With so much time on our hands, and a collection of cannabis seeds I had been saving for the last few weeks, I started our new project.
Boredom does terrible things to me. During the first section of the COVID lockdown, I was climbing the walls. I took a lot of naps, and watched a lot of Netflix, and did particularly nothing of any worth or value. My wake-up call came from our older sibling. Every one of us were chatting over texts and she told me how she started taking online classes to learn a new language. When I asked him why she was doing it, she said that she wanted to use this time for something productive. This inspired me to try and learn a new skill, so I decided to start growing cannabis plants in the garage. I had always wanted to learn how to grow our own marijuana, but always found an excuse not to do it. With so much time on our hands, and a collection of cannabis seeds I had been saving for the last few weeks, I started our new project. Within a week I realized the marijuana’s reputation as a “weed” is widely exaggerated, because this stuff is difficult to grow! I have a fresh appreciation for the calculus wizards at the cannabis dispensaries who can cultivate such tasty and potent weed. Through trial and error, I ended up producing a few sickly and weak marijuana plants. It was barely enough cannabis to harvest, and when I finally completed the project I found that it tasted terrible! I had to find a new way to alleviate our boredom in the lockdown, because growing cannabis didn’t labor for me. I will stick with the cannabis dispensary.
