The Aspergirl Diaries: Community Quarantine Week 19

The past couple of weeks definitely took a toll on me, which resulted in me trying to take it easier although I still had to balance work with chores. That, being more kind to myself, having a more positive attitude, and more sleep helped improve things a lot!

The Aspergirl Diaries: Community Quarantine Week 15

I cannot believe that we have reached the end of June, and with that, half a year has just literally gone by. This also means that its time to take stock of the first half of the year and plan for the second half, and although it may seem like this year is a weird one, I’m pretty sure that if you take a good look and what you’ve accomplished, especially during the quarantine period, you might see that you’ve actually grown a little bit more, more than you expected.¬†

The Aspergirl Diaries: Community Quarantine Week 14

The month of June is going by so fast! It seems like we just started the month and now we are going into the fourth week of June! I still can’t really make heads or tails of this year at all, but this past week was pretty tiring yet fun for me.¬†

Unsurprisingly, our government also recently¬† announced that the lockdown will be extended until May 15, which means that my current routines will be my new normal until then. However, despite being two months in, I feel that I still haven’t gotten to the level of my ideal current routine, but it’s getting there.

The Aspergirl Diaries: Community Quarantine Week 5

At this point in time, I thought that things would be a bit more normal, or whatever the normal feels like nowadays. However, week 5 proved to be a little bit more emotional than I expected- maybe because I’m interacting with my family more now compared to the previous weeks, or because I still have some pent up emotions that haven’t come out yet since more than a month ago. Whatever the case is, I think I should let go of that expectation of wanting at least one week that feels “normal”, because it will just make me disappointed. I still have a long way to go when it comes to “letting go” of expectations, no matter how small they are.

The Aspergirl Diaries: Community Quarantine Week 2

After the first week in quarantine, I thought that I pretty much had things under control as I already had a nice time blocked schedule in place, and I had goals that I wanted to achieve by the time the quarantine ended. However, life seems to have a way of throwing overwhelming curve balls which keeps you on your toes and makes you run on pure adrenaline for a while. However, it does end up giving you life lessons and timely reminders; and the hope that a certain point, it won’t be as overwhelming as you thought it was before.
