My 5 Latest Graphic Novel Reviews

Hello!

As the temperature soars to 44.2°C (I am not kidding – check the latest news here), I am seriously rethinking my options to relocate. However, with the second wave of coronavirus sweeping the country and vaccinations being rolled out in phases for adults above 40 years old, I miss my university days in Edinburgh. I suppose a lot of people have reached their point of burnout but are still slogging it through the days with some routine (if there is any in the first place).

As vaccines are being distributed across the world and news on new strains have made us all go not again, I wonder how people are coping with the extended lockdown. I am sure many people are just thankful to be spending a lot of time with their families (with an overwhelming amount of work seeping in, of course), taking a vacation for a solo trip has been on my mind since I can last remember. But lockdown woes have made my parents give me a big fat NO for travelling, so I took a sabbatical from writing for a while and got into ruminating about what should I do next.

Learning during Lockdown

¡Hola mi amigos! ¿Cómo estás hoy?

As I finally breathe after my mini victory of ranking first on Amethyst Level in Spanish lessons on Duolingo, I wonder how much has changed since I last wrote a tete-a-tete letter to vent out my feelings of anxiety. But with this “new normal” (I know you are tired of it already), I wonder how others are taking it on with so many changes forced upon us due to the pandemic.
