IMPACT 0019: FROM SURFING WAVES TO SURFING COUCHES
This letter was written during the height of the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020 as part of Dear Covid-19. Though some of the events and details in this letter may have changed since then, we hope to remember those in our community who stepped up when it mattered most. Continue to keep up with them on their social pages at @jessecolinadalia.
Ever since you came into existence, you’ve been nothing but a pain in the butt.
I MISS TRAVELLING AROUND THE WORLD FOR SURFING TRIPS, COMPETITIONS AND TRAINING.
Because of you, all my travel plans for the whole 2020 have been cancelled. You’re constantly on my mind as I have to keep thinking about the consequences of everything I do and whether it will impact my family members. Because of you, we’re all trapped at home almost losing our minds.
However, because of you, I’ve had more time to myself for self-care, learning new skills and spending more time with my family.
BECAUSE OF YOU, I’VE LEARNT TO CHERISH THE LITTLE THINGS THAT WE TOOK FOR GRANTED.
Because of you I have learnt to appreciate my friends even more than before. So thank you.
