The COVID-19 Diaries: Intro

Updated: Apr 7, 2020

COVID-19. We're living through something I don't think anyone expected to experience in the 21st century. I know I certainly didn't expect a virus to impact almost every country across the globe, especially with all our technical and medical advancements that weren't available in previous health crises.


Even though the stay-in-place order is relatively new in Florida, I still find myself struggling with being separated from my friends and family. While I'm still able to connect and communicate with them virtually, there's still a void that no amount of virtual communication can fill (not to mention I'm going absolutely stir crazy).


It seems that everyone is looking for something to relate to and connect with during this period of social isolation, so, in an effort to temper my restless spirit and maintain my sanity during quarantine, I've decided to start the COVID-19 Diaries. This series will document my and other people's experiences throughout this pandemic. Hopefully, this will bring a sense of community and connection through the isolation and help those who are struggling with being physically cut off from other people feel a little less alone.


If you'd like to contribute to this series or have a suggestion for a post topic, please send it my way! I look forward to braving this storm together!


Until next time!
