I'm still alone much more than I used to be. I used to meet up with friends at least five times a week. Now, I am barely able to keep in touch with most of them.

I've made more calls than I used to. More texts are being sent. And the blog is here, for those who choose to read it.

But I just wanted to say, I'm seeing people in America under pressure. I'm under pressure. It's immensely stressful, and it's not ending. It's impacting the things we make for each other.

Everyone is struggling. Everyone is hurting. That's okay to acknowledge.
