After a long unprecedented year, full of highs and lows, I think it's safe to say that we all need a fresh start. 2020 gave us a global pandemic, business and school shutdowns worldwide, social distancing, and a lot of Netflix bingeing. For some, this past year has been a year of counting our blessings and remaining positive in difficult situations. For others, the year was full of too many hardships to count. With fingers crossed, I'm entering 2021 with the hope that we will find a sense of normalcy in our day to day lives. Until then, here's a few things we can all look forward to as we leave this year behind.

According to organizers of the Tokyo games this upcoming summer the events will be,"The most innovative ever organised, and will rest on three fundamental principles to transform the world: striving for your personal best (achieving your personal best); accepting one another (unity in diversity); and passing on a legacy for the future (connecting to tomorrow)".

By the end of 2021, "normalcy" might not be a dream of the past. According to Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, 70 to 80 percent of of the population must be vaccinated in the second quarter of 2021 for the US to reach the herd immunity threshold needed to end 2021 free of COVID-19. Campaigns are already underway to make this pandemic free world a reality.

An Open Letter To The Doctor That Almost Changed My Life Forever

I remember the day exactly. It was my second day back home for winter break and my mom has been suffering from a terrible migraine that started 2 days before. The day my life almost changed forever was Saturday, December 22nd. On Friday, December 21st, I came home early morning to surprise my mom as she was not expecting me until Saturday. As I walked into my house, however; I was faced with my mom laying on her bed, post throwing up. I remember helping her come down the stairs so we can at least watch TV and talk as she rests on the couch. Surprisingly enough, as the day went by she started feeling better and better to the point where we even left the house to visit a friend of hers.

Saturday, December 22nd.
