... Is this thing still on???

Anyone out there??? Not... infected?

Welcome to the Apocalypse: COVID-19 Version 

     So it seems the whole world has fallen victim to the flu. But this flu seems to be quite contagious and menacing. I have just found out that I am an essential worker so unfortunately, I will be reporting to work on Monday. I must say, (and this will sound quite awful) I'm kinda glad to be going back to work because this apocalypse has me bored. That said, I will be staying far away from... everyone because frankly, you can't trust your fellow humans anymore. They may not know if they have been exposed or have become carriers. So like the great meme says: Like a good neighbor stay the fuck over there! 

     I've been taking photos of the chaos around me when possible. I wish I could take my nice camera out but for now, my phone will have to do. Also, It might creep some people out. 

     In the meantime, I've decided to use my free time wisely. I have a couple of projects I'd like to tackle. For example, I'd like to finish a vest I started making. I also wanted to learn how to make facemasks because I have a feeling we'll be needing those a lot more than we currently do. Lastly, I'd like to document all of the stuff that's been going on. Maybe in the future, I could show my nieces and nephews my COVID-19 years. That said, I have a couple of un-edited cellphone shots I'd like to share with you...


COVID-19: Welcome to our New Normal 

I went to the store yesterday. I managed to get quite a few things before the "Shelter in Place" order went into place. Apparently, A LOT of people LOVE cereal. I still have Cheerios from the last time I went to Costco. Boyfriend in the other hand has eaten 2 boxes in the last couple of days. #theaddictionisreal

This was my nearest Walmart las week. Most specifically the toilet paper aisle. Let's just say I will be wiping my ass with cardboard for the next couple of weeks. 

This is the other portion of the aisle. I was lucky enough to have found some TP on my previous grocery adventures. 

This is how the "junk food" aisle looks. They even took the vegan stuff. Except for my boyfriend and me, who else eats this stuff in Austin???

1st day of self-imposed quarantine... The laptop has fallen victim of my DIY's and stickers. The world should fear me and my hoarding for Lisa Frank sticker notebooks. 

The checkout line before the order was chaotic. The line extends almost all the way to the end. People were not pleased I was taking pictures. Sorry!!!

Another shot of the cereal aisle. 

Day 3 of quarantine: I pulled out my coloring book and some glitter pens. I am armed and dangerous 


     So I leave you with this:

May you be blessed with plenty of Lysol and mountains of toilet paper. Take care of each other. I love you all.
