Hurry Sickness

“What is ‘hurry sickness’,” I wondered, eyeing the title of a podcast episode with deep suspicion. As if we need another sickness to ravage the earth when we are so close to being done with covid-19! symptoms: irritability (see how you react around those closest to you); hypersensitivity (a minor comment could throw off yourContinue reading “Hurry Sickness”

Taking on New Work + Long Distance Dates | Life Update

I had an alarm set for 7 am and woke up even earlier than that out of excitement. It was my first day of school, sort of. I was going to be attending 1st grade for a little boy that I was shadowing. My lunch was pre-packed, my outfit was pre-picked, and one 4-minute driveContinue reading “Taking on New Work + Long Distance Dates | Life Update”
