Right before the quarantine started, I got my first ever bonus from work. I was very excited and didn’t know how I wanted to spend it, but I knew that I wanted to spend it on something fun. Initially I was planning on using it towards a trip, but the timing could not have been worse, as suddenly I couldn’t travel anywhere. So instead, I decided to do something that I have wanted to do since I was a little kid. I bought myself the LEGO Millennium Falcon set, which is the largest LEGO set ever made and that I have always dreamed about building. So I bought it, built a blanket fort in my living room, and spent a whole week putting it together, just like I was a kid again. It was such a happy moment that allowed me to reflect on how far I had come in the past few years that I would never have considered doing if I hadn’t been stuck inside for months.
