Yeah, so I waited so long to finish this post that I’m actually done with the quarter. I will be writing about that tomorrow maybe but who knows when it will actually get posted.
[ORIGINALLY WRITTEN LIKE A FEW WEEKS AGO OR SOMETHING I CAN’T KEEP TRACK OF THE DAYS ANYMORE]
Hi! It’s been a really really long time since I posted. I thought about keeping up to date with my posts but not much has happened and I’m sure that reading about the nothing that I’m doing is not going to be that exciting. But I felt like I should post because some stuff is kind of happening.
First off, about this whole quarantine thing, I am totally fine with it. I absolutely love having an excuse to not go anywhere or do anything except be in my room and work on the stuff I want to work on. Although, I’m a little bummed that I have to do all this schools stuff when I have so many personal projects just roaming around in my head. But it’s ok.
Class, but Online
Having to do class on Zoom is probably the hardest test my sub-par attention span has ever had to face, and let me tell you, I am not doing super great at it. I sure don’t want to give you the impression that I am not doing my class work and all that (because I am) but golly it’s so hard to stay focused sometimes. For the first few weeks, I didn’t have a chair to sit on, so I sat on the floor. I like sitting on the floor anyway because I can kind of squirm around and pick at the carpet during class and no one can see because my laptop is propped up on a stool. I told my mom not to get me a chair but she got me a chair anyway. I sat in it for a week or two, but it doesn’t really roll on the soft carpet and I can’t squirm as much as I would like. So I put the chair in another room and now I’m back on the floor. Thanks, anyway mom.
Going Outside Sometimes
Don’t worry, I do leave my room occasionally. My parents and I went hiking a few times at King’s Gap. we took our little, old dog Bowie and he is very slow but he powers through! I took some nice pictures!
I also had done a little design for the side yard at my grandparent’s house! I ordered plugs from North Creek Nursery and my parents and I went up to State College to plant them while maintaining a safe distance! The featured image on this post is of my lovely parents trimming a tree in the back yard.
There have been so many handsome and beautiful birds at our feeder! We had a pair of Bluebirds nesting in our bird box and also got a visit from some Orioles passing through! Very exciting! We have been watching the baby bluebirds in the box. Here they are:
And here is the male Bluebird at the feeder
They have since flown the coop, but a couple (the same one perhaps?) is eyeing the vacant property.
So that’s about everything that happened and now the quarter is over. Stay tuned for more thoughts and poorly crafted sentences about more things at some point in the future, hopefully tomorrow.
