5 Things I Miss About Going Out In Public

Never did I ever think I'd be tired of watching Netflix on my couch.

5 Things I Miss About Going Out In Public

Another day of staying at home due to the pandemic, another day of missing all my favorite things out in the real world. I am very thankful that I have a home to be able to ride this out in, however, I am so tired of ordering to-go food or getting food delivered to my home. I want to go out in public, I want to go to the store, I want to see my friends and not just over Zoom calls.

So here are some things I am missing the most from when life was normal. (B.C.) (before corona)

1. I miss going out to restaurants.


I miss going out for appetizers and drinks with all my friends! I want to put on some too tight jeans, sit in a crowded corner booth of a dimly light, over-priced restaurant and talk shit with all my besties. I can't wait for the first Happy Hour when life is back to normal. I never thought I'd say this, but I am sick of drinking wine at home alone, I need a trendy new place stat.

2. I miss going to the beach.


Like queen Nene Leakes is doing in this gif, I want to go to the beach and twerk with my friends. I miss being able to lay out on the sand with a margarita and just kick it with my homies. The minute all this craziness is over I am sprinting to the beach with my whole crew in tow.

3. I miss people watching.


You can sit on a park bench, an outside table at a restaurant or literally anywhere in public and people-watch. I miss just seeing strangers pass me by while I'm imagining their lives. You can see some colorful characters depending on where you look, and its always interesting to see people so different than yourself. This sounds like a weird one but I promise it's not.

4. I miss my other family members.


Myself, like most people, have been cooped up with their family, but not their extended family. Of course, I love my parents but I miss my nieces, my grandparents, cousins, and many other people. I miss being able to see my other family members whenever, wherever I wanted.

5. I miss life being normal.


As if life is ever normal, but more normal than what it is today. I miss talking about things other than this virus. I miss being able to think about going on trips, or even making plans at all. Even though we have little human interaction in these times, any interaction I do get, Corona is always brought up. I just miss making small talk about the weather, traffic, world news, celebrities, literally anything other than Corona.

As any other person on this planet, it sometimes can be hard to find the good in things. However, as I have always tried my hardest to find happiness in any and every moment and just generally always try to find the best in every situation, I have realized that your own happiness is much more important than people often think. Finding the good in any situation can help you to find happiness in some of the simplest and unexpected places.

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.

Recently, an article on Total Sorority Move called 23 Things My Boyfriend Better Not Get Me For Christmas, was going around on social media. I hope the author of this was kidding or using digital sarcasm, but I am still repulsed and shocked by the lack of appreciation throughout this article. I would like to represent the girlfriends out there who disagree with her standpoint -- the girlfriends who would be more than happy to receive any of these gifts from their boyfriends.
