So I have been in a bit of a mood lately. And its not been a good one. Its understandable with everything going on. I am not upset with myself for that. I’ve lost interest in doing anything, speaking to people, keeping up with the little bit of school I have left.
Until today when I had a moment of happiness. Forgetting everything that was going on.
As much as its weird to admit this, just having a video call with my doggie, made my day better. And yes you read that right. I videocalled my dog.
This afternoon my uncle messaged me. And he is the type to only message me when he wants something. I didn’t really want to deal with him because I was a mood, but its family and I don’t ignore family. I don’t mind ignoring anyone else, but when it comes to family, I always check the message.
Don’t worry. Nothing bad happened to anyone and he didn’t want a favour. He was just checking up on me. So we went back and forth for a little while, till I asked him if he was home. When he said yes, I told him to go get my dog. That I wanted to videocall my dog.
I have no problem admitting that I am the type of person who will speak to her dog through a phone screen. I am the type of person who will instantly get happy seeing their dog thousands of miles away. Just those 5 minutes seeing my little boy cheered me up and made my day, even though he had no clue what was going on.
Unless you have a pet that you are away from, you have no idea how much you can miss them, especially when your days are just shitty. You have no idea how seeing their face can brighten your day. You miss all the things that they do which annoy you. And the nicknames you give them. And their annoying loud barking at any and everything they see.
Honestly I’m just happy that I was able to see my doggie via a video call. I know it sounds silly when he had no idea what was going on. But it made me smile. It made my day. I might have to get my uncle to do it a bit more often for me, even though it will cost me. Unfortunately, I might have to bribe him [with money] because he and the doggie have a love hate relationship and that’s the only way he will do something like that for me.
I don’t care if you judge me, but I miss my best-est friend in the whole wide world.

My dog makes me happy too! I keep asking my dad to send me photos of her even though he hardly takes photos. My dog lives with my parents several thousands of kilometers away from here. That’s why I got a cat last year to help me deal with depression, and this cat really is lovely too ♥️
As for this mood, I feel it too. Lately I’ve lost interest in things, have been sleeping in late, and am mad for no good reason other than I’m being forced to self-quarantine. Today I tried to get out of the house and most places were closed. I don’t think humans are meant to be hermits days on end like this. It’s just so stuffy staying indoors all day with hardly any human interaction.

Its hard being away from your pets, because they are family. You’re so lucky that you have a cat.
I know its for the best, but it is very hard to stay inside and do nothing
I missed my dog too! I’m probably just lucky enough to go back home before the quarantine. Do whatever makes you happy! even if it means video calling your dog everyday. I think everyone needs to do that especially with the condition we’re all in. I wish you well. 💖

Awwww thanks for saying that. I miss my doggie so much. Unfortunately, my uncle is not always around to video call and my grandparents can’t do it. You’re lucky that you were able to go back home. Even though I am not with my doggie and grandparents, through all this, I am not alone. I am with my mom.
