#AmCurrently Update: Apparently You Want to Know What I’m Doing While Social Distancing

You all are too kind to me!! I’m boring!!!

About a week ago (time is a complete mush in my head now), I put out a link to a feedback survey that was supposed to go up on my blogiversary but didn’t because I’m a mess. And for a question about what content you want me to post, a lot of you wanted to know what’s up with my life amidst this COVID-19 social distancing nightmare!

So I’ve decided to please you all with that exact post, because 1) I am running really really low on post ideas, and 2) I’m annoying and enjoy talking about my own life!! (You know that one post on every social media platform that’s like “I have this weird self-esteem issue where I hate myself but also think I’m better than everyone else”? That’s me.)

Also, if you’d like to fill the survey out, it’s still open and I’d really appreciate it!! I love the validation, yes, but I also value your feedback, especially in terms of what content you guys are interested in. (And if you’ve already filled it out, you have my entire heart!!!)

DAILY LIFE

My school was very kind and gracious, for once in their life, and they extended spring break for another week! So it’s the end of my extended break right now, and I’m living my best life without school.

ft my COVID-19 journal!

Unfortunately, I’ll be starting “distance learning” (they really could just say online learning) on Monday. But I’m VERY happy that my classes are only from 9 to 2, with 45 min class periods and an abnormally lengthy 1.5-long hour lunch break. And I don’t have any classes on Wednesdays!!

I have to do virtual classes for dance too—we’re doing live video calls and pre-recorded videos and it’s kind of fun, despite the fact that I have zero dancing space. My spring show was supposed to happen this weekend, but we’ll be having a “filming day” for 6 hours to film all of our pieces instead. It will go terribly but that’s okay!

Other Really Exciting news:

  • I’ve been going to sleep around 3 or 4am and waking up around 12 or 1pm, and though I am getting my 8 hours, you all should still yell at me!!!
  • My mental health has been so good? I suffer when I don’t have structure/things that force me to be productive (like school), but I’m doing well besides the anxiety that everyone’s feeling!
  • I started a journal where I write entries each day about what’s going on with COVID-19! I’m giving it to my history teacher so she can create a depository for future historians to look back on because I’m a NERD like that.

AM CURRENTLY READING…

ImageI’m officially AHEAD of my Goodreads challenge, for the first time since like 2018!!! So far in March, I’ve read 21 books (out of 28 books total for the year…), which is the most I’ve ever read in a month. I’m drunk on the feeling of power and superiority (to my past self), even though 12 of the books were the 20-paged Fence comic issues. :o)

I definitely have been reading a LOT more now that I’m home and have the time. I’m still struggling to feel in the mood for most books, but at least I can push through it! Strangely, I’m not turning to happy fluffy books, like most people I know are doing—I actually reread Ari and Dante and The Song of Achilles (sobbing ensued).

some of my latest reads!

I’ve been taking advantage of the free 30-day access to Scribds collection, which has a lot of books my library doesn’t have!! I’ve been reading shorter books for my GR challenge but also because of my deteriorating attention span. But I want to use Scribd to listen to audiobooks while reading along in my physical books! It helps with previously mentioned stupid attention span.

(I’ve also been writing reviews, for once in my life!! They take me HOURS because I’m out of practice but I’m having a lot of fun being active again on Goodreads.)

AM CURRENTLY WATCHING…

Criminal Minds, Season 7 on iTunes
they look so stupid…… I love them

Criminal Minds has been my latest obsession, and there were a few days when I would watch it the entire day from like 1 in the afternoon to 7 in the evening. It was bad. Luckily I got a life and am now doing some other things, and I save it for the end of the day!

I also watched some other things, which I totally forgot about because Criminal Minds has taken over my two brain cells, but most of them were bad so I guess my brain was courteous enough to block it from memory. I watched Love is Blind (I hate drama and I ESPECIALLY hate heterosexual drama), The Bling Ring (probably the worst movie I’ve ever seen), and Moonlight (amazing! showstopping! stunning! one of my favorites!).

this is Jessica, she’s on LiB and she’s the worst. this was my face watching the show!

I think sometime in the near future I’ll watch Portrait of a Lady on Fire, and I’ve played with the idea of watching Anne with an E, but if you have any recs please tell me!! Not saying I’ll get to them soon though because… Criminal Minds… but I will watch them eventually!

(And if you’re worried I forgot about Miraculous Ladybug, don’t be! I’ve been rewatching episodes of that too!! <3)

AM CURRENTLY WRITING (BARELY)…

At the beginning of my social distancing, I was working on the mystery/thriller WIP I had abandoned my NaNo WIP for. But then I went and reread the 10k words I wrote of my NaNo WIP and suddenly I was in love with the characters again and decided to abandon my mystery WIP, like an idiot!

NaNoWriMoI’m planning on participating in Camp NaNoWriMo with a rat (if you click on this link you will be blessed by seeing beauty and unprecedented skill). My dilemma is that I had no plot, conflict, or worldbuilding whatsoever with my NaNo WIP, so I have to do all of that now. But the good news is that because I did so little character development, I could theoretically just pluck them out of this mess and put them in another! Thank you past May for being the worst.

I also have been writing some poetry (as in one. I wrote one poem) and it wasn’t emo!!! It’s about space because I’m gay and that’s all I’m write about. Here are the only good lines!


shall we chat

what shenanigans have you been up to? are you reading and/or watching lots of netflix? will you be participating in camp nano? i hope you’ve all been staying as safe & healthy as possible!! it’s perfectly okay to do nothing in this time of crisis <33

  1. Hey
    so i loved your post by the way.
    and what shenanigans am I up to?
    well… for one I hadn’t posted any thing on my blog till today so that’s that.
    and I’m just currently pigging around on my bed and chatting with friend i have no idea when I will see in person.

  2. I’m glad that you’ve been able to find some positives in the craziness of all that is happening right now. I just started online classes this week and it’s definitely been a transition, but I am slowly learning to find a rhythm in what times I need to be ready for Zoom classes and when I can create my own schedule for homework and other activities. I also love the idea of starting a journal to track what is happening with COVID-19. I think this is one of those moments that will define our generation, and you inspire me to start keeping a record! Good luck with Camp NaNo 🙂

  3. You’re so lucky you get breaks on Wednesdays?? For me there’s no schedule or anything and they basically just expect you do do all of your work. Scribd is such a lifesaver – I’m so happy they have the trial. And also your poem is so beautiful!! Hope you’re doing well 💖

  5. Hey – congrats on the 3 years! This was a great post, and good job on getting your life somewhat on track (that’s a humongous accomplishment in itself xD). And I literally just started Loveboat, Taipei today – is it good? It had some pretty mixed reviews on Goodreads.
    Also, I just sent in a response to your form! I know I already wrote this in via the form, but if you’re still out of post/rec ideas you should cover some sapphic, preferably Asian rec posts. Seriously, I’m dying for more of these and it’s nigh impossible to find them.

      thank you for the feedback, i really appreciate it!! honestly i don't think i know more than 3 or 4 sapphic asian books that aren't kind of known already, but i definitely will keep your post suggestion in mind, since i love that idea! 💕

  11. I’m honestly so curious to know how literally everyone is handling social distancing. I love when bloggers share random tidbits about their personal lives, because otherwise my only knowledge of them as people is based on books. Basically, as much as you enjoy talking about your life, I enjoy reading about it!

    Anyways, I’m SO jealous that your spring break got extended! My college is making my life hellish because even though we took a break to switch to online learning, they’re shutting down classes for another week to deal with problems they didn’t have the foresight to fix when they closed down the first time. While all these shut downs sound great, it means that they shortened our spring break to 3 days. And the only time we ever get a break from tests and assignments is over spring break. So even though school is closed now, I can’t even enjoy it because I have tons of work to do. I thought I’d have a week to read over spring break, and now my dreams have been crushed! (Sorry for the mini-rant. I have a lot of feeling about how my school is handling things.)

    Congrats on getting ahead on your reading challenge! It’s such a great feeling! In fact, I always set my Goodreads challenge way below my actual goal that way I’m always ahead! Also, I really enjoyed reading your poem, and I’d love to see more!

    I hope online learning goes well, and you get in the reading mood soon! 💕

    1. i’m with you — i love hearing about bloggers’ lives! it makes me feel a lot closer to them and it’s just interesting to hear about (though i understand those who don’t share that much too haha). and aahh it makes me happy to hear you enjoy me talking about my life 🥺

      don’t apologize for ranting, that’s a totally sucky situation! i’m really sorry to hear that you can’t even take advantage of your school closure right now because of your workload :(( do you think switching to online classes will mean less tests/assignments / your school will make some adjustments to workload/grading?

      thank you so much! it feels so unreal to finally be ahead lmao. and oh i’ve always wanted to set my goal below my actual goal, but i’ve always set it to 100 and it would bother me if i didn’t do that consistently 😭 and AAHH thank you, i’m glad you enjoyed reading the snippet of my poem!!

      1. Yes, exactly! Other people’s lives are so interesting to hear about!

        Since I’ve had online classes already for a week and a half before they closed school again, I don’t really think there’s been much change to my workload for the better. It has a lot to do with the professors and the department policies and changes, rather than the overall school policy, which is to be as lenient as possible. But I’ve had a lot of professors say they plan on making their tests much harder because they’re worried about cheating. And now on top of homework, there are assignments to watch random videos before class, and attend additional review classes at random times. But even without all that, I just don’t learn well in an online environment. The ridiculous measures my professors are taking just exacerbate things.

        I really hope that your online learning experience is a lot better than mine! ❤

I’m so glad you’re resting and having fun, but as you’ve asked us to yell at you, well GO TO BED EARLIER YOU NEED TO START ORGANIZING A DECENT SLEEP SCHEDULE FOR WHEN ONLINE CLASSES START! 😛 I hope those will go well too. My Easter break is in around two weeks, and it’s only one week, and it won’t even feel like holidays. I’m having online classes for some subjects and for others my teachers don’t care and just upload the Powerpoints and expect us to teach ourselves, which sucks. I’m also doing my internship work from home, watching netflix and reading a lot. It’s not the worst situation possible, but I actually don’t have a lot of time to rest!

  21. ok i seriously love your am currently updates though!! please do more because it’s so fun to read about you talking about your life?? 🥺 (i promise i’m not a stalker.) lol this social distancing thing has been amazing for my extreme introverted self. lately, i’ve been watching k-dramas, listening to k-drama OSTs, etc. instead of reading or blogging though :”) what can i say? i’m trash. but honestly, k-dramas are a welcome distraction at the moment because most are very happy & lovely and that’s what i need right now

    1. aww, CAITLIN!!! it makes me actually really happy to hear that you enjoy my am currently updates, i feel like i just keep talking forever 🥺💛 and yes, i’m enjoying my social distancing! i think i’d like to be able to go out with my friends like once but for the most part i’m having a great time. and aahh i’ve never watched a k-drama but i’m really glad you’re enjoying them and that they’re giving you the happiness/distraction you need! ❤

  22. Aw May, I know exactly what you mean about that social media meme about hating myself and thinking I’m better than everyone 😅 I officially decided I’m only really posting on my blog about wrap-ups after realizing that’s the one thing I’m most passionate about talking about because 🗣MAJORITY OF IT IS ABOUT ME. So, yeah. Aaanyway, I hope e-learning has been going smoothly for you–it has not for me. I am drowning in papers and outlines for papers and pre-drafts for papers and I’m trying to remember why I wanted to be an English major again. Lol, I hope the filming goes better for you and you watch something that isn’t Love is Blind! Because I’ve heard a lot about it and it does not sound all that good!

    P.S. I’m also horrible at watching things and I’ve only watched one (1) movie since social distancing requirements were enacted. One (1) movie. It was Knives Out, but still. Yikes.

  23. HI! I’m so late on this but let’s start a Jessica and Barnett from Love is Blind hate club together (i’m watching it with a bunch of college friends and we’re only on like episode five but oh boy do we have opinions). also, I’m so glad your mental health is doing okay ❤ ❤

  24. The COVID-19 journal is a very nice idea! Such kind of thing will be very useful when the future generations want to learn what happened in 2020 and how people survive the pandemic. Kinda like Anne Frank’s Diary of a Young Girl.

    (I enjoy drama but I also dislike heterosexual drama. I will only watch it if it has no love storyline or if it’s soooo minor that it can get overshadowed by other things in the drama.)

    1. ah i ended up discontinuing the journal because i’m lazy and all my entries were saying the same thing 😭😭 but it’d definitely be interesting to read about some of other people’s experiences!!

      and honestly i think i would’ve loved that show (or any dating show like that) if it were gay… one day, one day :((

  25. Ahh I understand that. If I ever write one, I’d end up talking about the same thing too 😅 There’s nothing much happening in my life. And yup, other people’s experiences might be different from us so it’s gonna be interesting to read theirs.

    One day… Yes, one day *aggressively wishing*
