These past two weeks have gone by so fast and have honestly been the hottest weeks recorded in my country as of late, a reminder that summer is here, but one without the usual trips to the beach, Tagaytay or Baguio due to the current situation. Aside from this, many people are confused and anxious about what the new normal will be looking like, especially in Metro Manila as we are now in a state of Modified Enhanced Community Quarantine (MECQ) now. Worries and anxieties aside, I’m pretty sure that I still really won’t be going out of my village yet, and I’m excited as well as there are many new and interesting new things and plans coming my way for the next two months.
Ever since the community quarantine started, time seemed to move pretty slowly. However, for some reason, this week went by so fast. I’m not sure if it was because of the workload (work and house chores) that I have, or because of the fact that it is quite possible that we will be shifting to a General Community Quarantine by the end of next week. In any case, it was quite a week.
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.
