Today is Wednesday March 25. 13 days ago Governor Larry Hogan announced that all Maryland schools would close for two weeks amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Today the Maryland superintendent announced four more weeks of closure.
It feels weird being stuck at home. Luckily, I have siblings and Club Penguin to keep me entertained but everything feels like it’s going on a loop. The days are blending together, and I’m doing the same things over and over again to distract me from the global pandemic we’re experiencing. I genuinely miss school. Yes, it caused me a lot of stress. But it kept me busy and I got to be within 6 feet of my friends every day. I didn’t appreciate it enough while I was there.
In times like these I am extremely thankful for technology. If I wasn’t able to FaceTime or text my friends everyday I think I would go insane. I’ve been going on a lot of walks to get some fresh air, and it seems as if my entire neighborhood has the same idea.
I hate the confusion of it all. I hate not knowing when I’m going to see my friends again. We’re all living through a weird time right now and I just hope things go back to normal soon.
