Yo people, I’m losing my mind, no caps!
I don’t know how y’all are doing this, but damn, this is so hard. I don’t think my unemployed days were even as trying as this.
This is the Day 60 or so of working from home. No jokes, I really can’t remember what day it is. But I know it is the Day 5 of my country’s lockdown. And yo dearest #Galaxy, I’m losing my flipping mind! I sometimes have to consult my phone’s calendar several times within an hour to remember what day of the week it is.
I see all those WhatsApp statuses, tweets and posts saying you make the best use of this free time to learn a skill or two, take that online course, learn a language, write your book, and catch up on deadlines, yadda yadda but boy, I’ve been completely useless. Okay, almost… like 95% useless
I mean, it’s like my brain is on halt something. I miss blogging, heck I miss y’all, but I can’t do much about it because my creative juicy is frozen. A silly friend told me yesterday to stay away from the refrigerator. LMAO
But really, how are you surviving this #StayAtHome and #Lockdown? ‘Cause heck, I’m no longer finding it funny. I think this is harder for extroverts like me. I like having people around and staying indoors, especially when it is against my wish, is not my thing.
I miss hugging and holding hands.
I miss pressing my friends’ butts *covers face*
I miss pecking and kissing.
I miss squeezing the arm of whoever is seated next to me while laughing hard
I miss waking up with a destination
I miss all my food vendors, especially the lady that sells noodles and fried egg close to my office.
I miss not having to think about what to cook when I have all those fantastic food sellers to patronize.
Simply put, I MISS LIVING.
I don’t like this ‘new normal.’ It’s so frigging boring. I’m lost as to what to do with myself.
Guys, it’s so bad that I haven’t been able to bring myself to read a single book. Movies have become my sleeping pills *sulky pout* It takes me at least three days to complete a 90 minutes movie, like how is that even possible, considering I’m not doing anything else.
I’m so pissed. Like really irked by how Coronavirus has sent the entire world on a forced sabbatical. Skies! I worry about the people who can’t afford to stay at home but have no choice… oh Lord, have mercy. I try so hard not to think about how many people are dead else I scare myself shitless.
The Battle Of Hits
On the upside, have you been following the #BattleOfHits going on in Nigeria? OMG! It’s like the best thing that has happened so far.
However, it seems life will be a little more bearable with Money Heist returning today
I promise not to take the little things like hugging and holding hands and my food sellers for granted again after this pandemic. So help me God.
Hey! This seems odd and out of place but guys, today is World Party Day! Also, it is Find A Rainbow Day. I implore you to please find ways to keep yourself happy and hope alive as we fight #Covid19.
Get you some booze or lemon juice and party at home. Thank God It’s Friday #TGIF.
#StayAtHome #StaySafe and #StayHappy lovers…mwaaarh!
