New found hobbies this quarantine

I never thought of acquiring other hobbies apart from reading books, writing, and procrastinating. However, this quarantine gave me the luxury of time to explore and do new activities which I never thought I would do.

Gardening

I was never a fan of high maintenance plants. I used to buy cactus for the sake of buying plants at home. Whenever I buy cactus, they die. I don’t know. Am I not a parent material?

Still, I tried to take care of some plants. I just saw these online and I decided to buy some. Look at the leaves. The leaves are growing!!! 😀

Playing online games

I never installed games on my phone. I just did not like to play games. I believed that playing games was wasting time. But then, I was wrong.

Playing online games taught me to be patient. Playing online games made me honor my process in the game. It’s been a month and my character shows great improvement.

Watching KDrama

I refused on watching KDrama since the quarantine started. I believed that I could be productive by merely writing and reading. Also, I never wanted to invest feelings on it. Huhu.

However, as days passed by, I am running out of activities. Hence, I’ve decided to just watch a series on Netflix. I am currently watching It’s Okay Not To Be Okay and I am loving it!

Illustrating cutie-patootie doodles

I have accepted the fact that I am not good in drawing. But, when I started to doodle for the past few days, I’ve realized that I can draw.

I just follow some guidelines on Youtube, copy some caricatures, or just draw.

Having mindful mornings

I’ve appreciated bringing my pet, Max, outside. I have also tried jogging for an hour. I have prepared breakfast meals, too. I guess, these things are bringing good vibes.

To be honest, I am feeling more anxious about the future. (Wait, is there one?) I am in between doubt and hope. So, I keep on doing activities that are new for me.

Aside from working for my full-time job, I also do my best to post stuff on my blog on Facebook.

I am coping. I am still breathing. I hope you do the same, too.

What are your new hobbies? Share your thoughts? 🙂
