Well, what do you know! The entire world is either in quarantine or self-quarantine as they should be right now. It’s as if everybody is finally getting that break they should have taken a long, long time back. To be honest, social distancing isn’t really affecting me since I didn’t go out too much either way. So, I chose to start doing something productive instead. And that’s why after a long time, I got my sketchbook out again and made something inspired by my current favourite drama and I was surprised at how good it turned out to be. Emotionally, I mean.
I’m also planning to catch up on my ever-growing TBR (to-be-read) and TBW (to-be-watched) list, now that I know I have no other plans. So maybe you can expect a bunch of book reviews or movie/ series reviews here soon. I feel lighter, now that I’m expressing myself through my art more and more. It’s such a simple thing, but I cannot help but be amazed at the number of times I’ve expressed my feelings by writing something or sketching something. It’s as if angry waves are crashing, but they’re somehow still under control. I don’t know how else to explain this.
I’m glad I have the freedom to take a break whenever I want to. But this is the time when everyone is being given a break, whether they feel like they need one or not, and I think that it’s a great opportunity for all of us to do some catching up. Take a beat. Get some cleaning done. Organize. Exfoliate. Get some really good self-love and care time in.
Catch up on everything you’ve been missing out on. Spend some quality time with your family if you live with them. Get those board games out and stay safe, everybody. Now that we’re supposed to be staying in like Rapunzel, there’s nothing but time. All we can do is make sure that we stay safe and make use of all the time we’re being given at the moment.
