Isolated Life Days 76-94: Quarantine Cooking – Egg Bread

It has would have been 81 days since I stepped outside the house. That streak has been broken, however, as I went out on a walk around the neighbourhood last Sunday with my parents. One outing per every three months should be sufficient to get enough Vitamin D in my life, right?


Note that Isolated Life Days 76-94 refer to the period of June 1st to 19th, respectively.

Isolated Life Days 19-30: Friends…or Enemies?

The days are all blending together. It’s hard to tell one from the next. Weekday, weekend, holiday, is there even any difference anymore?

Isolated Life Days 14-18: How Are People Still So Busy?

Isolated Life Days 14-18 refer to March 31st-April 4th.

There has been very little to report.

Working from home is pretty much the same.

Team workouts are going well, though I’m hard put trying to be creative and find ideas to keep things interesting. I usually have a two-part workout, where the first part consists of a normal circuit and the second part is a bonus add-on where I try to think of different things to do. They are always surprises.

My team doesn’t like surprises.

Isolated Life Days 8-10: Goodbye, Adrian

Hey now, I’m catching up with my posts! Sort of. I have not been this active in posting for years.

I’ve also started running out of titles for each of the days. Plus, in this case, one single event was significant enough to encapsulate multiple days. Note that Isolated Life Days 8-10 refer to March 25th, 26th, and 27, respectively.


^The above is a screenshot taken from an email written by Ben, but from all of us.

Isolated Life Days 5-7: The Competition Starts Now, Preparing for the Worst, and Out of the Frying Pan and Into the Fire

The struggles of trying to keep a daily diary of Isolated Life while being a week behind. Trying to stay relevant with current events while also going back in time to report on what happened a few days ago. Is this what reality TV is like?

Note that Days 5-7 refer to March 22nd, March 23rd, and March 24th, respectively.

Isolated Life Day 4: I Should Have Risked My Life Today Instead

Eggs were on sale at Shoppers Drug Mart and I am running out. Ugh.

Should’ve combined grocery trips to buy bread from Food Basics ($1.88!) and eggs from Shoppers Drug Mart ($1.99! But only during the weekend). But alas, I did not have such foresight and had to go without eggs, as I had made the decision to not leave my apartment again.


P.S. Day 4 refers to March 21st.

P.P.S. I could have combined this day with Day 5 but decided not to for…reasons.
