I never thought I would see the day I would exercise twice a week amidst a pandemic outbreak. Even though I enjoy long walks I hate exercising. However, some mild neurological issues and the fact that I enjoy eating A LOT made me realize that I have to take exercising seriously.
Most women feel in balance with their body and full of energy when they exercise. I on the other hand feel like a clumsy two-year-old who has little control over her body. Leggings suck and my pony tail makes me look like a young colonial man who is a woodworking apprentice.
I literally want to leave my body at the gym and pick it up when it is ready. And eat without getting fat.
My personal trainer is ruthless and pretends we are doing things in my pace but everything is going according to her vicious plan-to make me fit.
For years I work two supposedly part time jobs so I work full time 10 months a year. I hadn’t been addressing my health issues properly until I had no choice. Now, I try to earn less and at the same time spend more on my health. Believe it or not it is more profitable.

I had time to make beeswax candles, bake, and watch back to back episodes of series I had never seen before and buy lots of useless things online. However, I can’t help but wonder…How will this situation affect single people’s life? I have been single for over a year now. Meeting someone is not in my immediate plans, especially with this situation.
I am fully aware of the fact that the biggest problem right now is not the love life of single people but still… This situation is hard on all of us. We leave the house making sure we haven’t forgotten our masks and not our phones. Everything has adjusted around this virus, even TV series. Masks everywhere. They are even turning into a fashion accessory.
I was beginning to lose hope but today I read that a star, that is believed to be the Bethlehem star, is going to appear in the sky for the first time in 800 years. I truly think this is a sign that better days will come. Or at least I truly hope it is a sign…
