My Experience With Covid-19

I remember January 1st, 2020. I was living in Vallejo. People were still blowing up leftover fireworks. I listened to the explosions and thought about how everything in life was reduced to repetition. Nothing ever seemed to change. I was bored but ultimately stagnant.  A few weeks later, I first

DIY: Dollar-Store Decor

Observations and Hypotheticals on Being Sick

I was supposed to be going home to Massachusetts this weekend to celebrate my mother’s birthday. Unfortunately, I went from kind of sick to seriously sick right before leaving and couldn’t go. Apparently that is something my husband says ‘˜ happens every time’.  So, now I have been sick on
