My country has the longest and strictest pandemic lock down in the world. And because of prolonged quarantining, I realized that there has been somewhat a number of gains from this experience. People now can enjoy a much cleaner air; folks has established closer relations with other family members; while some has realized how inept and incompetent their elected government officials were.
On a lighter note, my being on a lock down made me a little nifty, thrifty and dreamy at the same time. It has actually controlled my illogical retail therapy. Case in point is my grocery shopping. I no longer buy unnecessary stuff and I have gone basic, essential and primary.
The nearest grocery store from where I live is too short to have a ride and too distant to be considered a walking distance. I chose the latter when I have to go there. And since I have to limit my going out, the quantity of my grocery buying would basically be good for 2 weeks.
Since my buying is of enormous measure and I decided to walk so as to get some sun, a little cardio and pretty good amount of fresh air along the way, I cannot just carry it from the grocery store to my place of stay. I then decided to be a little smarter. I resolved this thru the use of my very well-travelled l.u.g.g.a.g.e!
Yeah, since the pandemic has bunged me up from travelling, I decided my inactive and sedentary luggage to be of good use. My using it actually helped me a little in lessening my silly craving to go for an international travel. I would just have to pretend that my walking to and from the grocery store were like the moments when I would do a flight transfer from one international airport terminal to another strolling along my heavy check-in luggage. Hahaha!
Stay safe everyone!
