The Bright Side of Self-Isolation

selfisolation

In today’s post, I wanted to share a few of the benefits I have experienced from self-isolating. I do recognize that with the pandemic, this is a devastating time, and I am grateful that I have not been as impacted as some people by the health and economic consequences. If I could exchange these perceived benefits of mine to be rid of the pandemic, I would. But I also try to see the bright side of things, and I think I really needed some time to reflect.

Sometimes, time on your own is necessary to figure things out, and I think over the past few months, I’ve gotten a better perspective on many things, such as:

Motivational Marvel Monday #1

mmm1

Happy Monday everyone! As you may know, lately I have been marathon-ing the Marvel movies. Superheroes are a great source of inspiration for me-while they may have more formidable and obvious foes than we do in real-life, they still have relatable moments throughout the movies. Especially with the world the way it is right now, I thought I would write a few posts with my favorite motivational quotes from the Marvel Cinematic Universe!

I know my summer classes start today, and whether you work, go to school, or simply have your own goals to accomplish, let’s start the week off inspired!

Things I’m Looking Forward To

lookforwardto

Is anyone else missing activities or places they used to frequent before the pandemic? I know I am! Instead of being nostalgic and remorseful, however, I’ve been trying to look forward to doing them again in the future. I’m not sure what our ‘new normal’ after the pandemic will look like-will our daily life be altered forever? Who knows, but I am hoping that at the end of all of this, I will be able to return to my favorite activities!

Now, am I going to cry when people can safely go out and gather in groups again? Probably not as I’m not into showing emotions like that, but I’m going to be very happy. Without further ado, here are some of the things I’m looking forward to!

Note: All pictures in this post were previously taken; I assure you,  I’ve been taking the stay-at-home orders seriously!

What I’m Watching: Disney+ Edition

disneyplus1

If you follow me on Twitter, you probably already know this (sorry-I’ve tweeted about it a lot), but my brother hooked me up with Disney+! My DVD/Blu-ray collection is almost solely Disney movies (mostly Marvel and a few of my animated Disney faves) , which is the main reason I waited this long to get an account. I told myself I’d think about it later on when some of the new Marvel series like Loki and WandaVision were released.

I was still pretty ecstatic when my brother told me he was getting Disney+. He’s not a huge Disney fan (I’m ashamed to say I have been unable to get him to watch Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame with me), so when he signed up for a year’s subscription for free, I was the first (and only) person he told.

Even though I do already have a lot of Disney movies in my collection, I was so overwhelmed with the selection Disney offers. I grew up with Disney Channel, so all of the original Disney channel movies and shows also sound appealing to me.  Plus, I haven’t caught up with some of the newer releases, so I’ll finally have the chance to watch them!
