Weekly Wrap || April 4th

April 4th, 2020

It’s surreal to already be in April, especially after March took 84 years to complete. But here we are with the first Weekly Wrap this month, and it’s surprisingly busy?

Life Beyond the Blog

Look, I hate how focused people are on productivity right now. It’s literally the worst time to feel productive in any shape or form, and it’s okay not to be productive. Seriously. Rest right now is incredibly important.

That said, I shocked myself this week by, well, being productive. I hadn’t really planned for it, but it all spilled out at once. For one, I managed to put together an entire April Fool’s joke that was, at its core, silly and harmless. It came with Photoshopped book covers, terrible puns, and a sense of joy I honestly didn’t anticipate finding as of late. Really, it was a breath of fresh air, and it was fun to work on. That’s a big deal right now.

I also got through two books, wrote some reviews, and planned out my blog schedule for the entirety of April. Today is probably a drafting day, so I don’t find myself overwhelmed down the line by how little time I’ve left myself, but it’s nice to have a schedule. It makes me feel pretty grounded, and it gives me something to work on. Better than being left adrift, wondering what day it is.

But those things aren’t beyond the blog. What is beyond the blog, though, is the fact that I can now fold a fitted sheet. You heard me. I’ve never felt so damn powerful in my life, but here we are. My sheets are folded in perfect little rectangles, and I have ascended to godhood. Fear me.

Folding sheets, though, descended very quickly into deep cleaning my entire room, so, uh, wish me luck. I sense a shelf rearrangement in my very near future…

The Week Ahead

Really, it’s a mystery. I know I’ll need to do some blog upkeep, which is routine and actually helps right now, but I don’t know beyond that. Will I just sink into Animal Crossing for another 50-odd hours? Will I suddenly read through a book a day for a week straight? Honestly, anything could happen.

I do think, though, that I’m going to try to do a little writing. It’s Camp NaNoWriMo, and while I had no formal plans to participate, maybe I should. I haven’t flexed my writing muscles for a solid month and change because of stress, and getting back into it will be rocky. Might as well use this time to ease back into the habit before I’m under pressure to do it.

Other than that, we’ll just have to see. Maybe there will be quarantine bakes (I’m hoping for M&M cookies, if we have the ingredients). Maybe there’s just going to be a lot of naps. I don’t know, and I’ll just have to fill you in during next Saturday’s Weekly Wrap.

 

See you all around. Stay safe, and do what you need to do. 💛

    1. Oh, absolutely, and I am DELIGHTED with my newfound magical powers.

      Turns out I never needed to fly or start fires with my mind. I just needed basic housekeeping witchcraft.

  1. Look, I hate how focused people are on productivity right now. It’s literally the worst time to feel productive in any shape or form, and it’s okay not to be productive. Seriously.

    FREAKING THIS!!!! All the hustle hard tweets sent me into a spiral last month and led me to largely avoiding Twitter for the last two weeks. It’s okay to not be productive right now, but I am happy you have been – especially since you have a good outlook about it!

    I am incredibly impressed that you can fold a fitted sheet. I am 36 years old and have yet to master this!

    1. They were driving me bonkers too! 😖 It’s a horrible time to be productive on schedule and it’s super okay not to be. I’m trying to not beat myself up too much over it (shout out to my voice of reason therapist btw).

      Haha, it took some aggressive youtubing but! It’s sooooooo worth it. Best thing I’ve done all quarantine.
