So, we're going back to "normal" and I'm going back to work in a week and a part of me is panicking because I've enjoyed the slower pace and not having to think about anything except the present. What I'm saying is here's a list of things I thought about, realizations and to-do's but keep forgetting while in quarantine:

  • Wear what you want to wear- funky, extravagant, edgy, quirky. You be you girl.
  • Things you have to spend for post quarantine: laser, hair treatment, hydrafacial, eyelash extensions, nails, massage, dentist
  • End of year target savings $7000-$10000
  • Renew learner's license, take lessons. get license.
  • July-redesigned room
  • Finish script end of year
  • Why did I say yes to going back to work again?
