Corona Life

During this pandemic, I’ve developed a routine that I’ve grown to love. Staying in Florida with my grandparents has provided me with the opportunity to live a phenomenal lifestyle. Here is a typical day for me: 

8:30-9:00: 

Wake up.

9:00-9:30: 

Use the restroom, drink some water, take my medication, brush my teeth and then get my phone to check my notifications. Then shower and get dressed. 

9:30-10:00:

Put my phone on my charger and take my laptop in the kitchen.Then, make some tea and pour myself a glass of water. Write in my gratitude journal, check my email, watch videos on YouTube or a Danny McBride TV show on HBO while I drink. 

10:00-10:15: 

Put on a David Goggins interview, do 50 squats, a 5 minute stretch routine and a 5 minute forearm workout. 

10:15-12:00: 

Go outside to the outdoor area while still watching the David Goggins interview, do 50 pushups and do 75 curls, then watch a Danny McBride TV show. 

12:00-12:45: 

Eat a delicious brunch with my grandparents. 

12:45-1:30:

Read. 

1:30-2:30: 

Swim laps in my grandparents’ pool and do some dips.

2:30-3:00:

Drink some water, use the steam feature in the shower and then take a regular shower. 

3:00-4:00:

Eat a snack, do an abdominal workout and do yoga for neck and shoulder pain. 

4:00-5:00:

Go on a bike ride with my grandma. 

5:00-6:30:

Wash my face, change my clothes, watch the Coronavirus Taskforce Briefing and get ready for dinner. 

6:30-7:30:

Eat a delicious dinner. 

7:30-8:30:

Talk to my brother on the phone. 

8:30-10:30:

Watch a movie or TV show with my grandparents. 

10:30-12:00:

Go to bed, watch a Danny McBride show and then listen to a podcast until I am tired enough to fall asleep. 

In addition to my daily routine, my grandma has been teaching me to drive on some days, which is something I am so happy about. Since I lived in New York City, I didn’t need to get my license, and since being in college, I have not had the time. Finally learning how to drive has eased my anxiety about it and given me confidence to get my license as soon as possible. 

I also have interviewed for positions and been doing well in my classes with minimal effort. The interviews were for doing service to fight the opioid epidemic. Classes are a joke, so I dropped the two that I did not need to take and am doing little to no work in the 12 credits I am taking. In a way, I will definitely be sad when this is all over. However, life goes on, and I am looking forward to seeing some people I have not seen for a very long time.
