Studio Update 13

By: Gabriela Yareliz I saw this image this morning, and this is how I felt walking out (more like running out) of the grocery store with my eggs, the other day. I was so tired yesterday, guys, that I woke up tired. Two days ago, I saw myself in a video moving my hands likeContinue reading “Studio Update 13”

Studio Update 12

By: Gabriela Yareliz I didn’t read, today. I felt like that was missing from my day. I read for work and my morning readings, but I didn’t sit down I with a book. I did wipe books down with a Clorox wipe. I did laundry (with many precautions— so I am exhausted), and I cookedContinue reading “Studio Update 12”

Studio Update 11

By: Gabriela Yareliz First, I wanted to say I got the eggs. Yep. I was crazy enough to get the dang eggs, garlic, oat milk (ugh, I know, I am one of those people), and some cookie mix because Lord knows I am sick of seeing everyone baking on Instagram. (I never bake. It’s oneContinue reading “Studio Update 11”

Studio Update 10

By: Gabriela Yareliz Update from yesterday: so, the neighbor made a cute wooden fence during yesterday’s Zoom calls. He didn’t sign it to me through the window; I just got nosy and investigated with my invisible binoculars. (Sometimes, you have to do what you have to do to stay informed. You have totally done it,Continue reading “Studio Update 10”

Studio Update 9

By: Gabriela Yareliz I put on perfume, today. I did the dab-dab on the pulse points after my oatmeal breakfast. Yep. I was ready for Friday. I put on some eyeliner, and smiled into the mirror like I was going somewhere. (You know the smile. The one where you tilt the head slightly and purseContinue reading “Studio Update 9”

Studio Update 8

By: Gabriela Yareliz Do I choose eggs or life? I started off the morning debating whether it was worth risking my livelihood to get eggs at a NYC grocery store. It’s not. You see, I am a vegetarian, and I avoid dairy, but I do eat eggs on occasion. Not often. But sometimes. There areContinue reading “Studio Update 8”

Studio Update 7

By: Gabriela Yareliz Greetings from the studio. I did venture out today, to the basement, to take down my recycling. Yes, crisis is no reason to stop recycling. I was met by an old woman huddled in the corner of the elevator. (There are no stairs to the basement). She was clutching a scarf toContinue reading “Studio Update 7”

Studio Update 6

By: Gabriela Yareliz I have been following the situation in Italy pretty closely. I watch little Italian news clips, and I watch some of my favorite quarantined Italian celebrities’ videos, thanks to Instagram stories and the live feature. Today, while I was listening to a video, I realized that I understood every word in Italian.Continue reading “Studio Update 6”

Studio Update 5

By: Gabriela Yareliz I accidentally said Kenny Chesney died. Nope, it was Kenny Rogers. I always do that. I always accidentally kill the wrong person in my head. I once said Larry King was dead. I seriously believed it. Nope, he is still getting married and getting divorced (has he not heard of dating?). Sigh.Continue reading “Studio Update 5”

Studio Update 4

By: Gabriela Yareliz Today, I read a fiction book. I don’t usually read fiction, but when I saw this one takes place in the South and Reese Witherspoon liked it (it’s her birthday today, after all), I started reading it. So far, it’s good. So, thank the Lord for The Giver of the Stars andContinue reading “Studio Update 4”
