I know that coronavirus has had us all glued to our devices and hindered our ability to be productive these days. The weird thing is, I’m not having as much an issue with my devices as I am with feelings of boredom and lack of accomplishment. I’m a busy person and I like it that way because busy people get things done!
However, since I can’t even converse with my friends nor go outside anymore, I’ve been feeling less fulfilled lately. IT SUCKS!! I know this sounds weird, but I miss getting to school at 7:45 in the morning to get a head start on my school day, I miss my SAT sessions and piano lessons being back to back, I miss volunteering at the Church on Sundays and then planning a prom the very next day, I miss my two and half hour acting conservatory lessons at Zach Theatre. There are many more activities that I manage to fit into my schedule but I don’t want to bore you with those right now. My point is, no one expected quarantine to affect us in the way that it has. Everything in our lives was basically cancelled until further notice. I’m a people person! I thrive around people and what’s the one thing that I can’t go near? People.
Now that there are many free hours in the day, there is more time for thoughts to make their way into our anxieties. This has been very common ever since social distancing measures were required, and teenagers especially, are being affected. Well, I decided that I was done letting my boredom and lackadaisical attitudes get the best of me, so I created this blog to let my creativity lead the way.
I know, I know, it sounds corny, but is it really? Getting thoughts down in a productive and positive way can only spark motivation in the creative process, especially if there’s an audience. I have numerous interests that I want to explore as I grow up but I know that I can only truly pursue one thing. I’m hoping that writing about each one of them can shed some light on my true calling. I’m also hoping to share some of my experiences in quarantine, as well as maybe advice to my fellow generation, and share a few stories. I mean, I have all the time in the world to get creative so I might as well just get to work!
However, this isn’t just for me, I invite you guys to send me your stories as well! Who knows, you may find your passion in writing or cure your boredom through creativity. After all, this is creativity TONIC!! I created this website to cure boredom/stress/lack of productivity attitudes you may feel. I want to help spread positivity and spirit through any stories and thoughts that you or I may have. I want to help people see the good in the world right now, which is what art is truly about.
To be honest, let your pen fly free here! This is a virtual, safe space where you can truly write anything, it can be a question that you have or a simple thought. I challenge you to see the more in the world. I know that sounds a little grammatically funky but it is true. Think outside the box and see what your exotic mind comes up with.
After all, Einstein never accomplished anything by believing that THIS was all the world had to offer!
Thanks so much for joining me on this journey, let’s get started!
