Isn’t that a depressing title? I was not a fan of the quarantine. It was all too easy to become a pile of media-consuming mush during this “unprecedented” and “uncertain” time. Ya, ya. Anyway, I feel very strongly about not letting circumstances disrupt your wellbeing, which for me is heavily reliant on activity and Jesus. … Continue reading 5 Things I Did During Quarantine
