A Teen's Take


March 19, 2020

POMEROY–This whole Coronavirus situation has all of our lives turned upside down. It’s weird. I went into this year thinking this was going to be my year. I was going to get healthier and live a little bit more. Turns out there’s a pandemic that has closed our school, put a hold on sports and other school and social activities. The one cancellation I have no problem with is State testing, but it’s disturbing to think that our school is now closed due to the Coronavirus when a couple months earlier we were joking about “what if”.

Honestly, I’m worried. I am thinking about things like spring sports and being able to have fun this summer without having to constantly wash my hands. I am worried about the people who have it and the many who have been exposed.

My plan is to spend the next six weeks earning a little money and spending time with my friends. I’m still taking standard precautions like washing my hands, but I’m not going to stay in my house and bore myself until I lose my mind. I couldn’t. We don’t have a lot of toilet paper and you can’t find it anywhere. Seriously though, I intend to live my life as is and hope everyone around me is healthy.

I hope everyone is doing alright and staying healthy. Good luck!
