March 13th marked one year since we sat in our 6th-period class and heard Dr. Lois say the school would be closed for two weeks.
What a ride it’s been since then. It went from two weeks to the rest of the school year to this entire school year, and we are just barely seeing the possibility of reopening next school year. I don’t know about you, but since the start of quarantine, I’ve gone through a path of so many self-discoveries and realizations about things from work habits to what I want out of life.
And as negative as quarantine seems to be, I feel as though I’ve gotten a lot out of it and want to highlight the bright side. I got closer to people I probably wouldn’t have, had things stayed the same. I became more of whom I wanted to be. I came out to my family and friends and came out of my shell by joining clubs. Without being away from the in-person school environment, I doubt I would be the person I am today. So, as bad as it sounds, I’m slightly happy I’ve been stuck at home for a year. Happy quarantine-adversary!
