It is such a beautiful day here in Seattle. It is 80 degrees fahrenheit, which is the warmest it has been all year! I am really enjoying this warmth right now.
My stay at home quarantine is over!
Well, I’m still not going out or hanging out with people. Let me explain.
Washington state still has a stay home and stay safe over still. I personally have to go back to work because my job opened back up and I need to make money to pay my bills.
However, I am not going out except to the grocery store once a week. I still won’t be hanging out with people even when Washington state starts opening up just to stay safe.
I honestly really enjoyed my quarantine and I didn’t mind being at home all the time.
It is now, when I had all these plans lined up in May, that gets to me more. My mom was supposed to get here tomorrow, and obviously now she won’t be.
Anyways, I just had my first week back at work and it was such a slow week. I work at a coffee shop and so I had to stand for my entire shift and kind of just stare.
I felt like a security guard honestly.
I’m hoping next week will be a little more eventful.
However, I am grateful to still have a job. There are many people who don’t have one.
I am also very grateful of my time at home. I had a really good 6 weeks, and I am so lucky to have such a supportive and loving family.

I find myself becoming stressed and overwhelmed when I am thinking about work and it’s because I let the things that I care about affect me too much. Kind of that I care too much.
But… caring isn’t the issue, it’s letting it affect me.
I am an emotional person, and I care a lot. That is something that I can’t change. The thing that I can change is that I acknowledge my feelings but I am not letting it control my entire day, and my entire life.
I am working on it, and I am not going to change overnight but it is something that I am aware of.
Some of my new interests
Since school is over, I have the freedom to learn and explore whatever I please. Something that I am growing more interest in is gardening.
Specifically urban gardening. I want to learn how to be more sustainable with my food so if and when this ever does happen again, I am already learning how to grow my own foods.
I am also interested in learning more about plants themselves.
Two people I have been learning from on YouTube are:
Summer Rayne Oakes: https://www.youtube.com/user/summerrayneoakes
Epic Gardening: https://www.youtube.com/user/EpicGardening
I really enjoy watching YouTube videos when I am cleaning, planning, and cooking because I can learn so much from a video and I am entertained.
I am still on my ʻŌlelo Hawaiʻi journey, I am trying to plan out the best way to study without making it feel like school work.
I am still journaling everyday, and now I am making this blog a part of my priorities! I will be posting every Monday and Friday.
One of them will be a more personal post like this one, and the other one will be more of an informational post.
If you all have any other suggestions on blog posts I will be happy to make them.
I think that is all I have for this update!
Thank you for reading and I hope you all are staying healthy and SAFE!
