Finally, an update

Wow, it’s been a long time since I’ve posted anything substantial. Life has continued to be fairly quiet. Mostly due to restrictions and lack of social events to attend. Things are starting to open up a bit now, so I’ve been able to return to the gym and dance studio. The extra physical activity has really boosted my mood. And I feel like I have more motivation to do things now which has been nice.

The weather has been beautiful and sunny lately, so I’ve been going for lots of walks and soaking up the vitamin D. I also played soccer with my brother the other day which was a lot of fun. We’re hoping to do a few more things like that throughout the summer.

Unfortunately, the restrictions have also kept my outgoing, gregarious, extroverted roommate at home too. She has no social outlets (other than the people at work) and so she spends most of her time with me. And I’ve been slowly burning out. I feel like I need a long break from human interaction. I work in an open office (with social distancing) so there’s always constant chatter and phone calls. After work, I have an hour of quiet until my roommate gets back. Not only does she constantly talk, but she’s also touchy-feely and gets in my personal space. I’ve been spending a lot of time in my room with my noise cancelling headphones and that’s helped.

On the plus side, my roommate is currently taking a 3-day night class. On Monday and Tuesday, she was gone the entire evening. It was glorious. Her last day is today and I’m looking forward to the solitude. This has been the first time I’ve been totally alone (for more than an hour) for months. I finally feel a little more normal.

Anyways, I hope you are doing well. Sending lots of good vibes your way!
