Whenever I think of COVID – 19, I imagine a wildfire moving uncontrollably fast, spreading across numerous countries and killing thousands of people. It’s rude. Did this virus think how mean and unnecessary this is? No, and because of the Coronavirus I have to be in quarantine.
However, quarantine isn’t as bad as I thought it would be. I can finally just go outside and think – just sit and think about life. I love it when I get into deep thought, because I can reflect and learn something new about myself and the world around me. I also really love binge watching my favorite shows that I don’t get to watch when school is meeting in person, like Stranger Things. I admire the amazing acting and it’s an over all a great show.
One thing I have noticed about my time in quarantine is that I have spent much more time with my oldest brother, which has been nice. Not only him, but also with my family because we’re all home together. I’m grateful for this family time. I’ve also been talking to God more, telling him more about my day and just thanking him. For me, quarantine has been a blessing in disguise because I’ve been happier and more aware. I’ve realized that I don’t need other people to make me happy – all I need is good music, a good mindset and me. Oh, and TikTok because I love acting and dancing. I’m sorry people are sick and Coronavirus is generally rude, but I’ve had a great time being at home.
