What a wild year 2020 has been. I made yet another move, another career change, all in the backdrop of a pandemic. I made my last trip overseas to Vietnam with a stop-over in Singapore during the Tet holiday, not knowing that a month later all movement would grind to a halt. I was fortunate enough to ride out the lockdown with a living that allowed me to work remotely, while many in the world are still eking out survival in purgatory. I am fortunate that my family are all well, including my relatives in Shanghai, who are now conversely concerned with my welfare amid COVID-19 developments in the United States. If there is one thing this pandemic has taught me, it is that nothing stays.
