The Sisterhood of Sarah Connor

Sometime back in the depths of quarantine, after a couple months of bread baking, stagnancy and potentially having COVID it dawned on me that we might not be getting back to “normal” anytime soon.

My clothes weren’t fitting, I hated my body and my skin looked chalky. These are the warning signs that I’m slipping into depression and quarantine fatness. I knew I needed to take charge of my diet and my exercise before the gyms opened because if I held my breath for that to happen, I’d be 400 lbs.

It started with my biological sisters. We called it “Something is Better Than Nothing” and we would get together for zoom workouts where we would share a YouTube video and all follow along. But one by one (I have three sisters) everyone stopped joining the workouts and decided to do their own thing.

Wanting to continue the workouts—I reached out to the community we have here at Phetasy to see if anyone had any interest. In a hat tip to preparing for the apocalypse, I ...

Hello new followers, I hope I don’t disappoint you. I want this place to feel like home, where we can escape the Thunderdome and process the world. Where we can post dog pics and recipes and book recommendations. Where we support each other as we get sober, lose weight, embark on new business opportunities, creative endeavors, relationships and travels. I want this to be your oasis of sanity and laughter in an increasingly mad world. A creative outlet where you can share your spirit with us.

I am a member of a neighborhood Buy Nothing group on Facebook. A woman reached out asking if anyone had an aloe plant they could spare. She posted a photo of herself and explained she was going through chemotherapy for breast cancer, and heard that aloe would help for radiation treatments. Not only did dozens of people offer her aloe, but even more offered to go on walks with her, cook her meals, and do any errands she needed. I delivered her reusable gel ice packs to help with the burns.

Yesterday on the subway, a man was begging for money. Another man gave him a $20, said he had been homeless at one point, and that it is possible to turn things around.

There is goodness out there. There is goodness in here.
Sending y'all lots of love and peace. I hope you're finding kindness and warmth wherever you are. 💖

Whatever the verdict is, I’m prayin’ for the whole Pham in the states! I hope y’all stay safe and away from crazed rioters❤️
