The last time I rode a roller-coaster I was 21 years old, dumb, and definitely NOT sober. Today, I’m a little older, smarter, sober, but on a different roller-coaster called the coronavirus (A.K.A COVID-19) pandemic. COVID-19 has taken the World for a wild ride and I don’t see anyone getting off anytime soon.
The last four weeks have been some of the most exciting in my life.
With growing hysteria surrounding the coronavirus, staying in China meant facing travel restrictions. As a person who’s chasing financial independence to gain ultimate flexibility, the idea of being “locked-down” in a Chinese city doesn’t seem too appealing.
Therefore, I left China, temporarily. I have every intention of returning once there is a realistic solution to this virus.
I’m not concerned about my health. At least not when I glance at the reported statistics.
However, when I read an article on the news or social media, I walk away thinking this is the beginning of the next zombie apocalypse. I have to stop myself from panic buying water, guns, and bullets.
I could be wrong, but I think we are far from a reenactment of the Walking Dead.
