Since we stayed in, we kinda let things go-- correction, we let ourselves go, as we haven't been feeling or looking our best. Haggard is a word that comes to mind- and woah, who wants that, right?

But now, things are looking up! The malls, the beaches, the schools and offices are open, the world is ready again for us. But how ready will you be for the world?
