Stuck at home?
Here’s something you could do if you’re stuck at home, in a single room.
How about reading:
A Journey Round my Room, by Xavier de Maistre
Or perhaps not. It was published in French in 1794 and translated into English by Henry Attwell. It’s a full-length book and the English, while wonderful, is challenging. It’s available free online at PublicDomainReview.org.
If taking on Xavier’s 150-page description of voyaging around his room while under house arrest for fighting an illegal duel in Turin is too daunting, how about another idea? Write your own journey round your room! You can publish it here (in the comments, if it’s short). Or if it’s longer, add it to our Creative Writing forum.
And if by chance you do read A Journey Round my Room, please leave your reviews here!

It a lot things to do at home, such as meditating, read book, or try something you never had done before.
If you had time, just try something you want.

It is very interesting to stay at home, it allows you to do a lot of things such as meditating or to talk to youeself, it permits you also to revise some interesting novels, stories, books for famous writers that you could not read during your students life process.
