Hi You, I can't believe it's already nearing August. Being "homebound" for so many months sure does weird things to time. COVID has ruined so many plans, & now we found out that Dad has cancer. I'm so sad that we had to cancel our trip in June. I haven't seen either of my parents since December. COVID has made me miss both my parents and my brother's birthday! I wasn't able to go home for the anniversary of my brother's death. I am so sad about so much. I started grad school this summer. Being out of college for ten years and then going back to school is scary enough, but now because of COVID, everything is online. All my exams, all my lectures, everything. On one hand, I'm saving a lot of time and money but to be honest, I really just miss interacting with other people. I've forgotten what it's like to be normal. I want everyone to be safe, but man this is hard. Love, Me.
