I’m very thankful for FaceTime
May 10, 2020
If you asked me a month ago about how I was doing, I would have told you that I was perfectly fine, but if you were to ask me right now, I will tell you that I can not wait for all of this to be over. April has gone by fast, but not in a good way. Everyday felt exactly the same, and it felt like the entirety of the month was one long boring day. I will not try to pretend that everyday was long and miserable, but if I am being honest there were many of those.
The only things keeping me sane are my family, friends, painting, baking, and working out. However, at this point the only reason I workout is so that I can be in shape for travel basketball, but more importantly, bake dessert without feeling guilty. I can not explain to you how much time I have spent in my kitchen throughout this quarantine.
In my personal opinion Netflix party is one of the best creations to ever be made. I have watched so many movies and shows with my friends on it and it has been amazing. I thoroughly enjoy being able to watch something on Netflix while simultaneously judging the film in the chat with my friends. My friends and I have also done movie nights in my backyard. We have stayed socially distant ofcourse, but it’s fun to have late nights outside watching a movie on the projector, even if we are six feet apart.
Because today is mothers day, my family is going over to my grandparents. However, they will be sitting on the porch while we are on the lawn. It makes me extraordinarily upset that I can not hug my grandparents, but that is what it is going to take to keep everyone safe. I can not wait for the day to come where I can give my nana, papa, and Gigi(great grandmother) a huge warm hug.
My thoughts in this article are very scattered and all over the place, but I am going to pretend that I did that intentionally to symbolize my headspace through this time in isolation. I hope that everyone reading this stays safe throughout these terrifying times. For anyone who has personally been affected in any way by this terrible virus; I hope that you stay strong and know that there are better days to come.
