We are entering our 3rd month of lockdown this month. With any luck, lockdown will end at the end of this month but let’s not get our hopes up. Even if it does get extended, we are closer to the end of the tunnel.
This lockdown has been long. Schools were closed this whole time so those with kids and were lucky enough to be able to work from home also had to contend with home schooling for these months. It’s been hard, businesses who were non essential have been closed this whole time and I have seen many stores closed locally (forever). Rules and regulations change weekly, it’s hard to keep up.
I’ve stopped reading the news altogether the past few weeks and instead have focused on what I can control. My time, what I consume, exercise and eating and sleeping well.
Conversations with friends and family have led me to know that this lockdown has been hard on everyone for one reason or another.
I am looking forward to seeing family and friends again and giving them all hugs.
I am looking forward to reading on the beach.
I am looking forward to getting a haircut from someone other than myself.
I am looking forward to going to an art gallery.
I am looking forward to getting a matcha ice-cream from my favourite matcha cafe.
I am looking forward to browsing a bookstore.
I am looking forward to having a drink somewhere with a nice view of the world.
I am looking forward to having a nice comforting bowl of pho at a restaurant.
1 month to go.
