What I've learned being a non-essential employee for over a month

So, Covid-19. She's here and she's been here for a while. I'm afraid she won't be gone for a while, clingy bitch.

I've been doing some self-reflecting today and really wanted to get it written down to look back on in the future. So, here we go:

I rely on people to feel happy. I am the first person to tell you that I am such a homebody and I don't go out very much. BUT, I can't even express how much I miss seeing my clients and friends everyday. I just want to go out for dinner and drinks with my friends. I just want to have my hands in some hair. I just want to go to the store more than once every two weeks.

I thrive on a schedule. I've always known this about myself but I've never had to face that head on for this long before. I don't have a bedtime and I don't have any alarms set to wake me up anymore. It's SO weird.

I need to wear less makeup daily. So, one thing that has improved over this time is my skin! It is LOVING being naked for weeks at a time. I put on makeup for the first time since quarantine over a week ago and I HATED how my face felt with all of that makeup on. So buckle up when you see me in person after this whole thing. lol

I own a lot of yoga pants. And I ordered more. That's the tea on that.

Social media is toxic and I'm addicted. I have taken several breaks and it's still not enough. Social media makes me so angry especially with the stuff people are posting right now about the pandemic being so dramatic and not real. I just can't. Ending that right there.

I love audiobooks. I have been OBSESSED with audiobooks since the beginning of this year but it's been getting me through listening to these books. I specifically enjoy self-help and memoirs written by people I love to follow.

Self-employed people are getting so screwed right now. Maybe it's just my state and what I do but I haven't received a dime from the government to help me pay my bills. But don't worry, your girl is an OCD saver. Thank God. But it still sucks. I feel like I'm getting punished for living the 'American Dream'. That whole part of this has been incredibly eye opening and I'm afraid I won't ever see a dime.

Welp, there we have it. The things I've learned while being a non-essential employee for over a month. I hope you are doing well and staying safe!
