Life is weird. The COVID-19 Pandemic is horrible. But for some reason through it is a silver lining for me, big time. Strange life would hand me healing during this time.
As you all know, I'm chronically ill and very immunocompromised. I have to stay at home all day most days anyway. So, it's nice to feel like my existence is "cool" now. I think I'll start a blog for people about how to not go completely bonkers during excess isolation.
I've been having a really bad year (brain tumor, car failure, etc). I've longed for a term of classes at only eight credits. But unfortunately I am unable to go at that pace because of the way my financial aid works. This next term will be different. I spoke with my financial aid office and they said my scholarship won't be reduced because of the pandemic. And our first month of classes will be remotely delivered. And since my lab works with human participants, we won't be doing much research next term.
As you can see, this sets me up for a much more relaxed schedule next term. I've needed this for so long. I can finally achieve my full form as a hermit. I plan on doing lots of sleeping, art, Netflix, and work on my research.
Now I don't have to worry about when my next major medical steps take place.
I hope you all are hanging in there. 💜
