Long time no blog post!
I am lowkey scared that I have lost the ability to weave words out here, but we’ll only know for sure if I try.
I just got home. I am bursting with all the feel good. Quickly gets my Spotify going and I’m jamming to all my liked songs. A list of 100 + that I take pride in. If you care about my mental health, please keep off my music selection. It is out of the criticism bracket.
For a second, I find myself bursting a move.
Lately it is these little moments that fill me with so much joy.
Having been in a panini for what feels like forever, life has taken quite the turn. The mundane is suddenly riveting.
For starters, I am stuck in my little crib, day in day out with WFH.
I am not complaining. The perks are immense.
I get to wake up five minutes to logon time and just strut to my work desk.
Work uniform is pajamas and the win, no bra!
No more commute and every so often hot lunch served straight from my kitchen.
The cons of forever being home is that it intensifies the loner life. Being alone gets overly comfortable. The indoor life becomes a solace to all the chaos happening outside. To get me to sign up for an outside plan, you’d think we are going to the moon from all the mental preparation that I must go through.
Making friends becomes a thing of the past. Whatever was my circle has not changed an inch. If anything, it keeps shrinking by the day. Day by day I get out of touch with people I genuinely liked and enjoyed. I hope when I see them next, we can pick up where we left off minus the awkward.
Your colleagues finally become just that. You no longer know what they had for dinner last night or the latest domestic manager drama.
To navigate this confined existence, a few discoveries will come at you.
Vinegar, shockingly, is a must have. From keeping a fridge fresh to removing any bathroom filth that might have been problematic coupled with a toothbrush. Don’t ask me where I have been if I did not know this.
Butter smells nasty when frying but the end-product is delectable. Specifically, pan-fried potatoes. Now only to invent a way to bypass the cooking smell.
The usual Ed Sheeran and Rihannas no longer tickle your fancy.
Electronic dance is super underrated. Cheat Codes, Unknown Brain, Trivecta are actual artists who will have you jamming loudly in the afternoon to the amusement of listening neighbors.
Imbolo Mbue : Behold the dreams is overrated.
Home workouts are a whole commitment. Your favorite influencer will probably leave this bit out. You will fall out of the wagon and keep hoping to get the mojo back. They also have actual results like a shapelier derriere.
Watching a neighbor in the next apartment is fun and you slowly see yourself morph into a stalker. In my defense he has this mop of locs that I find eye catching. Among other things. *wink*
The target here was just to achieve 500 words, forgive the rumbling.
To trying harder to getting this thing going!
