Quarantine Thoughts Part Two

The New Normal Or Nah ?

If you didn’t read part one , you can check it out HERE !

So we left off with me having anxiety attacks , on unemployment , and just trying to stay in the house .

BUT as the months went by , I got tired of the same ole routine. So with a little nudge , I stepped out.

Fete’n During The Pandemic



Listen , I was a real good girl . I saw the party flyers on my Instagram and I stayed put. I was home since about April . I didn’t go to my first fete til July 18.

It was time for me to dance this Quarantine 15 off.

You can’t really social distance in a fete but I definitely kept my mask on most times and had my hand sanitizer on me .

I only went to selected events . At some of these events , there were temperature checks and masks given out.

I didn’t realize there were so many backyards in Brooklyn and Queens.


Some events had concrete or fake grass . But the others , whew chile . After a few drinks , I didn’t mind the dirt but my sneakers or sandals looked like my momma nah love me lol.

The fetes with the decor take win ! It made me feel like I was somewhere other than a backyard . Shoutouts to the colored tables , banners , cabanas , backdrops , props , and more.

I feel like if you’re going to charge me money , make me feel like my money going towards quality things .

I can’t stand the porter potty but it was the only option in these backyards . At least have the sink thingamajig outside so I can wash my hands properly. Luckily I had hand sanitizer and wipes in my bag.

After every event , I drank two cups of lemon ginger tea .

I love parties that have good food. Forget the liquor , just give me food.

It felt good to get back to something normal . But I was still cautious .

A Getaway Is Needed

A getaway to Atlantic City wasn’t enough so I decided to go to Cancún , Mexico. I loved it and you can read all about it HERE ! I also went to Puerto Rico .

I recommend a getaway for everyone. When you’re overwhelmed by social media , the news , and changes , it’s good to get a chance to refresh.

Check on your mental status .

Check what’s open and allowing tourists to come in .

Check out my blog post on how you can have a safe & responsible pandemic•ation HERE !

I think I satisfied my travel bug for now . I visited two new places and I think that’s enough . I’m considering a staycation in the city . I also want to focus on my solo birthday trip in February.

Starting A Business

I decided to start my travel apparel business , Smoovee Travel.

I had this idea for about 2 years or so and I just decided to start it now or forever hold my peace.

My line will be filled with apparel , accessories, and more.

I can’t wait to see how it grows and how well I can be an entrepreneur.

I’m thinking about adding to my upcoming YouTube the process along with traveling and daily life.

Black Lives Matter

Growing up as an African American woman , I’ve seen and experienced racism all my life. When all the wrongful deaths happened and protesting began , it became overwhelming and an eye – opener to many .

There’s so much to say on this particular topic however I feel like I need to write a more detailed post .

Election During A Pandemic

I voted . That’s it and that’s all .


I get tested once a month , it’s free and doesn’t take too much time.

Going Back To Work

I honestly don’t want to but I will if if I need to . I feel like I would be more exposed if I worked . I’m thinking of at home job or back to warehouse work .

Final Thoughts

We all handle situations differently . Some days I just really think and wonder how the world has changed in just a few months.

Tell me how you’re feeling or drop a fun meme in my Instagram DMs.
