Ever since quarantine started, I’ve been feeling emotions that weren’t as strong before quarantine. Even though these are undesirable conditions, I had no choice but to make the best of the situation. As time went by, quarantine started to become stressful. Being trapped inside my home started to break my daily routine, and not having a physical interaction with others that aren’t my family, started to make me feel more isolated. Being trapped inside started to make me frustrated because it felt as if we were all living on our own island, and there wasn’t really anything we could do. However, this situation gave my family a chance to become closer and spend some more time together.
