To be completely honest, I wasn’t sure if I was going to write this post today, but in the end, I just decided to talk about the past week just in case you might also learn from it, and so I can also clear my head a bit. Continue reading “The Aspergirl Diaries: Community Quarantine Week 16”
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.
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”
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.
At this point in time, most of the city is gearing back to shift into the modified enhanced community quarantine, but things don’t feel that clear yet. Funnily enough, the weather seems to be mirroring this confusion as there are moments when it is still very hot, followed by downpours of rain. However, I’m glad that the rain does bring some cool weather when it does. Aside from that, my week was pretty hectic, and will be so until next Tuesday mostly due to work, so I can’t wait until I can relax a little bit more in the latter half of the week.
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 can’t believe that it’s already May, which means that we are one month away from reaching the halfway mark of 2020, and I have no idea what to think if this year yet. At this point in time, I can say that I have gotten comfortable enough with my daily routines that I can be flexible with it at times. However, I think that with a new month and the upcoming lifting of the Enhanced Community Quarantine on May 15 and shifting to a General Community Quarantine, there is also a certain feeling of uncertainty in the air.
