Blogging during a pandemic

These days, I am involved in what feels like a million different things. Remember when we planned for things to go a certain way and then the pandemic said “NO”? Well, that’s the scenario under which I am operating.
I host a YouTube show (in Wolof) where I publish weekly videos talking about different societal topics in Senegal. It keeps me busy as I am constantly recording, cribbing notes, and editing.
I still co-host a podcast, called Joko (you can find it on Spotify or Apple Podcast. Just look up “Joko Arame” or “Joko Aida”). We talk about different topics, in English, from a Senegalese-American perspective. You should check it out.
I still work a full-time job.
Oh and I am still enrolled in a Master’s Program, taking two classes this semester.
I’m not bragging, I promise. Quite the opposite actually. I’m boo-hooing because of how busy this all keeps me and how much time it takes away from writing. It’s truly my outlet and I love being able to sit down and jot down my thoughts.
That being said, blogging during this pandemic, with all that I have going on, is going to look a little different. I can’t commit to weekly posts; I will post ad-hoc. Please forgive me in advance and thank you for your understanding and support.
