*waves to the haters that are still on my blog for some reason*
HOW Y’ALL COUNTRY DOING?
Welcome to my everyday life that the world has recently discovered is called “quarantine”.
For the past two years I’ve been stuck to my house with sickness, and I’m homeschooled anyway, so being quarantined at home has not effected my life.
Except maybe the fact that we are now rationing one-ply toilet paper and the skin on my hands stings badly due to overuse of alcoholized soap.
Anyway, I’ve lived most my life at home, and believe me when I tell you that I have ADVENTURES. In my own house. Yes. They’re lit.
Learn to enjoy this thing called quarantine, frens, or you’re gonna be one miserable enchilada.
But 103949020 completely different life topics aside, I share with you today some of my best quarantine adventures!
The Snow Cone Truck
You’ve heard of the ice cream truck, but have you ever had a snow cone truck come down your neighborhood?
I heard the melody one day outside and my sister and I were like… is that an ice cream truck?
In the middle of coronavirus quarantine?
Down our calm neighborhood?
I told my brother and he vaulted the entire fence to sprint and catch up with the truck. Video below.

Needless to say, we all got snowcones. Well, my brother got ice cream.
The Muslim That Fell In Love With Me
I can’t explain this adventure for the privacy of the person involved, so I’ll just leave y’all with that.
(Don’t worry, we’re not talking to each other anymore)
LET’S HEAR IT FOR THE COOLEST CAMP NANO CABIN & DISCORD SERVER THAT’S EVER WALKED THE FACE OF THE PLANET. Squad, I love you: you know who you are!
The Prank Calls
One afternoon my brother and I decided to prank call people. And boy did we ever have at it.
My favorite ones include when my brother tried to order a gluten-free dairy-free tomato-free pizza, one where I pretended to be a rabid feminist upset at a men’s barber shop for not cutting women’s hair, and one where we called a fast food place and all we did when they answered the phone was scream and then hang up.
I’m cracking up just typing this. ?
The Great Charades
Behold the epic game of charades my siblings and I played outside while eating the snowcones. We acted out my crush at church, a refrigerator, Jason Bourne, and so much more.
Here is me being generally ridiculous.
On a completely random whim one Monday evening, my brother and I decided to bake cookies. So we did. And boy, did they ever turn out awesome. And the cookie dough is out of this world.
Secret ingredient? Anything made by Madi & Russ tastes AWESOME. Fact.
The Man at Walmart With the Dog
Before quarantine but when Walmart’s toilet paper shelves were bare, we shopped for stuff to stock up on and I saw this guy with a dog in the cart. I waited for him to get off the phone, then ran to him and asked to take a picture of his cute dog. Thank you, stranger!
Doctors Thought I Had Coronavirus
So I had to go to the doctor for a weird symptom that is apparently a coronavirus symptom. I didn’t have the virus, of course, but I had to come at a special coronavirus time where everyone else was a possible coronavirus carrier too, so I couldn’t accidentally affect the healthy people.
My Coronavirus Ninja Mask
My other doctor told me to wear a mask when I came to see him. I happily obliged, ninja style. Yes, I’m 16, and yes, I went out in public like this. Should you be worried about my maturity? Probably.
And that, my friends and enemies (why are y’all still on my blog?), is only a small taste of the adventures I have beheld!
Other adventures include sessions with my writing mentor, working on my writing, celebrating my brother’s birthday, annoying more doctors with all my problems, my pastor being arrested for having church, movie nights, making stonks memes, falling asleep on a sedative medication and not being able to remember waking up, my youth pastor visiting and bringing us candy, making music, uploading to my YT channel I haven’t touched in two years, making a fort in my bedroom, and being kicked off a platform with over four million downloads.
Rest assured, no matter how crazy the world gets, I’ll always be your feisty neighborhood contrarian. You’ll either hate me or love me for it!
P.S. Which one are you? Do you hate me or love me? Have you had any quarantine adventures? TELL ME ALL ABOUT THEM
Yaaaeaay! You da best! I’ve struggled hard with quarantine because I’m extremely extroverted, but you just cured my depression!!?❤
And…uh…a Muslim fell in love with you??!? Wut? ??
Thank you for existing Madi!!!?
YAY HERO I AM SO GLAD YOU LIKED THIS POST. ? And yes, a Muslim fell in love with me! :’) He’s really nice but we decided to stop talking because of his romantic feelings.
Thank YOU for existing Hero! I love your comments and your whole personality!! ?
Aww! How sweet! I bet that was hard…?
It’s my pleasure!!?lol! Thank you so much!?
Aaww…how cool! (I am a helpless romantic) but of course you made the right decision.
It’s my pleasure!!lol!? Aw! Thanks! I really hope we can meet in person someday! That would be so cool!?
(Me too! LOL!) Oh my goodness, yes, that would be so cool to meet some day!
Wow, you have quite a lot of adventures in quarantine. Prank calling is a lot of fun or simply pretending to be someone while ordering food:) I actually played charades with my family last week and it was a lot of fun. Did you guys do a specific category for charades? My quarantine adventures are boring and mainly consist of watching Netflix, doing homework and occasionally baking? Also it’s not immature to wear a face mask( and you looked cute), legit everyone in my neighborhood is now wearing them .
I think I have a little TOO much fun, lol XD I agree, it’s so fun! And yes, we do specific categories for charades. Categories like famous people or inanimate objects. Also, baking is amazing, now you can eat deliciousness even during quarantine ? HAHA thank you ?
XD I’m sixteen too, but when I had to go somewhere and wear a mask I felt so ninja-y and it was amazing. XD Yeah, I probably should be worried about my nonexistent sanity.
I KNOW RIGHT XD Feeling ninja-y and being insane for the win, Emily :’)
This sounds more eventful than a trip to Universal(which, we were supposed to leave on Sunday, and I’m still not over that)!
Seriously, this sounds insane. Like, your pastor got arrested?! Like, legit handcuffs and cops and all?
That’s crazy. And the doctor thought you had the Coronavirus?
And, Aw that dog is pretty cute!
Ok, what exactly do you mean by a Muslim fell in love with you? Like romantic love? Or like, admired you?
Anyway, sounds like an interesting time. Meanwhile I’m sitting here and the most exciting thing I’ve done since the quarantine and all is order 30+ books?
Awwww oh no, I am so sorry Diamond ?
YES, he got arrested! He got a mugshot and everything! It was all over the news and people were driving by and shooting at our church. :/
Yes, romantic love! He literally told me he loved me :’)
Dude, you can have such amazing adventures in books alone, enjoy those books during quarantine ??
K I love you for your quarantine adventures
Ahhhh a SNOWCONE truck?! Luckkyyyy! I live way out in the country so sadly we don’t see any ice cream trucks, let alone snow cone trucks xD
WAIT your pastor got arrested for having church? Ugh that’s stupid!
Oooooo I wan’t to make a blanket fort in my room, it sounds fun right?
Loved this post, was grinning the whole time reading it ?❤️
And I love you for your awesome comments ?
AWW COME VISIT ME, we’ll go get snow cones >:)
And yes!! It was horrible. ?
Yessss, blanket forts for the win ? Thank you so much Jasmine, I love your comments and happy personality ??
Yayyy we should xD
I ended up making a blanket fort, yay for me!! It was quite hectic though, all my little siblings were running around through it and tearing everything down ? It was still loads of fun though 😉
Awwww no problem, thank youuu ?
LOL awww cute siblings XD <3
*sobs* the void ate my beautiful comment 🙁 bad WordPress.
But BASICALLY, I saw being FABULOUSLY dramatic that I was SO FAST yet someone STILL BEAT ME to first like. ??? ah well. And I don’t get first comment either, like I neglected our roleplay for several minutes for this ? sad, sad day when my speed is for nothing. *dramatic swoon*
But I LOVE LOVE LOVE these adventures! ? Russell vaulting a fence for ice cream is such a mood. So ninja. ?
And thank goodness I was privy to your love story, or otherwise I would have DIED from suspense, that teeny fragment of informatiom??? Cruel XD
That ninja mask? ?
Queen Olive out. *hair flip* the haters can eat the dust in our wake. ?
Most crazily, ~Olive
P.s. crossing my fingers that this gets through ?
I will never forgive the void for eating your comment and stealing your first like and comment ? But thank you so much for reading, I love your comments. ?
??? I know, I left the info so tiny ?
We love a good queen *bows* See ya, haters! ?
First and foremost, I love that Ninja mask. And because you are 16 doesn’t mean you can’t be a full pledged Ninja.
And then the prank calling. I love prank calling. It’s soo funny. One time we called two Chinese restaurants, put the phones next to each other, and they were like, “What you want-wait, you whaa-” They were so confused. xD
Also, why did you keep mentioning haters? Anyone who’s a hater of yours is a hater of mine! (Trust me, you don’t want to get one my bad side.)
And I’m not even going to ask about that little -uhhh- thing with a Muslim…
HELLOOO MARYYY! ?
First and foremost, THANK YOU :’) XD Oh my goodness, that’s absolutely hilarious! And I mention haters because I got a lot of them on my recent post about Habitica ?
You are quite welcome! Haha, we all thought so too! Ahhh, okay, just making sure it wasn’t one specific person.
You know what they say, haters gonna hate, but I’m just gonna shake it off [because it doesn’t matter what they think.]
Parenthesis are mine. xD
Awesome and I agree. XD
Looks like you had a great week! I watch a lot of movies, and tv show, and I go outside a lot.
Thanks so much, Raegan! Yesss movies for the win ?
I love how you’re still finding adventure amidst all this! And WHAHHHHHT i need a snowcone truck to visit us here! lucky duck
also … prank calls are so hilarious and just reading about yours brought back all the memories of the ones that my siblings and I used to do (maybe even still do 😉
and oof i’m glad you don’t have the virus! either way you somehow slay a ninja mask :)))
power to the local dreamer ||-//
COME VISIT ME, we’ll go devour all the snowcones :’)
Yesss, prank calls are literally the best ?
Thank you so so much for reading! I love your comment ☺️?
Haha those adventures sound awesome! I’ve actually been keeping a little busy in quarantine this week so far, which is good, because last week I was out of my mind with boredom. XD
Thanks so much, Emmie! Oh that’s great — I’m all for keeping busy and making the best out of quarantine! XD
Ayyyy! The Squad!! And your randomness is absolutely wonderful. That snow cone looks delicious. ? ?
The Squad is taking over the world ? Thank you ever so much, Danielle ?
You and your brother are awesome! Family helps quarantine be bearable. <3
Thank you so much, IrishAG! I totally agree — my family has made quarantine fun. ?
I loved the ice cream truck vault… I heard an ice cream truck go by my house yesterday, but it never came close. 🙁
Aw man, so close :'(
I just read an amazing writing post that made me think of you, here’s the link: http://nairamofsherwood.blogspot.com/2010/10/soli-deo-gloria.html
Thanks for sharing, IrishAG!
*slides in on socks loses balance and slams into the wall* I’m sorry I don’t know why this just sunk in now but did you say YOUR PASTOR GOT ARRESTED???
Most crazily, ~Olive
HIS MUGSHOT WAS ALL OVER THE NEWS DIDN’T YOU SEE??? He got sooo many death threats and people were shooting at our church… ugh!
nu I did not, I don’t see any news ? but eeep that’s scary ?
Oh good me neither ? yes ?
Wait, how did I miss this?! *reads your post again*
THE SHOPPING CART DOG
A… romantic… oh wow
Sounds like your quarantine is going pretty awesomely 🙂
?? THANKS WEEZ :’)
Hi Madi, sounds like fun! By the way, which AG doll should I get AG or Create Your Own? I really want to know what you think!
You should get whichever one you have wanted the longest!
I didn’t see a video, but there was audio. How did you make crank calls? Did you “block” your phone’s ID? Glad you don’t have the virus. I am not having adventures in quarantine, but my life isn’t that much different being in it. I am a home body!
Thanks so much for commenting! And yes, we blocked our phone’s ID. LOL!
Hi! At first, I struggled with quarantine a lot. A lot of things were canceled. My routine turned completely upside-down. My extroverted side was hurting.
But, I have so many things to be grateful for! Both my husband and I are working from home, and we still have our jobs. I made my home office more to my liking, after being stuck in a rut for a long time. We’re making more improvements to our house, slowly! Camp NaNoWriMo was a huge success for me, and I’m excited to continue editing my novel! And I’m finally back into a blogging groove after months of little to no progress.
I hope you’re staying healthy!
I’m so glad your quarantine eventually turned out to be not so bad, and I’m so happy to hear Camp NaNo was a success!! Thanks for stopping by, Laura!
Yes! I really don’t want to go back to my office now. We’re saving so much money in gas and tolls! My home office is set up exactly the way I want it now.
Working from home can definitely have its pros!
Absolutely! Now that I have the space the way I want it, it’s a place I want to work in.
First of all…You’re awesome! Wow, I thought i had crazy quarantine adventures…until i saw this. Oh, and BTW, I’m a homeschooler too!
So awesome to meet another fellow homeschooler! How do you do?
My youth pastor came and brought me cookies and a sticker book, so that was pretty cool, lol. Also you go to River of TB for church?
That’s so fun and yes I do!
