Quaran-Tina

Wow y’all, it’s been a minute. I was having a hard time juggling all the things in my life and keep up with this blog. I’ll be honest – I am not a good blogger. But I just wrapped up another semester of grad school and will be taking a semester off, so I have some time to spend with you beautiful people (6 ft apart, of course). I thought it was fitting for this post to be about my time and thoughts in quarantine.

First of all, this is my work space in my “home office”:

The pup is between my legs. So is Olivia.

What I’ve Experienced…

I like to classify myself as an introverted extrovert. I mean, I’m a fun time when I’m with other people, but there’s nothing I love more than being totally isolated at home, alone, with no one having expectations of me. I made a conscious decision to live alone because of my hate for other people and I’ve never felt more confident about it until this pandemic. I can’t imagine having to be bored in the house and in the house bored with someone else. My patience for myself is low, let alone other people. I’ve found myself getting deeper and deeper in a slump of not wanting to do anything. The more I do nothing, the less I want to do. I’m at a point where I’ve done nothing for so long now that I don’t even want to talk to people on the phone or do any of the 30 craft projects I bought in a panic once the state closed down. Showering is a thing of the past. The amount of series I’ve binged watched is frightening. Aside from having two full on meltdowns as a result of Vampire Diaries, I’ve watched so many paranormal shows that I’m numb to it and EVP sessions are just comforting background noise while I’m working. You’d think it would freak me out, living in a 120 year old home and all, but I’ve developed a plan to punch any ghosts right in the ingrown pubic hair if they bother me. My lunch breaks consist of me closing my computer and continuing to watch Netflix, and then doing the same thing once I open my computer back up. My school work was getting in the way of me doing nothing so it was a real struggle. Thank god I took a semester off because I don’t know how I can continue to do nothing and go nowhere AND manage to get my assignments completed on time. All I can say is THANK GOD the Met Gala was cancelled! I think we can all agree that this quarantine is making me numb and emotionless and I am loving it.

The first few weeks of quarantine were really good on my bank account. I was too scared to even get food delivered so I was actually eating the food I have in my house and only going to the grocery store for fresh produce. As time went on, I grew more and more rebellious and currently we are in a situation where I spend a lot of money on DoorDash and I’ve done so much online shopping that its finna be Christmas on my front porch soon. I stopped keeping track of my shipment notices and probably wouldn’t notice if something didn’t show up. Two of my nieces and a lot of my friends have had birthdays during this time, so I’ve hashed out a good amount on gifts for others (my selfless plug). I bought a new backyard, too (thank you stimulus check)! Now I feel like I have a little oasis right outside my house. I think the pupperino likes it too!

Before
After. Peep the grass!
The Princess.

What I am looking forward to…

I can’t wait for bars to be open again. That’s it – that’s all I’m looking forward to.

Felt cute. Might post another later. xoxo, keep it spicy.
