I think I’ve been at home for a little over four weeks now, and after the first week, I started losing my mind. I consider myself a ‘hyperactive extrovert,’ and I am proud of it not going to lie. I think it serves a dual purpose; it keeps me, and the people around me entertained, and I get to increase my communication skills as well. The way I kept my cool was by taking a step back from all the panic created and solely focused on what I had to do. I thought about all the free time I had and how I could be productive with it.
I’ve been doing a lot of art in the past nine months or so, and all that I’ve learned is through experimenting, so I decided to try some online courses, which helped me quite a bit. I also had time to relax and chill with my friends and play online games where we’re able to play and talk about anything. It spreads majestic vibes; it’s unreal, and honestly, I think it’s the best part about playing.
I also joined a few communities on Discord like Lost n’ Banned to learn and understand how people around the world were dealing with so much isolation and using their time. I also looked up a few things about the college that interests me. I even attended an IC3 webinar; it was fun! I learned how to do some basic video editing tricks, how to iron my clothes, and a few recipes — so I’ve been pretty productive!
If you’re wondering how you can unleash the creative beast hidden within, it’s relatively simple; a wise man once said, “The world itself is a piece of art,” so all we need to do is observe and recreate with a few twists of our own.
So please don’t let the quarantine take over all your thoughts and creative abilities. Stay safe and stay healthy.
