Shaquille O'Neal's Ex Shaunie Contemplates What Room to Sit in Amid Quarantine

Shaunie O'Neal, the ex-wife of former basketball star Shaquille O'Neal, shared a part of her quarantine experience with her fans on Instagram and posted a new selfie. 

Being at home amid the quarantine necessitated by the coronavirus pandemic can feel so boring at times, with one repeating activities, or getting tired of seeing the same scenery every time. 

That is the bane of many people who are in isolation as part of the preventive measures to curb the spread of the deadly virus, while they hope for a cure to the disease, to enable them to go out freely.

Shaquille O'Neal's ex-wife, Shaunie, shared a selfie of herself while at home, giving her fans a peek into her quarantine life. 

The selfie showed the 45-year-old television personality posed in a way that looked as though she was tired with the lockdown experience. If her face didn't make it clear enough, her caption did, with Shaunie writing

"The other day in the living room, thinking about what room I'm gonna sit in next [emoji] #quarantinelife."

Today isn’t important to me just because it’s “my birthday.” It’s important for reasons deeper than the obvious. It’s significant because I’m at a place where the emotional drama of growing is behind me, and the physical perils of aging are still yet to come. In these years of quiet, I have learned to be both grateful and fearful. I can say that I’m sort of an expert on more things than I care to be, and I realize that most of my life has been of my own making. Yes, I have been dealt cards that are both good and bad, but I am the one who has plays them. With that realization comes a feeling of great responsibility. I have come to terms with how many moments, days, months have been squandered. And now I vow to do better; because now I know what I don’t want and not just what I do want. #45 #11/27 #itsmybirthday
