Hello From Quarantine

I am, just like many other people around the world, in my house and have pretty much been locked in my house for the past week or so.

I don’t know what day it is anymore but does it really matter?

I usually work from home anyways but I like leaving my house to work at a coffee shop for a change of scenery or step out to lunch.

That was my “break” away from work but now, I can’t really go anywhere.

I understand what is going on and why we need to practice social distancing but I am starting to go a bit crazy.

To combat that, I’ve been going on more walks around the blog and even started running again.

The weather’s been pretty nice lately after raining for about two weeks straight so that’s a plus.

With all of this time on my hands, I’ve been trying to catch up on stuff that Ive been putting off including my blog and podcast.

I’ve been so busy with everything else that I’ve neglected the things that I care about the most and that have helped me with my sanity.

I’m starting to record more so maybe I’ll go back to releasing episodes twice a week but we’ll see.

And I really don’t know how this is going to all play out because we’ve never really been in this position before. Couple that with a lot of stupidity and carelessness and you get the predicament that we are in now.

Even before the lockdown and safer at home that some states have, there were stupid people still going out to beaches, restaurants, ruining it for everyone else.

I don’t know if this is going to last another month or six months so we need to take it one day at a time and hope for the best.

In the meantime; be smart, wash your dirty ass hands, and stay home if you can.
