I’m one of the rare ones who’s able to go to work and make money. I’m one of the rare ones who’s an essential employee working on location. I’m one of the rare ones who can continue going out and getting groceries. A privilege of mine that most can’t use. I can come home with no problems.

However, It’s not to say I’m scared about what I’m dealing with. Having a slightly normal schedule still gives me a 50/50 chance of being infected with COVID and 50/50 chance of surviving or dying from it. There’s a lot of stress involved in this whole thing and I’m doing my best not to have it get the best of me. Of course, I read and watch some things in social media and I start to shrink a little bit.

Over the past few weeks there have been a number of reported cases of slander and attacks amongst Asian community who’ve been the subject of this COVID-19 mess. I always think about my mom and my family who live in such a place of conservatism and hope that none of them get any flack for being who they are. The world continues to baffle me with such stupidity thinking we are a born disease.

I’ve been briefly monitoring the Church superstars and the people who are on TV. It’s very clear to me that this is a good time for gains. Most notably a good time to make sure their heir to the throne is kept tight after everything blows over. I can’t blame them though. They need this in order to validate their worth. Because without their heir they truly have nothing.

With all this going on, however, it’s helped me slow down an already slowed down life. I’ve been able to look at some of the things I’ve neglected and been able to make time for the things I missed the most. Pictures have been fun to take again. Music has been exciting to write. Video games are still frustrating. But with all that I’ve kept a steady pace even when most folks are at a complete stop.

My hope is that everything changes after we get a better understanding of this virus. I still think that everyone needs to respect peoples’ space even after this is over. I’ll probably keep this mask on just to make sure that if I do end up being a carrier that I don’t give it to someone that may die from it. It’s the least I could do.
