  • 9 mar: left for Universal at 3 am. A long day indeed but a fun first day.
  • 10-11 mar: Universal! It was a super fun trip, and I loved immersing myself in Harry's world. But like, between Hogwarts, Hogsmeade, Diagon Alley, Kings Cross, and hearing all the British accents from Brits in line, my nostalgia for London and England was SO STRONG it was like something I could taste in my mouth. And that bus ride with the driver blasting Queen with the interior lights out. And the grouchy old couple sitting behind us. So outrageous.

  • 16 mar: my anxiety and depression are OUTRAGEOUS right now. I hope we look back on the coronavirus panic in a few months and laugh.
