This *blog* has been a long time coming, since the beginning of last month, but a lot has been going on and I have NOT had the energy to write. I don't know why, but for some reason this always takes a lot out of me. But...here goes. I'll try to keep it short in words, since this is pretty picture heavy. I don't like to have things too tl;dr.

Just wanted to share my Halloween day with you all because I thought it was pretty fun! Hope you enjoy!

My days usually are not remotely fun, interesting or exciting. I stay home 24/7 now which I love but I kinda do the same stuff every day. The night before (October 30) I had prepared the dough I was going to make for my cookies🍪 because it has to be refrigerated overnight. The first thing I did when I woke up, which I did at 10 AM which was totally unusual for me but I guess I was excited about the day.



I started off making the actual cookies, and this is such an EASY recipe for cooking...

So, since I am self quarantining and am not going to work until April 2nd, I thought it would be fun to write an article of stuff I am doing or would recommend others to do during this time. Obvious statement is obvious, but...no matter what you do don't risk your health for any of this! It's just for fun. So let's get started then!

Take a Bubble Bath 🛀 OR Shower 🚿

For me, relaxing with a warm bath or taking a nice long shower is both physically and mentally helpful during this time. First of all you get clean! Secondly, it's (usually) relaxing. If you can, find some menthol whether...

I thought this might be fun to do since I haven't done one of these articles in awhile, and never on this club. Enjoy!

1. I wash my hair at least six days a week. Greasy hair is one of my biggest pet peeves.
2. Speaking of pet peeves, people are my biggest one.
3. My favorite colors are brown, purple and gray.
4. My dream climate is thunderstorms. Daily. I even get seasonal depression, but instead of hating the winter/needing sun, I need to hear thunder.
5. For the most part, I name my furry pets after favorite characters. My goldfish are always Rome-themed.
My dog is named Horatio while my tortie cat is named Calleigh
