My Quarantine Life: Passing Time

Updated: May 15, 2021

These are strange times, my friends. Many of us are finding ourselves with more time on our hands than we know what to do with. That is, those of us without children at home or who aren't working remotely. Those that are deemed the strongest of us by some higher power are plodding through both.

I am working remotely, but outside of that, I have found that if I don't stay busy, my mind wanders to dark corners. Where really, just no one should go. It's not productive and it's certainly not what one would call fun.

So! For the sake of keeping busy and for maybe providing others with some ideas to stay busy enough to stay out of their own heads, here is how I pass my time during this strange quarantine life.


I'm just going to go ahead and say it. I MISS THE GD GYM. Headphones, iron, and just me working out the frustrations and anxiety of the day. It has been rather painful to try and adjust to a schedule without the gym.

However, I have scraped together a modest and barely passable array of fitness equipment that, when paired with a couple of brisk daily walks with my doggo and my wifey, and my sister's Daily Burn membership (Thanks Sissa. You know you the best.) allow me to retain some of my sanity.

For your browsing leisure, here are some of the home gym vids that I've found particularly useful!

Yeah. I've watched a lot of them. I've been desperate, you guys.
