Do you remember those days when you could have sleepovers with your friends and enjoy a night of movies and gossip? Well, yeah, it was just about five months ago, but doesn’t it feel like forever? All the hype of staying home in PJs and WFH is over, and we’ve just turned into mopey souls who need a hug!
