As we enter day 23,421 of lockdown, we begin to accept it (sort of) as the new normal.
We’re at home baking and tik toking our way through, yearning for some semblance of the reality we used to know.
Some have been able to slow down and take stock of life. While others have felt the confinement and uncertainty unbearable.
There is no right way to feel right now.
There’s no pressure to bake banana bread and be fluent in Spanish by the end of this lockdown. But if that helps you, good for you.
We’re all doing the best we can and that’s good enough.
We check in with the stars to see what May has in store.
