One Of The Biggest Lessons I Have Learned During The Pandemic

Never be afraid of change! Wow, what a year this has been. With the world constantly spinning around us, especially this past year when it seemed like we couldn’t catch a break, it is crucial to make sure that we are grounded.

This past year has been unique for many different reasons. With the world slowly opening up, I found myself reflecting upon what no one tells you about moving back home.  As a twenty year old, I have always looked to my parents for guidance in whatever endeavors I am embarking upon. With being away for a year and then coming back, our relationship dynamic has shifted for the better. When coming home, my parents initially parented me, which is understandable given the world circumstances we were facing. However, the longer I have been here, I feel that my parents have seen me mature and grow intelle...
