Happy 1 Year Quarantine Anniversary
Today officially marks the one year anniversary of my first day in COVID Quarantine. One year ago yesterday was my last day at work. One year ago tomorrow I published my first Corona Journal Entry. And one year ago today I woke up a little scared, but full of enthusiasm and ready to make this time at home count. Little did I know that this time at home would turn into a year at home and wow, I would have never guessed where this past year would take me.
20 Things That Made 2020 Tolerable
2020 has been a pretty crap year for most of us I think. Yes, if you follow me I was pretty happy with how the majority of this year went, and this was by far not my worst year (although the past month has it ranking pretty high up there), but even through the best lens this year was full of stress, anxiety, change, and uncertainty. That being said, there were some things that definitely made this year a little easier, happier, and entertaining, at least for me.
Quarantine Day 84-96: My final entry
I have decided this will be my final Corona Journal Entry. I haven't yet been called back to work, nor do I know when that will happen. The country is no longer in full quarantine, yet also still not open. It's kind of this weird we all wear masks and are afraid to come close to each other, but we can go to bars and go shopping again. It's really very strange and I personally don't have any interest in going out to crowded public spaces yet. On top of all this, protests are still happening all around the country, American's everywhere demanding long over due change.
My Weight and 30 Day Challenges Round 2: Learning to Love Myself
Thanks to COVID-19 and the Safer at Home Orders, I've been trying to use this time to get my life back on track and ultimately start working on me again. When I did my last 30 Day Hula Hoop Challenge it really did help me not just feel accomplished, but it helped me start to feel different about myself. So, I decided why not start there again?
Quarantine Day 51-59: 2020 is still going to be my Year
There seemed to be an overall consensus that 2019 sucked! And I fully agree with that. 2019 was definitely one of my worse years on record and I was so looking forward to 2020. Then COVID-19 happened and there once again seems to be an overall agreement that this year has gone to hell as well. For a moment there I would have agreed, but I've been thinking a lot lately, doing a lot of reflecting and, although I was struggling there for a minute, overall I'm happy. I'm happy and I feel like I'm headed in a very healthy direction.
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 9-11: Looking Forward to Earth Hour
Quarantine is starting to get to me. I'm doing my best to try to keep moving and stay productive, but if I'm being honest with myself I haven't done the best job the last few days. I'm still not sleeping in really late, I'm usually up at least 10-15 min before 8 am, but I had been telling myself I would be up closer to 6 am. When I am up, I'm not being as productive as I should be and in all honesty I'm not even sure where the time is going. I haven't binge watched a ton of TV or spent hours upon hours on YouTube and TikTok.…
Quarantine Day 5-8: I Befriended the Cat
It is the early morning of my 8th day in quarantine, which means I have officially completed my first week! Yay! In my first week I think I have done an okay job of keeping busy, continuing to function like a regular human, and not becoming a complete slob. I only slept in until 8 am once this week, every other day I was up by at least 7:30. I get dressed everyday, usually it is only workout clothes, but at least I'm not living in my pajamas. I've limited myself to only one 20 minute nap a day, and I try to make sure that isn't a daily thing.…
Quarantine Day 3 & 4: My Mom Escaped
I made the fatal quarantine newbie mistake and cleaned my house way too quick. Okay, maybe I shouldn't say "fatal" given the current state of things, but as I said in my Day 1 & 2 entry, I apologize for any inappropriate humor I may use. Anyways, as I was saying, I screwed up and cleaned my house way too quick and now I'm struggling to find ways to kill time.
My Corona Journal: Quarantine Day 1 & 2
This was supposed to be my year, but as of this month shit has officially hit the fan, and for once it's not just a me problem. The world is in a really scary place right now. It was worrisome when it was happening in China. Things got even more scary as it started to spread across Europe. And now that the Coronavirus is here in the US, I'm not even sure my brain knows how to process all this.
