Quarantine — Day 11

I just can't get bored

This post is part of an ongoing series in which I document my journey through the COVID-19 quarantine. See Day 1 for full context.

Random thoughts

I just can’t get bored. There’s so much to live for that I find boredom to be the antithesis of life purpose. That’s what I feel today after being 11 days confined at home. Those who see this as a torture should look inside and question their life - is it that miserable that they can’t live with themselves a few days? Or, perhaps, I’m just being too rude. I recognize my priviliged, though, and I recognize there’s people who are really living bad times these days. For those I do feel sorry.

Quick update

Got out of bed at 5am with a fierce passion to start my day. Worked on open source 5 hours straight; I’m making the most out of this dream, my dream of working on open source almost full time.

I also started writing a book today. I’d been thinking about it for quite a long time. Drafted a rough sketch and showed it to my brother. Dude gave me the motivation to start right away, and that’s what I did. The book draft will be here, in case anyone is actually reading this and caring.
