|Memories of being at Great Ocean Road in Melbourne, Australia back in 2019 that I cherish especially right now!|
|Poured my heart and soul into making pastries that others will enjoy like these cream cheese brownies!|
Some have gone into depression, and it has greatly affected their mental health. Many have found other outlets just to keep themselves sane. Some have even taken their businesses online, and finding new ways to get themselves more involved on social media. Some have taken a break, and have finally focused on their well being. Whether or not you're learning or earning during this pandemic, know this, whatever you're doing is valid. Just make sure you're keeping yourself sane, and you're wearing facemasks, constantly sanitizing, washing your hands, and avoiding crowds. So now I ask this: What have you done to keep yourself sane during this pandemic?
|Making cakes for clients has shown me how much I missed being in the kitchen, especially since lockdown started.|
|My client was Japanese, and I wanted to show my skills of writing with chocolate with this special occasion!|
|I will forever be thankful for the online dance classes the studio and dance teachers provided for me! So much happiness!|
So one thing I've been doing this whole time during lockdown was focusing on what makes ME happy. What sparks joy in my life within my abilities. Four things are constant in my life, and have always made me very happy, patient, and positive: cook/bake, dance, travel and going out to meet with friends. Since I'm not able to do the last two due to lockdown and the pandemic, I decided to focus my energy on the first two. It's the least I can do for myself to keep me sane during lockdown. Luckily because of internet and wifi, I am still able to keep myself busy and active through online dance classes as well as watching Youtube vids about baking, cooking, and pretty much anything I enjoy or makes me laugh and smile.
|I'm happy I was able to brighten up someone's day with these red velvet cupcakes. I wanted them to experience it!|
|These cookies were definitely the ones that started it all! The cookies that me fall in love with baking!|
|Looking at the moon at night or the sunset in the afternoon made me appreciate the beauty of life!|
|Thankful for my friends who have been helpful, loving and supportive even if just online!|
|Wonderful moments! Chatting with friends online has made me laugh and be full of excitement even late at night at 3am!|
