  1. Try prolonging this for FIVE DAYS. FIVE DAYS I’ve been trapped in this apartment. I’ve read 3 books, cleaned my ENTIRE APARTMENT (which includes steam cleaning the carpets). I’ve baked cinnamon rolls, pies, cookies, and chili. I’ve walked to Kroger several times JUST to see other humans.

    And guess what the best part is. THERE’S MORE BAD WEATHER COMING IN TONIGHT AND I DO NOT HAVE ANY MORE DIET COKE. THERE IS NO END IN SIGHT!
