New Year 2022.

New Year 2022.

We are going into year 2 of the covid19 pandemic. So many people have passed on because of this virus. Hopefully, in the next year and a half, we will be over this virus.
What, if anything, has this pandemic taught you? What, if anything, would you have done differently during this pandemic? What, if anything, do you plan on doing differently this year than the last 2 years?

Most importantly, I have learned to accept the fact that many people are not willing to make the effort to care for their communities and those who are most in need. This pandemic has highlighted socioeconomic inequalities and racial bias that has long plagued our country. The response has been very disheartening and the number of people unwilling to understand basic science has been disappointing. I am making sure that I do my part in protecting others and being there for those who need me. We are responsible for one another. it is an important part of being human, compassionate and leaving a viable legacy for those who follow.

Tomorrow (1/3/22) is my 38th year of having HIV (documented). I'm thrilled to still be here alive and relatively well in so many many many ways.

Wash hands often and it’s lovely to reclaim personal space bubbles

Nothing too much is different for me. I still do my best not to be indoors with too many people. Where my mask when needed (even though many on the right thinks that's crazy). Not planning on doing nay concerts anytime soon (and I hate that) but will still attend events that are outdoors. I just keep my distance but want to get back to more living soon.

One other thing…during the millennium so many countries did amazing things to celebrate the turn of the century and the millennium. I rememeber the huge celebrations that happened all over the world and how the US was panicked and we hid because of Y2K. I compared the pandemic to Y2K, was I going to be one of those that just hid and staid scared inside? No I refused to do the same thing. I’m proud to have been the first school in our district to receive kids on our campus, to support our families with food, computers and hotspots and I’m proud of all the amazing sights I’ve seen locally. Yes the pandemic is scary and yes it showed us many disparities and very ugly things but it has also showed us resilience, beauty, and kindness. I hope that when all is said and done my memories will not be like those of the Y2K scare but rather stories of all the things I did during this time.
