For those that have read my previous articles, know that this past few months hasn't been easy for me or my heart. During my time of grieving, I would often find myself googling what I should do and what other people have done to mend their broken hearts. Some of what I found was useful and some not so much. I'd loved watching and listening to Ted Talks, and fortunately, I found a number of them that were super helpful and made feel less alone in terms of the pain that I was going through. So if you're going through a heartbreak, I hope this list provides you some solace.

Cheese and crackers are one of the best snacks ever invented by mankind. They're the perfect comfort food for whatever you're feeling, reminiscing about or thinking about. Cheese and crackers will always be there (unless you don't have any in the fridge) by your side to munch on through the good times and the bad times, and the in-between times. Heck, I'm even munching on some as I'm writing this article. They're such legends. So, without further ado, here is a list of all the times to eat cheese and crackers. Enjoy :)
The following is a stream of consciousness about loneliness during CO-VID 19:
