At this point I probably sound like a broken record but... studying. Well, at least trying to. I end up just playing games and sleeping way too late.

With serious stuff, I've been doing a lot of school work as of late to hopefully finish the semester strong and strive for that 4.0. I've also changed majors from music education to economics and math, of which I will begin taking some courses this summer, so that has been on my mind a lot during this last month or so.

With recreational things, I played a round of golf in March, which would seem to be a fairly safe activity during this pandemic as it requires everyone to be outside, several feet apart from each other (especially since I never use a golf cart when I play). Shortly after this photo was taken though, our mayor in my hometown closed the municipal golf course, so I probably won't be out there for awhile. :P

I've been practicing some terrible graphic designing, coloring tbh, getting stuff together with my insta acct and admins, been getting stuff together for dcc, going for walks, playing with my animals, writing, and trying to clean and catch up on school work.

Hmmmmmm. I've been researching and analyzing the recent science behind CO*R*VID-19, catching up on late coursework, and tending to my garden, full of a wide array of veggies and flowers. As the world proves its entropy, though, I've looked into a few pet programming projects that have been delayed due to the hecticness of "ordinary" life. May time inspire us.

Video games and college work honestly. I feel like nothing has changed except for the fact that I'm out of a job.

Netflix too actually. I picked up a couple shows and watched them through to the end and realized that I have the ability to stare at a dumpster fire for hours.

:O A program switch? How has it been, the switch and all. From music to economics, that's very different. Was the process easy for you?

I've been doing lots of homework and online classes, but I've also taken to practicing the ukulele daily (shutout Fender, they're giving free guitar, bass, and ukulele lessons for 3 months!) my fingertips are pretty sore now haha.

Also been trying to read more books and learn Flutter

I've been doing everything but study. I'm a part of a student org and I'm pretty busy with that, we're trying to make the best of this lockdown and help out some local NGOs. Other than that, I picked up my old creative hobbies again, sketching, painting, etc. I've actually also started learning FL Studio which I've been meaning to do for a long time. Also picked up reading again.

It's weird, it's supposed to be a relaxing time but I've been so obsessed with trying to make the best of it that I actually let the stress back in for a bit, so I'm trying to take it easy now :) My mind's weird.

It's been good. Last week I spent some time setting up a plan of all the courses that I'm going to take over the next three years.

It looks like a pretty full load of classes, so I'll definitely have to grind these next few semesters, but luckily I've gotten pretty used to being busy after taking 18 credits this last semester. :P

Quarantine doesn't really exist here where I'm from anymore but we try our hardest to stay inside as often as we can. I picked up my old hobby of recording music again.
