The other day, I tried to find an old post of mine on Facebook in which I mentioned MLK. I didn’t find what I was seeking, but I found another instead. Strangely enough, this post does not mention Martin Luther King, Jr., MLK, or any variation of his name, but the powers of Facebook pulled it up for me anyway. This is a post from November 10, 2016.
The post received 24 likes and five loves, 11 comments, and one share.
In one of the comments, my friend wrote, “This is worthy of a Medium post.”
In my last post, I shared how the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted—even improved—my friend’s life in Iowa.
Today we are following the experience of my other friend who lives in the Boston area. In his story, there is no ER visit like what we saw in The Stories That Don’t Make Headlines. There is no delayed medical treatment like what happened in Tell Me About Yourself: When Family Planning Is Put on Hold. At the same time, there is not a long list of ways that his life is more convenient like what we read in Tell Me About Yourself: Admitting that the Pandemic Makes Your Life Easier.
As he would tell you, not a lot has changed in his life since the pandemic hit.
Interestingly enough, even when a global pubic health crisis does not dramatically change your life, it still might transform how you perceive it.

How has the pandemic changed how you perceive your life?
Here we will find out how it has changed his perception of his life.
It has been 21 months since I last wrote on here. Typically, I’d say that life got busy, but it was more than that. Since my last post, I went through multiple transitions in life. I was working so hard to adapt to changes that writing a blog could no longer be a priority.
