It can get pretty lonely for the most of us solo people during this pandemic. I think it’s been quite depressing for the most of us that can’t sit quietly for long periods of time. I have to admit that I miss going out and spending time with friends over meals or drinks. Just going out catching up and all. The extrovert in me is suffering. The WFH (Working From Home) part isn’t an issue for me as I’m used to SOHO environment since early 2017.
It’s driving me crazy now because the gym and pool is closed. Well, to be exact it’s been close since early May 2021. I miss working out at the gym. It gave me solitude from the craziness. What have you been doing to keep you sane when you’re stuck at home?
Do you think being solo during this time makes you stronger or makes you feel extra lonely as it makes you wish that you were in lockdown with someone? For me, I’m getting used to being alone as I’ve been living alone since early 2019. I still can’t imagine how I’ve survived this long living alone. LOL. Adulting solo. 😛 I think I may have said this before, my plan was always to be living with a partner. But, living alone thus far has been pretty awesome too. I have 2 furkids to keep me company so maybe I’m not completely alone.
Many make New Year’s Resolutions. I never really bothered in making any because I hate setting expectations and when they’re not being met, it only makes you feel disappointed. I learn to stop having expectations for years now as I used to have them but we all know how that ends. So, I’ve learned to live with just taking each day as they come. That all being said, it doesn’t mean that I don’t strive to be better because I always challenge myself and those that I care for to always be better. I feel that life’s too short to not be the best you can be because it may be your only life unless you believe in reincarnation. 😀
I think most of my closest friends know that things have been tough emotionally for me this few months. That being said, life and time waits for no one. I’m turning another year older in just a few months time. This year is definitely going to be different. I’m waiting on a tribute tattoo session for my Mom that got postponed because of the MCO (Movement Control Order) 2.0. It’s now scheduled for 8th of March 2021. We’ll see if that session will happen especially when the Malaysian Government has been wishy-washy in terms of their decisions in controlling and keeping the Covid-19 numbers down. That being said, I’m keeping my fingers and toes crossed that I’ll be able to get it done soon and as planned.
I’m definitely going back into the gym to workout. I want to destress, sweat, feel fit and get toned. But, I’ll definitely have to take a break from the gym when I get inked for a smooth healing. Plus, I want to be ready for Maldives. *hint.. *hint.. I know which resort I’m interested in this round.
Besides the gym, I’m also going to tryout some new recipes. I’m excited about that even though I still prefer cooking for others. LOL… I’ll think of more things to do as the months passes and I’ll keep y’áll updated. If you have ideas of something that I may like, do comment below and I might try them out.
