It’s been a little while since I posted last, and while I want to get my blog back on track, I felt it would be odd for me to continue blogging without addressing the current situation we are in. I thought I would share a little update on where I am at and I also want to check in on you, and ask how you are feeling about Coronavirus?
Currently I am at home, as we all should be. My college has been closed since last Thursday, which is just a little over a week now and I still haven’t got on top of my assignments 🙈 As it stands, I should only have two months left of the academic year and I was really enjoying it. That’s typical me though, I go back into education the year a global pandemic breaks! Of course, I’m just joking when I say that, and in the grand scheme of things course work isn’t the biggest problem in the world.
I’m struggling to make any sort of routine for myself and it’s a goal of mine to write one up for the coming week, I don’t know about you, but if I don’t have something to focus on, my mind wanders and I sometimes have trouble bringing it back to where it should be. (I’m a creative being, okay? 😂) I really need to make time for the Headspace app again!
I ventured into town to stock up on some supplies this week and you can really feel a shift in the atmosphere, I know it’s necessary but it’s still strange.
I am trying my best to look for the positives (aren’t we all?) and I think the sense of community is what stands out to me most. I am seeing and hearing so many stories of local businesses and communities rallying around those in need at this time and it fills my heart with so much hope! Even my own college tutors are checking in on us all online and making sure we get sufficient help with assignments, it makes me appreciate how kind humans can be in the middle of a crisis.
I am also finding solace in the small things – which are actually important things the more thought you give to them – like uplifting music, the sun shining and watching classic Simpsons episodes to keep my spirits up, laughter really is so sacred!
For me, my heart is with those of our communities that are vulnerable, and the families already affected by this illness.
I know with time we will get through this, but we’ve gotta sit tight until then and trust that are so many things to look forward to when we do get there.
In the meantime, stay safe and know that my comment section or messages are always open ❤️
