Sick In Spain

I made the decision to study abroad in Barcelona during the fall of 2021 with the understanding that there was a risk of getting sick during the pandemic. I found out in my first few weeks during my semester that I would be quarantined for two weeks after testing positive for COVID-19. I had to figure out how to live on my own without leaving my apartment and navigate what it is like to be sick in another country. It was a rough start to my semester, but it turns out there was a silver lining!
