For personal reasons, I take quarantine way more serious than others.
What 4 months quarantine taught me:
1. Music heals the soul
I dig out cello and Chinese harp from the storage and start playing again. 30 mins of piano and singing every single day. We form a instrumental group so when the world opens again we will meet each other and play regularly. “If the world was ending” singing collaboration with my students and podcast listeners is extremely fun too.
2. Life needs routine
Habit share app with my habit share group is extremely helpful. Balance relaxation with productivity.
3. Who are the important people
Keep your family and friends close. As long as everyone is safe and well, nothing else matters.
4. What you need in life is not as much as you think
I used to look out for new investments or products all the time. Now you realize all you need is food and happy mood.
5. Unexpected opportunities.
I never think quarantine will bring out new adventures. Now with zoom lessons I have students from Dubai, Taiwan and USA. It makes me design new ways of teaching and connect with students in different part of the world.
6. Quarantine doesn’t mean isolation. We have Susie’s monthly zoom book club, fortnight toastmaster club, friends coffee zoom catch up. When you have WiFi, the world is your oyster.
We will start face to face in week 4 term 3 （Maybe. We will see) Zoom kids I will see you from tomorrow. A big air hug and kiss from Susie.
Stay safe and keep well darlings!
