Covid-19 has changed life from being ongoing and active to humdrum and repetitive. With quarantine causing lives to take a shift and slow down the everyday process people can become antsy. Having unused and unreleased energy can be hard but harnessing it into crafts and hobbies can be an easy and fun way to keep life busy.
Every American life has been affected by the coronavirus especially those in California.
With the shelter in place shutting down almost all aspects of outdoor life CB’s Clayton Ketcher (’21) still managed to start a hobby that incorporated it.
Clayton expresses the reasons why his hobby of golfing will continue past quarantine saying “I’ve kind of gotten addicted to the game, realizing that its not only a sport to compete in, but also a way to spend an afternoon with your friends.”

Golfing is a wonderful hobby for those who don’t want to come into close contact with other people but still want to have human interaction with their friends.
Clayton says “it is a way you can really get to know people well and stay connected.”
In addition to outdoor activities indoor crafts are also delightful ways to let out creativity while being cooped up at home.
Avery Omega (’21) states she has fallen in love with painting “little did I know that I would find such a passion for it!”
Letting out creativity and trying new hobbies can lead to new found happiness and they can even make you money.
Omega happily has sold her paints starting from 10 dollars and has gotten as much as 50 dollars for one.
Harnessing energy into your hobby can also lead to breakthroughs emotionally and in self development.
Tavia Richardson (’21) started to learn guitar and says “I love watching myself improve slowly and I love using a creative outlet like guitar and songwriting to express my emotions.”
