Peeking In

Welllllll look who the cat DRAGGED in. It's funny because every time people asked whether I abandoned my blog, my instant response was always "NOPE...I just haven't had anything to say". This is something that I genuinely enjoyed doing at a point in my life, especially the good ol' days when I was bored at work with nothing to do...and then my brain would start cooking up posts. These days I'm still relatively bored at work but I feel like my brain has shut off/I lost inspiration. Same for Twitter, I used to have a lot to say but these days I'm content with just reading and retweeting. Is this old age?
On that note, I randomly realized that as time passes I've lost a lot of interest in the things that used to ginger me. Chileee I do not even know what that is about.

Newoos, how did I end up here? I was randomly browsing sites on the laptop and decided to google my blog to see whether it still exists *chuckles*...and somehow I'm here drafting a post with zero head or tail. But let's keep moving and see how it goes.

As we all know, its April 2020 and the Coronavirus aka COVID-19 is the trending wahala going on in our world. When I think about it, it's pretty insane how things escalated so quickly. I remember making a Costco run at the beginning of March and a lot of things were sold out, this was the beginning of the panic buying rage. And I was thinking "What in the world is happening? Why is Costco so packed? And why is all the Kirkland brand water gone?"...but the next day I went back right when it opened and everything was restocked with a relatively tame crowd. I got what I needed and bounced thinking "I'll be back in about 2 weeks for whatever else". Yeah right. In the space of 2 weeks, everything literally went to shit and now here we are. The entire situation is crazy and I do not even know what to think. At this rate, I'm resigned to a couple of months of isolation because only the Good Lord knows when we are going to get back to our relatively normal routines.

How have I been handling the isolation period? Chileee I am somebody who enjoys being in da streets and I absolutely miss the homies and the general freedom of just getting up and going. I miss the gym! Home workouts are absolutely not it aka I do not recommend. I miss popping into random stores like TJ Maxx, Homegoods etc and shopping for random stuff that I do not need. I miss dining out - eating in just hits differently from carry out in my opinion. I think that my biggest thing is boredom - I haven't really been in the binge watching mood, the reading mood, the mood to write in my journal, or the mood to really do anything productive with my life. I saw a tweet where somebody said that even sleeping is getting boring and I absolutely relate. I'm also experiencing the opposite of wanting to eat everything in sight aka no appetite..so haven't been in an eating mood either.

Buttttt, with all that said, I am incredibly grateful to be indoors in a safe space with all the amenities and food that I need and still working a job that pays me amidst this time of uncertainty. And an uncertain time it truly is. In the meantime, na to keep trucking and see how everything plays out.

Y'all stay safe out there. Hopefully it won't take me another 3 years to pop back in here. Haha!

Peace & Love.

Three whole years o. A miracle.
Always good to "read" you.

I don't think i've gotten to the bored part of this thing. I've just been finding random things to do. That don't require me using my brain because my brain has taken a leave of absence. Like outside of work i'm not trying to stress my brain. I miss the gym but i'm running outdoors now. And working out in my backyard but ya, homeworkouts are not the same.

I can't believe i haven't been inside Tk Maxx in almost two months. I didn't think it was possible. But i know my bank account is happy. Infact i think my bank account is the happiest about this whole corona business.

Hopefully read you again soon.
