So It’s Saturday March 28th and i actually have to go to work. Milk is off and has to go shopping later in the morning. I woke up and made this salty mac and cheese and packed a few fruits in my bag. Milk woke up a little while after to assist me in the kitchen. Like i would ever burn down my second home. Anyway i got ready for work quickly and reached in no time. When i arrived everything just looked different. It seemed like more people left with computers to work from home. It was really happening, everyone had to leave not just a selected few. I observed workers coming to pick up their computers and my mind was all over the place. It was done last minute and wasn’t organized properly. I messaged Milk to give her a heads up. I really wanted her to get her computer as early as possible for convenience. I wasn’t sure whether or not to take mine today. My quarantine weekend at her house wasn’t over yet. In addition i had some stuff at her house. Eventually i decided that i had to go home with mine as well and cut our weekend short. The building was getting emptier by the minute and i wasn’t in the mood to come back Monday.
Milk got more info regarding the situation and decided to come pick up her computer. Everything was happening so fast. We couldn’t believe we were going to work from home. We have no idea how long it will remain that way. Transportation was arranged for us and we left the building and said goodbye. I was really happy I worked this Saturday and things went in my favor as well for my girlfriend. This is our first big test in our relationship..Distance. are we ready for it? How is Milk and Coffee going to deal with this. To make things worse in light of the corona virus our government decided to implement curfews. So my plans of visiting Milk on my off days are ruined so to speak but just for now. For the last 7 seven months we’ve been seeing each other every day at work now it’s a different ball game. Our bond got stronger thanks to daily interaction. We don’t live close to each other at all but through WhatsApp we hope stay connected. So her we come April…another challenge awaits.
