COVID-19 Diaries


The past two weeks have been pretty crazy, as I'm sure you all know. Our lives have really been turned upside down in ways that we've never experienced before. Personally, as the major homebody/introvert/anti-social queen that I am, I definitely don't mind staying at home and doing my part to flatten the curve. The only thing I can really say that I've been missing is going out to eat, especially my favorite restaurants that have closed down completely during this time.

It took me around a week and a half, but I really think I'm starting to get the hang of this new lifestyle. I'm working between the hours of 8 and 5 on weekdays and I'm really starting to utilize my lunch hour and evening time to get stuff done now that I've adjusted. Even though I am being a little bit productive in my free time, I'm definitely still watching tons of shows and movies and personally think we all should be using this time to watch as much as we can because why not! I've found so many gems on Disney+ now that I've really had time to sit down and explore it.

Some of my favorite movies on Disney+ are Get A Clue, Lion King 1½, StarStruck, Monsters University, and Big Business. Honestly you really can't go wrong with any of the Lindsay Lohan movies on there. If shows are more your style, my Netflix favorites are Reign, Kim's Convenience, and Merlin. Be sure to check out my frequently updated Netflix list for more of my favorites!

Some other fun non-TV-related activities we've been doing in my house are outdoor walks, drawing with chalk on the driveway, trying new recipes, and home improvement projects. If we're staying home for much longer, I might get to the point of cleaning out my closet – still not sure that I'll be willing to get rid of anything though! I just love all of my clothes. I think the problem is that my closet is too small.

I've been focusing on creating a lot of content particularly for Instagram to provide a source of entertainment + fun in your day to day life. If you follow along, I thought our March Madness polls to crown the ultimate snack were a lot of fun. If you don't follow along, be sure to start! My username is @madisoncarter12 and I have more fun things on the way that you can join in on!

I'm always available to talk if you're bored or lonely, all of my social media links are in the top left of the screen and my email address is on the contact page. Feel free to reach out — we can talk Netflix, snacks, Jonas Brothers — you name it!

I hope you all stay safe, stay healthy, and make smart choices during this time to help keep everyone around you safe and healthy as well. I'll see you on Instagram!
