Turbulence – please fasten your seatbelts.
This week was bad. Last week I was able to go out, and it still didn’t feel completely on lockdown, but this week, that changed. My mother no longer lets me go out ANYWHERE. However, today I’m going back to work! I’m very excited but scared. I’m happy to get out of the house already and do something different; however; it really does frighten me into having some physical contact with so many people. Anyways, school is so much easier. It seems like teachers are patient and understandable. I no longer feel the stress I felt before. So, seeing things better, I think this week was actually a lot better. I guess I was right things do get better.
I’m doing a lot better in my classes now that they’re online. Again, I believe it’s because my teachers are going easier on us; however, that doesn’t bother me. It’s actually fun to see what you discover about yourself and even the people around you after you spend so much time together. During this time of need is when you also realize who’s actually by your side. Not trying to be all dramatic and sentimental, but how many people have actually looked out for you and asked how you’re doing? At the end of the day this is a fun experience right? Too soon to joke? But no for real can you imagine being in your 50s and telling your children how you and the whole country had to go on lockdown because there was a deadly virus killing everyone—telling them how you literally had to stay inside and minimize all human contact to try and protect yourself and your loved ones. I can’t wait for a year from now when someone pulls out a show about this. Where everything we’re going through just seems like a distant memory.
In all realness, I can’t wait to actually go back to normal. To be able to go and get some raspas and stop by the dollar store. To be able to give people their food without using a basket. It’s just something that I actually want to hurry up. Not trying to bring my religiousness into this, but it’s actually scary to see my country this way. I could go out and start saying that this is in the Bible and Christ is coming soon but what good would that do? That would just scare people not actually cause a conviction in their heart. Anyways, I do miss going to church. They’re all closed and are having service online, but it’s not the same thing. However, I know next week will be even better. Honestly, I can’t wait to see how things clear up. Remember how I said that all that the news was transferring were corona news? Well, this week, they actually started showcasing other items.
