Working from home (WFH) definitely is not my fav way to teach, but considering the alternative it is the best we got right now. The schedule is exhausting and I am not cut out for a desk job. Sitting in front of a computer screen all day amps up my anxiety. Anyhow, I decided to change my WFH situation for a week in September by renting a place in Kingston. One of the days, I drove to meet my pal, Elvis for a wee hike. My sis came up in the middle of the week and stayed with me. We got out every single day after I finished working and hit the hiking trails. The outdoors helped my moods immensely. Billie really love it too. We tried all the local ice cream shops. I also got out on my bicycle quite a bit. Kingston is a cool little town with easy access to nature.
Did I mention I bough a motorcycle two years ago? It was during a manic phase, in November of 2018. I bough a used Honda Shadow 750 and then it sat in my older brother's garage for an entire year. Yes, I did have a moto license at the time, but I was in now way ready to ride that beast. Last October, I joined a female identified motorcycle club of badass folx. This entire year I have gotten to ride with amazing women and I even made it up to New Hampshire (with the crew) on my bike. These fierce females ride for charity which means we do a lot of charity and fundraising events.
I really love riding and imagine the day I can travel solo cross country. Florence, my touring bike is far from retired. If Covid hadn't happened I would have ventured our the West Coast for that final slice of the PCH. It will happen one day. Meanwhile, I am getting more saddle time on the moto.
