My Keys to a Year in Isolation

Description (Dublin Core)

Starting on March 9, one university email followed another; the rapidly spreading pandemic meant that campus residents like me had to immediately find new housing. Unhappy and depressed with my dorm, I was actually glad at this chance to move. As soon as March 11th, I was already searching for a new place to live. Though I was relieved, I basically had to abandon my end-of-term schoolwork to secure an apartment. This came with consequences and I ended up taking three incomplete grades.

I signed a lease on March 21, 2020. A year later, COVID-19 continued to spread and I recently renewed my lease.

From top, these are my mailbox, unit, and building keys to my ~220 sq. ft. Chicago studio.
