COVID-19 thoughts, rambles, reflections, random post. <3

Good morning/afternoon/evening/night –

Hello friends! 😏

God bless you😘; whatever the situation you are in, we are all in this together. *Drum in high school musical famous lyrics..”* Β We are a team; we can get through this. Only if we sincerely work together. There is no “I” in team.Β  😘😘

covid-19, corona, rona, ron, con πŸ€”etc (*pull out the memes, c’mon lads!* –without being branded as *”insensitive”*) hit us, us, me and you. Whether covid-19 affected your finances, work life, social life, gym life, overall schedule, mental health, sex life, just rememeber the hard truth: deaths/ poor souls dying from covid-19.πŸ˜” I don’t want to sound ‘preachy’, (I don’t want to patronise people at all, it’s not in my nature), but the only way to end this sooner is to work together, stay at home (unless the obvious: ie fooooood, oooone form of exercise (doing it at home is preferably ;)etc), clean up, stay clean and do not be selfish. πŸ˜‰

I have my own extreme views, I highlight ‘extreme’ to make it sound ‘cool’, but ‘extreme views‘ are down to facts. Facts, facts, facts, I don’t care about the he/she said bulldogcatcraaap. You can’t argue with facts. I understand ‘facts’ in the news can be and have mostly been heavily manipulated. But facts are facts. The UK -extremely shamefully slowowow as a snail (fact) on purpose (opinion but feel free to argue back), for financial gain. ‘They’ are πŸ’©.

β€œWhere were the system errors that led us to have probably the highest death rates in Europe?” Anthony Costello, professor of International Child Health and Director of the UCL Institute for Global Health, asked at the Health and Social Care Committee. πŸ’©πŸ’©πŸ’© got real. Yas Costelllllooo!

The future ‘plan/s’ to cut everyones pay clearly demonstrates that! Consequently, the death percentage in UK is unsprisingly high in comparsion to other countries.. Beyond frustrating constantly asking myself, “Why is the UK government so incompetent”.. I never say that. πŸ˜‰ *I thought the pubs were closed..*Β  πŸ˜‰

A rather quick rant, if you want the whole shabanggg, DM me πŸ™‚ πŸ‘©β€πŸŽ€

Anywayss, how are you? No, really, how are you?Β If you need someone to rant to, talk about your day, ,anything, not anything, (don’t give two hoots about your foot festish,πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈ πŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈ my feet aint interested boo) but.. y’ know what I mean.. then feel free to email me: lovesxtine@gmail.com < only email for blog purposes.Β Β 

I’m oooookay,πŸ’ƒ πŸ•Ί I’m gooooood.. I miss working. πŸ‘” πŸ‘—Β  I love what I do, forever and million grateful! It’s not picture perfect, some ridiciouly early on film/studio set times 5:30/6am/7 (up 4am), long (very short/ non existent breaks) 13 hours promotional event days, sometimes being away from home for a week (out of home radius event campaign), dealing with self-entitled people, etc.. but with cons, comes THE pros 🀘 πŸ‘Œ: Β I do love events, being in a studio, being creative for my own digitial content and for others.. I miss my crazy “carefree” schedule, it can be planned or unplanned; I can (be my own boss) (within reasons and sometimes) quickly fill in a gap to see a friend during my break on set.. I can work with my friends on a fun Calvin Klien promotional job and recieve a tonne of freebies. I can manage an event for two weeks, working alongside some creative minds and meeting new likemided people with an unsatiable mindset which lead to other incredible work. πŸ„πŸ»β€β™€οΈ Doing what you love in life and being paid for it, is powerful. Mannn I miss it! πŸ‘€

“God, goals, growing and always glowing”- XTINELOVES.

Moreover, to have a looot of “free time” , (for once in 4 years since I graduated from University- ), you’re ‘kinda forced’ to reflect. Reflect. Reflect. Reflect. On future bigger goals, who’s worth having in your life (BYE FELICIA), bucketlists (so many countries I want to explore), future relationship plans (milf?) (1+1=little me), moving to Cananda/US (is UK OH KAY?πŸ™‡πŸ»β€β™€οΈ), buy that sparkly fabuuuuluuss overpriced *paid people to give it 5 star* unicorn gin or na🎯, leap into a second degree πŸŽ“ , I’ve dreamed offff, dye my hairπŸ’‡πŸ»? or become tha fitness modelπŸ˜‚ πŸ€£πŸ˜‚ πŸ€£πŸ˜‚ πŸ€£πŸ˜‚ πŸ€£πŸ˜‚ 🀣.. y’know you think of everything😬… everything. πŸ† πŸ₯‡Β 


What have you reflected on recently? πŸ€“

Or want to reflect on? I do believe God has given us a chance to press reset and think carefully about our future choices.. What do you want out of life (!) He’s rightfully taking us back to basics.. To appreciate the smallest of things: good health, incredible people in your life, NHS workers πŸ€™πŸ½+all key workers, birds singing, the sun shining on the darkest days, food on the table everyday, wifi etc.. There are people out there who have absoutely nothing, fighting for their organs to just work.. Sometimes we sit here complaining (hands up to admit that) about shit that isnt really necessary!!!!! I’ve always appreciated, but now and then we all need to think of reality…….. 🌟

Everyones ‘coping mechanism’ is totally different. Initate a duolingo language competition online religiously, inject ‘to-do lists’ in your week, have a regimented schedule, or do absoutely jack-shittt nothing, etc that’s up to you. There is no ‘wrong’ or ‘right’ during covid-19. I do feel a healthy ‘balance’ ‘should’ be in place, just for physical and mental health reasons.. Butttt don’t feel pressured to do more, if you don’t want to! 🌟 Your mental health comes first; this whole mindset of obscured online ‘who’s doing what’ shouldnt be a competition. Personally, I prefer to be busy and have a regimented schedule (I’ve had some days to do nothing- loved it/sh.. but long-term it’s not for me), doesn’t mean I look down on those who just want to watch netflix everyday.. Why I wake up early/do certain things most people don’t do.. well, I love myself unconditionally, when I look after myself, my thought process, my body, my vibe etc, well, I am able to uplift and help others too! πŸ‘‘

You do YOU booo, πŸ™‚ If you want a blog post on how to implement healthy sustainable habits, let me knooooo… kk? πŸ’‹πŸ€›

Anyways, (I know) this was a pretty lenghtly, random post, just random thoughts, did I mention randommmm.. πŸ˜›

Look after yourself friends <3 🌈

    Liked your train of thought about the lockdown. I have been lock down here for 3 months now I see things how they are changing I believe some change are actually good. My coping mechanism is to read lots of books and do some journaling, it helps to get my mind of the situation also playing chess with the kids is great. We also decided to become more self sufficient so we are enlarging our garden and building a chicken coupe.

    First of all, those are some fantastic photos. I always love black and white photos with good lighting. Onto the coronavirus situation. I am one of the few people that has actually really benefited from it. More and more people are at home learning how to bake and cook, so I have had a huge amount of traffic going to my YouTube cooking videos and to my food blog. So consider myself extremely blessed and lucky. With that said, I can’t wait for the world to get back to normal, whatever that “new” normal will be.

    Hey beautiful! Nice insights. If we look on the positive side of this tragedy, we are given the chance to do the things we never make time on doing such as spending time with loved ones, and by spending time not just being physically with them but be actually connected with them.

    What a spontaneous post! Love it. Let’s all try to remain optimistic and have empathy for those in need or supporting a loss. I believe in everyone as a whole.

    It’s ok to be not ok at this time. We all need emotional and mental health support. We all have different coping up styles.
