It’s Been a Long Time!

I’m currently at home in the midst of the Coronavirus outbreak doing some voluntary and necessary social distancing. Now that I’m spending more time indoors, I’ve been planning out activities to distract myself from boredom haha. I was thinking that now is the time to do those things I always put off for later, such as organizing my closet and bedroom, and then it came to mind that enough time has passed by since the last time I did a blogpost. Thus, I’m here sitting on the floor of my room, laptop on my legs, writing. Bedroom cleaning can wait haha.

Before anything, I wanted to take a minute and talk about what’s going on in the world right now. Although it’s coming to light new information about coronavirus and, little by little, we are learning more about the disease, what to do, and how to treat it, the fight is not over as there are still developing new cases in different countries. To overcome this situation, everyone has to put a little effort and work together. I might not be working at a hospital yet (hopefully soon I’ll enter my residency!), but what I’ve been doing is staying at home. Although that sounds like it’s not very useful haha, if few people are on the streets, there’s less chance of the virus spreading, as simple as that. It might not be the ideal situation for everyone, but it’s only temporary and I believe it will make a difference. Thus, I encourage everyone to make the effort and remain safe at home. 

A few months ago, I would not have imagined that countries would be paralyzed and forced to put all efforts into controlling this virus. If I look back at late last year, the only thing on my mind was my residency exam. I would visualize the months of February and March as days in which I was going to enjoy coffee at the cafes I like, going to the movies with my boyfriend, working out at the gym, just being able to live happy and exam free haha. The situation we are at now has made me more aware of how lucky I am to have my family together and in good health, and that for me is far more important than anything, more important than going out.

Maybe 2020 and the coronavirus are a reminder that working together, having each other on our mind, kindness and empathy, are key to moving on and important to overcome this obstacle and more.
