But I was a senior
As the days go by so many emotions come to mind. I don’t even know how to feel, think or do anymore. Most of the students feel like being at home is fun and not having to go to school anymore but no me, a senior that was looking forward to being in school the last few months that we had with our friends and teachers. Sadness and disappointment are not what I would call this feeling that I have. It’s so unexplainable. Being at home has given me so much to think about and planning for the future is the only good thing that has come with this long time off. I have already planned many things that I hope I get to actually accomplish. Having this “free time” comes with cleaning. Like if you live in a Mexican household it means cleaning every day like Mexican parents need to take a chill pill.
Having all of my siblings and parents home 24/7 has driven me crazy. Like CRAZY. You hear my little brother and sister fighting over a ball that’s not even theirs, it’s actually mine and hearing my mom sing to Grupo Pesado, cumbias even huapangos at 11 am in the morning like what does that woman feel, she should be in bed by that time. Then you have Pilar. She is one of the four dogs that we have and she is barking every morning at a wall!? Like what does the wall have that you are barking at it, “like chill dude!”
All I see on Facebook is COVID 19 more people affected and more cases have hit the united states than china. It puts the people in panic mode and goes out and buy the toilet paper like if one of the symptoms is Diarrhea o and we can’t forget the people with their sensible butts taking the baby wipes, like aren’t you Mexican use the “calcetin viejo” o take a shower hey it’s better than with leaves. As the week goes by I see the cabinets slowly going empty and empty. My brother has finished all the pop tarts like um excuse me I need snacks to munch on too. Then we have my sister who has been eating cheese sticks in the living room while hiding from us. My siblings are crazy and weird, But there is my favorite time of the day which is coloring. I and my sister sit down at the kitchen table and color. She is quiet. My other brothers are also quiet and we just have total silence in the house and we can just color in peace.
I just need my daily routine back, I miss doing my makeup and waking up for school every morning, I miss those naps during the first and 8th period. I miss Mrs.Ponce saying we have 1 minute to get to class or the teachers chismeando in the hallway even the lunch lady saying to go back because I forgot to get a fruit. Like ugh, I need that back. Why can’t all this be over and just bring back our daily routines, prom, graduation and the toilet paper being back in stock.
