I Started Going Out Again (Amidst the Pandemic)

I have to say that I’m one of those very few pandemic extremists and snobs. I have been very strict with myself and my family since the COVID-19 pandemic hit my city. And it’s no surprise because I’m living with three medical frontliners, but despite the three of them being doctors, I’m the most dictatorial. However, in December, I started […]
