As we enter the third month of quarantine, it’s beginning to feel r-e-a-l. I’ve tried to use this time to be productive, do things that make me feel useful, and work on my own health. I’ve been slowly forming some healthy habits (mental and physical) that I wanted to share with you all today.

I’ve currently been indulging in my new guilty pleasure — Sex and the City. I have always wanted to jump head-first into Carrie Bradshaw’s thrilling New York City sex life, because I’ve always felt like I identify with her in some way (but isn’t that the point?).

He left behind a career, six children, and a wife. He left behind millions of fans (my social media was full of tributes all day). Personally, I… Read More Suicide Isn’t Selfish
