March Highlights – Moving Forward

These past two months have been a whirlwind of a ride, from the Philippines to New York City to coming back home to beautiful Coeur d’Alene, Idaho and finding that life as I had known it had been totally changed.

Trying to get some of my geography homework out of the way in our Airbnb.

Upon returning home from NYC, my classmates and I were quarantined in an Airbnb not far from our college campus. There we spent two weeks working endlessly on our school magazine. I’m not kidding it was literally wake up, eat, work on the magazine, eat, work on the magazine, eat, go to bed. (I love getting tasks complete so I’m a bit of a workaholic and was cracking down on all the staff.)

Our Airbnb newsroom.

You can imagine that such a repetitive daily routine gets a bit overwhelming. I have to admit this extrovert was going a little crazy, especially during the last two days. Overall, I thought it was quite interesting to see the effect that isolation would have upon me. To sum it up, I think I went brain dead in terms of socialization and wound up mentally exhausted from the overload of schoolwork.

I think I put on jeans twice during quarantine…maybe twice

As our quarantine lifted, my classmate and I got security to unlock the newsroom on campus so we could each grab a Mac to take back to our homes for continued work on the school magazine. We probably looked like regular thieves loading all that equipment up into my little black Ford Focus.

It was a sad day driving back to my CDA home and packing everything up there and loading that on top of my stuff from the Airbnb. I moved from two houses in one day back to my own little apartment up north to be closer to family.

My new home office.

After a day of recovery (plus some spring cleaning), I am back to work in my “new” home. My plan for the upcoming week is to get as much homework that’s possible out of the way so I have the rest of my semester cleared to work on finishing up my next book! (Did I mention I was a workaholic?!) What better time than now to finally get it done!

I also got a lot of planning for the next semester completed. I have one class for my photography degree that isn’t offered again until next spring, so I decided to just go to school for one more full year and study music theory. I also put in an application to run for student government. My friend Melissa helped me film a campaign video since everything has to be online and let’s just say it’s….well, not ideal.

Looking forward, I really hope that the skies clear up ahead! But until then, I hope I’ll be able to make the best of it and give some much-needed attention to tasks at hand. I pray you all are keeping sane through these wild times. At least the memes are good.
