Morning Pages: May 11th, 2020

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the D.C. metro region has been in a state of lockdown. To alleviate fear and stress, my writer's group has put together a daily "morning pages" get-together on Zoom in order to touch base before starting the day. Here's some of my brief thoughts.

No cute picture today :)

I think one reason my weekends are so unproductive is I need some way in order to distinguish between weekends and weekdays. I'm working during the weekdays, and so the clearest distinction for the weekend is that I don't work. Probably exists subconsciously somewhere, because I feel really bad about myself and my behavior towards this. I should be doing chores, exercising properly, eating properly, and doing the other things. Instead, I'm just watching YouTube and Reddit.

We'll see how today goes. With any luck, I'll be able to make up for the weekend by working hard during the weekdays. Hard to make up for the cynicism, but life is all about pushing forward, or something.
