Quarantine Day 37-43: Is Quarantine Making Me Better?
It's been a pretty good week! A few Corona Journal entries ago, I mentioned that I was really starting to struggle with my anxiety and maybe even a little depression. Given the current circumstances the only way I figured to really deal with this was to just stay busy, stay distracted and keep moving. When I wrote about that I also pointed out that possibly wasn't the best solution, but it was all I had and time would tell. Well it's been a few weeks now and I'm starting to feel so much better. I'm even starting to think that quarantine may be starting to make me a better human...in…
Quarantine Day 30-36: Keep me out of HomeDepot
Starting with this entry, I have decided that unless something really big or really important happens, I'm only going to be writing my Corona Journal entries weekly. Although my moods and the ways in which I'm handling this new reality fluctuate daily, sometimes even hourly, for the most part I have fallen into a pretty basic routine -
Quarantine Day 24-29: Happy Birthday Mom
I think this is probably the longest I have gone between quarantine entries, but it's been a weird few days. In my last few entries, I mentioned that I just wasn't feeling myself. Whether it was the rain, my anxiety, the reality of such an overwhelming situation, or maybe even a little bit of depression; I just wasn't doing much. I was getting up in the morning at a decent time, getting dressed, taking care of my basic needs and commitments, but overall I was just going through the motions of the day.
5 places you need to visit when you come to Oahu, and 2 you should skip
I am by no means a Hawaii expert, but I did live there for nearly three years and in those three years I would like to think I transitioned (somewhat) from a wide eyed tourist to someone who called Oahu home. During my time on the island I had the opportunity to try a lot of the "touristy" things Oahu has to offer. I also had the wonderful chance to find my own favorite places on the island. As family and friends of all different ages, with varying interests and desires for their Hawaii vacation came out to visit me I was able to see what they really enjoyed and…
Quarantine Day 20-23: I’m Still Here
Last time I wrote an entry, I mentioned that I thought quarantine was starting to get to me and that the days were starting to blur. I was still being productive and getting things done. Now, however, I don't think quarantine is starting to get to me, I know it is. I'm still working out every day and I've been keeping up with my 30 day hula hoop challenge, but besides that I haven't done much more. I'm still getting my butt out of bed every day before 8 am, usually around 7:30, but I'm going to bed earlier and earlier every day.
Camping at Davis Camp
Last summer I went camping for the first time and I loved it. Every time we stayed at Davis Camp in Bullhead City, Arizona and probably in part due to my deep connection to the river and part reasons I will never understand, it is now one of my absolute favorite places.
Quarantine Day 16-19: I Accidentally Drank a $350 Bottle of Wine
Although I feel like I have continued to do a pretty good job of staying a productive human being the last few days, I can officially say quarantine has gotten to me and the days are starting to blur. I know I haven't wasted a single day this week. I've gotten up at a decent time every morning, I'm cooking, cleaning and working out. I stay busy. But, I cannot tell you what I have done for the last 3-4 days nor do I have anything to show for those days.
Quarantine Day 12-15: I Built a Shelf
I think I have managed to shake my quarantine slump I was in when I last check in, at least for now. Since my last Corona Journal entry, it's been a fairly productive few days. From cleaning to cooking, gardening and working out, I've managed to stay on top of things and stay pretty busy. My biggest accomplishment to report - I built a shelf!
