I stepped outside for the first time since testing positive.
How do I feel? There’s some exhaustion but I don’t know if it’s because I’m sick of looking at the four walls of my apartment. I wanted to walk at the park but it was already dark by the time I got outside. I feel like I could still use more rest and more sleep. But generally, there’s no more cough. There’s a bit of a sniffle but nothing serious. I’ve also stopped or completed my medication.
What’s on my mind? I’m thinking about how to nurture my mental health even further. I was on Day 25 of a 30-day yoga challenge which had to stop when I got that injury to my lower rib area last week. Yoga was helping me carve out a calm space. Speaking of a calm space, my Calm app auto-subscribed to another full year and I should be returning to the daily meditation.
This will be my last entry documenting my experience with Covid. Here are the past few entries:
I’ve moved onto Star Trek: Picard season 2 on things to watch. I wasn’t quite impressed with the first season since it was an adjustment. Star Trek: The Next Generation (TNG) was an episodic series and featured a full cast which was led by Jean-Luc Picard. The appeal of that show was Picard and crew. But in Picard, obviously, the series focuses on him and his character as he’s in old age and coming to terms with the decisions he made in his past.
It’s just not as exhilarating. It’s not fair to put that expectation on a series about the famous captain. But also, you want the kind of episodic that’s exciting. Good thing this is achieved with the phenomenal Strange New Worlds series (launched in 2022), led by Captain Pike and a crew including a very fucking handsome Dr. Spock (like seriously, the show gets +1 star because of that casting).
Also, Lower Decks, which takes place very close to the TNG, Deep Space 9, and Voyager timeline… is refreshing, funny, and well-written.
I’m only watching Picard season 2 because I heard that [spoilers] the old TNG crew will be appearing in the third and final season in 2023. I’m playing catch-up.
DRAG RACE PHILIPPINES WINNER
SPOILER ALERT – SPOILER ALERT – SPOILER ALERT
Anyway, the Drag Race Philippines finale aired this evening and the winner is Precious Paula Nicole. Much-deserved, a well-rounded talented queen with mass appeal… kudos to the entire cast of Drag Race Philippines. From those who landed in the top 4, my choice was Marina Summers. She finished as runner-up during a very epic lip sync battle to Gloc9’s “SIRENA” which is a powerful song for the Filipino LGBTQIA+ community.
Ending Day 7 with a short video about testing positive. I’m on the recovery. Thanks for your well-wishes!
