Learning How to Navigate a Selfie Camera: On the first Monday of MECQ, I went out to do my grocery. I do grocery every two weeks.
If there is one thing being COVID 19 home quarantine never prepared me, it’s that it can be mentally challenging. I can cure the boredom, but the negative state of mind, which sprouts at any given day, is something I could not contain. I may have shared a few, if not a lot, of failures, but emotionally taunting me is more than nerve-wracking. Sometimes, I find myself lying in my bed, and suddenly thoughts would enter into my mind. I mean, who invited it, but yeah, here I am, entertaining it. Thoughts like I have never accomplished big-time this year, my ticking biological clock, regrets, reality check if I’ve made the right decisions in my life, and other what could have been. I never compared myself to other people’s achievements, but dang, this home-isolation made me succumb to it. I seldom converse with my roommate, and when I decided to open up my struggles to her, she told me that she had never experienced it, nor did she think anything about it AT ALL.
