On Coronacation



The coronavirus continues to impact students across the globe as they transition to online schooling.

If I was told one month ago that I would be doing online school and that the world was ending I wouldn’t believe it. It’s crazy how things can be shaken up so quickly. I would love this time off if it wasn’t on these conditions. I can’t even hang out with my friends. I am cooped up in my room just eating away my boredom.

As for my family, they are doing pretty well. My brother had a corona scare, but just ended up having allergies that he had not gotten in the five years he was in college. My oldest sister still has to go into work at the hospitals. How crazy is it that someone would want to get back surgery during these times. Well, I guess it is the perfect time! My other sister is a senior at Alabama and is dreading the fact she has to come home early from her last year in college. I would too! Even if you got to experience the dream college life, it would suck to not get to end the four years walking across the stage at graduation. My dad says I can’t buy anything because the stock market is pretty wack right now. I would be upset if I could go to the mall but I can’t even leave my house. My mom has been very paranoid throughout these couple of weeks but my dad just keeps telling her she needs to take a chill pill. As for me, I don’t hate not having school. I just miss being able to see my friends everyday and hate the fact that I could be making so many memories during this time of my life but I’m trapped in my house. I had so many plans before this all happened. My parents were leaving for like three weeks so I had all my “parties” planned in my head. Although they aren’t leaving they rescheduled their trips so I still have something to look forward to. I just wish it would all go away so I could get back to my normal life. It’s crazy that one day this will be in history textbooks.

I’m scared that we will never get to go back to school this year. If this happens, I will never get to finish the year off with my favorite teachers. I feel like high school has gone by so fast and I just want it to slow down so I can get the most out of it.

Throughout the boredom and the craziness that the coronavirus has brought upon my life, I just wish for everyone to stay healthy and for it to be over so we can go back to school and then leave for the summer!
