Learnin' Things Vol 2.
Some more of my discoveries over the past 100 days:
*Air Pods or headphones are necessary.
*Also a second room, when living with a spouse 24/7.
*I don't think I ever felt like I belonged anywhere, and THAT'S OKAY.
*I may not be a beach person, but I do find the changing weather by the ocean EXCITING.
*I can now add 'BLOGGER' to my list of collected identities.
*Time moves fast no matter how much I try to fight it.
*Homemade masks are fun, affordable, and crucial to my efforts at stopping time.
*I am not as sentimental as I once was.
*My boyfriend is my mirror and reflects myself back at me, whether I like it or not.
*Cacio E Pepe is amazing. Always. Always. Always.
*Banana Bread is overrated.
*I don't have much of a sweet tooth except for French Toast, Dutch Baby Pancakes and Blintzes. Perhaps it's the eggs?
*Nature has a lot to teach me. So does science.
*I have the making of a conspiracy theorist/cult follower. KNOWING THAT ABOUT MYSELF CHANGES EVERYTHING. (You name it - you tame it)
*That making, (which includes mistrusting the system, going against the norm, being carried away by fantasies, having a vivid imagination, and being empathetic and even gullible) , is really great for storytelling, and that's primarily what it should be used for. (This. This. This. Note to self...)
*I have trained myself to be 100% bi-lingual. But I wasn't even in an advanced-English-as-a-second-language class in high school. (A moment of bragging, if you will.)
*100 days into quarantine, and I STILL don't know how to ride a bike. And whoever said 'It's just like riding a bike' knows NOTHING! Sigh.
*I have fixed up a pretty decent mini recording booth at my small apartment. And I'm damn good at voice over work. (Yes, I'm bragging, I know. If you don't believe me, HIRE ME and decide for yourself ;) )
*I have met a lot of my anger recently. It shows up roaring when issues of injustice come up in the world, but I have to be better at putting it into action rather than into suffering. (In other words: I'm learning to use my anger for GOOD!)
*I was never into handshakes and really glad they're gone. I do miss hugs though. (But NOT the awkward moment before.)
*If I have to wear a mask outside every day for the rest of my life TO GREATLY REDUCE HEALTH RISK to me or others, I'd be more than happy to do so. It's a no brainer, actually. (Etsy has some dope handmade masks)
*I am a lucky, lucky, LUCKY human with some amazing people in my life. Really, just pinch me already. How did I get so lucky!?? I won the jackpot. For real. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

In April 2020, while experiencing her first ever global pandemic, Tamar Pelzig pledged to write something every day, even if it's only a word, so she welcomed to the world a daily blog to keep her creative writing wheels rolling.
