COVID Reflection

Date: 5/10/20

Today is Mother’s Day. It was the first year ever where I greeted my grandparents, uncles, aunts and cousins without hugging or touching hands. There was this aroma of awkwardness idling throughout the air which made me and my siblings feel very uncomfortable. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, I haven’t been able to see my relatives in a long time, so I felt like I wasn’t as close to them as before the whole world shut down.

This whole pandemic has allowed me to think and focus on myself. My daily routine consists of waking up for class, doing homework, exercising, playing Xbox, and sleeping. I have found more appreciation for all the nurses, doctors, and people who are saving other people’s lives because times like these are when our true colors bleed through. I have so much respect and love for the people risking their lives helping others. I also feel sad and worried about the millions of Americans who lost their jobs and are searching for their next meal. This whole experience allowed me to be more grateful and appreciative for what I have. Hopefully this will all clear up and everything will go back to normal.

Logging off,
