How the Pandemic Has Changed Me And My City

There is nudity everywhere. Weird way to start a blog post, especially as I know I haven’t written as much as I had hoped to over the last few months. Let me tell you what inspired this post. Last Saturday, I crossed the street and walked three blocks south and made a quick left and entered my nail salon. My hands were sanitized, my temperature … Continue reading How the Pandemic Has Changed Me And My City

166 Days Into Quarantine, I Finally Got a COVID Test

Over the last few months, I’ve started a lot of posts, and yet none of them felt quite right. Today, I really felt inspired to catch you all up on my life. As the title says, the most exciting (??) thing that has happened to me in a while was my COVID test this morning. In NYC, we still can get results very quickly (unlike … Continue reading 166 Days Into Quarantine, I Finally Got a COVID Test

Blackout Tuesday and The Importance of Continuing Education And Advocacy

On social media today, there is a movement where one posts a picture of a black square. This square is supposed to represent self muting, to give space to people who are trying to educate on the black lives matters movement. It means taking the time off from posting photos of your cat, or boyfriend, or latest baked goods. The black square is acknowledgement that … Continue reading Blackout Tuesday and The Importance of Continuing Education And Advocacy

Peaceful Protests And The Death of George Floyd

Another topic I never thought I would be writing about, but how could I not address what’s happening in NYC, Minneapolis, LA, and other cities around the country and the world. First, let me acknowledge the privilege I have to even be experiencing this and writing this. I never knew and probably never will know the fear African American people face when they go out. … Continue reading Peaceful Protests And The Death of George Floyd

We got An Antibody Test in NYC On Our 41st Day of Quarantine and This is What it Was Like

I recently scrolled past an article on why people who are still going out to get groceries, go for essential exercise, etc. should not be saying they’re in quarantine. But I didn’t read it so I’m still calling this quarantine. Actually at first, I think I did know the difference between social distancing, quarantine, and self isolation, but 42 days into whatever this shit is, … Continue reading We got An Antibody Test in NYC On Our 41st Day of Quarantine and This is What it Was Like

My Review of “Too Hot To Handle” Because Apparently I Review TV Shows Now

Have I been watching too much TV? Maybe. As I’ve said before, Dave and I are working solid days. 9-5 for myself, and 6 AM-midnight for him. Ok, I exaggerate. But genuinely (sorry to embarrass you babe) but one of the things that really attracts me to him is his work ethic. He’s probably rolling his eyes if he’s even reading this, which he’s not … Continue reading My Review of “Too Hot To Handle” Because Apparently I Review TV Shows Now

Happy friday! A brief update in month 2 of quarantine

Now that I have started working remotely, and have actually been getting work to do, the days (of the week) are somewhat easier to keep track of. Today is our 34th day in isolation in NYC (I had to mark the days on the calendar for my sanity). What has surprised me the most is how fast the days go. The weekend goes slower, which … Continue reading Happy friday! A brief update in month 2 of quarantine

Hey There All You Cool Cats and Kittens

Quarantine day??? Just kidding, it’s day 26 for us here in NYC. Things are progressively weirder everyday. The good news from NYC (even though I am trying to avoid the news lately) is it seems that even though the rate of death is increasing, the rate of hospitalization is decreasing. Which hopefully means social distancing is working. Obviously, even if it is working, I know … Continue reading Hey There All You Cool Cats and Kittens
