Congratulations! If you you’re reading this, you have made it through another month of a (somewhat worldwide, mostly United States) pandemic. How exciting!
My excitement is actually quite surprising to me, because in my last “It’s the” post I said didn’t know when I would write again due to my lack of excitement. I also didn’t know Taylor Swift was going to release a new album, so there have been surprises all around. Thank you Taylor Swift for quite literally giving me the boost of happiness I needed to write again.
It’s so exciting to be excited. I’ve been able to spend quality time with my family, some friends, the water and my dogs. That’s about 80 percent of what I need in life, so no complaints there. The pandemic is holding on tight to America, and I think I managed to physically go inside two stores the whole month (I know that is a huge privilege on my part, thanks to my parents taking one for the team by visiting the grocery store). The BLM movement is also still strong, mostly through social media. A lot of people are mad at President Trump right now because he doesn’t support mail-in voting, but of course, others are happy about that. Like I said two weeks ago: it’s quite the time to be alive.
I want to part ways with just a friendly reminder in light of everything happening in the world. Be kind to one another, despite your differences. Be kind to yourself, because you’re living through an unprecedented time. Finally, be kind to the earth, because we’ve only got one!
