forever if i could

It just feels like this pandemic will never end and it's depressing as hell.

So far we've managed to avoid getting Covid, but for how long? I got my booster shot a month ago (it knocked me out, literally—the day after the shot, I had vertigo and passed out, also had a fever and couldn't keep down food). C. gets his booster next week. I'm still worried though.

I'm supposed to go to NYC in January for a 10-day grad school residency and now I'm worried it will be moved online but I'm also worried about traveling.

On a less depressing note, I finished my first full semester of the MFA. It was a ton of work (maybe taking two classes was a bit ambitious) and it felt like I spent half my life at a coffee shop working until they kicked me out...but I loved it. I loved being in conversation with my professors and classmates. I loved digging into the craft of nonfiction and reading interesting books and generally having the space to push myself as a creative person. I would do this school/MFA thing forever if I could.

It will be interesting to see what the next semester brings. I wonder if I'll like/connect with my new adviser or classmates as well. I have to tell myself it's okay if I don't. It's all a process. It's all part of the process.
