IWSG Question –– The IWSG’s focus is on our writers. Each month, from all over the globe, we are a united group sharing our insecurities, our troubles, and our pain. So, in this time when our world is in crisis with the covid-19 pandemic, our optional question this month is: how are things in your world?

Unsurprisingly, covid-19 has brought a mixture of feelings to my world. I'm fearful of my parents getting sick, specifically my dad who already faces medical issues. And then I had a friend who I got into a major ultimatum fight with that has broken me. I'm worried about my job and whether or not I will have one at the end of all of this.

But there has been good too. – I had the incentive to put up 3 boxes of books that had been sitting for years. I'm working on framing and mating pictures I've collected over the past 8 years of travel. I'm cleaning intensely. I'm organizing. Wine with lunch every day isn't the worst.The lack of paper products on the market has us reaching for kitchen towels or cloth napkins instead of paper napkins or towels. And while I haven't actually booked anything, lower-priced flights aren't the worst (aside from my inability to go anywhere).

I did manage to get caught up with life and forget to write today's post though! So there's that.

Your Turn

How are things going in your world? Are you experience sadness, fear, and worry given the world's current situation? Or have you been able to make positive changes to your life?
