Hey! My name is Shabnam and I am a student volunteering here at IWC.
I am going to start off by sharing a little about myself. Currently, my favourite songs are from the show Euphoria as most of you probably have watched it or heard of it before. All the songs are by the talented artist Labrinth. I love the songs because they give me a good magical vibe. They capture my semi-psychotic feelings and they sometimes make me feel calm. Some of my favourite shows on Netflix are On my Block, One Day at a Time, Selling Sunset, You, Stranger Things, Fresh Prince, and That 70’s Show. I recommend those if you haven’t watched already, especially You!! Btw I am talking about the show not literally You LOL. It’s a thriller about a guy named Joe who’s a stalker and falls in love with the first woman he lays his eyes on. Everything starts to escalate quickly from then on…
I am so bad at explaining it in a better way!! I promise it’s good! I also love shows from the 70’s- 90’s such as Fresh Prince and That 70’s Show. Netflix used to have a show called Freaks and Geeks, it was from the 90’s but Netlflix removed it for some reason. Adding to my list of favourite things are movies. I mean who doesn’t love movies? I don’t have specific favourites but watching halloween movies just hits different for me. I enjoy watching the halloween classics such as Hocus Pocus, Scream, and Edward Scissorhands. Every halloween I invite my cousins and we watch movies, make halloween treats, and decorate since we’re too old to go trick or treating anyway.
During quarantine I have been keeping myself busy by doing canvas paintings, watching movies, learning how to cook, and reading a book. Something that helps me reduce stress is going for walks and it’s a good exercise. The recipe’s I learned to make are chile and dumpukhkt rice which is an Afghan recipe. Something I wish I had done earlier during quarantine was to find a job to keep me busy and sane but I was too worried for my safety, and now I regret that because lots of teenagers are working and taking advantage of their free time. I just wish I realized sooner that I should make a resume and look for jobs but now that there’s two weeks of school left it’s too late. I want to get a job during winter break just so I can focus on school and work during my school breaks.
In conclusion, that’s all there is to know about me and how I’ve been spending my quarantine. Thanks for reading my blog post and stay safe everyone!
