Must Love Dogs
I do not know how to start this article... I have so many things on my mind about this topic and I just cannot fathom the thought of everything that is happening. It is not something that is just happening now, it has been happening for a long time. What is the difference?... Well, social media. Thanks to social media we are now aware of what is going on around us, good or bad, this does not mean that the thing we are seeing now just started happening. The difference is that we can see it now.
Well this has been an experience unlike anything that we have experienced before... Quarantine life is not what we expected. There is many people that want to leave their houses, people that are in need of some "normal" back in to their lives, but what will normal look like after quarantine?
...Have you heard about the new virus that has been going around? OF COURSE you have!! The media has made it a priority to disperse the news about the Coronavirus, now called COVID 19, but unlike the H1N1 or the Ebola virus that have come and gone... this time they are making it to be a lot more aggressive than it is. It is starting to be called a pandemic.
Is Love Blind?
Have you taken a dive at the new Netflix show called "Love is Blind"??? Well I did... It was one of those nights were I couldn't decide what to watch and just wanted to binge something new. Don't get me wrong, I will have FRIENDS on the background all day, everyday (yes, FRIENDS is still on Netflix in Canada) but I was not feeling it at that moment.
When you are taking driving lessons everyone tells you to watch were you are going and to SHOULDER CHECK. I live in Canada, here everyone knows that once snow hits the pavement everyone will suddenly 'forget' what to do, where the lanes are, and what that magical blinker does. No joke, this happens.
A Whole New Roach
So, I have already mentioned that I work for a hotel in my first published story, "Work Related Stress". Having said that, if you have already read it then you know I am not in the most comfortable position.
When you hear about people adopting pets you start thinking about shelters and how much better the life of the animal will be now that it has a home, but most people don't actually think about adopting a pet. Most people think about going through breeders, which I am not putting down as it is another way of getting a beautiful animal in to your life but going through a breeder is so expensive! Yes, you get the breed you were looking for and there is the anticipation of choosing your animal and waiting until they are able to come home but there are many other animals that do not have a home and are being put down due to over crowding shelters.
What happens when you look at the map?... you start realizing all the places you haven't been to, all the places you haven't seen, all the people you haven't met, all the pictures you haven't taken. Well that is exactly what I think anyways... Every time I take a look at a map or a globe my mind starts to wonder, it wonders what i would do in each place I set my eyes on, what kind of food they would have, what do their streets smell like??
