This is a Sample Edgy Post
COVID or as black folks like to say the Rona has been a lot to deal with over the last few months. The goal posts have shifted and more than anything I hope we are all being easy on ourselves. Despite what that Instagram memes say, your time is not wasted if you fail to create the next million dollar idea during quarantine. There is a lot of value in simple things like catching up on sleep and family time during these odd times. With that said, I created a list of the random things I have filled my time with over the last month! Here are 10 Things I’ve Done During Quarantine!
Hosted a Zoom Party!
… that did not get hacked! I decided to create a Zoom Party with my family just to connect during these odd times. Everyone seemed a bit reluctant at first asking “what is the point” and “what are we going to talk about.” Honestly it felt like any holiday over at my aunt’s house. Highly recommend connecting with family this way especially for those who are 65 or older and taking quarantining really serious.
Checked In With Friends
… but also gave people their space. While some people are struggling without human interaction, there are quite few folks who are going full introvert and LOVING IT. I consider myself to be an ambivert somewhere right in the middle and even I have found the alone time to be enjoyable. I will say this check in on people but do not presume that everyone is in dire need of human interaction! Some of us are doing just fine!
Adjusted to Working from Home
Is it just me or do you find that you work more from home?? The day seems to never end and then there are teases. You can literally see all of the mischief you can get in to after you clock out! I’m trying to stick to set hours and have a dedicated work space. I will say that I appreciate being able to do laundry in between meetings or grab lunch and snacks from my full kitchen!
Got a Mini Skin Glow-Up
Listen there is one thing I refuse to do during this quarantine… put on makeup! While I will continue to moisturize and such, makeup is out of the question. My skin seems to be LOVING this break which tells me once I am back to work, I need to have a better makeup removal routine. I basically have been sticking to my face wash, drinking my water and staying away from makeup!
Bought a House
Yeah I just slid that in there randomly. Literally the week of the shut down, I closed on a house and rushed to move in. This not so little project is partly why I have remained entertained while outside is closed. I’ve painted. Unpacked. Decorated. Furniture shopped online. It has been quite enjoyable!
