For those of you who don’t know, I’m a teacher full-time. I’ve been teaching online during this pandemic since March 18. I can’t believe it’s been almost 2 months! It’s really flown by, but at the same time it’s getting really tiring. I’m tired and I’m sure you’re tired too of the quarantine and the unknown.
Sunday night blues aren’t exactly the same as they used to be when I was going into work, but there’s still that “Ugh I have to wake up early tomorrow for work.” On the upside, being “at work” every day from 7:30-4:00 has made my days go by fast and has kept me from getting bored. But, nonetheless, it is still getting tiring especially since it’s the same thing every single day. I get up, shower and all that, sign in to Zoom and have classes and meetings throughout the day with lunch in the middle of all that, after signing out around 4 I go for a walk if it’s nice out, come back home, have a coffee while I decompress and watch tv or do some blogging or writing on my laptop, make dinner, do more of the same (tv and blogging/writing), go to bed. Repeat. I stay in my condo all day long and besides getting the mail and taking the garbage/recycling out, the only time I go out is for walks when it’s nice and on the weekends I go to the supermarket and to see my parents.
When I tell my students on Fridays during our Zoom classes to have a good weekend a good number of them say “It’s just the same thing as every day” and I get that. I try to make it sound better by saying “But at least you can sleep in a little!”
I was looking for a motivational quote to share today in the midst of all this and I came across this one –
“Be fearless in the pursuit of what sets your soul on fire.”
And I’m going to accompany it with some mirror selfies I took of my tee with a rainbow heart over the weekend, because why not.
Tee: Kohl’s | Leggings: Express
This tee is just so easy to lounge in and gives me all the positive vibes so I wanted to include it in this post.
One of the positives out of all this time at home is that I have really gotten to immerse myself in my writing. I have dreamed of being a writer for years and years, but that was all it was – a dream. I never did anything about it. Never actually wrote a full story. Sure, I had lots of ideas, but I never wrote a story. But back in February, I decided I was going to start a Wattpad and start writing and I’ve been doing it regularly. So that’s my goal – to become a full-time writer! Maybe one day it will happen for me.
That’s why I chose the quote, “Be fearless in the pursuit of what sets your soul on fire.” Writing sets my soul on fire and sure the chances I’ll actually make money off writing are slim, but I’m going to keep pursuing it. People might not believe in me, but it doesn’t matter. I have to pursue it and you should also pursue whatever it is that you dream of too!
I hope that you’ve made some time for yourself during this strange and scary time and maybe have found something you love to do whether it’s a hobby or a career change!
