The COVID-19 Diaries (April 2020)

Dear Reader, Can you believe that we have muddled through a full calendar year under the oppression of COVID-19? Last month, I looked back on how quickly the coronavirus situation surged in the U.S. by revisiting some of my March 2020 blog posts (more here).

My Little Blue Friend

Dear Reader, It’s a symbolic end of an era for me. My passport is due to expire soon! When I got my passport almost ten years ago, it was for a trip with my high-school group to Spain. As a 17-year old, traveling abroad for 10 days in a chaperoned group without parents was the... Continue Reading →
