    Dear Aiyana:

    Five years looking for a job is a long time. I hope that your self employment idea materializes. Your younger sister, did she seem annoyed or angry when she told you that you “can’t give up and that her boyfriend applies for jobs”? I wonder what about her words and delivery caused you to think that she was condescending to you.

    “Also, are your travel borders opened?”- who asked that, your sister, or..?

    Hey Anita.

    No. She wasn’t exactly annoyed or angry. It was just stuff that I had already heard a thousand times before. Plus, she was opening a package while doing it. I just wanted some encouragement as in “You’re doing a good job finding anything you can to get employed.” I already know the world doesn’t owe me anything. I just want to catch a lucky break.

    At this point, I’m just doing me. I don’t even give a crap about that lady who once thought I was insane for wanting to be a famous actress. It happened a long time ago, but she was basically a writer like me and for some reason, it never seemed like she could be pleased with anything. I’m glad I don’t talk to her anymore though because she once called me bipolar, which for the record, is something I don’t have. What a gaslighting jerk. She’s bitter too. Ironically, she writes erotica even though she told me that she’s remaining celibate.

    Other than that, I asked you about your travel borders because I’ve always wanted to travel around the world. I know I’ll achieve my dreams and no one will stop me.

    Dear Aiyana:

    I like how you use humor in your writing (erotica/ celibacy). I understand about your sister: you wanted encouragement and she gave you none, plus she repeated what you heard many times before, and that wasn’t helpful to you. The lady you mentioned, the one who called you bipolar, my goodness, that’s rude! You  face in the photo  fits my perception of a famous actress face. (I don’t understand what you mean by “travel borders”).

    Dear Anita:

    You took the words right out of my mouth, but in a good way.

    I meant airports that were open, but if you don’t still don’t understand, that’s alright.

    And it’s true. I used to be in my high school drama club and I acted in a few plays.

    How are you dealing with Covid-19 in your country? Are you following the regulations? I would love it if I won an Academy Award for my acting. I don’t even know if that’s happening now. The future seems so unsure for everybody.

    Oh, and I just had a Duh moment. I can’t travel anywhere because there’s a pandemic. I hope you are staying safe though. I’m still wearing masks when I’m out, avoiding crowds, and washing my hands as often as possible.

    Dear Aiyana:

    I don’t know what airports are open or to what extent, I know there are lots of travel restrictions and requirements to be quarantined upon arrival to different countries. As far as how I am dealing with Covid-19: I feel isolated, not able to socialize for over three months, since the lockdown. I am troubled by the fact that we are experiencing a pandemic, that people suffer illness and death because of the pandemic, and that the economy has plummeted.

    Like you wrote, “The future seems so unsure for everybody”.

    Good talking to you though!

    *I do follow regulations, wearing a mask when in a store, or a supermarket, washing hands, keeping hands away from my face, etc. I read your second post, and glad you are taking precautions as well and keeping yourself as safe as possible.

    Dear Anita,

    Even if you are isolated, at least you have me and other people that you can talk to over the Internet. For that, we should be grateful. Although, I do want to roll my eyes at people who act like morons who don’t follow basic health procedures.

    The protests over black people being killed by the police are still happening. I haven’t gone to any because I want to stay safe from the Corona virus. I don’t know what to do, Anita. If it wasn’t for the pandemic, I would be doing everything in my power to try to get to Canada. America just doesn’t have a soul, anymore. I don’t mean to get political, but given what’s happened these past four years, I feel that I need to say something. I’m glad you’re still safe and following the rules.

    If the pandemic ever lifts up and it’s safe for us to go out again, I’ll try to go and leave behind a country I’m embarrassed to say that I’m a citizen of now. I know you should be proud of where you come from, and I am. But when you look at people who look like you getting killed for no good reason, you start to question if you deserve to belong in America. I even told my Twitter followers not to be surprised if I end up in Canada since I’m seriously considering it now.

    I’ve never had citizenship in another country. I know it will be time consuming and expensive, but I won’t keep living in America so that a white person shoots me and I end up another hashtag on social media where people will forget me after a while.

    Dear Aiyana:

    You shared earlier today that you’ve been looking for employment for a long time. You know that when you apply for a job you have to present your education, what qualifies you to do the job well, experience.. you have to show for office jobs let’s say, that you have good enough writing skills, that you can read and write and whatnot, basic things.. and yet, to be the president of our country, you don’t have to know how to read and write beyond the third or fourth grade, you don’t have to be educated, you don’t even have to be able to complete a sentence which makes sense grammatically or otherwise.

    I wish we had a different political system, such that will have minimum requirements for the nation’s president job!!!

    Regarding the demonstrations, black lives matter, politics, I watch the Trevor Noah Social distancing Daily Show, I love his input, the discussions he has with guests, his humor. He has a lot to say about racial injustice in America.

    Have you considered moving to the EU?
