Friday FatBirdSquawk Time
Like a lot of you, I've been holed up in my house trying to keep myself entertained. Now normally, that's really easy for me. (I'm easily entertained.) I'm also not much of a social bunny, so again being home isn't something new. That said, I do miss seeing my friends on occasion and going out to eat. It's the little things that have captured my attention. I'm also aware that while self-quarantining seems like it's lasted forever, it really hasn't. I try to take a historical perspective when I find myself resenting house arrest. *gggg
With that in mind, I've been keeping myself busy with writing, drawing, and VR. Yes, I've been spending a lot more time in VR than I usually do. It's a pleasant way to mentally escape. I have also been replaying some of my favorite platformers like Ratchet and Clank. I wish I could say that I've been writing more than usual, but the truth is, I haven't. I have been writing daily. I'm just not getting big word counts. And that's okay. I think when these kinds of things happen to the world you have to cut yourself (and others) some slack. Everyone is doing the best that they can. Some are doing above and beyond (doctors, nurses, scientists, grocery stores, first responders, truckers, farmers, etc.). The least I can do for them is to stay home and be kind and patient when I have to go out.
Hang in there. It WILL get better.
