I am actively trying to find ways to stay positive (and not completely freak out over what is happening in the world). I have decided to try a Friday’s Five to look back at my week and think about all the wonderful things that have happened throughout my week as well as things that have been keeping me sane.

I am officially just past the two week mark or self-isolation. I have had some pretty rough days; I’m not going to lie. There was one day where I was in the worst mood ever because it felt like nothing was going right and I felt very “caged-in” at home. On the whole though, I have been doing pretty good.

This past week I have really appreciated going for a nice long walk in the beautiful Spring weather. It honestly put me in such a good mood! The fresh air, migrating butterflies everywhere, and all the trees made for the perfect afternoon. It was so nice not being cooped up in my apartment for a little bit and spending some time with my favorite pup. I also have been trying to spruce up my patio because TBH I have let it go this past year and was looking real sad. I bought some herbs from Lowes and Home Depot to plant and hopefully enjoy over the next month of isolation.

On the home front, I have discovered a new fave (quick and easy) coffee recipe courtesy of TikTok! It is a whipped coffee and I am loving it. I also have been tinkering with my bedroom decor. I want to make it my perfect little relaxation haven to retreat to when I can’t (or don’t want) to be in the common spaces of the apartment. I have been loving taking all my books out of storage boxes and implementing them as decor in my room!

I recently made an investment and purchased some AirPods Pro. I didn’t have any headphones (thanks to my wire chewing cat) and it honestly was weighing on me. I have to do video lectures for school and every Sunday I have a virtual game night with friends all over the country. Not having headphones was a struggle because I was annoying everyone that I lived with. Now that I have some I honestly have improved my well-being! I absolutely love them and I love that there are different size earbuds and noise cancelation.

Thank you so much for taking some time to read and I hope you all are finding ways to stay safe during this stressful and scary time. Stay safe out there friends!
