During quarantine I came up with a new hobby which was cooking. I watched videos on YouTube on how to cook food which I really wanted to learn, make and eat it to see how it came out. My family also tried it and they really enjoyed it. I’m looking forward to carrying on making new recipes and trying them.

I spent most of my time with my family as well as learning and getting closer to my religion which I really do think is an important thing to do in quarantine since I have more time for myself.

Furthermore I spent less time on my phone and helped my mom around the house and took care of my siblings. During this period of time when I was bored I decided to make a few tiktoks only as I’m not really interested in doing them.

Since I haven’t seen my friends for a long time and I do really miss them I decided to give them a call to see if they are doing alright.

 

We are so grateful to hear all stories of people coping with lockdown or COVID-19. If you would like to share your story please click here.
