Birthday In Quarantine

Mar 30, 2020

2020 has been quite an interesting year. We are only 89 days in and so far, there have been massive wildfires in Australia, Kobe Bryant's untimely death and threats of WWIII. Now there is a pandemic. COVID 19 or the coronavirus has been spreading, particularly in New York City due to its high population and congestion of people.

New York City is a ghost town. We have been advised to self-isolate and practice social distancing. Yes, spending my birthday in my living room is not ideal but I made it work. It also reinforced how lucky I am. I have shelter, food and basic necessities. I have a wonderful network of friends and my incredible family who made a great effort to make sure I enjoy my day. Also, just because I'm in my living room does not mean I cannot serve a look ;).

It has been a difficult couple of weeks. In a matter of days: I got laid off, learned that I will not be able to attend graduation or enjoy my workouts with my peers. I can only go out for basic necessities and enjoy solitary activities. In my opinion, we can be two types of people: those who complain about it or those who find alternatives. I choose to be part of the latter. I have been working out at home and enjoying solitary runs. With this pandemic, I have also been able to spend more time with Jeremy. Also, I have learned to slow down a bit. New Yorkers are always in a hurry and for now, having more time to do things is not so bad.

For those who are interested, I have work-out videos in my Instagram stories (@havtastic). They are home workouts with little equipment or using items you may have at home. Hoping everybody is staying safe and practicing safe measures. We got this!
