It was March 14th, that was the day we learned about the index case. It was scary, my generation and I did not handle the news well. I was getting ready to party until I got put in what felt like a cell. Not quickly enough it was announced that there is a shelter in place.
When my sister came back I was not allowed to see her face-to-face. Self-Isolation of 14 days turned to 60 and I want to raise hell. I wanted to go to Israel this summer, I miss my cousin Morel. 2020 was supposed to be my year, I was ready to have a boldface.
I am going to stay positive even inside so I can flatten the curve. I go through my days of school and go on runs when I can. Learning to love my family and not let them get on my nerve.
I social distance with friends because it’s something I deserve. I’ve gone out in the sun a lot because I’m happier when I’m tan. I’m truly confused about everything so I just sit back and observe.
