Hello reader! Welcome to Wellness and Chill, a website dedicated to examining the intersections of life at culture, health, and current events!
Many of you are strangers who are wondering how they stumbled upon this website–don’t question it! Some of you who know me beyond your computer (or mobile) screen may be curious about why I created this website. I’ve thought a lot about how to answer this second question. I think this describes it best:
I wanted to create something that encompassed all of my identities at once. After all, I’m never only one identity at a time. I am my race, my gender, my sexuality, my profession, my regional culture, and so many other things at once. It felt disingenuous to create a website dedicated to only one of those identities. Besides, I would get bored writing about the same thing all of the time.
I want to have fun with the things that interest me and share them with you. I want this website to challenge me to continue to learn more and do more with my life. Additionally, I want to connect with people in new and meaningful ways.
I hope you come with me on this journey.
