Checking in — The last 6 weeks have been extremely difficult both mentally & emotionally. The prior six months had been a huge transition period for me - processing grad school, settling into my new apartment, securing work, pursuing my artistry, getting adjusted to new routines & transportation...to name a few! I was finally starting to feel settled when everything changed. I lost three different jobs and five acting gigs that were either ongoing or upcoming. I was also in the process of becoming a permanent employee for one job I loved dearly. While I don’t want to harp on the negative & I’m aware countless others are in same situations or worse, I’m just checking in to say that it’s been tough, but I’m doing a lot better now. I’m grateful to have landed a temp job as an essential worker portioning, bagging and shipping food out during this time. I’m finding little moments each day where I can take in the beauty of the world amongst all the chaos. I’m just trying to take each new day as it comes. I haven’t had a lot of energy lately, but I know it will come back. I’m trying to give into slowing down for a bit from the fast-paced life I love to live. All that to say, I’m reminded that somehow, someday, everything will be OK. #EWBOK
