We have officially finished our 3rd week of quarantine and online coursework. It is very different to be learning some of this material over the internet instead of in our very hands-on lab classes. I am so thankful for current technologies that are enabling us to continue our education and learning during this world-wide pandemic. I figured I would take this time to express my gratitude for a handful of the things in my life I am thankful for. Similar to the type of post I do for Thanksgiving every year:
My puppy, Lily. She is handling the quarantine like a pro! I think she likes having me home with her all day. And she is getting tons of attention right now since she has a dog walker come play with her and walk her multiple times a day. So, I guess I am equally thankful for the dog walker!
My faith, friends, and family. I think we all have moments where we feel lonely, especially during self-quarantine or isolation. I can always count on those that love me to help cheer me up! It is also helpful to my spirits and mood when I am able to serve them by reaching out to cheer them up.
My on-campus apartment. I live in a studio apartment, but it is nice and cozy. I have everything I need to get by. Most importantly, AmazonFresh and Instacart deliver groceries to me, so I literally don’t have to go anywhere right now!
This is Lily trying to take up the entire couch. Definitely not cool, we both have to fit on it!
