Hello, my pretties! How are you all doing? I hope you’re all safe and healthy!
I have been safe, healthy and bored out of my mind, so I came here to update you all on what has been going on. I hope you all will update me as well, I want to know that you’re safe!
Days since I’ve left the apartment complex: 19 (last day was March 8).
Physical health status: Just fine.
Mental health status: Could be better, could be worse.
What I have been doing: Still working, though there isn’t a lot to do. Mostly meetings and emails to figure out what we’re going to do to stay afloat. Reading a lot of sites, blogs, etc, I had on my bookmarks. Writing for roleplays (collaborative writing), both blog (this one and the one in Portuguese), working on doing some fiction writing. Sleeping a lot when I’m not working. The very rare visit to parents (who live in the same complex) to check on them.
New developments: My older brother saw fit to send me a barrage of text messages last night berating me because my mother told him I was there for dinner. Because my presence there (not the fact that they refuse to stay at home) will give them coronavirus. And it doesn’t matter that they ask me to go, “I have to make a hard decision and not give in”. When I pointed out that I have nothing to give them as I have been isolated for over two weeks, he told me to “stop being defensive and listen to him”. Now he’s upset because I muted him (it was that or telling him where to shove his “advice”). He didn’t mean to upset me! He is just worried because he got sick (way across the country) and didn’t have the proper medical attention (no, he didn’t have COVID-19). He was just trying to have a conversation with me! Yeah, whatever. He’s not here, he doesn’t know what is happening but he thinks he knows it all. So yeah, nah. I’ll continue to stay home, and he’ll continue to be muted. I did tell my parents I won’t be visiting anymore and they’re super upset, but honestly? I don’t want to have anything blamed on me if they catch it on one of the outings they absolutely must go on.
Oof, that was a long and ranty one. But I really needed a moment to vent.
It’s your turn now, though! How are you doing, physically and mentally? Are you safe and taking care of yourselves? Anything you want to share, vent or rant about? Share it with me in the comments!
See you all on the next post, and stay safe!
