Quarantine and Fitness: Effects of No Exercise

I stopped counting the days since life as we knew it ended.  Since then, everything revolved about “survival” and preventing getting sick.  Many of the things I liked are no longer available and I have to settle for what is.  Unfortunately, this also meant stoppage of one of the longest things I’ve been consistently doing in my life—working out.

Apple Chronicles: More of NYC

New York City is one of the most influential, popular, and richest cities in the world. Even if I had more than a week to spend, there’s only so much I could cover, especially that I’m just using the public transport and my two feet to explore. Among those that I’d like to highlight are:

Apple Chronicles: The High Line

The last leg of our East Coast tour (outside New York) is further south, Washington, D.C. There’s more to it aside from being the capital of the United States of America, its imposing neoclassical monuments and buildings, and history.

Apple Chronicles: Boston

The next stop on our tour of the East Coast is Boston, the capital of the state of Massachusetts. It is one of the oldest municipalities in the United States and site of various historical events in the country.

We’re now entering the third week of our community quarantine. We’ve only done it for two weeks but it felt like two months already!

Unless you’ve just awoken from a long sleep, you’d know that everyone is wary of the COVID-19 virus, better known as the “Corona virus.”  And while infections outside China is relatively small, everyone everywhere is feeling it’s effects, and it’s taking its toll on public events.

The 2010s: The Decade That Was

The 2010s (2010-2019)—the first full decade that I documented my life. Here’s my attempt to reconcile what happened during the decade that passed.

2019: A Summary

2019 is one of the most challenging years that I’ve had—both from an emotional and financial perspective.  Nonetheless, I’m glad that I survived it in one piece!  Here’s a look back on how my 2019 fared:

11.11

I got so preoccupied with all these 11.11 sale events that I didn’t realize that it’s also this blog’s 11th anniversary!
