Moving back this weekend, got the best apartment I’ve ever had for the least I’ve ever paid. Even going to be affordable after the free months expire next year. I think NYC is going to be the place to be this year.

Thank you!!

It’s chill that we’re not overrun by tourists anymore, and landlords are giving good discounts. Plus the outdoor dining (even in the cold) has a cool charm. But it was way better when Kai’s parents were still living down the street. 😉 👋🏼 miss y’all.

Hi I’m pregnant and due in august. I’m scheduled for the vaccine in two days and reading about (1) the side effects with the second dose and (2) lack of testing for those who are pregnant has me nervous about potential effects to my baby. Any thoughts on whether to get/not get the vaccine? Already consulting my doctor on this but figured y’all might be good to ask, as well.

Perspective: monogamy is anti-human nature; in this era where each parent could raise a kid independently, marriage tends to be a shackle on many aspects of life. We live once, why does society expect us to live with 1 person for 60+ years? No wonder divorce rates are through the roof!
