Mental Health Day

Due to the whole pandemic I haven’t been able to travel. I usually take a trip or 2 in a year to keep me sane but coronavirus messed that all up for me. I have been working almost nonstop for about 10 months, including a lot of weekends. A LOT! My brain started telling me that I was doing too much. I was moving at a fast pace and losing touch with my sanity.

For that reason, I went in to work one day last week and stated, “I have some exciting news!” When I was asked what it was I simply replied, “I’m taking tomorrow off for no reason in particular!” I called it a Mental Health Day. It felt good to basically say they had to figure it out without me.

So, on my day off I did absolutely nothing…for the most part. I did have to submit 2 reports but I was able to do it in about an hour. I also had to choose a training course otherwise they were going to choose for me. I didn’t mind the bit of work on my day off because for the remainder of the day I basically slept! It was nice to have a lazy day. 

For a while I was hesitant to take time off just to be at home but it was definitely needed this time around. I enjoyed the laziness so much that I’m already thinking of my next Mental Health Day. Not sure if I’ll stick to staying home or taking a day trip nearby to explore.

Welcome to Savir Blogs

Hey there! I’m Jessica from Newark, NJ. I am a first generation American, born to Salvadoran immigrants in the late 80s. I started “Savir Blogs” on a whim with no sense of direction. I needed something to do since COVID cancelled all of my plans for the rest of the year. As much as I would love to, I knew just eating and sleeping was not the way to go.

This blog is not tailored to a specific topic or aesthetic. It is me “directionless blogging” my shenanigans. The name Savir is a representation of me and I’m looking forward to sharing some of the things that bring me joy. I love sleeping, traveling, photography, spending time with my family, and of course my dog. 

I hope that you join me on this new unknown adventure. I don’t know if anything will make sense but it’s going to be purely me.
