Random, Hidden Figure

This is more appropriate for Instagram, but I’ve pulled back away from social media a lot these last few months. Also – having not really been outside or walking around in an age and a day… I seem to be seeing and noticing details more. Is that weird?

Week Delays

You’d think that with being at home 24/7, I’d have more time. And in some really weird turn of events, that doesn’t really seem to be the case.

Alanis Morissette: Ablaze

In addition to the song, I found myself pulling up this video more than once over the last few days. I was just mesmerized by Morissette’s interactions with her daughter. As someone who is a terrible multi-tasker, as someone who is not a parent… I was just in awe of her.

The Dead Twelve Milkmen Monkeys

As I was watching this video and feeling like I was kneeling on the carpet in my parents’ living room, something struck me as kind of odd. I was looking at the background, at where the band was recording this video.

Foiler Caper

The thing of it is: Liz and I never got around to playing it. Because we spent all our time trying to read and understand the rules. And then after we failed to understand the mechanics, we had to look up a YouTube video explaining how to actually play the game.

Counting the Days

Just doing the math now, and it’s been… 130 days. A bit over four months, that we’ve isolated at home and stopped hugging the people who don’t live under the same roof. It’s difficult to compare the description of time (four months) with the feeling of time. Because it feels like it’s been so much longer.
