My life was pretty normal about 7 months ago, I was your average 17 year old. My grades were good in school, I was working a job, played sports, hung out with my friends and attended extracurricular activities. At the time I took my ACT and was waiting for prom to come around, but then everyone’s life changed right before our eyes. “BREAKING NEWS, there are at least 1,267 cases of the coronavirus in the United States, March 11, 2020”. Wow, okay well I hope it doesn’t affect us maybe it is just like the flu, ( I thought.)
At this point the US death toll is rolling over 1,000 cases being detected on the US soil. Unfortunately, it hit home and my school was being let out because we had a statewide order to be placed on quarantine. ( And my mom said outside was going anywhere, yeah okay! ) Now it is summer and my junior year is gone. The latest fashion statement for us.. MASKS, everywhere you go you need your mask, everywhere!. Things kind of turned around for me.
I got my first car on April 1st. Did I say things turned around? Well atleast I thought, BOOM my mother and I have tested positive for Covid 19. A total bummer ! Imagine being placed on quarantine, but only allowed to go out for essentials and now having to stay in the house for 2 weeks straight. ( if I could use emojis for this paragraph they would look so depressed and angry.) I really hope you did not think that was the only bad thing that happened to me.
Oh yeah I LOST MY JOB! Turns out bringing an excuse from the doctor saying you are cleared from Covid really is not an excuse. Well here I was (were in August now) looking for a job because I have responsibilities and bills. I really wish I was six years old at this point. September comes around, and it’s no surprise at all that my car has a problem. My flex pipe is literally detached from my muffler and my car sounds like a four wheeler. I got a call one evening saying i have an Interview for Taco Bell. Excitedly, I started making plans to get my car fixed. Good news I got the job and my car is fixed . ( By the way I love my new job and coworkers.) To conclude my story on how the Pandemic affected my life I think it is just like the word Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.
( VERY LONG AND UNNECESSARY.)
