Just me, a fun introspective look at other topics more rooted in everyday life. Of-course, the house style of looking into what is happening in the world today but bringing no insights here, just personal rambling.
Today, the headline topics across my week have all but extinguished all my hope of a return to normalcy. It is crazy to think how things have changed, how we even have changed.
I mentioned this to a friend recently but she thinks I am imagining things. For her, life returns back to its unwelcome pace and brisk workplace encounters make a come-back.

I am finding that freaking out but not completely is a sure sign to getting there, wherever there is. Anyways here is my list on how I’m coping including countless calls to my wedding vendors who are at this point tired of me;

Destroy, NO, burn every one of your TIME CONSUMING apps
(OKAY THAT LAST ONE IS JUST SELF-DESTRUCTIVE, IGNORE THAT)
