This is about self quaratine

Things I DO while social/physical distancing:
-Play Animal Crossing (x 100000000)
-Wake up between 7 or 8 am even though time has lost all meaning
-Only watch 15 minutes of the news, and read no more than a few articles because YEUCH
-Put on makeup at least 3 days of the week, just to feel any sense of normalcy
-Drink too much Diet Pepsi
-Drive my mom to work twice a week and pick her up, which is the only time I leave the house
-Obsessively wash my hands even though I just said I only leave my house twice a week, and 98% of that is in a car
-Recognize the fucking privileged life I have and am grateful every waking moment I have my health, a place to live, and food in my mouth (usually Diet Pepsi)

Things I DON’T do while social/physical distancing:
-Write/think/engage my brain
-Work out except for the one day I did my squats but then couldn’t walk for the next 2 days because my body isn’t used to being vertical any more
-Eat. I have lost my appetite for most things that aren’t Diet Pepsi
-Facetime/Google hang/Zoom with friends because I don’t have good wifi in my room and also I don’t have a cool enough room to want to show off
-Twitter. This is the best thing to come out of a terrible situation: no longer feeling the need to go on Twitter. Facebook is next.
-Check messages and e-mails and respond to them in a timely manner. I’m very sorry. I literally have no excuse.

Things I SHOULD do while social/physical distancing:
-Reach out to more people
-Watch new shows
-Read the dozens of books I have lying around the house that I haven’t yet
-My taxes???? LOLOLOLOL NO
-Clean out my room so I have a cool enough space to show off in a Zoom hangout
-Learn how to cook
-Process what’s going on around me and express how it makes me feel instead of repressing everything like normal
