring days in my whole life. My entire house is on lock down right now and I can’t leave. I was supposed to have a gymnastic class today, but they have been suspended until further notice. I was thinking that this break was going to be fun, but it’s the complete opposite. I thought that doing homework would help pass the time, but all of my assignments are just busy work and are easy to complete.
The only good thing about this break is I’ve been able to catch up on my reading, both for school and personal reading. I hadn’t had much time to read because of school, and it is nice to have a break. I decided to use this time to see if I would like online school, which I considered doing. And so far the answer is: I would be too bored to do online school and I like public school way better.
So to summarize, day 1 of this “break” has been boring and non-eventful. But, a good day for catching up on my reading and homework. So far writing this blog has been one of the highlights of the day.
Book of the Day: “Everything, Everything” by Nicola Yoon. The plot of the book is the main character Madeline Whittier has condition called Severe Combined Immunodeficiency, commonly known as “bubble baby disease,” which basically means she can’t leave her house. This reminded me of what I’m going through; even though I don’t have the coronavirus, I’m stuck in the house. I decided to see what this character did to pass time. Madeline ends up seeing her new neighbor Olly and they start communicating via email. The story is actually entertaining and I recommend it.
Favorite quote from the book: “I don’t know what I’m doing, only that I have to. Sometimes I wish I could go back to the way I was before, before I knew anything. But I can’t.” -page 169
