How to pay bills, search for jobs, and help others during a pandemic

Hey friends! I know it’s been a minute. I had surgery at the beginning of March. It was daunting and scary, but I’m all good now. (Maybe I’ll blog about this at a later time.) As I’ve been working to get back into a normal routine, everything around me has changed significantly in the wake of the pandemic. Normal doesn’t seem to exist anymore. So like the rest of the world, I’m trying to define my new normal.


I know many of you are thinking about how to stay sane during this time, how to make ends meet or simply how to stay connected with family and friends. Here are a few resources to help that may help:
