    The Ephemeral Nature of Normal

    Here’s a question for you, now that we’re a little halfway through this mishigas of a year: what does “normal” even mean anymore?

    I won’t quote dictionaries at you; you know better than anyone else what normal looks like for you. As humans, we’re simple creatures of habit.
