Hey! How is everyone doing? Things are starting to turn back to normal, though they are calling it ‘the new normal‘ in my country. We’re going to have to keep working from home and keep a meter and a half distance between ourselves. The phrase ‘the new normal’ is a way of saying: just get used to it.
But things are looking up. Schools and libraries are open, as well as dentists and hairdressers.

So what is it you are dreaming of? Places you’re longing to visit, new skills you want to learn or things you want to do… You can write them down in a bucketlist, but you can also make plans to actually do them. Of course, we’ll have to wait for corona to be over, but why wait longer than that? It’s time to follow your dreams, instead of delaying them.
