Day 10 of Self Quarantine
Self quarantine day 10:
4:00, wallow in self-pity; 4:30, stare into the abyss; 5:00, solve world hunger, tell no one; 5:30, jazzercize; 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.
