Hope you’re all doing well and staying occupied during this turbulent time! I’m doing pretty okay myself, but of course, I am feeling the stress and anxiety. Today, I applied to twenty-nine jobs online, even though I know nobody’s really looking to hire right now. I also finished two school assignments and a book reflection yesterday, so I definitely feel like I’ve been pretty productive.
Like I said, I’m keeping my social circle small and it’s limited to only three people. Eli, one of those three, is planning on coming over tonight to watch America’s Next Top Model with me and hang out for a bit, so I’m looking forward to that. Until then, I’m going to try to knock out an article for Analog and a couple of things for the blog. It’s a great time to be an introverted homebody!
I’m supposed to go see Buck soon in western Massachusetts, but obviously I don’t know how intensely the travel bans are going to increase in the coming days. Until then, it’s all about staying home and finding ways to keep myself busy. Updates to come.

Hi everyone, hope you’re all having a great day. It’s about 3:30 in the afternoon right now, and I’ve already had a pretty productive day (from home.) My two future housemates and I made a google doc with all of the apartments we’re interested in, so now we’re slowly going through that list and trying to find a place to live. Now, I’m sitting in bed and applying to more jobs, and then I think I’m going to try to get some homework done.
I haven’t had any luck finding a job yet, but I’ve been in contact with several awesome organizations. I’m trying to keep my head up and remind myself that the right opportunity will come at the right time.
Besides doing adult things, I’m keeping myself busy with baking, reading, and watching lots of Netflix. Right now, my books of choice are Slaughterhouse Five, Memoirs of a Geisha (again), Anne of Avonlea (again), The Tale of Genji, and Disappearing Earth. I’m planning on releasing a “What Am I Reading Right Now?” article in the future, so keep your eyes out for that!

I’m starting my online classes on Monday, and I honestly have no idea what to expect. It’s certainly going to be a really strange transition to finish the end of my senior year, I can tell you that much!
I was in a bit of a funk this past week, but now I’m finally starting to feel better. It was just a combination of feeling unmotivated, uncreative, and generally unhappy with myself and the way I look. My skin has been breaking out more than usual, probably due to stress, and I’ve been eating more than usual since I can’t leave the house and I don’t have a whole lot to do. However, like I said, the good news is that I’m starting to feel much better and productive! I think forming a routine and sticking to it in the upcoming week will help to boost my energy and motivation as well. To make myself feel better, I’ve also been doing my makeup every day, even though I don’t have anywhere to go. I always feel so much happier after I put on a full face of makeup; what about you guys?
Anyway, I’m going to drink a cup of black coffee (even though it’s 5pm, hahaha), and try to get some homework done. Thanks for reading and keeping up with my daily life! I hope you’re all staying safe and healthy, despite the unfortunate circumstances.
