How to begin.
“Heaven has no taste.”
“And not one single sushi restaurant.”

Is a pandemic a good time to start a blog?
Probably not, but here we are. Those of us privileged enough to be able to #staythefuckhome are hopefully home.
What to do during this time, other than an anxiety driven panic, has been on my mind. I have always defaulted to learning new skills when presented with time at home. With that said, I plan on sharing some of the shenanigans we have been doing.
Full disclaimer, I am extremely prividleged to have a house over my head, food in my fridge, and everything we would need at home. I also work from home by default and while my husband is a medical professional, he works in the children’s hospital and so far has not yet had to help in the adult hospital #flattenthecurve. We are therefore, still being paid, and while I have lost a few of my client contracts, I am still fine.
I hope you are all staying safe and healthy. This pandemic has brought out the best (and worse) in people and I look forward to a time where we can all stand shoulder to shoulder and breathe in the same room.
Also, I miss good sushi (image above found as a stock photo on Canva.com. I wish I had such a good sushi picture, something to think about for the future). Since moving to Northeast Florida almost two years ago, I have been unable to find good Japanese food and have had to rely on my visits to NYC. Which now, naturally, will not be for a while.
Tana and I are going on this journey of a pandemic blog together. You can read her first post here.
