Students Share Their Quarantine Hobbies


By Chris Mezza, Staff Writer

 Spending the past two months in quarantine has been tough on everyone, but it’s a great time for students to relax and develop their hobbies. Whether it’s learning how to play the guitar, to simply watching new movies, everyone can find a hobby for when they’re not working on school assignments. 

“I spend a lot of time doing school work, but when I’m free I like playing games and watching movies and TV shows,” said Dylan Miquita, a sophomore.  “I’ve also been able to catch up on books that I’ve wanted to read. I’ve been waiting to watch Parks and Recreation for a while, and I’ve started watching that in quarantine. Netflix and Amazon have tons of stuff to watch to help me pass the time,” he adds.

 An article was recently published about ways to schedule and maintain a hobby, for those attempting to find a creative outlet. Another article entitled, “The Ultimate Student Survival Guide,” talks about creating a workout schedule, meditation, yoga, as well as taking online courses.

Junior James Higgins went into detail about how he has spent the time, “ I started off quarantine by playing a video game that was recently released called Persona 5 Royal. It took over one hundred hours to finish, so I was pretty entertained for a long time. When I finally finished it, I didn’t know what to do with my life because it was so good… Now I’m utilizing all this free time to try some new things, too. I’ve started to create digital art for the first time and now I’m trying to branch out into doing animation, as well. I’ve also been trying to stay active by going on walks with my family and by working out by myself inside my house.”

 “I’ve been practicing the guitar. I just learned a few new songs, ‘NIB’ by Black Sabbath, ‘Don’t Stop Believin’ by Journey, and ‘For What Its Worth’ by Buffalo Springfield. I have also been working on a new project for a TV class that I’m really excited about. On top of that, I have also been watching some shows as well because I got a free trial for Hulu”, said Junior Jake Higuera.
