In her post on Toxic Productivity over at Mental Health @ Home, Ashley calls bullshit on the idea that being productive is a more worthy goal than just kicking back and living your life. That if you aren’t emerging from Covid with a new skill or accomplishment under your belt, you’re a complete waste of space.
Which got me thinking…
Have I been hibernating through Covid, letting the days and months flow into time I’ll never get back? Have I learned anything since that first lockdown in March of 2020?
I’ve learned that…
- I don’t like Zoom.
- Hanging out in your robe makes your clothes shrink.
- Adding white chocolate and butterscotch chips to anything makes it better.
- Running errands is an outing, not a chore.
- Covid does not make Pringles any less fattening.
- Masks are cheaper than facelifts.
- You can’t have too many streaming services.
- Being banned from planes, restaurants, and movie theatres isn’t the end of the world. It just feels like it.
