For me, it's day 58 of jobbing and staying home.
Like most of you, I can get bored. Sometimes, I actually enjoy feeling bored as it's been so rare the last few years. The bored feeling is like when I was 9 years old: forced to stay home and no resources to leave, nothing on TV and no Internet. These days, TV and Internet can be boring.
Am I the only one that finds most of these Zoom concerts and events boring? Like I'm watching TV and watching other people live?

If you are trying to journal, or someone you know is trying to journal, Julie Balzar has kept up an art journal for YEARS. She might go page to page, but she does some back tracking and redesigning and adding of paint or papers. You can find her at https://balzerdesigns.typepad.com/balzer_designs/2020/04/art-journal-every-day-abstract-page.html where she also shows an abstract page. Explore her site for more ideas.
Me? I'm not really journaling these days. I do more like Julie Balzar: add, subtract, glue, write, repeat.
My watercolor kit, two favorite pens (Pilot Decimos from 411pens.com), two waterbrushes, all sitting on my sketchbook.
Drawing, painting both analog and digital, and other artsy things while living in Costa Rica.
