Tuesday, March 24th 2020:
Another very decent day today. I was really busy with work and that kept me going for most of my day. Had a few phone calls and that was about it really. Work is really starting to normalize in my routine. I feel like this is the part of the week that sometimes drags out, but being in this lockdown, not so much. I did get out and go for a light jog. I didn’t push it. It was nice to get outside and run, not a lot of people around which is good. Looks like people are staying inside. I ordered some takeout for dinner to support the local restaurants. Plus I was just lazy tonight, I didn’t want to make anything. Other than that I just studied some more and talked on the phone with a few friends. I am truly blessed to be working. It seems a lot of my friends are now feeling the pinch of this virus outbreak. None of them are sick, but their jobs are in the service industry and they have been told to stay home, no work, no money coming in. And that is scary. I thought about that for myself and yea, I am really blessed to be allowed to keep working.
Last night I had a bunch of weird dreams again. None of them make any sense but still, I wonder with all this isolation is now causing my brain to dream of different times. I am trying to be careful to not let these dreams confuse me, so I just take it like it is just part of the process of what I am going through. Tomorrow I have a bunch of meetings/conference calls in the morning, and then one in the afternoon. I don’t expect to get much done tomorrow but I will try. I can’t believe it has almost been 14 days. On Thursday, after work I plan on walking to the grocery store and getting a few things. I might even get some kind of sweets to celebrate my 14 day quarantine. Hopefully next Friday the numbers of sick will start to top off and maybe we can all see some light at the end of this dark tunnel.
I caught myself internet window shopping today. Looking at some big ticket items that I would want to buy but I don’t really need. That was fun. I might do that a little tomorrow night if I am in the mood for it. I haven’t combed my hair in over a week. And last week I was supposed to get a haircut so my hair is outta control right now. Shave it off again? Hmm maybe. It is an option. Oh yeah, Del Taco sent me an email about how they are still open and for me to order food. I miss them so badly so I actually went on their site and tried to find a nearest Del Taco to order from and the closest one is like 7 miles away and they don’t deliver because I am to far. Not a single Del Taco in the downtown LA area. I didn’t know that. I did see a FiveGuys and I do miss having a good hamburger. Might treat that for myself this Friday night. Great all this talk about food is making me hungry. Talk to you tomorrow? Cool.
2 days to go.
