Quarantine Check

Every day feels like the movie Groundhog Day. I wake up, brush my teeth, shower (MAYBE), and eat breakfast. Then I have my whole day to fill. 

In the before times I had three jobs. I now only have one. I’m fortunate that my one job has kept me on the payroll but I’m not actually working. It’s a retail gig so until the store opens back up, I’m left with nothing to do. 

I fill my days with writing, Netflix, Tik Tok, long walks, pushups, and maybe a few burpees here and there. A large portion of my personality is introverted, so my mental health has been solid throughout this time.

But my productivity has tanked. It’s been difficult to find motivation with SO MUCH time on my hands.  

All this time alone with my thoughts has luckily provided me with some clarity regarding my goals and aspirations.

I feel a new sense of motivation rising to the surface. I’m ready for my next chapter. I’m ready to create. I’m ready to act. I’m ready for new experiences. 

I think I speak for everyone when I say, I CANNOT WAIT FOR THIS TO BE OVER. 

Any “plans” I had for the rest of the year have been dramatically shaken up. 

I’m an optimist at heart and extremely adaptable so change is always welcomed. 

This will all end at some point.  

In the meantime, I’m going to continue social distancing and do my best to be productive. Then again, I’ll probably just re-watch Parks and Rec. Maybe I can do both?? WHO KNOWS.
