I’m thankful for the moments of this year that have led me to this moment right now.

I’m thankful for people reaching out with their feelings post-election and realizing that everyone cares — kind of fucking amazing!

Aaron, resident of the Red Victorian Hotel, hostel & co-living space, SunChilds Parlour, a pop-up experiment happening inside of that

I am thankful for discovering this collective space for them allowing me to make it my home for the past eight months, which has allowed me to survive cancer treatment. I just got the all-clear last week. And I wouldn’t have done that if it hadn’t been for this amazing community of people. So, yay co-living, and yay Haight Street!
