March 2020 – Lockdown #1

This is a draft from March 29, 2020 that I never got around to posting. It felt so good to be with my parents and have a backyard for Lu (for my dog). I came back to Seattle near the end of April. I was ready to get back to my apartment, but leaving was tough. I hiked a lot. I drank a lot of Topa Topa beer. Menudo Sundays. We’re coming up on a year in a pandemic and things still feel the same politically. Blessings that people in Seattle wear masks.

Welcome Back!

Table E31 in a pandemic @ Optimism Brewery.

Welcome back, Jessie! I’m so sorry blog. I have neglected you and wasted time on other sites that shall not be named when I could have used my energy and creativity on a site that you know I pay to retain, oof. No judgment though, we are in a pandemic and one must be kind to themselves.

I am currently sitting in Optimism Brewery. Table E31 to be specific. My reservation was for 6:30 p.m. for a party of one (dogs don’t count). I am embarrassed to admit that Optimism’s online beer-ordering system required three more clicks than I was prepared to see through. I sat for a good 15 minutes before realizing I played myself and gave it another go and ordered a Hazy IPA.

It’s 7:31 p.m. I am escaping the heat, a whopping 75 degrees, by using Optimism’s cool concrete floors and fan. This blog, A Little Bit of J, now has a new theme. I wrote some content, yay! You know, a change of scenery makes all the difference.

That’s all I have in my tonight, folks. I’m gonna enjoy another round then walk home with Luna (my big-headed pitbull) and get ready for another day in Trump’s America, oye!
