Wake up at 11:30, start my online job at 12 noon, take 2-hour break in between. 2pm – this is when I start preparing for Brunch. I know right, brunch during snack time, does not make sense but, well! By 3pm, brunch is done. I have a few minutes to spare before I go back to my work desk. At 4 pm, I start working again for 2 hours.
At 6 pm, I make it a point to come as quickly as I could to my apartment’s rooftop to catch the sunset. I have never imagined I would look forward to catching sunset every day. There were occasions that I missed the sunset but hey, I saw a beautiful moon one time! And Yes, I also saw a super pink moon. What a Treat!
While enjoying the sunset, I do my stretching routine, a few leg exercises and I finish it off by going back and forth the stairs. I’m generally lazy but this quarantine is making me exercise because, what else would I do? And it feels great, actually! Well, it sored at first, okay?
By 6:30, I take a shower and get ready for my work again at 7pm. 2 hours of sitting is boring and killing me so I again take a break. 9pm – this is when I have coffee and I would rummage my fridge for anything that I could pair my coffee with. My breaks are also used to talk to my boyfriend, my parents , my siblings , etc .( Thank you, messenger and zoom).
By 10 pm, I am ready to sit for another 2 hours again and work my way off until 12 midnight.
By putting long breaks in between, I would not even notice that I could complete 8 hours of work every day. (thanks to my online company for flexi time). By 12 midnight, I would prepare late dinner. By 1 am, my sister would be done working too. (Yes, she is in the room working all along). So yes, we eat dinner at 1 am, by 2: 30, I would be on bed reading a book. (I make it a point to NOT USE MY PHONE for at least 1 hour. I read at this time). If I’m not reading, I’m binge-watching any Netflix shows or my favorite youtuber’s Vlog. I go to bed at 4 or 5 am and yeah, the saga continues. Another day, another stay-at-home routine. What’s important is we are Virus -free and we are helping in flattening the curve.
