Many of us are really feeling the affects of quarantine, as well as stress and fear that Covid-19 brings. We are living in uncertain times, and it can become difficult to shut it all off. I am no different.
“Working from home is the dream!” “I want to work from home so I don’t have to leave the house, and interact with people!” -Things I say regularly while at work During all this Covid-19 chaos, my company made the decision to have everyone work from home for the next few weeks.

I love to be lazy, and I can do it for far too long. Part of the reason forContinue reading “Weekend Recap: Quality Time”
