Below are some things I've done to curve my boredom as I try my best to quarantine myself for my and other's health during this time.


This Spring I was on and off binging the 2019 version of the anime Dororo. Its storyline was really interesting, as the main character, Hyakkimaru, having being born without limbs, hunts demons in order to take his body parts back, while traveling with his companion, Dororo. It can be pretty dark and sad, but Hyakkimaru has swords for arms and how could you not like that? If you're looking for a great adventure anime, I would highly recommend.

COD Mobile

Call of Duty Mobile just came out with the new Ranked Season 4, entering the month of April, adding a lot of new content to the game. I was disappointed at the start of the season, but since the new additions, the game has been way more fun. Currently, they've added in 2v2 showdown with randomized load-outs, added back Warfare mode to Battle Royale (which I'm very happy about), and lastly added a lot more time-limited, and much more obtainable, tasks for credits, weapons, and loot, and that can be gotten from leveling up in Ranked Matches. Overall, with these additions, I'm very pleased with how the game is playing out right now and look forward to what they do in the near future.

New Music

There has been a lot of new heavy music to come out this Spring ranging from Code Orange to Testament, Heaven Shall Burn, and Suicide Silence, there have been a lot of awaited albums published and a lot more to come, which gives you something nice to do while in quarantine. Code Orange, iconically at their record release show, live-streamed it to fans worldwide, as it was going to be closed to the public because of the COVID-19 virus, which was pretty cool. Other than that I've just been exploring more of heavy music in general, delving into more old school death metal and researching more about those that have pioneered heavy metal subgenres and built what heavy music is today., a good use of my free time.

Physical Health

With everything going on right now and taking necessary precautions to stay safe and protect those around me, I've focused a lot on my physical health. Right now until the end of the semester, I'm at a caloric deficit, or "cutting" as others call it, in order to not particularly lose weight, but lose excess fat. By being inside a lot more than I'm used to it is way easier to just sit around all day, but I have been doing a lot of at-home workouts in order to stay in shape. Also, with most places doing takeout now, it's easier to portion control my food and drink plenty of water so I stay hydrated throughout the day so I'm not so tired.

Keeping Connected

At this time, I've been keeping up more with friends and family, a lot more than usual as I'm not currently in a position to see them face to face on a regular basis. Social isolation makes it easy for people to feel lonely at times, but keeping up with people every week helps. Zoom has been great for this process, making it easy to call people at any time. It's times like these that I'm thankful for my and my family's good health.

Leaving My Backpack In The Library

Views about society and the stranger sitting right across from me


As a college student, my backpack is an extension of myself in many ways. It contains my notes, pens, and computer vital for my success in college. It contains the snacks and water bottle I need to survive long days on campus. It also contains the "in-case" items that help put my mind at rest if I forgot something from home: extra hair ties, masks, and that backup-backup snack. With so much in my backpack important to me and my life on campus, it is no wonder that I can get apprehensive about it when it is not with me or in my line of sight. And that makes me wonder.

'Venom: Let There Be Carnage' Film Review

Tom Hardy and Woody Harrelson lead a tigher, more fun sequel to 2018's 'Venom'

Photo Credit: Sony Pictures Entertainment – YouTube

When Sony announced that Venom would be getting a stand-alone movie, outside of the Tom Holland MCU Spider-Man films, and intended to start its own separate shared universe of films, the reactions were generally not that kind. Even if Tom Hardy was going to take on the role, why would you take Venom, so intrinsically connected to Spider-Man's comic book roots, and remove all of that for cheap action spectacle?
