taking stock: quarantine, week 2.

well, here we are with two weeks behind us. last week was the week everyone went wild over zoom, plus we had our parent orientations, so i’m a little burned out on virtual meetings. but in good news the sun came out and we had four days in a row of beautiful weather. it’s the little things.

as i told my father, it’s amazing how productive i can be on the weekend when i’m not exhausted from the week gone past. i’ve never known an 8.30-5 lifestyle, and it’s been quite eye-opening for me.

let’s see how week 3 goes…
