I Thought I Found My Purpose, But…

I thought I found my purpose, but then I found out about something that cancels out everything that I’ve been looking forward to and working on for the past nine months. I’m feeling heavy. My life has changed in many ways since my father began fighting cancer, to his eventual death in June of this year. Of course, it was […]

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.
