What day is it? I don’t even know. But man, LIFE IS STILL FREAKIN’ WEIRD.
You know, living in New York has its perks for sure. But now, more than ever, I’m realizing just how freakin’ lucky I am. Sure, New York is the epicenter of this outbreak, but I’m lucky to be in a state that has officials who are handling this situation impeccably. I’m no longer afraid when I watch the news, mainly because I think Governor Cuomo is crushing this. Any time he mentions New Yorkers being resilient, I start crying.
Now that we’re going on week 4 (holy crap) of being self quarantined, there are SO many things I’m missing. Things I’m thinking about doing again. Things I’m looking forward to. Things I’ll never take for granted again.
- Taking the subway with every other New Yorker
- My every day commute
- Working in an office
- Sitting with my team in our pod
- Going shopping at a store
- Not being afraid to cough or sneeze in public
- Going to the movies
- Sitting at a restaurant (honestly, RUNNING to BONDST when this is over)
- Dancing at a bar
- Hugging my parents
- Driving to my friends’ houses to hang out
- Small, local businesses
- Doctors, nurses, all healthcare workers
- Grocery store workers
- Delivery men and women
- Doing a class with my friends
When I take a look at this list again, a lot of it is super simple. It really always comes down to the simple things in life. I can’t wait to go back to this post once we’re out of this mess!
Your turn – what are you never taking for granted again?
