Quarantine Diaries Part I

 

    I should have started this a while ago, I read a post from Leandra M. Cohen founder of Man Repeller. Her blog was my inspiration behind for my blog, she shared something personal about a fight with her spouse and her mom challenges during this quarantine.

We are in a current situation when we don’t know when is this going to end, are things going to be normal? At the beginning of this pandemic, I took it with a great alert but hoped that it would end in two weeks. The first few weeks I was very driven to do all of the things that I have not been able to get done while working and going to school full time. I started taking financial courses to get better on my finances, working out more consistently, working on my illustrations just staying busy. I can’t lie I been having my ups and downs, lots of challenging moments with my husband, and up to this point, a bit stressed.

I feel like everyone is dealing with uncertainty, what’s going to happen? No one has an answer, all we can do is patiently wait ( I been learning about patience a lot) and hoping for the best. Today I was applying to freelance work, trying to make this money someway somehow. Missing work dearly, my co-workers, my desk with my two big display screens, and my plants which are probably dead by now since they haven’t had water.

I am tired of not feeling enough, I am doing the best I can and I know for sure you are too. If tomorrow I lay on my bed all day, I will not feel guilty I will enjoy it and just rest. As a creative it’s so hard, we need to see the world outside. Just because there is this amount of hours of freedom. Sometimes the creative switch does not turn on. So for any creatives out there take your time, do what you can and when inspiration hits let it hit, it’s not a big deal if you don’t just get up a create a masterpiece. Feel free to share anything and let me know how this season is going for you.

 

With Love,
