The Struggles of Living Alone During Quarantine

The coronavirus is taking its toll on the world. 

I don’t complain often because there are people dying of COVID alone across the world and their families are left to grieve without getting to say proper goodbyes. There are essential workers getting paid dust and people still struggling to pay bills due to losing jobs or side hustles. There are parents struggling to telework while keeping their kids educated and entertained at home (if this hasn’t proven that teachers deserve way more money and support, I honestly don’t know what will). There are way bigger issues to worry about, I know. 

At this point, it’s been almost 4 months since I’ve been in quarantine. My last day of working in the office was March 13 before my organization went on full telework. I don’t go out really other than to go to the store and the occasional visit to my immediate family. I was good with that at first. The first few months were completely fine. I’ve enjoyed working from home (and still do, honestly). Netflix and I had an amazing relationship already, and then add Disney+ to the mix? BLISS. I got to take more naps and virtual events were fun…for a while.

Inspirational Jam: “Smile”-Kirk Franklin (Virtual Music Video)

“It’s so hard to look up when you look down
Sure would hate to see it when you give up now
You look so much better when you smile, so smile!”

Today’s Inspirational Jam is one of my favorites!  Kirk Franklin‘s “Smile” is such an incredibly encouraging song to listen to, especially when I’m feeling kind of down.

In these crazy times, Kirk recently recorded a virtual video for the song with artists like Kelly Price, Fantasia, Jonathan McReynolds, and more. I’ve heard this song so many times but seeing this video put not only a smile on my face, but also brought a few tears to my eyes!

LOL: Vlogger LadBaby “Hacks” McDonald’s For His Son During Coronavirus Quarantine

This video was too adorable not to share!

Mark Hoyle, aka LadBaby, recently shared a video of a surprise he had for his family. He has promised his now 4-year-old that he was going to bring him a Happy Meal from McDonald’s for his birthday this past week. However, since COVID-19 hit, all McDonald’s (like most operations across the world) in the UK are closed. Sadly, he had to explain to the young boy that they couldn’t go right now. However, he came up with the greatest plan to “hack” McDonald’s for his son. Continue reading “LOL: Vlogger LadBaby “Hacks” McDonald’s For His Son During Coronavirus Quarantine”
