It’s been almost two months since home quarantine started. Here in France, everybody’s going to be let out on 11th May. Not me, though. I’m not planning on going out there yet. I think it’s going to be crazeee!!!
What have people been doing during this time?
For some like myself, I continued to work from home. It was challenging at times because of the additional work of my daughter’s home schooling, and house cleaning, which was usually handled by a hired cleaner.
We’ve obviously been missing out on a lot this year. Half of the year is almost over, and nothing much happened… except maybe set some small (or big) personal improvement goals.
It’s been a year since my friends and I have created this small group that meets once a month to paint in watercolor. Our group meet just mostly consists of following some tutorials on youtube or a book, and then of course, as with all Filipino gatherings, sharing some food over merienda / gouter / snack.
Back in the 80’s and the early 90’s, my siblings and I, along with my kiddie cousins would watch lots of movies during the summer break. One of the few horror movies that made an indelible mark in the psyche was “Village of the Damned”. I had long forgotten the title, actually. I just googled, “horror movie kids with white hair” to find the title and some video clips. I even found out that it was already a remake of the original from 1960. Thanks, Google. Looks even creepier in black and white.
I’m not usually into scary movies. But kids like to be spooked by nature. Aside from the spooks, what made it interesting for me was that it starred Superman, a.k.a.Christopher Reeve. I’d watch anything with Superman in it. Also in the cast was Luke Skywalker. Not a big fan, though. Just shared for a bit of trivia.
