Well, we’re on week four of this social distancing, isolationist, quarantine hell and it has it’s ups and downs. TikTok has never been more hilarious as this new worldwide pandemic fuels the creative minds that would otherwise lay dormant. I haven’t touched another human being (hug, handshake, kiss) in almost a month and I’m taking it out on my cats by holding them every chance I get.
They are not thrilled with the new arrangement.
All in all though, with the number of cases exploding upward, the economy plummeting downward, and the mental health of the general populous spiraling, it’s not good.
I’m trying to focus on the good things, putting my life in perspective. I don’t have COVID-19 (aggressively knock on wood), I still have my job, and no one I know has died. I need to remember that I’m incredibly fortunate to be relatively okay in a world where basically nothing is ok.
Is my mental health suffering? Oh yeah. But I bought an exercise ball office chair so I’m hoping that will help.
In other news, I found out that the only way I will be able to track sales is by e-mailing the publisher directly. Apparently they do not participate with the Amazon program that allows me to see said sales numbers from the Amazon Author website.
I’m going to have a peanut butter cup and clock in to work.
Keeping busy may be the only thing that keeps me sane.
Bye for now!
