The homework is all open, its not hard, all it takes is ten minutes of brain power; ten minutes my brain refuses to focus for.

How quickly can a person go insane? I guess that I will find that out soon. 

It was a jolt of both pain and surprise that woke me up this morning; the jolt being my puppy. 7:15 wake up, breakfast, drive to my sister’s school, walk with the dog, then back home- that’s my new morning routine- one that I’ve never done before. It’s something that was unknown to me and foreing before all of this, yet known is the “new normal”. 

And speaking of “new normals” procrastinating has become a second language to me. Two history papers, one ELA essay, two desmos assignments, one google form, and two chapters to read and somehow, nothing got done today. At least with online school, I was pushed to finish my assignments and had people to keep me in check, but now, I can do (or not do) whatever I want to do without any consequences. 

Honestly, going into this elaborate mess, I thought that I would be able to get all of the items on my to-do list done. That I would have lots of extra time, and even though I do have the time, that time is spent on either Netflix or YouTube- every single moment of it. 

Although, having to be at home isn’t a walk in the park, I do get to eat my heart’s content of sugar. And anyone that knows me, knows sugar is my happiness, so perhaps, quarantine isn’t the worst thing that could happen. That being said, there are certainly horrible downsides to being quarantined. My case in point? SCHOOL. 

The hardest part of quarantine is the idea that school keeps going. My world keeps spinning without me in it. And as it does, it spins further and further out of control. So again I ask- how quickly can a person go insane? Does the answer change each time? And if it doesn’t, have I gone insane?
