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.
Oh look, it's a hoodie!
A hoodie made out of your own skin. How convenient.
Today was uneventful. I did manage to chat with a friend until the early hours of the morning, which meant that I was less rested today than on a comparable Monday, but somehow I was still productive.
I remember talking about how I saw my life 1/3/5 years ago, and how things looked a good deal different back then than, and I wasn't sure whether I'm settling for less than my potential, or just becoming more enlightened. I think we agreed that this is probably just me freaking out over nothing, and that sitting back and relaxing was a good change from always being high-strung like I used to be.
I'm not sure if I mentioned this but I'm hoping to write 1/3/5 year letters to myself. I think that'll be good in order to get gut checks on where I wanted to be, really.
