How to self-isolate without dying of boredom // TBR ?? Kinda. Idk

Hi, hey, hello and welcome to my blog.

Raise your hand if your country is on lock-down for the next two weeks and you can be fined for leaving your house without a valid reason! 🖐 Me.

Me and my dad went out this morning, just to the corner booze shop to stock up on the most important things: alcohol, and the whole time I was singing the song from TikTok “Don’t be suspicious, don’t be suspicious” and now it’s been in my head all day.

Basically today I’m going to be talking how exactly I plan to keep sane during these next two weeks. I still have class, kinda. My Latin and Greek teacher is making us do class for 2 hours over WhatsApp! This is the time we’re living in. But apart from that my plans include:

My expectations for reading this month were low since this month was meant to be jam packed with exams as it’s technically the end of term. With everything that’s going on though I think I can probably squeeze a fair few things in.

❄On the first day of Christmas, my true love game to me: a partridge in a pear tree❄

The Partridge stood alone in the pear tree. What is your favourite stand alone?

I don’t know if this is necessarily my favourite stand alone but its the first stand alone I had ever really read and it’s one of the books that helped convince me I could and would like things outside just popular urban fantasy and for that it holds a special place in my heart.
