Op-ed: Staying at home during quarantine

Priscilla Carballo, Reporter

In my opinion, with this quarantine going on I’ve realized that lying in bed all day is literally the worst thing. 

I wake up, get out of bed, go downstairs and eat breakfast, go back upstairs and brush my teeth, then go straight back to bed. On days where I have school, nothing changes from my routine except once I lay back down in bed instead of going back to sleep, I’ll get online for my classes. 

Now, this sounds like a dream come true, and I thought the same at the start of the quarantine but a few days in and I’m crying to go out and do something. 

I’m even willing to go back to waking up an hour early every weekday just to get to class so I am at least out and about getting my daily exercise, walking from class to class, and getting some social time with my friends. 

There is however a bright side to the quarantine. Now that I have more time to myself, I can try to discover new things, maybe a hobby, or start a project. The only downfall to that is I can’t really do anything arts and crafts because I don’t have any supplies for that, but I can still get back to reading, especially any of those books that I haven’t started that are collecting dust on my bookshelf. The sad thing about that is when I read, I lay down on my bed.

So no, you won’t find me on tik-tok showing how I’m being a productive human being during the quarantine. Instead, you’ll find me trying to get paid by NASA to lay in my bed for two months straight.
