10 things I’ve learned in quarantine so far:
- How to perfect the top knot
- I don’t really like sheet masks
- Tostito’s chips are my quarantine snack of choice
- Cut your buttermilk biscuits bigger otherwise you’ll end up with tiny baby biscuits (still good just sorta small!)
- Meditation is actually cool if you do it often enough
- Way more people have instant coffee on hand than I thought (@ everyone making whipped coffee right now & I’m jealous)
- Boxed wine > bottles of wine
- My apartment gets really nice morning sun
- Anthropologie candles are the best candles & last FOREVER (this one is my fave)
- Journaling actually keeps you sane. For real.
Number 10 isn’t really really a surprise to me–I’ve been a writer as long as I can remember. I have at least twelve volumes of childhood diaries, a handful of journals of poetry (High school Kasia was a poet–fun fact!), this blog (duh), and no less than 5 current journals that all have different purposes depending on what I’m writing. Writing is the #1 way I process emotions (my therapist can verify) and I 10/10 recommend it to anyone, ESPECIALLY during this weird/crazy time.
But I get that not everyone is a natural writer & staring at a blank page to be filled with your deepest emotions~ can be daunting. So I put together some of my favorite journal prompts (that are not cheesy or LAME) for non-journalers who may want to become one.
