China rejects WHO plan for study of COVID-19 origin http://reut.rs/3zq311U
I'll take the vaccine, when the opportunity presents itself. With all the uppity culture on it on both sides, it feels like just a gamble at this point. Parents have taken it, they seem fine. And if I die from this in 3 years, at least I won't have to listen to some jackass screaming "I told you so!". God knows I've got plenty of opportunities to die.

Alright, I guess I should explain: the U.S. embassy in Malawi is closed, possibly until September. Naturally, waiting isn't really an option for us. So, my parents are going on a flight tomorrow to Nairobi, Kenya to process their VISAs there. Me and my sisters are hanging back at Mzuzu. Yesterday was my grand-uncle's birthday, too. And my toddler cousin's too, on my mom's side.
I saw that movie Arbitrage, I like the song at the credits.
Björk - I See Who You Are
It's mesmerising, in a way. But uncomfortable. Like, listening to it feels like holding in a breath and getting that dazed feeling. When I listen to the lyrics closely, it's sentiment is about staying in the moment in spite of the endless march of time. It's scary but comforting. I don't know why it's stayed in my head so much. I guess I like it.
I guess I want to leave some kind of legacy? Like, I want to be immortalised after I die. I feel like if I died and there wasn't any trace that I had lived, what was the point? But on that, nothing will ever be good enough. Everyone eventually gets forgotten, everything eventually ends. It's scary to think about. And I feel like there's no way out, either. I feel like if I lived forever, I'd eventually forget myself. And that's no better than death...
