Loads of Free Time…What to do?

As you can imagine, many of us have tons of free time on our hands due to the coronavirus pandemic, and the stay-at-home orders. If you’re an essential worker, you’re still get to leave the house.

Me? Well I work from home writing articles. I’m applying at tons of places looking for remote work. Fun thing about journalism – a lot of it can be done from home. Very good during these times.

But of course, I’m not just sitting at home researching and writing articles all day long. No, I have a ton of free time just lounging around bored. Staring at the wall, thinking up some dumb stuff.

For example, I’m currently imagining three dragons that keep the world in balance and are pissed at human kind for destroying the beautiful earth and so are destroying humans…it’s interesting and based off a dream I had.

But also, I’m binging things like crazy. If you hadn’t already noticed, Rise of Skywalker arrived onto Disney Plus on May 4. I have yet to watch it, but I sure will be. I totally called it, by the way. When Frozen II arrived months in advance onto the platform, and there was no news on the latest Star Wars film…I just knew they were waiting to upload it on Star Wars Day.

But, I have been binging all the other Star Wars films and series. I binged MTV’s Scream on Netflix. Speaking of which, I’m kind of mad they went with a whole new cast and story for Season 3. I want Audrey and Emma back. I shipped them hard.

I’ve binged the first three seasons of House. Seriously, great show. I love Hugh Laurie. I would’ve finished the series, but I hate Amber (aka Cutthroat Bitch) but then I hate how Wilson is after (SPOILER) her death. Then I just hate the last season…I’m conflicted, okay?

I’ve gone through the last 21 seasons of Law and Order: SVU and watched my favorite episodes – still doing that. Speaking of which…be prepared for upcoming reviews/analyses of those episodes.

But I’ve also been playing new videogames. I’m kind of shy when it comes to videogames. I don’t like to break out of my bubble. That bubble is pretty much only Pokémon and The Legend of Zelda. Recently, I’ve begun playing Assassin’s Creed III, which has been remastered for the Switch. My brother said I’d like it, and since he was right about Skyrim, I decided to buy it. It’s pretty fun. I wish I had a PS4 to play the new one on when it comes out.

Ah, don’t get me wrong. I don’t just sit around all day staring at a screen! I also read books! Okay, some I read on my Kindle…but I just finished reading Stephen King’s The Tommyknockers. It was a hardback by the way. Really good book.

I really don’t get why people are so mad about having to stay inside their homes. Like, buddy…you have access to the Internet and can literally watch anything you want. Sign up for Gamefly or something and play literally any game you want. Or pick up a book. Fun fact, if you have an Amazon prime account, you have prime reading. And guess what? There’s a phone app for Kindle Reading. That’s right. Read a damn book.
