What are you doing during Quarantine?


Recommended Posts

I've also been playing Stardew Valley! Lots of video games, lots of neighborhood walks with my puppy. Lots of deep cleaning and some yard work. And wine. Lots of wine. 🤣

So since most of us are either in real quarantine or self imposed quarantine, school's are shut down (my kids' school just announced they are closed for the rest of the school year), going outside is

My husband and I are both considered "critical infrastructure", and we're so thankful that daycare is still open even though the schools are closed. On our "weekends" where we're off we self-quarantin

Pretending to be productive.    Recently we updated a bunch of stuff on my site, I've managed to overwhelm myself with threads, and I'm pretending to work on a story. But that's about it. I

So far, I have been good about not imbibing until AFTER work.

I feel like I've just now hit a real "doing things in quarantine" rhythm. Of course, there were plenty of movies and TV shows the first few weeks. Far too much snacking. Wondering how to entertain the toddler. Lots of pajamas. Now, I am finally reading!  I have missed reading. Earlier in the quarantine I didn't have the brain space for it between exhaustion and anxiety. Currently, I am working through:

Library of Legends - Current May Book of the Month Club selection
Outlander - Audio Book

I've taken up organization and cleaning, finally. People around me have had this energy since day one and I had no idea where they found it, but it came...late spring..but it came!  I have gotten a new shower curtain and counter top organization, working on under the cabinet, and hitting up the bedroom. Making my son a corner play area, and finally unpacking the last of last year's move in boxes.

I've been spending more time with my family, since we're all home all the time now, haha. But I've also been working from home and really got my new roleplay started. It's given me time to get back into roleplaying after being on a hiatus for a few years, which has been nice. Things have changed, but I'm adapting. I've also been thinking about starting to read more again. I just have to figure out which book to start with.

I built a couple model kits and binged all of Scrubs. Outside of that, mostly lazing about, gaming, and writing.

  1. Attempting to cook more recently because I'm learning first-hand that quarantine bod is REAL. Oof.
  2. Working (from home) way more than prior because my employer is evil and knows none of us have other plans, so work/life balance has entirely gone out the window.
  3. Creating a Dragon Age pbp rpg, because I'm a big DA fangirl and because I've found DA roleplayer communities to be full of kind and talented people. I love writing in that world, in general.
  4. Canoodling with my fella but ultra missing girls nights, so I definitely want this pandemic to end sooner rather than later.
  5. Letting my lion's mane grow wild. At this point I'm a cross between Cousin It and Chewbacca. I miss my stylist, too lol

I'm considered essential with my job, but they did send me to do work from home so that's a plus at least. I provide captions for deaf and hard of hearing folks on live phone calls, and the quarantine and everything else going on now has spiked our call volume. I love helping people and I love my job, but the call content's gotten quite a bit darker and more depressing and disturbing due to everything.

 

Aside from work, I'm mostly gaming and staying up in my loft area - I'm quarantined with two immune compromised elderly folks, so staying home as to not increase their risk to exposure has been better. My state's not been as hard  hit as many others, but we're seeing a decided increase in numbers currently, and yet there's pressure to fully re-open. It's... well, honestly - I'm struggling. I don't have a lot of faith in people doing the right thing so regardless of what level we're at, I'll be self-quarantining. 

 

Back to games - I've mostly been playing FFXIV, with Animal Crossing and Zelda games taking up the rest of my gaming time. Been working on getting coding fixed on my own site, and reading a bit here an there as well. Did a bunch of late spring cleaning, and deciding what winter clothes to keep for next year and what to chuck. I'm also discovering quarantine body is a thing and am trying to get that under control. <<

My goals are heightened since I have unlimited time. 

 

  • I want to create a social media presence to create content.
  • My goal is to start working on writing as many articles that I can and on as many topics as I can.
  • Start a blog where I can post consistently and have fun at the same time.
  • Finish building my writing site and come up with a concept for it. 
  • Finish building my AU Harry Potter Trio Era role playing site.

Honestly I’m just sleeping a whole lot at this point.

I decided this was the perfect time to launch myself back into college. I'm regretting it slightly but also partially enjoying the challenge. I'm lucky to have a great team that pulls their weight and is balanced enough that we get things done while also being able to write as well. Otherwise, working from home and praying I never have to go back into that building.

I also updated new things on my site, mostly coding things to streamline processes that had become cumbersone.

1. Updating/Revamping/Rebranding my site. 

2. A lot of online courses! There are so many free ones, so why not bulk up my resume/just do some learning for fun. 

3. Art, researching for my Art Therapy Masters I'm applying for too! 

4. And a lot of self-care where possible- I was really upset when my knee surgery got cancelled and it changed all my plans for the next year or so, so I've been coming to peace with that.
