Hi, and we’re from New York and my boyfriend and me live together. Live together for one month and we practice social distancing for a long time. And this year he’s gonna move to Canada and I’m gonna stay here. And I think um. I think at this moment we’re really thankful for having a job, and be healthy and I hope we can get through it really fast.

Okay. So, I’m in a room in small room. Given like the situation in New York City, I left and I came up to Beacon, New York, to my cousin’s place. And we’ve hunkered down here and made it quite the creative experience, I guess, when you have that privilege.

And at first I was sort of very anxious about it all. And by now have settled. And I know that I don’t have to like create something magnificent during the quarantine. I should just stay healthy and alive. But. Creating something would be ideal. So I’ve been working on my next book and so far it’s coming out shit. But the idea is good.

The process for it to be good includes writing out the shitty. Then the good will come through. I hope.

But we’re healthy. We’re alive. And honestly for the writer’s life that I’ve lived so far, quarantine seems pretty much the way I used to live my life, except now I have permission to dive really deep into the things I love creating. So, can’t really complain. It could be much worse.

Hi. I’m calling from New York, and I just wanted to share how I was feeling this week. And I think it’s been tough for some reason. And, I was thinking about it and was thinking why it’s more difficult than other weeks of this. And I think, that it’s because it’s been a really a while, and for me, you know, this whole situation was feeling temporary.

And right now, it’s been already a while. And to me, all the temporary things after they last for a while, they become really annoying. Everything that’s temporary to me, I don’t know, adds somehow to, like, my anxiety and things like that. Like, if it’s not resolved after a while, if it’s been long enough the temporary things, feel like they become the permanent things.

So I think that’s why I’ve been feeling more anxious about the situation. Yeah. That’s my conclusion. Thank you. And at the same time, I think it’s really scary to think that this is the new normal, which is like the thing new reality. Like, it’s really hard to think about it, that this can be, you know, our future for a while. But at the same time, I’m thinking maybe it can be really freeing as well if I just accept the fact that this is how things are going to be in the future too.

So, yeah. Okay. Anyway, I need to go. Thank you so much. Thanks.
