While I was writing this blog post about Corona, I started to get the “mushy” feeling I always get right before I get sick.
I thought I was a bit hypochondriacal at first with everything going on, but later that evening, I started to cough. That was 20 days ago. I was really sick with a fever for a couple of days, but after that, I’ve been feeling well but continued to cough. Do you know what I have done since then? Hanged out with friends? Traveled? Bought every piece of toilet paper in the grocery store? No. I have stayed at home in quarantine. I honestly don’t get why people seem to ignore the most basic rule of this pandemic – if you have any symptoms what so ever, STAY AT HOME.
Have I been infected with the Coronavirus? Maybe, but it honestly doesn’t matter. The world has far worse problems right now than giving me a diagnosis. What I’m mostly worried about is what kind of world we’re going to wake up in when this is over. We are heading headfirst into an economic crisis. People lose their jobs every day. Life ambitions die. We need to support our local businesses as much as we can right now. Otherwise, they might not be here when all of this is over.
20 Days of Quarantine
Worrying is never good, so let’s talk about this situation on a more personal, lighter, note. What is it like being quarantined for 20 days? I’m trying to stay positive even though I’m the type of person that enjoys having a lot going on. I get bored quite easily, but I’m trying to keep myself occupied. I have reorganized pretty much everything I own, cut my own hair and had about a billion photoshoots with my dog Stina. If there’s one positive thing about this situation it’s that I’ve started to upload photos on Stina’s Instagram again, haha. Check out @staffystina if you’d like to see more photos like the one in this post.
Everyone handles this situation differently. My main thought though is that I can handle being bored at home if that could potentially save someone’s life. This is not the time to be selfish.
