Bad Timing Is Good Timing

There’s not a day that I’ve woken up in the midst of this global pandemic and not been in complete shock that this is how things are. It blows my mind that this isn’t a dream—that I can’t snap my fingers or open my eyes, and everything will fizzle into nothingness and return to normal. It’s been … Continue reading Bad Timing Is Good Timing

Romanticizing the Past

            As I mentioned in my last post, this time of isolation and staying inside has made many nostalgic feelings arise within me, and, the most pressing feeling of them all has been a yearning for how things used to be.

I am someone who used to say things like, “I’m not confrontational, but I don’t have an issue confronting someone about … Continue reading Confrontational
