In March 2020 I was 26 years old living in New Hampshire, only had one dog, and a completely different job. Now I’m 28 (almost 29) back in New Jersey with 2 dogs, engaged, and 2 jobs past that job in 2020.
I don’t think I’ll stop talking about COVID any time soon. It has changed parts of me, changed my life, and even now as it’s becoming less of a daily focus in life, it still matters.
I can’t imagine how it just be for people who were in even more integral stages of life than I was. High school seniors or college freshman. Missing proms and graduations or even those who have had to reschedule their weddings 3-4 times.
I don’t think we’ll ever stop talking about, even if it’s depressing and overdone. It has changed SO MUCH of how daily life is and I think about it almost every day.
