Honestly, Id probably just find something else to complain about.
I would have gotten my tooth surgery done and over with
I would have taken a kick ass trip to Japan which would have been way outside of my budget!
I would have got married today
Would have kept my job, gotten a raise, a sizeable bonus, moved out of my parents house, and ultimately taken my plunge into independence.
I would be working a part time job in a failing weed shop which probably would have been shut down by now.
Instead, I’m now the manager, have fixed nearly 100 issues I inherited from the previous manager, store sales have improved greatly, and I suddenly have a career.
All thanks to the global pandemic. Yay?
I moved to New York City in February, a few weeks before the lockdowns started. I had a whole binder of things I wanted to see and do and a job I was excited about. But I got laid off as soon as things got started and everything I wanted to do became impossible, and some of it is probably never coming back.
I would have been taking the train to every station, catching impromptu shows, hunting down the best open mics, trying to pin down the best pizza and burger, putting together a d&d group, and traveling to other parts of the north eastern us that I’ve always wanted to see. I had big plans for this year, and I’m so heartbroken that all I’ve experienced is an endless chorus of sirens.
