Ahhh yes, another day full of random activities I really never saw myself doing before this.
I sit on the couch, cup of coffee in hand, trying to plan out what I would like to do.
Being that I not have ample time on my hands, I’ve started so many new hobbies since all of this began. And I’ve made so. much. bread.
Scones, banana bread, naan, baguettes, you name it.
Here, look at all these attempts I made to be a food photographer!
Anyway, in my search for fun recipes, I stumbled upon a cool New York Times Travel article showing what people’s weekend plans were while in quarantine. So I wanted to do my own version. I asked my Instagram followers how they were handling this strange period of life, and here’s what they had to say.
“My moment outside the house is a daily walk in the park with my roommate. Live for those.”
“I work a lot.”
“Reading and running!”
“Obsessively trying to learn German on Rosetta Stone.”
“I’ve been planning out my career future as much as I can.”
“Been meditating, reading books, cooking and cleaning. Staying busy is key.”
“I’ve started streaming video games on Twitch and found a great community!”
“Some days it’s Animal Crossing all day, others I create videos for YouTube.”
“Watching a TON of movies, which I never do.”
“Writing excerpts for a book. And binge watching community and Alison Roman vids.”
“Netflix and baking.”
“Applying for a Fulbright Scholarship and Master’s program in Asian Studies.”
“Playing a lot of Angry Birds and cooking!”
See? We’re all kind of doing the same things. Cooking, baking, working out, working, studying, relaxing, stressing. It’s a giant conglomeration of everything all at once. Which is kind of fun? But kind of not? (But hey, it’s weirdly bonding for everyone.)
P.S. I’d like to say thank you to all the health care workers that I know personally (and even those I don’t) for your continued hard work during this stressful time. You are all making such big sacrifices, and my prayers are with you.
Though distance separates us physically, I am in your corner. Please do not hesitate to reach out if you need any help. I am eager to provide whatever I possibly can, even if it’s a simple word of encouragement!
