Right now I'm dealing with the ever-looming grey cloud that is unemployment. I've been unemployed since April and I've been applying to every job I come across that fits my…

COVID-19 is killing me.
It killed my job when I had to be let go due to not being “essential” enough to warrant staying on the payroll once shit hit the fan.
It killed my life when I was stuck inside all day and night to the point where I don’t know what to do.
It killed my sanity and mental health as my depression spirals into a new dark place I haven’t been in years because I can’t do anything.
It killed my motivation and desire to do anything.
COVID-19 is killing me.
Brain fog really is a pain in my ass. It’s a symptom of the hypothyroidism I have, and it usually pops up at times in my life where it’s the worst time to not be able to think clearly.
Like, right now. The world is in a bit of a panic and most people are working remotely. I was one of those people up until mid-April when I was let go. I didn’t really like working from home before and I definitely don’t like it now.
So what does this have to do with brain fog?
With the world kind of turning on its head, I’ve become a statistic of one who lost their job. Without things to do, my brain and mind wander. Right now it feels like a toddler with nothing to do. I want to do things, I want to have work to do! I tend to work better once I get going, and the easiest way to get going is if emails come in.
So right now I’m having a big brain fog moment. I can even feel it, like I have a cloud surrounding my head. It also doesn’t help that it’s smack in the beginning of allergy season. Except it’s currently snowing outside. Nothing makes sense anymore.
Sometimes you might just find yourself in love with someone that isn’t right for you. Or maybe the time is wrong.
It’s going to hurt. You’re going to be crushed. And you’re definitely going to try to lie to yourself. But sometimes you just have to let people go.
I hate to let you go, but I have to for my own sanity
Quarantine has been one hell of a journey for me. In the start of it I lost my job, and I’ve been trying to deal with keeping myself occupied while also keeping my blog going. I’m still looking for a job, but in the mean time I have online t-shirts for sale as well as an etsy shop for my first ecourse with workbook. And not to forget my very first ebook that you can order off Amazon.
So I’ve been keeping myself busy but my depression has still reared its ugly head and made me feel like I’m not being productive enough. So, I’m very much looking for things to do once we’re allowed to go places again. I’m sure all of you are as well.
Not long before this whole pandemic changed the world, a friend recommended me a game called Stardew Valley. It’s a cute little game where you simulate owning and running a farm. It’s actually more fun than it sounds. You get to plant a variety of different crops, you can go mining in the local mine for resources to build things you need. You can purchase animals for added animal products… There’s a lot you can do in this little farm simulator.
But ever since I was laid off, Stardew has been one of the main things keeping me going. I wrote about how my depression may have saved me from the virus but not the pandemic. If that’s true, then Stardew Valley saved me from the pandemic.
Little Miss Short Stuff started out over 2 years ago. I’ve learned a lot from blogging and I wanted to share with you my favorite things I’ve come across.
Blogging is a huge world and there isn’t always one way to blog. What works for one blogger might not work for another. There are so many variables and I’m by no means an expert in the blogging field. I personally think I could be doing so much more for my blog but I have the procrastination bug.
I hope the things I talk about can be helpful for you!
I know I’ve written a lot about this kind of subject lately. It happens that I’ve been going through some things that have sparked these posts. I’m basically cataloging my life in blog posts for you to read and hopefully help you out in your own lives. Don’t be me. You need to let go of whatever it is you’re holding on to.
I was holding on to a person and a situation for a long time. Years, actually. I wanted nothing more than for things to go back to the way they were in the beginning. But that’s not how life works.
More often than not we’re holding onto something. Whether that be a person, a memory, a fantasy of “what if’s”, holding onto that can be detrimental to our health.
You need to let go of what you’ve been holding onto. Believe me, it’s worth it.
