The only good thing I can think of right now is our environment. And that too is a bittersweet conversation.  Being in quarantine has done a number on wildlife. Since the outbreak, sika deer have been roaming freely in Japan, and monkeys have been fighting on the streets of Thailand. But for the animals that eat leftover scraps from dumpsters, this time isn’t the best for them.

I’ve been sitting at home for the past three weeks, only ever stepping outside for short walks around my neighborhood. Never for too long, and never without protection. My days have been filled with online school, Jane Austen novels, and the harsh glow of my laptop screen. I haven’t seen my friends in weeks, a...

This would be my third column to talk about the coronavirus, but hopefully, it’ll be my last because I’m sick of even looking at the word. I’m sure many other people feel the same, and also can’t wait for quarantine to be lifted so that we can go outside and return to our normal lives.  My li...

Misinformation has constantly proven it’s worth, and we constantly fall prey to it. Our world is chaotic and the lies blend in with the truth so often that it’s hard to pick them apart.
