“I’ve seen myself in the mirror and I don’t need anyone to tell me it’s time to get out of my iso tracky pants. Prior my ‘rona redundancy (insert ambient screaming here), I felt empowered and even a little bit important and now, with restrictions easing, I’m ready to feel like that again and get back to work.” – Kath Farley
