Everyone seems to have realized or learned a lot of things during quarantine season so for the “unpopular opinion” here are the things that I forgot while in quarantine. But before we head on to the list, let me greet you first. Hey, what’s up readers, I’m back again Jan Paul (J.P.D.T.) bringing another non-sense content. (Still in development lol give some suggestions) Hope you are doing fine while in quarantine, stay at home, stay safe, and I hope you enjoy this.
I forgot how to sleep. My sleep pattern is a little messed up right now. Before quarantine heppend, I am already asleep before the clock hits 10pm and I would always wake up at around 4:am. But after several days of quarantine, night seems to be my noon time and my day becomes my night time. This is a little frustrating because no matter what I do, I just can’t fall asleep. I know a lot of you can relate to this.
I’m starting to forget the satisfactory feeling of lying in bed after a long day. The relaxation that the bed provides after a long and tiresome day at duty or at school is one of the things that I miss the most. I don’t miss being tired, just the relaxation of lying in bed is what I really want. The blanket hugging you and taking away you exhaustion is one of the best feelings in the world.
I’ve completely forgotten what it feels to be stressed out. Yes, there are school works that I need to do and submit in time, but they aren’t source of stress for me. They actually entertained me during this quarantine and who would have thought that a pandemic would make you enjoy things that you always hated doing? I forgot what it feels to be preoccupied. Just like stress, being preoccupied is one of the things that completely vanished. Like all of a sudden I have free time for everything. I can now finish the Netflix series that I’ve started long ago, I can finally make this blog active, and I can finally catch up with life. This is very different from before where I can’t even find time to eat, relax, and just enjoy life. With the huge amount of time that I have today, it is harder to find activity to spend those than to find one.
I forgot which one is the real world and the virtual world. Being in front of the phone every hour of the day, from sunrise to sunset, it becomes easy to forget that there is still a world out there. Although the virtual world becomes more livable, smarter, and slowly becoming the paradise or the utopia that we’ve been dreaming of since the beginning of our existence, it is sill not real. This reminds of Ernest Cline’s novel Ready Player One that I read in 2018 where the virtual world and the real world seem to be reversed in a lot of ways.
I forgot all about the toxic people. With this social distancing, it feels good to be away from all the toxic people that I had to deal with in school. Those are the type of people that doesn’t give a F*kc about anything except their self-gratification, self-happiness, self-pleasure, and basically any word that you can associate with self. That’s how I describe them and that’s my definition of toxic people.
I’ve completely forgotten what fast food tastes like. While in quarantine, I was able to eat real food like I’m in a fine dinning restaurant every day. Fast foods are good, but they aren’t healthy and the taste is very much the same. During this quarantine, every day the food is different and it is prepared at home which makes a lot of difference.
I forgot what it feels to wake up at the sound of the alarm clock. Without any a job, school, or any responsibility that needs to be taken care off early in the morning, alarm clock is now rendered useless. Almost non-existent, unless you don’t wanna mess up your sleeping pattern like I did.
I forgot what pollution smells. The case might be different to people in the city but here in the province, the only place to breath car smoke is the road itself. And away from all that for months is like breathing life, like every breath you take is another year added to your life.
I’m starting to forget what ocean wave feels. It has been a year since I’ve been to a beach and with the summer near its end. It seems like I will have to wait for another year to feel it again.
Life is so complicated before. Now we are back to basic, back to survival world, living the life that has been given and away from all our superficial problems.These are my words
