    Improving Skills, Working on Pushed-off projects, Discovering a new hobby, etc.
    Thanks to the abundance of time which I now have due to quarantine, I decided to work on developing some new skills. I originally thought that my quarantine would be an endless blackhole of just anime and manga(manwha, manhwa), but it turns out I ended up becoming more productive than I was compared to pre-quarantine.
    Eg. One thing I've been doing is studying for the SAT's.

    Question: Has anyone else started becoming more productive during quarantine?
    Optional: Any special plans for the summer?

    I have come to accept that its ok to not be productive during this quarantine. Its not like simply having a lot of time is the only thing needed for that. It might come off as an excuse, but the growing uncertainty surrounding my future and the health of my family have been kinda putting me off.

    Yeah, I'm procrastinating more now because I don't have to show up to classes in person. Also I'm half asleep or scrolling through the internet during lectures since they're over zoom. All tests and such are basically open book so the pressure isn't nearly as great either.

    quarantine is called home based learning
    school holidays is called supplementary
    after school holidays is called block tests.
    I.e, no time to rest

    but I'm gonna do my best to procrastinate.

    oh, you asked what I did? I guess I spent 2 hours making half a cup of jam

    Nothing really has changed for me. I work at several hospitals. So no time to upgrade personal attributes.

    Plans for the summer... Work. Maybe hangout at the beach when they finally open up. I’m an island boy and I always have a need to see the ocean. Hopefully it will be soon.

    Ai-chan has a 36k words translation job. Ai-chan hasn't finished even 1%. The due date is in 4 days.

    Needless to say, Ai-chan will have to beg for extension.

    I’m so productive that my leg bruised from sitting on one spot the whole day.

    Jokes aside I made a donut in blender and learned a simple song on guitar, and I’ve improved my gaming skills so I’m quite happy:blobcozy:

    I guess well sort of. I've been picking up some programming and started learning another language although progress is quite slow due to my procrastination skills. Other than that I've been busy with Projects and stuff
