living in the corona era



I feel that it has become more realistic to imagine a future coexisting with the pandemic rather than the post-pandemic. It may have become a harsh reality for the Earth and humans where we don’t even know what it looks like to “win” against the virus. Maybe our only choice is to accept it, wait, and live trying to keep it off our minds.


I’m living in Korea right now, and I have been under tremendous stress and fear since late February listening to the daily news about the novel coronavirus and the increasing number of cases. I watch every interaction and move I make, and I can’t help but feel nervous when I’m out.
