Due to the holiday, we decided to tack on an extra few days. Throughout quarantine, I’ve had the same thought, ‘why do I even need to take days off when I’m not going anywhere?’ I’ve taken a few days here and there to give myself the longer weekend and I’ve never regretted it. Since quarantine began, we’ve made a conscious effort to stay productive. Even though there were many articles saying you didn’t have to do anything because it was a pandemic, I knew in my core that that wasn’t me. Every day had its routine and I’m proud of all that I’ve had a chance to accomplish during this time – time that I won’t ever have back. It’s that same time that I typically beg for when I’m set in a busy work cycle.
Today, however, was not one of those days. Going on hour four from my couch, this is the first time I’ve opened my laptop for the day. I consumed a dense pizza pastry for a meal in between breakfast and lunch and I’ve watched two separate Korean dramas. If this is all we achieve today, I think I’d be okay with that. Time is passing by slowly, but I’m cherishing each hour as it goes by because tomorrow it’s back to my life of meetings and phone calls.
