A lot of stuff is happening (sort of).

Apparently my last blog didn’t get saved so I guess now I will rewrite everything. Last weekend I went up north to Traverse city. While I was there I visited my family, which would be my cousins and grandparents.

At my grandparent’s house I was surprised to find my grandparents got a new dog. They already had one small dog, so I was surprised when I saw a giant pit bull looking at me. He was really nice and cute though, I miss him.

I didn’t do much at my grandparent’s house, but after spending the night there, I had left to see my cousins. We did a lot over there, I had learned how to shoot a bow and arrow so that was fun. After a few tries I had actually gotten a bullseye on the target they had. Then we played badminton and stayed inside for rest of the day. We made a lot of friendship bracelets since we didn’t really have much to do. Other than doing nothing we also played Just Dance for like literally 2 hours straight and when I tell you my body still hurts it does.

I spent the night there then the next day I had to leave, so my family and I then visited my aunt. She isn’t really my aunt though, since she’s actually just my mom’s best friend but my sister and I just call her aunt. She had a baby so we were basically babysitting the rest of the weekend. The kid wouldn’t leave me alone either so I was anticipating the moment we would be leaving. I don’t really like kids if it wasn’t obvious enough.

We had finally left and drove home for 4 hours which was full of traffic and it was horrible. I had luckily been able to sleep half of the ride home. When I got home I just tried to relax and if I wasn’t relaxing I was trying to do homework which has been really hard lately. Even now i’m still trying to finish assignments although there’s probably like 1 week left of school.

I’ve honestly kind of lost track of time and it’s been troublesome accomplishing anything. But, I still found some time on my hands for things other than homework and I had started hanging out with my friends again. Yesterday I went to my friend’s house and we watched moviesĀ  and walked to the store together (don’t worry we were wearing masks, but not that many people really are pressed about corona anymore). We had just end up buying lots of drinks and junk food. After buying our snacks we walked to my house and hung out there. Eventually we had to part and now it is the next day and I am sitting here typing this.

I can’t believe that we have stayed home this long. 2020 has been a fever dream, and I feel like most people could agree. It’s actually kind of upsetting knowing my grades and experience of school has been effected by all of this. Homework feels harder, keeping on track feels trickier, and socializing with my friends has been much different than it used to be. I sort of miss going to school in person, but deep down I really do enjoy being home with my family and being alone.

Still nothing.

Sunday, May 17th, 2020

I haven’t accomplished anything. I’ve been dealing with family things. My sister is now staying at my grandmother’s house for 2 weeks. Hopefully she has accomplished something. I haven’t really done my homework, but I’m at least proud of myself for finishing some assignments. At this point I will most likely be held back from my lack of work for school. I’ll get to it at some point (maybe). I’m surprised I’m even doing this right now, but I mean writing without formality or rules or anything is way easy than any other writing assignment or even an assignment that isn’t writing at all.

I’ve mostly just been cleaning, sleeping, going for walks, and trying to do assignments. I’m easily distracted however so trying to do any assignments has been challenging. I’ve been walking with my mom, and sometimes with my neighbor. If I’m not walking to get out of the house, then I am probably shopping with my mom or something. It’s hard to get out of the house when you can’t really go anywhere.

Now that my sister is staying at my grandmother’s house I don’t really know what to do with myself. Sure, I do the same things but it’s odd not having someone barge into my room to annoy me, or yell at me for something, or hang out with me. I don’t really know what to do with myself nowadays since she isn’t here. But, I’m still doing the same things I’d usually do so I guess it isn’t that different from normal.

Sick of quarantine, but who isn’t? I’m not as sick as everyone else though, I happen to enjoy being a shut in. I have not been doing any of my homework, and now that I have a F in every class now, I guess I really have to do that stuff. I was just writing a to do list of my homework and whatever, and it’s a lot. But, to be honest, I could care less. Sleeping is definitely better than doing any work. I have nothing else to write my life is boring. Whose life isn’t boring right now, though? Literally there is nothing to do unless you are going out (which you shouldn’t be so, like, stop).

But really all I have been doing is sleeping, watching t.v, watching videos, listening to music, taking care of my pets (which two of my pets are getting old and passing away so that’s really adding to my sad count right now), and eating. If I’m not being lazy, I’m being lazy with my neighbor or my sister. The only reason I see my neighbor right now is because my sister will take me with her, since were all pretty good friends.

Okay, I have to do homework. This is going to take forever.

It’s now April and I haven’t done anything remotely productive. I’ve been more focused on other things, such as myself, my family, and things I need to do at home. Recently, I haven’t done much at all other than sleeping, cleaning, and simply relaxing. Tomorrow is my 16th birthday, so you could probably guess I’m a bit upset. But, I ordered stuff online which hopefully will arrive soon. Some things have already arrived, like my fluffy rug.

Monday, March 23, 2020

Probably the fourth time I will be saying this now, but all of these blogs of my days are merely based off of my oh so magnificent memory. I have used my entire morning just to type all these out.

But, before doing so around 7 am, my cousin and I were playing Minecraft together. We are still on a call together while I am typing this. currently he is screaming how his team won. Honestly I don’t know what game he is even playing.

He just asked “When will you be done?” as if he doesn’t have any work to do either. I’m going to laugh when his mom kicks him off his computer.

Today isn’t any different from the rest. I watched a lot of music videos actually. I also cleaned my room because the build up was sort of bothering me. Typing this now, it’s already a mess again.

I played more games with my cousins and my friends joined. More screaming and whistling and dirty jokes and- I don’t think I need to say more.

I took once again, the millionth nap of the week. I woke up at 10 pm, I was going to go back to bed, but I had noticed my friends were still in Discord, so I joined their call for at least an hour and then forced myself to leave and go to sleep.

Turns out I had lied to myself and ended up staying up till 2 am. During the night my sister brought me Taco Bell, and we watched Youtube on our TV for awhile.

Then, finally, I went to sleep.

Saturday, March 21, 2020

It is finally Saturday, not that I have done anything productive over this time off, but I went with my mom to take the dog for a walk at the park. I was actually pretty surprised to find some people at the park were wearing face masks. Even my mom said I shouldn’t even be walking next to her, which I honestly was almost offended but obviously it was just because she was afraid of catching corona.

Outside it was extremely windy and cold, despite how sunny it was out. My mom and I couldn’t take it, and we left just a few minutes of walking the dog up and down the sidewalk. We had thought about stopping at Aldi’s before we went home, but my mom was too tired, so we went home in a short span of minutes.

When we got home we decided we wanted to do something together, so my mom and I rented a movie and ate a bunch of food (actually I ate all the food but that’s not important).

Funny enough, we rented an old barbie movie, and then thinking back on my childhood I realized just how cringey the movie was, I almost didn’t want to finish the movie. But, I finished the movie anyways, it was a movie I watched a lot when I was younger so I decided its only worth it to follow through.

Friday, March 20, 2020

Nothing has changed, I don’t think you should have expected much from me. I have basically been watching a lot of videos, movies, The Office, and playing Minecraft- which really I have noticed is the only game I really play at all.

I have gotten in better contact with my younger cousins over this break, we have been texting each other and playing games online. Mostly Minecraft of course, since they seem to be more obsessed than me.

Since I have a Discord server that my cousins and I use to talk, my friends will also join our games and it becomes pretty chaotic. Either we are screaming into our headsets or we are just straight up vibing so no questions asked I guess it’s pretty fun.

As said previously before, I had pulled an all-nighter, and drew on my wall. I still haven’t erased it. I guess that drawing is going to be there forever.

At about 3 am I finally went to sleep, doesn’t mean I would stay asleep however. I woke up at 6 am, and just stayed awake. Eventually I think I took a nap, I don’t really remember, but I know I stayed awake late at night and just played games with my friends. I’m hoping I can see those friends soon.

I am actually pretty sad, however, because my birthday is in April (April 21st) and I don’t think I will be able to celebrate my birthday anymore. I was going to go to Great Lakes Crossing with my friends, along with friends I haven’t seen in a long time, so I was really disappointed about the quarantine landing just near my birthday. I doubt the stores will be open.

But, I may be getting an iphone for my birthday so that’s cool and I’m excited for that. And my friend said he’d buy my new headphones and if he doesn’t follow through with that then I’m going to be upset.

The drawing now permanently etched onto my wall

Still catching up on all the blogs I didn’t write on time!

More texting, More eating, More sleeping, More gaming, nothing much has changed.

I haven’t done any homework really, but then some of my teachers announced that there wouldn’t be any work to do and it would be postponed until March 23rd (or Monday, you could only guess what I am doing right now).

Youtube and Netflix, along with Minecraft and Snapchat have been my saviors during this quarantine, because I miss leaving the house, even if I didn’t really leave the house at all before. I just find it unbelievable that stores are closing, restaurants are shutting down only to drive thru, and I can’t even leave the house.

I did nothing today. I primarily stared at the wall and ceiling. Kind of hard not to when you have a loft bed and the ceiling is 3 feet away from your face. I actually pulled an all-nighter and luckily so did my friends. We were texting all night, and I ended up drawing on the wall. Now there is a anime drawing on my wall and I’m too lazy to erase it.

Tuesday, March 17, 2020

Honestly if you think I’m actually writing this on March 17th, that’s funny. It’s actually March 23rd and I’m just writing in first person from what I do on this day, but you know what at least I’m doing my work.

I am so happy that this quarantine happened. I am able to play games with my friends I don’t live by anymore. I’ve basically been on Minecraft and Discord all week aside from doing chores and sleeping. Just lots and lots of texting to my friends and family.

My family is actually worried about the corona virus, really I’m not worried at all. Sure, I should be, I sort of am, but I don’t think being super worried about it will make it any more bearable either. It’s kind of annoying actually. My parents won’t let me leave the house anymore. I can’t even walk to my friend’s house right down the street.

Monday March 16th, 2020

Marissa left my house and now I’m by myself with my sister, which isn’t all too bad. My parents made us clean out the basement, though, which I find funny since the basement is still messy as hell. For the rest of the day, however, I just relaxed.

I didn’t do any homework, just like I said I wouldn’t (which really I’m not surprised at all). Not much happened today.

Gnomes
Aspen found a Dr. Suess book

Today I had a lot of fun, more than I should have expected, however I did get a bit frustrated and exhausted. I had walked to the store with my friend, Marissa, and my sister, Aspen. We had originally tried walking to Taco Bell, but they were closed only to drive thru, so we had to go somewhere else.

When we could finally make up our minds to go somewhere, we walked towards “Christmas Tree Shops”. I think that’s what the store was called, I honestly forgot. IT was a big store right across from Taco Bell. While we were inside, we took a bunch of photos of each other. A bunch of chaotic things came out of that.

Marissa screamed in the store, Aspen kept dropping things and screaming with Marissa, I climbed the employees only staircase, but you know what who cares we were 7 minutes out before the store closed no one knew we were goofing off.

Then, we walked down the parking lot to Dollar Tree, where we all bought some beef jerky, energy drinks, and soda. Marissa spent the night and we all hung out. That was pretty much my entire Sunday. I don’t think I will really do any of my school work tomorrow.

Saturday, March 14

I’m honestly pretty happy about the quarantine. No school and I don’t have to deal with people I don’t want to deal with. Simply said, I don’t have to go outside, unless I want to. I don’t have to talk to people, unless I want to. I don’t have to do homework, until my parents force me to.

Sure I know after awhile I’m going to be bored out of my mind but again, at the moment I don’t care. I am just going to relax and It’s going to be amazing. Of course, my parents will make sure I get something done. I’ll just hang out with my friends until my mom gives me some chores to do.
