We’ve been doing this for a month now, apparently. I find myself overly stressed about the few obligations I still have, even though they’re all no big deal. I bet a lot of you feel the same. We’re all in crisis mode to some extent, and our bodies don’t know how to differentiate between stressors well enough to be chill about answering email while simultaneously stressed about avoiding a potentially fatal virus.
In happier news, I’ve been attempting many small projects of different kinds and have, finally, discovered the wonders of WD-40. I’ve been wrestling with whether I think it’s wise or ethical to order nonessential items online. I’m still not sure, but I ordered modules I can use as a dresser from Ikea a few weeks ago and am eagerly anticipating putting them together. My urge right now is to make things with my hands and organize my surroundings, and Ikea furniture will fulfill both those urges. Until then, I’ll keep cooking and shuffling assorted items and furniture around to make my room feel slightly neater and bigger.
Nonperishable food items in bins in the basement.
More top-down trash.
