Each day is filled with emptiness as this new world of masks, gloves, and fear of disease plagues our daily existence. I need more proactive ways to go about the day without sleeping till noon, finding myself in front of the television, or eating enough calories to feed a full family. This quarantine still sucks. Adaption to our new reality depletes all my energy as I realize it’ll be months or maybe even years before things go back to normal. The hours spent social distancing further the undeniable circumstances that life has changed. I wonder if I’m the only one facing daily boredom, complete exhaustion from isolation, or pure aggravation from hearing Covid this and Corona that.
[bf_image id="b85xj3f5bxrn77hnj2w9zhj"] Even with news about a new vaccine, there’s no relief for most as the populace doubts the effects of the ‘cure’. Despite how long we’ve waited for a medical solution, no one trusts it enough to want to take it. What if it has more bad side effects than good? Though that question is for another time. I miss the norm. Since the pandemic, I’ve become prone to sleep and eat more than usual. Then there’s always the numerous hours spent on social media like Facebook, Twitter, or Snapchat. It’s been a bummer. On the bright side, we are not alone. To anyone experiencing the same boredom, exhaustion, and complete repulsive attitude towards this pandemic, we are in this together.
