Provide a brief title for the object you are contributing.

Diary entries from a person that lived through the COVID-19 pandemic

Provide us with a brief description of this object and, if it is not obvious, how it connects with the Chippewa Valley. For example, if this object is an image describe for us what the image displays and why it is significant.

This art piece includes real diary entries from someone that lived in Chippewa Falls and then moved to Eau Claire during the pandemic. My goal, and what I hope people can take away from my piece, is not for people to pity me, it is to spread awareness that eventually when the pandemic is declared officially over, it will not be over. The lingering effects of it will remain with us for several years to decades, you cannot simply erase all the issues that arose due to this pandemic, the inequality, the current crumbling health care system, the politics, the lack of empathy in society, and the physical and mental health effects it has had in many of us.
