Self quarantine day 10:
4:00, wallow in self-pity;
4:30, stare into the abyss;
5:00, solve world hunger, tell no one;
6:30, dinner with me—I can't cancel that again;
7:00, wrestle with my self-loathing... Oh wait no, I stole this from The Grinch.
7:30, wake up, make coffee;
7:45, drink coffee, journal, enjoy the sun outside my windows;
8:30, stare at cats while they wrestle. Shower;
9:00, open work laptop;
9:30, call company IT after spending the last half hour trying to reset my password. Was informed that I won’t be able to reset the password until I’m on company WiFi. I am not allowed in the office until after February 21st;
10:00-12:00, work through wechat and email;
12:00-13:00, scroll through ele.me (food delivery app) trying to decide what to eat for lunch;
13:30, put on mask and coat, pick up lunch and groceries at the gate, wash my hands, sanitize surfaces, eat;
14:00-15:30, nap with cats;
16:00 onwards, Grinch itinerary...
Yeah it’s been a long day. And it’s only 7:30pm.
