Covid-19 and my life

Hannah Lutz

April 02, 2020

 

The past couple weeks have been very hectic. Between what you hear on the news and what you hear in your own town, I don’t think anyone truly knows what to do. 

Personally, my time off from school has made me realize how much I take school for granted. It’s a great example of how hard you can work to get somewhere and how easily that all can be taken away from you. Never once did I think my senior year of high school would be anything other than normal. 

The fact that we will not go back to school is finally starting to sink in. After years of school, I won’t even get to walk at graduation. I won’t get to see my mom crying in the crowd of parents. 

Not only did COVID-19 steal my senior year, it also stole numerous lives. It’s heartbreaking sitting on your couch watching the death toll on the news rise every hour. This entire ordeal is a nightmare. Don’t even get me started on this quarantine. The only thing keeping me from losing my sanity is facetime. The only human interaction I have  with people other than my parents is at work. Even there, I don’t want to be close to anyone for fear of catching the virus. 

Believe it or not, I actually miss school and all of my teachers. I’m not learning anything in online school. I’m simply doing the work. The whole point of going to school is to learn and retain information, and I can’t even remember what I did last week. 

On behalf of the senior class and everyone affected by COVID-19, I’m ready for this all to be over.
