STAYING HOME STUFF: COVID-19 VIBES

3

Stay home, Stay safe!

Oya I need help you people. How are you coping with this staying home shit? It is getting messy in here yoh! Lucky are you if the job is still happening and you are waking up attending errands as usual. The others..what are you doing indoors?? What is happening inside those houses?? A joke is going round that domestic violence is on the rise. I called it a joke because how can domestic conflicts be reported when this is the best time to bond and be happy with family ๐Ÿค”?! How I wish I was married! We would do all the Tiktoks challenges happening with wife ๐Ÿ˜‹. I’m not a good dancer though. I have tried many times recording myself dancing here and I end up laughing at myself. We would dance and laugh at ourselves, and watch movies, and cook, and workout, and get bored together. Staying at home alone is not easy friends. As I type this I just finished a cup of tea and pop corns๐Ÿ˜ . Funny right!?? I ate a reasonable meal three days ago! Boy I hate cooking ๐Ÿšฎ . I better be hungry and not cook. That should not be mistaken by a fact that I’m a good cook ๐Ÿ˜‰ . I can cook a very taste meal trust me. Sounds confusing?? Oouh yeah!!

And talking about entertainment I have watched almost every movie available in the world! Wait.. not world. I mean my movie person out here. I sleep at 4am every day not studying, but watching a movie. And by 6am I’m up trying to connect scenes for UNPROMISED. Writing is not easy. Especially when the story idea is a long hell of events. By 8am I’m done with drawing some rough work for the next several scenes of my story. I’m almost coming to a conclusion of the story plan for the narrative bytheway. You should stay tuned for a simultaneous release of the story parts. I cannot leak how many they are but expect a long story with plot twists. By 9am I’m already bored with life and wondering why someone would eat a bat. This Corona thing is just bad news. I had juicy plans for April meeen. Ni sawa tu! Did I mention tea?! No. Because I don’t take tea. I’m not a tea person ๐Ÿšฎ. I take shower and do some workouts๐Ÿ‹๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ . I have these two 1.5litre soda bottles filled with water so that I can lift them, then do press-ups, sit-ups, jumping, etc. I don’t want this lockdown to leave me with some big stomach.

Then guess what?! I’m a social media addict. I cannot do anything else without checking on WhatsApp, IG and Facebook. Those are my number one friends. I go there and absorb what is happening in the world, especially USA. I pity you guys. But we are praying for you so hard. You will pull through it stronger than ever. I have learnt that people in United States of America are not afraid of COVID-19. They are practicing precautions boldly without panic yet the virus is hitting on them harder than any other country. Nevertheless, President Trump is doing a great job over there. Meanwhile here at home we need musicians to sooth us with music so that we don’t panic. The musicians will be paid so it’s no big deal! Wait.. did I just say they will be paid??? Actually the government has set aside 1 million dollars to cater for that. What is wrong with us surely!!? Other countries are using every coin available to better health facilities and ease COVID-19 treatment yet here we are paying musicians as if music can heal the virus. You know what, I’m done with this social media. The madness happening is just too hilarious to digest. But I cannot just jump this treading girl going by the name Azziad. She is a proud Kenyan Tiktok sensation who blew up the internet after doing utawezana dance challenge. She is now at 133k following on IG. She has gained 100k following in less than a week!  I have been following on that girl for the longest time and she is the real definition of thick skin. With a lot of negative trolling she only choses to absorb positive energy.

I’m still on social media and its lunch time. Did you think I would cook lunch?? Not me ๐Ÿ˜‚. I will go out and buy some crazy fruits for lunch then pass by the movie guy to load my flashdisk.

There is something Iโ€™m forgetting to mention here. I think the government is wrong about this whole idea of masks. Why can’t they buy masks to Kenyans ๐Ÿ˜ท?? Not everyone can afford a mask yet they are saying it’s illegal to roam the streets without a mask. Why can’t they then give Kenyans masks??? If they have money to dish to musicians, why don’t they have money to buy masks?? I mean, what are the priorities here? What about the street kids? Where will they get the masks??

In the afternoon, I will watch movies until it is 8pm and confused because I’m hungry and I cannot go out because of the curfew. So I will take a break, play guitar chords, talk to two or more people then go back to watching movies up to 3am. I pause the movie and go to bed. Read some bible verses, pray then sleep. Lights off.

That is expected to repeat until this corona virus stuff is over. I hope it happens soon.
