Share Your World – Week of August 9, 2021


Restrictions are being lifted all over the world.  Do you feel it’s safe to go out and mingle in crowds in light of the Pandemic?

Is it daring of me to say I have never felt it’s not safe to go out and mingle in crowds despite there’s a pandemic going on?

On the other hand, safe or not, I still have to head to work once a week (now twice a week) to process mail and check, I still have to be the driver to drive my aunts on the weekends, and I still have to go get groceries and refill the 2 (sometimes 3) 5 gallons water jugs.

Unfortunately, I didn’t get to have the luxury of hiding at home using the excuse of “it’s not safe” because everyone else in my world will just respond, “boohoo, you still have to do it.”

What are some things that are okay to do occasionally,  but definitely not okay to do every day?

  • Eat ice cream
  • Take a nap in the afternoon because it would take me forever to complete my 8-hour workday
  • Work on the garden for hours at a time because I wouldn’t be able to get out of bed in the morning.

Would you relocate for love (romantic or otherwise)?

If I find the right person, sure, why not?

Do you believe in any conspiracy theories (no judgment)?

Yes, I do and I love to watch TV shows (fiction or documentary) and listen to books and podcasts related to conspiracy theories. They are just so interesting and makes my imagination go wild.

    • Oh no! I only heard about the Lambda when I saw it on the news yesterday, still trying to wrap my head around it – another variant. I sometimes don’t think this thing will ever end and maybe one day, the entire globe might end up locking down.

      • I base my thought on The Spanish Flu of 1918-19. It never completely disappeared .In fact, thee common flu that comes in the fall is a genetic version of that. Until people use their heads this won’t go away.

  1. Thank you Yinglan for Sharing Your World! You’re not alone in thinking it always was safe ‘out there’ even with Covid. Two or three other bloggers feel the same. I have to admit that if I were younger and a lot healthier, I might have had the same point of view. I find that the ‘you do you’ (do what you feel most comfortable with) is the best advice around this pandemic. For me and people like me (elderly, disabled, autoimmune compromised, or with chronic diseases), it’s not the same as the average healthy adult. I even get warned by siblings that they feel “it’s too dangerous’ for me to go do things I used to do. And one of my siblings is firmly in your way of thinking, that it never wasn’t safe.

    Whatever side of the equation one is on, it’s clear that there is something going on, and that we don’t understand it or aren’t being told facts about it to properly assess the risk. I feel better for having been vaccinated, but I don’t like not requiring masks and social distancing when I’m out somewhere. It’s a choice and nobody is wrong. Thanks for sharing your viewpoint! That’s very brave.

    I sympathize that your family isn’t more supportive of your concerns, but you deal with the situation very well I think!

    Have a wonderful weekend and enjoy that beautiful garden!

    • I agree, everyone is different. I wish everyone has that mindset of “You do you” instead of making everyone adhere to a set of rules and causing all kinds of chaotic behaviors.
      I was taught (trained) as a child to always obey elders like a mindless robot. I guess I never outgrew that mindset and now as an adult, this mindset is wreaking havoc and causing conflict on not only my emotional health but my mental health. It’s so frustrating sometimes but I try to deal with one thing at a time.
      Have a wonderful weekend.
