Just because I refuse to leave the house, it doesn’t mean I can’t enrich myself culturally. I have marathoned close to a dozen shows from various countries (mostly british procedural dramas with an episode of Avatar thrown in for variety). I talk back to the screen and work on my accents.
I also added a bunch of places to my bucket list. The Western Air temple. Marseille, Strasbourg, Ba Sing Se, Prague.
Unfortunately all attempts to save for travel were thwarped by my need for shopping therapy.
This whole episode has left me with quite the impressive purse collection. I never quite thought about how much I spend on food. Losing interest in anything that wasn’t milk and cereal means I can now comfortably afford an new phone without dipping into savings.
I have gained about 20lbs. That meant I had to go out and buy pants. I stopped by the bank on the way to the pants store. Yay adulting.
I learned that my pets are lifesavers. Surprise kitten attacks from around the corner bring spikes of joy. I’d forgotten that feeling for a bit.
