The Aspergirl Diaries: Community Quarantine Week 36

I honestly can’t believe that Christmas is coming soon, and the year, especially the work year, is starting to wrap up, which makes me start to wonder on how much progress I made throughout this year. Speaking of progress, I did make some progress communicating some much needed things to my family, and I’m glad that they were very receptive about it.

The Aspergirl Diaries: Community Quarantine Week 34

Last week was a stressful one for me as last week was my first week truly back doing my online course, and the coursework this time around is really heavy, as I do have submissions every week. To top it off, things are getting pretty hectic at work, what with the year beginning to wrap up, and we need to start planning already for next year. As I was so busy, I wasn’t able to feel very balanced as I would push back the things that I know make me feel less insane during insanely hectic times like this. I won’t do that next time!

The Aspergirl Diaries: Community Quarantine Week 33

Last week felt like a strange week, as I’m used to being stressed during the week of Halloween, as I used to be in charge of events in the office. I did have a little bit of stress with a video that I had to compile for the cosplay competition, and because I was a bit overwhelmed with the Digital Marketing Capstone I’m currently taking on Coursera. I could have probably handled myself better emotionally, but wasn’t able to as the week just felt off to me.

The Aspergirl Diaries: Community Quarantine Week 13

This week was a pretty big week for me, and I have no idea how I survived it. The biggest thing that happened was that I can finally now talk about the project that I have been hinting at for some weeks now- I launched my own YouTube channel for my other blog, The Kat’s Cafe! Aside from this, it has been a week of learning and gaining new insights about myself as well. Continue reading “The Aspergirl Diaries: Community Quarantine Week 13”

The Aspergirl Diaries: Community Quarantine Week 12

Things have been busier than usual for me, as I have been working on both small and big creative projects aside from a new creative project I’m also working on for work. I also wasn’t so diligent about working out in Week 11, so I tried my best to hop back on that train again; and it reminded me that it really does feel good to exercise, especially right after you get up from bed in the morning.

The Aspergirl Diaries: Community Quarantine Week 11

Right now, the region I live in, and the cities where I work and live at, are now under a General Community Quarantine. This means that there are establishments and offices that are now slowly opening, for economic reasons. And, of course, we are still being advised to stay home rather than go outside. However, I still count these as weeks under a community quarantine as the quarantine itself hasn’t been lifted totally yet.¬†

The Aspergirl Diaries: Community Quarantine Week 6

I cannot believe that we have already reached the six week mark of the enhanced community quarantine in Manila, which means that this lockdown has gone on for two months already. 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.
