Beating The Boredom Of Quarantine

I am blessed to be a part of the “essentials,” the group who has been able to keep their eight hour job during this age where the COVID-19 reigns.

It’s strange.

Besides wearing a mask and half a face of makeup on my eyes and forehead (top-half), not much has changed for me.

It’s surreal to live out my regular, pre-COVID life in a world with fewer cars on the road, strangers wearing dust masks (who don’t look scary and murderous), and a constant disinfecting of my hands.

Nesting — Organization, Finding Happiness In Less

I am in the process of nesting.

I read The Year Of Less** and a fire has ignited in the deep hollows of my gut. My gut hollows, if you will.

** Quick book review: great premise, though I didn’t care too much about her incredibly in-depth personal journey. **

However, I shut the book with one thing in mind: I must purge, organize, and clean.

2016 To-Do List

 

New years resolution 2016 todo list

At midnight, the ball went down. At least, I haven’t heard otherwise. We had a few technical difficulties actually finding the channel that featured the ball going down.

Instead, we chose to follow the satellite time on my uncle’s phone. This is how it went:

“Well, um… my phone says it’s midnight,” I shrugged.

“So does mine,” piped another, “kay! Happy Ne–!”

“Na-na-na,” my uncle squinted intensely at his phone screen, “not yet.”

We waited. We coughed. For fun, we began, “Seven! Six! Five! Four! Three! TWO! ONE!!”

“…not yet,” said my uncle. Finally, he smiled and leaned back in his seat, “there.”

So we yelled ‘happy new year!’ and everyone hugged.

Soon came the question of new year resolutions.
