I’d love to go into great detail about my very busy weekend, but we all know that I haven’t done anything. Unfortunately, none of us are really doing anything anymore. Honestly the most exciting part of my days have been going out for a walk in the sun. BUT, what can ya do.
Instead, I figured I would mention some things I am loving right now! Things that I wouldn’t normally be doing, but have found a new appreciation for in all the chaos.
Yoga – I first started yoga a week into working from home. I felt like my body had been needing something that was much slower paced than what I was used to. I am constantly pushing my body to the limits at my gym, so I have been thinking for a while I need something else to counter that. This seemed like the perfect opportunity.
Calming Music– This came about from trying out yoga. I found after one of my classes, that the music just made me feel good, so I kept it on. Now I find myself playing it when I am just hanging out in the house. There is something nice about background music that you don’t really have to pay attention to. I also found it to be good music for focusing on my writing, versus my normal music choices which can be distracting because of the lyrics.
I look for a Yoga playlist on Spotify, and usually find something good!
Winged Eyeliner – This might seem silly because I haven’t gone anywhere other than for a walk, but it’s giving my face a little bit of life!
As much a I love make up, I stopped wearing it all together. I felt like being at home all day every day doesn’t warrant the effort. Besides giving my face a break from makeup could be really good for it!
But I’ve found that some winged eyeliner, and tinted moisturizer are getting the job done. I feel good, look good, and it makes me happy to put some effort into my appearance. We also have A LOT of zoom meetings at work, so it doesn’t hurt to look less like a slob.
*For any who are interested, I am a fan of the Nyx Matte Liquid Eyeliner!
The Sims 4 – This was a mistake. I downloaded this because it was $5 on Origin. I loved The Sims, and had all of them up until the most recent one. It took me 5 years to get this one I think. I figured now is the time to try it out. Ordinarily I feel spending an entire Saturday glued to a game is a giant waste of the day. But right now, what’s the difference.
I’ve always loved building and creating the houses more than actually playing the game. But since there are goals to complete for my Sim, I figured I would see this through to the end. Actually attempt to beat it. It’s not like I don’t have the time.
BE WARNED. This will take up too much of your time if you decide to start playing this game, or any addicting game for that matter! :p
Virtual Gatherings with my Friends– Before the Coronavirus, did anyone REALLY use FaceTime all that much? I didn’t. But now it’s the standard. I’m choosing FaceTime over a regular call just because I miss everyone, and this makes it more personal.
So far I’ve celebrated a birthday, and a baby shower over FaceTime/ Zoom. I’ve had two happy hours, and a meeting with my team that included face masks. And my friend and I still have our daily coffee break, just over FaceTime. It’s not the same, but it adds a level of joy that we are missing right now. I love that we have this option. Who knows when I will see all my friends in person.
Tiger King– I would be remiss if I left this shit show off the list! I started watching because EVERYONE was talking about it. In every meeting at work, this documentary came up. The level of discussion was similar to when the documentary on the Fyre festival came out. I watched the trailer, and immediately was hooked.
Now I haven’t finished it yet. I am two episodes away. But every episode adds another level of crazy that you just did not see coming. I have had such a range of emotions watching this, and I can’t wait to finish it. I am so mind blown about the existence of all these private big cat zoo’s, and still trying to figure out how Carole is any different than the rest.
Honestly, I love when things like this come out. They become this moment in time where everyone was watching and talking about the same thing. It’s cool to see people come together and focus on something other than a huge sporting event or something that is pretty standard for us. If you’ve watched this, please let me know! I would love to talk about it.
