Two years ago today (26/31 MARCH SOLSC) #sol22

I decided to look back at what my life as like in 2020 at the start of the pandemic.

March 26, 2020 I was in Oregon after driving up to see my parents for an early spring break that got cancelled because I lost my job.

I started doing zoom Zumba which was such a fun community of people and it was my only outlet of exercise and to see that teacher. I often went to her class on Saturday mornings with a friend.

I had no sense of what was going to happen with COVID or my future job. I was just having a much needed break. I knew it was intense after California recommended no one leave the day I crossed the border to Oregon.

It is crazy how much has changed, and yet some stayed the same – I haven’t been to in person Zumba in months due to Omicron, but I haven’t been doing on zoom either. I’ve filled my time with sleeping in or other activities.

I now have two great jobs, and may try to go back to Zumba in person soon.

Below is the original post that inspired me today

    1. March was a fairly fun part of quarantine (if you can call any of it fun) because I went home and did more with my parents. And there was some that was before COVID precautions came into play. But I definitely understand not wanting to relive the full experience again

  1. I was thinking about that today too; I was looking through old pictures and remembering how we thought it was a nice special little break; a few weeks to be home with our family! I never really thought it would just be a few weeks, but I thought we’d be back to normal by May! How wrong we were. And all those Zoom things that seemed so novel and such a powerful way to stay connected back then just seem tedious now!

  2. The phrase “Zoom Zumba” made me chuckle. Of course, the concept might also give me nightmares tonight. Such is double-edged life.

  3. I might have to borrow this idea! I almost never go back to see what I was writing about in the past. I can’t even remember how many years I’ve been doing this slicing challenge! It’s odd to think about two years ago–trying to figure out how to move the rest of the semester online or async, joining a million Zoom classes and webinars because I wasn’t burned out on Zoom, staying busy online to distract myself from anxiety.
