An Indoor Pandemic Experience of a Teenager

The boredom and free access to sharing an article motivated me to write this. Feel free reading it! Hope you get what I'm saying :)

No one did not know that a coronavirus outbreak would merge gradually into the lives of hundreds to millions of people who are unprepared in a span of months. What more can you expect to the unfortunate, reluctant, or even to us, Generation Z?

 

In the Philippines, when quarantine struck us last April, the majority of the students were not able to say their goodbyes to their classmates, friends, and teachers. As we looked into the news updates, some of us may even thought that it would be the “end” or it was sort of a zombie apocalypse. Aside from the negative impacts to different aspects of the world, I would say our day-to-day schedules changed—morning is our sleeping time while nighttime is the new “morning”.

 

On my side, I have been so bored of repeating the same routines every single day—from playing video games, binging Netflix, talking to friends, doing household chores, and exercising. However, at the end of the day, I am blessed to be still considered safe and uninfected as well as living at least peacefully or comfortably.

 

Moreover, all of us students were affected by the adjusted education system set by the Department of Education (DepED) through the online learning platform. Although the youth and even some alumni rallied or raised awareness in different social media platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter to implement an “academic freeze”. Given the pros and cons, online classes for me were fun, easy, and flexible—of course while playing video games during lectures.

 

To end, the point of my whole journey in this pandemic is to keep on thriving in spite of everyone living on different nutshells. How have you been struggling or living the COVID-19 pandemic?
