1. Belly laughs with friends after two years. This pandemic sucks and it has permanently fucked us up, but when it comes to the real stuff, I’m glad to know I have them. And they know they have me.
2. Holiday time off. Night shift is rough, and I won’t be able to keep this up for too long, so time off is a blessing. No alarms. Being able to do things in the day without being utterly exhausted, almost incoherent. Sleeping. It’s a lot.
3. Love. And I don’t mean the romantic stuff, but the other forms of it. Love for friends. For amazing people. For emotional support animals. For people that are in the background. Love is a difficult, complicated, heartbreaking thing, but I’m thankful I get to experience it.
