I Can't Stand 55
I'm sleeping a lot lately. I'm wondering if it's depression/boredom. If I don't sleep 12 hours, I sleep for six. That might be anxiety (although I'm not as worried about dying as I was at the beginning of this).
I did manage to write the first draft of a short novel and start the first draft of a second one. So I have been productive. I've also done freelance work.
Yes, I'm a homebody and an introvert. But I would love to go to a restaurant or sit in Starbucks and people watch. Or drive to Spokane and have Korean food. And I'm a bit of a rebel. When I'm told I can't do something, that makes me want to do it more.
I live in Washington State and our governor is taking his own sweet time letting things open up. He has a four-stage plan but says stage one will last "at least" three weeks.
I also desperately need a haircut.
How are you handling the lock down? Or has your state opened up? Let me know in the comments.
