Tonight I made an impromptu decision to get the flu vaccine while I was getting the refill of a medication at the pharmacy. When I asked about the flu vaccine, the pharmacist asked if I also wanted to get the updated Covid19 booster. This is a new booster that was recently approved by the FDA … Continue reading Covid updated booster and flu shot
For the last year, because of the pandemic, I had been working as a shadow teacher for a few kids at their parent’s workplace. Because the kids are going back to school, today was my last day. As I said goodbye to the girls, I couldn’t help but think about everything we went through this … Continue reading Saying goodbye to my students
Last week, after I got the Covid-19 vaccine on Thursday, I didn’t work out that day or the next. The CDC’s instructions were to take it easy after getting the vaccine. I did that the first time and I didn’t have any side effects except for some pain in the upper left arm, where I … Continue reading New rowing machine

For a short spring break, I went away with my parents to the beach for the weekend, since it was a long weekend. I didn’t know what to expect because the beach is always very crowded during Easter weekend but I thought maybe this year would be different because of COVID. It was very crowded … Continue reading Spring break 2021
Last week, after getting the vaccine, I thought I would be able to finish week 4 of my workout routine. This is the first time, since I started doing these videos that I haven't completed a whole week of videos but it wasn't because I didn't want to, my arm hurt when I moved it. … Continue reading Started week four again

This year however,we can’t celebrate together, so … Continue reading Happy New Year 2021!
Well, today we all got to experience a very new kind of Christmas. No big family parties, no hugging or kissing and everyone sitting at different tables. Not being able to be close to one another was different, but it was what we had to do to be safe. I hope that even though we … Continue reading Merry Christmas!
First day of my Christmas vacation was a success! I haven’t rested much but I did sort of complete my goal for today. My mom and I decided we’re going to be walking in different places during our vacation. Today we were going to the beach and our goal was to walk three miles. It … Continue reading Walking in the sand
Right now I think it’s one of those times where having something to focus on and distract yourself is very important. I have found two things, exercise and writing. I think that’s what’s keeping me sane right now with all these horrible Covid19 news. I don’t write about Covid anymore like I did in the … Continue reading Exercising to stay sane
I thought that by July this should all be under control, I mean, we have been living with this huge mess for over four months now. We should have our act together by now, but no, it’s just getting worse. People just want to go “back to normal“ but WE CAN’T. That is not normal … Continue reading This is not over yet
These days, if you get sick or have any symptoms of anything, the only thing anyone thinks about is Coronavirus. That makes complete sense to me because, what if you do have it? Well, you have to get tested. So, after having a headache and fever, I went to get tested for COVID19. I was … Continue reading COVID-19 Testing
I thought I could hold on longer but this couldn’t wait anymore, I needed a haircut. It was getting pretty bad, I already had pretty bad split ends but I didn’t think about going back to a beauty parlor yet. I know they’re open but it’s still very risky. I’ve heard those are some of … Continue reading My first DIY haircut
After two months in quarantine I went back to work on Monday and things are a lot different than they were two months ago. There are less people around but those few of us are still distancing from each other, wearing masks, constantly cleaning and washing our hands or using hand sanitizer. While it feels … Continue reading Going back to work during COVID_19
I had a weird feeling today. I wanted it to be special because it wasn’t only my birthday, it was a big one, my 30th. I thought it wouldn’t be because of the quarantine and COVID19 situation were facing right now, but it didn’t. My family didn’t miss the opportunity to have yet another reunion … Continue reading Birthday in quarantine
