More news, as per usual, but good news – my company will be paying me for the next two weeks!!!! So I can stay home in comfort and safety knowing I’m getting paid this Friday, and 2 weeks after that too. Thank GOD. Honestly, I’m so incredibly thankful. I know that I’m one of the lucky few who doesn’t have to worry immediately about funds. I don’t know what’s going to happen in April, but if I have to apply for EI I will. And by then, the process should be more streamlined I’m sure, so ultimately I’m not worried. Now, my main concern is just staying home and staying healthy, and keeping myself busy.
So far, so good! Yesterday was a lot of fun – Olivia and I karaoke’d the day away, then we got ready for dinner because Adrian and Trevor came to join us. For our first family quarantine meal, we had lamb, mashed potatoes, salad and deep-fried pickles, LMAO. I’m going to gain so much weight if we keep up like this! I absolutely have to start working out or else I’m going to gain that “Quarantine Fifteen”.
Anyways, I’m just here chilling at Adrian while he works from home. It’s been okay so far – he worked, and I watched a little docuseries explaining various topics from dreams to mindfulness to astrology to tattoos and weed! It was nice to feel my brain working for a little, and I think I’d like to make a point of spending an hour or two a day to keeping my brain active as well. Download some crosswords or word searches, find more documentaries or docuseries I can watch in small short bursts.
Oh and, I got my ADHD medication replenished! Which is wonderful, because now when I want to choose a day to work on my book or focus on something, I have the means of doing so without getting distracted or losing interest too quickly or not having the motivation to start at all.
It’s only the beginning of the next two weeks, and no doubt these two weeks are going to feel like a month in many ways. I’m looking forward to keeping as busy, active, healthy and creative as humanly possible and making the most of this time we were given. Humanity is on pause now, but that doesn’t mean we have to distance ourselves from love, faith, laughter, connection, positivity and hope.
Anyways, I guess until next time! I’m going home tonight and spending the next few days at home, and then I’ll be back at Adrian’s. It’s not really any different than how regular life was, except now neither of us have work, and we all have so much more time than we usually did, LOL. Everything is in your head – just remember to put things into perspective and you won’t go stir-crazy.
Love and light always,
