With the COVID-19 pandemic disrupting life everywhere, I think everyone could use a laugh, so I decided to forgo a serious article and attempt to do a photo week (sort of) in the life. So sit back, relax, and prepare to laugh at me struggling through my first week of self-isolation.
Sunday 3/15: It sounds like one of those weird questions that interviewers ask celebrities trying to promote their movie: “You have a lot of free time, classes are cancelled and/or moved online, and you’re on spring break, BUT you can’t leave your house. Would you take it?” Unfortunately, social distancing and self-isolating aren’t really optional right now, but I’ve managed to make it a little bit interesting – sort of. Besides procrastinating writing a paper, the only thing I’ve done today is scour the internet for pictures of Reveille IX, my favorite dog. I’m not even going to Texas A&M next year, but who doesn’t like fluffy dogs? I’ll do something interesting tomorrow! For sure…
Monday 3/16: Well. Today I procrastinated some more. The productive things I did manage to do included:
- Washing my hands
- Folding socks, attempting to toss them into my sock drawer, and missing.
- Doing calculus review.
- Checking the mail and finding out my future college sent me cool stuff.
Tuesday 3/17: It’s St. Procrastinator’s Day! Wait, that’s not wha-. Anyway, the local university I take classes at decided to move classes online for the rest of the semester, so I suppose now I have more time to do nothing. And that’s exactly what I did today. I mostly just saved Spongebob memes to my phone, listened to music (Stayin’ Alive is making an amazing comeback y’all), and I also may or may not have taken a very nice nap before it was lunchtime.
Wednesday 3/18: Today was a little bit more productive than yesterday. Besides more calculus review, highlights include:
- Finding a picture of Reveille reading an organic chemistry book.
- Wrestling with my duvet cover and comforter for an hour and a half before my mom came in and showed me how it worked in under five minutes.
- Pre-registering to vote!
No picture for that one, but I can confirm it happened.
That about wraps it up! I hope this article raised awareness about chronic procrastinators and those who are really missing the structure of school. I hope y’all stay safe and healthy and remember to wash your hands!
