What’s it like to be home during a quarantine?

Oh, it’s so fantastic.


I’m so close to going insane and it has nothing to do with the fact that I’m home with my parents, at all. No, more so, everything to do with my once introvert self, being in self-isolation and it’s not by choice. It’s because I was told to stay home, that I have no desire to stay at home. Maybe it’s the Aries in me, or the always wanting to do the opposite of what I’m told that has me feeling this way. Restless. Who really knows for sure. All I know is that, if given the choice of staying home for $500 or running free doing any and everything I want to do, outside…. I’d have to strongly consider the options. Restless. I think that’s a better way of wording it opposed to “cabin -fever” though I am feeling slightly feverish thanks to the air conditioning turning on and off, thanks auto setting. I shouldn’t be complaining. I’m thankful and more than anything grateful to have a home to be locked up in, with air conditioning, a roof over my head and food to eat. I am grateful. I just wish I had a choice in the manner but, oh well. I’m sure to get over that within the next hour. Anyways, stay home. Hug your family members a little bit tighter. Don’t be afraid of saying I love you and meaning it. Make pointless and dumb TikTok videos if you so please because it makes you feel better, or distracts you. Rad that book you were putting off. Do that research you’ve been dreading. Make this time productive… or don’t. Relax how you so please and don’t let social media make you feel bad about how you choose to spend your time during this pandemic. Your care, is self care. I’ve finished an amazing trilogy and watched the movies for it. I’ve looked into learning a few new trades. I’ve spoken and FaceTimed with friends I haven’t been in the best contact. I’m one week away from celebrating my birthday, again, shout out to my fellow Aries. I’ve bugged my parents and chilled with my brother. I’ve caught up on some great sleep and more than anything, I’m getting to know myself more and more because news flash, you are an ever changing and evolving being with means, learning yourself over and over again is essential and necessary so, do that and be shameless in it. Anyways, listen or don’t. I hope it maybe helped you or you at least feel what I’m saying in some way or sort. Regardless, I said what I said.

It’s ya girl


and I’m out.
