Week in review: 23 – 29 March 2020

Questions that I asked myself this week:

  • Why does that mask poke into my eyes?
  • Will I ever be out on the streets again and not suffer anxiety?
  • Why do my parents not listen and still go to the supermarket every time they run out of bread rolls? Like seriously???
  • When will the city clerk open again?
  • What happens if we just can’t get married and won’t be able to apply for my green card?
  • Why do I still watch and read the news several times per day?
  • When will Rich have to directly care for Coronavirus patients?
  • Who is actually going to work on the hospital ship and in Javits Center?
  • Mobile morgues – really? Did you know that the public Bellevue Hospital is only a few blocks from us?
  • What if I won’t fit into my bridal gown when this is over?
  • When will the schools open again?
  • What happens to my job if there is a depression and people can’t afford private schools anymore?
  • How did we already run out of Corona beer?
  • Where are the Avengers now that we need them?
  • How can people still believe in that president?
  • How did I end up in a country with an awful health system?
  • Can we just pack our suitcases and move to Turkey?
  • Oh, Turkey has the virus, too, and an awful government who doesn’t deal well with it, too?
  • How many weeks will we need to do the first basic AcroYoga pose?
  • How can my cat be so cute and fluffy at all times?
