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 21

This week went more smoothly than I thought it would, ad I think that it was mostly because I was able to get better quality sleep, and I was able to adjust well to another new schedule. Another thing was that I did make sure that I really had things that I was able to really look forward to at the end of the week, which, in a way, did keep me going.

The Aspergirl Diaries: Community Quarantine Week 20

Even though the rainy season began in June, I’m only feeling it now because the rains have gotten stronger, as monsoon rains are really here. It’s a very different experience experiencing the two main seasons we have here stuck at home, and it certainly does have its perks, like not needing to worry about how hot and humid it will be and my shoes not getting destroyed if you have to walk a little bit around the city where I work. However, there are some things that never change, such as my seasonal allergies.

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.

The Aspergirl Diaries: Community Quarantine Week 4

Everyone had a feeling that the quarantine over here was going to be extended, so it was no surprise when our national government announced that they would be extending the quarantine until April 30, 2020. To be honest, even though I am going a bit crazy, I think it would be better to extend until the curve flattens out more a bit. This year’s Holy Week and Easter celebrations were very different as compared to before as services were all online. However, all things considered, this has been the calmest week for me ever since the quarantine began.
