Sup' you guys! It's Friday and we are surviving. My guard friends and I have created a virtual workout group, so every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, a group of us will be on a Zoom call together working out. I'm excited, I worked out exactly once, by myself. So hopefully I'll have better luck doing it with friends. I didn't realize how much of a stress reliever exercise was until I stopped. I get stressed about school easily. But going to practice after school and working really hard at something that wasn't academic, that is what cleared my head and allowed me to stop thinking for once. and it tired me out enough for me to get quality sleep. Without it, apparently, I am a mess. Plus, It'll be a sort of routine? Which will also be good for me.
Speaking of exercise, my family in India are doing the same thing...
Seeing that in our extended family group chat was a reminder to me that this is international. I know that seems like a stupid realization, I mean, it is a pandemic after all. But because of the quarantine, a lot of us feel alone, but we're obviously all going through the same thing, just in safely separated and sanitized spaces. The pandemic sucks, it does, but I think it's pretty darn cool that the human race is walking through it together. The fact that half way across the world, there are people doing the same thing as me makes life feel just a little less lonely. I hope you all feel the same :)). Hang in there.
