A Teen's Take
April 9, 2020
POMEROY–It’s weird to think that our life routines, as we once knew them, are gone for now. What is even more odd is I’ve worn sweats for the past week and the only people I’ve talked to are my family and friends through social media.
When this whole lockdown thing started, I was bummed t I couldn’t see anyone and complete my spring sports, but I was also excited to be stress-free for a little while. I was terribly wrong to think there would be even the slightest bit of stress–free, care–free, fun. It seems like we can’t go out to get everyday items without wearing a mask and measuring the distance between us and someone else. My mom, brother, and I can’t even all go into Costco together. This is definitely something I will remember.
I just feel awful for this year’s seniors. The biggest thing that I’m struggling with during this time off is getting motivated about anything in general. I procrastinate doing my chores and put off school work until later. I’ve been way less motivated to work out, even though now would be a great time.
It’s hard to want to do anything new when you’ve been doing the same things every day for the last two weeks. I just hope this all blows over in time for us to have some summer fun.
I hope everyone is staying strong and positive. We will get through this.
