On Sunday, my boyfriend and I drove up to Minnesota to pick up some things from our dystopian college campus. Housing sent out an email early last week with the details: Do you live within a six hour driving distance between campus? Perfect! Get your masks and a packing buddy to sign up for your three hour time slot today. (Disclaimer: not a direct quote)
Of course New York is not exactly a six hour drive to Minnesota, but considering my lucky boyfriend lives 5 hours and 54 minutes away (I know) from that rural midwest town, and I’ve been quarantining with him for the past couple of months, we took a car and headed north.
