This is a story about hope, family, and finding love. Though the events are real, I’m sensitive to the topic and promise a HEA we all need to escape.
I’m an anxious nerdy girl living in a turbulent world.

We’re in the midst of a pandemic. I live with my family in our cramped apartment where privacy comes at a premium. May is going to be one heck of a meltdown. To top it off, I’ve been crushing on my boss and used a dating app to get over him. I was supposed to meet my online date for the first time when the city put a shelter in place order, and now…we have a Skype date to meet for the very first time. I’m pretty sure I’m going to die a virgin before this thing ends.

It’s the end of my world as I know it, and I still haven’t figured out if I feel fine.
