How I am passing the time

So it's week three of quarantine, and over the last week I have become really bored of watching the TV, believe me I love watching TV!! But watching it constantly  for the last three weeks, and doing nothing else was really consuming my brain alot and I was loosing it ha ha in a funny way. So I really had to step back a bit and really find something else to keep me entertained, which I think will be another four weeks because the Government has not said that they will be lifting the ban anytime soon, so I am now really researching and finding something else. Don't get me wrong I love the TV alot but I only do that now for a few hours a day and not 24 hours a day. 
So at the moment I have gone back to what I really enjoyed a long time ago, and that is reading. Now before I stopped I was reading Chimanda Adiche 's half of a yellow sun, and thought I might as well carry on with the collection, so I have just starting reading americanah. It's a great book so far, looking at dynamics of relationships (I think as I am only on 100 pages so far so it's just a guess) but will keep you posted on how I get on!!

    1. What about cooking/ baking? Or even learning a new language? I have just completed level 2 food safety course!

  2. I started reading Harry Potter series again, although i am almost 30. I am enjoying it so much. Reading is so calming and fun. Great advice for people who feel bored in the isolation.

  3. The best way to leave the room by not leaving it is to read, I love going to different worlds and sometimes I fall in love in that world. I know I am crazy.

  4. I only read self-help books and they were of great help in this time. They help me not to lose focus and stay on the right track during this situation.

  10. Before this all started i read The History of Bees, and it got me thinking about the world and everything that we are doing to the nature. After the book, Corona was a real time wake up call.
