Dear covid diary,
This year, to say the least, has been wack. Sorry I shouldn’t say wack. It’s not grammatically correct, however, I have noticed some change in life because of the whole covid-19 situation. Some people who hated going outside their
homes are all now crying about being stuck inside. I mainly see this in half introverts who love to stay indoors but don’t like to have company unless it’s their friends. And I noticed that extroverts are taking this the hardest. Be it those who actually like school or those who don’t, the covid-19 pandemic has hit everyone very hard, even those that don’t go to school.
But what I just said is generalities. During the Covid-19 pandemic (and while it’s still going on), many things happened. First off I missed out on an 18th birthday where I could’ve gone to a buffet with some friends, second
off I missed out on graduation where I could’ve gone to a buffet with some friends and lastly, something I view as a positive, was that I didn’t have to take a final test. In a group aspect, covid-19 has impacted my family in a way that made us more active as a group. And as a community impact,
I’ve noticed that people aren’t hanging out by my park as often as before. People are also showing their true colors by being morons and wearing a mask but not covering their nose, like no stop, a mask is supposed to cover your nose as well as your mouth. So thank you to all the people who actually properly wear masks.
For any significant event, I missed out on my 18th birthday which for me sucked because Filipinos usually throw a big party equivalent to a quinceanera. It really sucked because this year I was hoping to get a lot of money to put it simply. But with quarantine, we just had a personal party
and my mother cooked a lot of food which, in my opinion, makes up for a lot of it. Sounds selfish but my mother cooks really good food so it makes up for it.
As for acts of kindness, while working the drive through at night, I’ve noticed that people tend to pay for the car behind them. I think that that’s nice so that’s a good thing.
Lastly, what about life after quarantine. I think people are going to act like nothing happened and treat post-quarantine the same as their pre-quarantine life.
Read this future me and let me know how accurate I was
with the last one.
