7 Things I’ve Been Missing During Isolation

COVID-19 took the world by storm and flipped all of our lives upside down in a matter of days. And while we have been learning to adjust to the current "norms", there are plenty of things we miss about the way things used to be. Things we used to enjoy before we worried about a virus without a cure every time we left the house. Here are a few of those things I've been missing, and I can't be the only one.

1. Going to the beach

Giphy

The beach is my happy place, and not being able to sit in the sand and swim in the ocean has really sucked these past few months.

2. Sports (collegiate, professional, and high school)

Giphy

This one seems pretty obvious, but personally, baseball is one of the few sports I thoroughly understand. So, yeah. That sucks. Not to mention all the senior athletes that had their final seasons taken away from them.

3. State parks

Giphy

I like to go hiking at Hanging Rock State Park in my home state (North Carolina), and this has been closed to help the social distance practice.

4. Going out to eat at sit-down restaurants

Giphy

While eating at home has been a great use of family time, it was also very common for my family to go sit down and eat. Mostly, I miss sitting down to eat and catch up with friends.

5. Leisurely browsing in retail stores

Giphy

Target is my personal favorite to simply walk around, but this goes for literally any store I would normally shop at.

6. Hanging out with big groups of friends

Giphy

I don't know about you, but I'm ready for a movie night with my friends.

7. Actually GOING to school (oddly enough)

Giphy

I've said it before, I'll say it again: I MISS BEING AT MY COLLEGE. (Sorry if the gif hurts your head, oops)

STAY HOME so we can get back to these things soon, please.

Sometimes I Prefer The World A Bit Blurry

Ignorance is actually pretty bliss...

I have been wearing glasses since I was seven years old. When I was young, I loved wearing my glasses. Noticing each individual leaf on a tree or the distinct smile lines on my mother's face was an absolute dream. Now I prefer to take off my glasses at times, despite being considered legally blind. Twinkle lights glow brighter when blurred. It is easier to ignore the graying hairs when viewed in a softer light. All in all, the famous cliche "ignorance is bliss" couldn't be truer.

Since March, Covid-19 required most of the world to quarantine in their homes. Majority of people ended up working from home for nearly five months. This meant pet owners were constantly with their pets giving them attention, playing with them, letting them out etc. Therefore, when the world slowly started to open up again and pet owners began returning to normal life work schedules away from the home, pet owners noticed a difference in the way their pet acted.
