Saehee's Quarantine Routine

Hello readers (You must've been very bored to come across my site). If you don't know who I am, my name is Saehee Jong, also known as Stacey to those who can't pronounce my name or Malebird to my closest friends. I am a fourth-year student at UCSB Zoomiversity, who is practicing self-isolation in an infected Isla Vista.

It's hard to be motivated and productive in times of crisis. This global pandemic has definitely thrown me off my daily rountine and interrupted my flow of rhythm. So, I recorded my schedule the past week to give myself more structure during this time!

Mondays/Wednesdays AKA Productive Days

  1. 5am: Wakeup and think about 2 things I'm grateful for. Hunt for a banana and make lots of coffee to get through the day.
  2. 5:15am: Get started on homework and internship work.
  3. 7:45am: Go on a run!
  4. 8:30am: Come back home and stretch. Then, take a shower.
  5. 9:30am: Get dressed (but NOT in pajamas) and put some makeup on to feel like my normal self.
  6. 10:30am: Continue working on homework/internship assignments, listen in on lectures, etc.
  7. 12:15pm: Lunch and Netflix break!
  8. 1:30pm: Apply to jobs so I won't be homeless and unemployed after graduation.
  9. 3pm: Lay on my bed and scroll through social media.
  10. 4pm: Tinker around on my keyboard and wakeup my housemates with my singing.
  11. 5:30pm: Lysol, clorax, and vacuum my apartment like a mad woman.
  12. 6:15pm: Cook and eat dinner! Lately, I've been making chicken and rice.
  13. 7:30pm: Another Netflix and YouTube break!
  14. 9pm: Stress bake.
  15. 10:30pm: Eat the baked good(s) while scrolling on social media again.
  16. 11:15pm: Wash face, brush teeth, and hit the sack!

Tuesdays/Thursdays AKA Lazy Days

Well there it is folks! I can't tell if this shows how unstable or structured I am, but one thing to note is that I am not strict with this schedule! It's important to treat myself with kindness and forgiveness, especially since I am still grieving about my last college quarter being ROBBED by COVID-19. I hope this gives you more insight about what I've been up to and reminds you that you can still be productive and restful while staying indoors!
