Looking for something?

    I am so looking forward to visiting some of my favourite local spots in the future! This area, Prince Edward Island, is so tourism-dependent we are in for a difficult summer. The positive is that, as an island, we are able to isolate a bit easier, and have only had 26 cases so far. Assuming we can keep in-coming traffic at a minimum (and that those who do come in are responsible) we should be able to operate and pick up on a small, more winter-like scale – but it’s all so unpredictable!

    My job is also quite tourism and travel-y so I am pretty unsure about what my fate is. For now I am temporarily laid off, but it’s hard to know what happens next. I’d say I’m essential to the company, but essential when we have a tourism season, haha.

    Hope you’re doing well!

      Hey, doing well thanks. Hope you still are?

      That sounds good, the island definitely sounds a lot safer and hopefully the cases have remained low?

      I completely get that. May not be essential in this moment, but definitely when things are back in action. It’s a shame about being temporarily laid off as it leaves you a bit lost I think, but sounds like you are taking it in your stride 🙂

    My husband works in food retail while my job is to run events for kids privileged enough to go to uni so this crisis has really hit hard with feeling like I don’t do enough worthwile. I really appreciate your words about how the language can be dismissive of how every part of a whole has a purpose.

      Aww, thanks so much. That’s exactly why I wanted to write this post. I know not everyone will get it, but I’m glad you do x

I'd love to hear your thoughts!
