Today I am imagining I’m in Brugges with my best friend drinking beers that were way too strong and causing chaos in a basement bar.
The worst part about lockdown is not being able to see my friends. I haven’t been home in 2.5 years and I haven’t seen any of my friends abroad in a year. I’m thankful that I moved into a house where my new roommates are absolutely incredible humans and are always there with distraction activities. But it’s been a really rough year for me and I miss my friends. Most days I’m able to cope because I have my doctorate I’m working towards, but sometimes I do just want to quit everything and move back home.
This doesn’t really have a point to it other than life is hard right now, but I kind of wanted to just put it out there in case anyone else has days they want to quit everything. I know it won’t last forever, I’m going to be getting my vaccine soon since I’m a frontline worker. But today is one of those days where I’m just going to allow myself to feel the things I need before throwing myself back into my research as a distraction. I hope everyone is doing well despite the state of the world right now. In the mean time here are some of my favourite Belgian beers 🍻
