I am rarely allowed to go out of my house. I can only go out when the neighbors are in their houses. I can never do anything fun because that is a sin. During the day, I peel the paint off my walls to see if there are any holes in the walls. If I do find a hole, I dig deeper and deeper until I cannot go on anymore.

Then I just leave it. Sometimes, I find mice in the holes. When I find them, I keep them for a while, and then I eat them alive. When I do not want to talk to my family, I hide in my closet and just stay in there for hours.

I also try to kill my time reading the dictionary. Reading the dictionary is better than reading the Bible because you can learn a few new words from the dictionary while the Bible tells you how to live your life. Lastly, I draw on my wall that tells how I feel some days. All these things are pretty boring and sometimes even cruel. But like I have said before, I am not allowed to do anything for fun.
